Wow! What a difference David has made to our social media agency! It was one thing making hundreds of thousands of pounds in sales for our clients, it was another to ensure our own business was equally as successful - and that's what David has helped us achieve.
David has brought in a new perspective to Status Social. Recruitment, financial management, strategic offline marketing ideas... just three of the areas David has been insightful with. Thanks to his help, we've just recorded a 7th successful year of growth in a row which includes, most importantly, a big jump in profits.
Thank you David for being part of the Status Social team.
Mark Saxby - Owner Status Social
David ran a really engaging thought leadership session with my team in Nottingham yesterday. The Growth Health-check focussed us on working "on" the business, rather than "in" the business: understanding our "rocks", and ensuring we are committing enough time/energy to delivering these . Some really thought provoking content. David certainly had us reflecting on how we articulate our key differentiators to potential clients as well as how we resolve issues in our business. The feedback from the team has been great. Loved the ice-breaker too - really made us think about our own vision for the new SME team in Nottingham. David was a great facilitator, and I would certainly recommend him. Thank you David.
Belinda Smith - Area Director, Lloyds Bank
David, is a source of inspiration who has helped us to view our business outside the box. This in turn has naturally allowed and given us permission to work on the business for some of the time rather than in the business which comes so naturally to business owners like Shaun and myself. The help and support of 3W Growth has played a crucial part in moving our growing business onto the next level. We look forward to continuing the relationship.
Helen Cope - Director Trans-sport.tv Ltd
We really enjoyed our executive coaching session last week. As a fast growing business, it was great to take time out to discuss and review our plans. We are looking forward to building on our partnership, you are a great sounding board to help us to refine our goals.
Susie Carlisle - Co-Founder The Lincoln Tea & Coffee Company
David took over as MD in 2011 and led a great business turnaround in tough times. David then put a plan, team and process together which got everyone to collaborate and focus on growth but used very little extra resource.
Our business has more than doubled since then and I would recommend him most highly !
Mazhar Butt - Owner of Butt Foods Ltd
In my previous role as Managing Director of The Food & Drink Forum Limited, I worked closely with David during his tenure as Vice-Chair and Chair of the Board, our working relationship spanned more than ten years.
David is an excellent coach and mentor, one of the things that I have always really valued about David's expertise is his skill in helping to think through problems and to evaluate options.
Running a small business can often feel quite isolated, working with David in his role as Chair and mentor overcame this and meant that I was able to perform my role with greater clarity and foresight.
Fiona Anderson Ex MD The Food and Drink Forum
I have worked with David Williams on many occasions, every time I have learnt something new that I have been able to apply personally.
David taught me about leading a team in a much more coaching style, eliminating any bad micro managing traits before they even started. David helps you to learn and doesn’t tell you how to do things, still to this day I believed he always knew what I should do well before I did, but he taught me how to figure it out myself.
These techniques helped me to remember and shaped the way I managed people from that moment on. I cannot recommend him enough.
Alex Stone - MD at A Stones Throw Marketing
When your Dad has grown a big business from scratch, it feels a huge responsibility to follow in his footsteps. I didn’t have much experience of people management or leadership and 3w Growth really helped me fill the gaps I had. I feel much more confident about my personal style and am happy to ask others to step in and help where I am not so strong and focus on what I am good at.
3w really helped me manage our business growth 50% over 12 months – a real challenge in my first year !”
Dan Butt - MD Butt Foods Ltd
The two meetings we had have been so energising. I really like and appreciate the blended coaching and mentoring approach you use which enabled me to clear a lot of the confusing noise in my head, to refocus and listen and identify what is important for the business.
Each of the sessions were both energising and draining. It is a long time since I felt so positive and enthusiastic about my own business.
Ruth Dolby - Director at Food Science Fusion
The work 3W did for us was very valuable . The individuals involved gained a great deal from David's insight and guidance . I have no hesitation in recommending the services of this company.
