Business Support without the bs

Client Reviews

Homesmiths Ltd was Going Long Consulting’s second client way back in 2013. The businesses Managing Director Jacqui Smith gave us this lovely testimonial;

As small business owners my husband and I were looking for support and coaching through an exciting period of growth. We approached Chris, liking his jargon free and straight forward approach. Chris is not there to direct from a far and judge, he rolls his sleeves up and offers practical support in areas where we cannot do it ourselves and encouragement and guidance where we can. If you are an SME with plans for growth or need for change, Chris will deliver.
