“Barry joined us at the start of the Company and he developed a successful and profitable business for the Company. He recognised how we could grow the business and execute the plan from the outset. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his expertise and services.”
“I contracted Barry to help re-launch and improve the sales of the Jenolite Brand. We had bought the Jenolite brand which had been left in the doldrums for a number of years.
The product needed to be revitalised and a different approach to the distribution and sales of the product was required Barry recognised that there needed to be a story and the product needed a fresh look so that clients would take notice and that the product would sell through.
We allowed him to use his team to tell the story, redesign the packaging, create a couple of videos and dedicated presentations for him to make the right approach to the market. Barry project managed the whole process
He has helped to change the distribution so that each market is covered. This meant that distributers within the Automotive, engineering, DIY, Marine, Aerospace along with an Irish distributer were appointed specialists in each sector.
The business has seen good growth and he continues to work with us to increase sales I have no hesitation in recommending his services.”
“Barry’s immediate appreciation of the effort already contributed internally and how then to model and take forward, together with his understanding of the relevant customer base – existing and potential – made the commitment to having Barry as part of our team completely worthwhile and something we would hope to repeat.
Barry is energetic, honest, creative and quickly settles into a team as a key player ensuring that we received excellent value for our investment in him.”
“I have full confidence in Barry’s abilities as he did his job well here. His persistence created some very important new sales channels for us, for example with Boots and Halfords. Not only did he open up these opportunities through his cold calling and networking, but he also managed the testing and procurement process, which eventually lasted several years.
Barry has a good eye for a new product and also knows where and when it is right to promote it.”
“Barry was very clear and focused with what I should be doing next to develop my business.
The work with one of our clients has progressed even further since Barry`s intervention and they have since gained a number of accreditations, all supported by The Hub.
Barry really helped me focus on setting the right direction and getting the work underway. It might have fallen by the wayside had he not been involved. As it turned out his expertise was spot on. Getting this early market information was really, really important at this early stage of the product’s development.”
