T&S Framing commissioned a business mentor to help them with their building business…
Chris Tregelles – Director of T&S Framing: “We found ourselves, as a business, slightly in the doldrums and a little bit ‘off the ball’. We did not seem to be getting the level of enquiries we would have liked, in the type of work we enjoy and make most money out of – timber framing – and found ourselves taking on more and more mundane general building jobs which really were not ‘floating our boat’.
Our business mentor worked very hard to make us concentrate our energies in the right direction and to carry out the improvements that were so badly needed.
We have had valuable advice on the building of a new and improved website which unashamedly went after the type of business we wanted to attract, the development of an improved logo and vehicle livery, and how to best use the varied talents of our workforce.
Our business mentor listened carefully and took on board everything we had to say. The end result is a change for the better. We have overcome the obstacles which we were in the way of building the type of construction company we wanted to specialise in, and using a business mentor gave us the confidence to make this leap, without discarding certain important key aspects that we as a company felt should stay.
It is three years since we had the intervention of our business mentor, and now the majority of our business now involves timber frame work, our website organically ranks on the first couple of slots on google, and the level of enquiries is constant. In fact there are some days I wish I could switch the thing off!
We cannot recommend our business mentor, Angus Ogilvy-Stuart, highly enough, he is diligent, conscientious and very pleasant to work with. His marketing skills are second to none.”
