Clive and I have worked together for over three years and during that time, he has provided me with invaluable advice, guidance and wisdom which have immeasurably developed my business skills. We have recently spent more time together through the, 'Fast Track, High Growth' Scheme, which is designed to support businesses going through the process of going from a small to a large company. The scheme helps owners prepare both themselves and their businesses for the growth transition. Lumine Development has supported me by bringing clarity, focus and meticulous planning to the ambitions I hold for my company and has helped me build the bridge between my initial vision and where I stand today. Together, we took steps that transformed Equation from small local trader to the UK market with our virtual accountancy concept and E-Franchise product. With his patience, perception and intuitive nature, Clive has enabled me to balance my relentless passion for business with logic, methodology and measurement, thereby allowing me to release my true inner potential and attain a solid, sustainable grounding for my business. The skills Clive has taught me, I will carry with me for the rest of my life. If you are fortunate enough to work with Clive, you should thank your lucky stars. He is one of a kind and I am truly honoured to have had the opportunity to work along side such a talented, gracious and experienced man."

Clive has been an invaluable source of support and expertise for our charity and social enterprise. Clive has been there for us from our very humble beginnings through to supporting us as High Growth Business Adviser when things began to take off. Clive is extremely personable and has a knack of cutting through the rhetoric and understanding what's real, practical and achievable for an organisation. After each meeting I've had with Clive I've been left re-energised, enthused and motivated to follow his advice. If you're looking for a very astute hands-on business advisor then Clive's your man."

I was very fortunate to have met Clive at a time when my business was growing rapidly and it was becoming more important to apply structure to the business. Clive supported my business over a period of 6 months. Clive is a very wise business advisor who consistently presented himself in a professional and friendly manner. He is a very effective listener with a calm persona. Through his direct advice and support Clive helped us achieve a 43% increase in year two sales. He has also helped develop a more robust operational model that allows us to develop/grow our team more effectively. Clive is particularly knowledgeable in the field of people management & selection. I was most impressed by Clive's ability to openly debate novel solutions to get the best results for our business. Solid Contracts continues to do well. We have doubled the revenue since we first spoke to Clive and he can certainly feel free to claim some of the credit for that."
Anthony Sorrell, MD Solid Contracts Ltd
Clive was introduced to my company at the start and his efforts and input to the growth and strategy of the business proved critical during the start up phase and onwards to a thriving business. His input was over and above the day to day and offered critical advise to us in relation to all aspects of the business. I cannot recommend him enough nor thank him enough for the help, advice and comradeship shown during these times."
