Keith Paton Joinery, Cambridge

“Selling your business to someone already in the business has advantages and BSP Advisory played a pivotal role in the whole process including nominating and working with that person to ensure everybody got a fair deal.

I would highly recommend working with a professional for succession planning and BSP are it.”

- Toni and Keth Patton

“Since working with BSP Advisory, we are in a better, more stronger position than we've ever been before.

We've got a great team of people. We've got good, strong leadership, we've got a great culture.

This has allowed us to have freedom in the business knowing we can delegate with complete trust.

I am also very proud that our son has also joined the business.

Succession and Leadership have been key components in our future.”

- Alanna Aarts

Pukekohe Hiab Transport, Pukekohe

listen to how our client Chris is now living his dream

Chris’s story on working with a BSP Advisor

“We were operating under stress and maximum capacity on a daily basis for a long time, focussing primarily on delivering very high quality workmanship but struggled to meet the challenging day to day requirements of our clients due to the heavy workload. We really didn’t have much for anything else in our business.

"NOW, we’ve increased our turnover significantly over the last few years, we have a crystal-clear vision, a solid business plan in place and I’m not working in the business on a daily basis. All of this has been developed through the work with my BSP Advisor, Phil Wicks.”

Chris Morris, Powdercoating NZ

“Answers the hard questions”

Being in business is hard work, finding people that can assist and understand your concerns and needs is invaluable.

Phil Wicks has been a great help and is someone that can answer the hard questions as well as ask them also. Highly recommend working with them.

- Warick Buchanan

“Real pragmatic advice”

Have had fantastic discussions with John Hopkins, who provides real pragmatic advice on how to maximise your business's performance. Getting it to a point where it works for you rather than the other way around.

His own personal experience as a business owner is invaluable in being able to spot weaknesses and make recommendations on how to correct them.

“Listened without judgement”

Helen Laidlaw asked real questions and listened without judgment. She gave informative replies to questions and we had fair discussions. Would love to have her input on a regular basis.
