I met Doug Walker in a Business for Business Network Meeting in Saanichton in January 2018. In that short meeting, I got the immediate impression that Doug had a lot of business experience and knowledge, and needing a new perspective on my businesses, I wanted to tap into that. So I hired Doug. We have worked together for over 6 months and I am extremely satisfied with the results I have seen, and continue to see. Doug helps me see aspects of my business that need my attention, and those that aren't as important (setting priorities!) He has helped me achieve more confidence in my abilities to run a successful business and I feel like he is always there for me. I've had to ask for advice on finding balance between work and family, personnel relationships, financial situations and creating a vision for my business and life. I could not be more pleased to be working with Doug. He is a life saver!!
John is a great business expert and coach. Through the BC FoodWorks program we contracted John to provide business coaching and training to the program clients as they all appreciated his input to their businesses and the feedback from those clients was great. John is a valuable asset to any business, he can easily figure out business need and direct business owner to growth and success.
Doug was a joy to work with, as I pressed the reset button on our business after our main product's market turned commodity. Though we design custom embedded systems and are challenged to explain what we do (other than "we specialize in the weird") Doug came up to speed on our markets and talents and capabilities very quickly. He provided valuable guidance both on the process of evaluating business/product ideas (from a selection of over a dozen) to specific recommendations on some of the details of implementing the "go forward plan". He is extremely bright, yet easy to work with, and communications were crystal clear at all times. We will continue to employ the benefits of his grey-matter in the future.
