"Alasdar has a unique Mentoring approach when dealing with business problems. You always feel he's on your side and understands the real issues and what new skills are needed for the business to do this on it's own. He's been great at getting us to step back and see the bigger picture. He does this by a combination of listening and asking the right questions. He helped our business decide on it's top priorities and stay focused on them to increase our top line sales performance. Working with Alasdar we have accomplished things that otherwise may never have been achieved. It's not that we are working harder, just smarter. We strongly recommend him."
