Allkind Joinery and Glass is an established and progressive prestige timber joinery based in Brisbane. I have found the years working with Kestrel Solutions very pleasing and a significant contribution to the success of our business. Having Kestrel Solutions by my side gives me extra motivation to soldier on and come up with new plans and strategies to improve our business. In terms of mentoring, it is great to have someone to talk with and keep us accountable for progress. Without Peter Lucas’ involvement, we might have made critical decisions that were not justified or well thought through. The tools from Mindshop are very useful and have not only improved my decision making and business thinking but I have also taken them back into the business and use them with my teams to improve their abilities and outcomes. The Kestrel achievers forum is a great source of sharing and identifying some new ideas with other business leaders especially when discussing how others have implemented performance and profitability improvement into their business.
Peter Lucas from Kestrel Solutions recently provided consulting services to help us address some challenges in our business. Over the years I’ve worked with many business consultants- both alongside them as a marketing consultant and as a client receiving the benefit of their services. We wanted to find a solution to some issues that were limiting our profitability and growth. Peter clearly understood our business and the challenges we were faced with. Sometimes as a business owners we can get bogged down in the detail which makes it difficult to look at the big picture or consider different solutions. Peter helped me look at the issues from a different perspective. His recommendations focused on the biggest priorities and were very practical. He is a good listener and a very generous hearted person. At all times, it felt he was genuinely interested in helping to improve my business. If you are looking to grow your business and work through some challenges, I would thoroughly recommend Peter. I have started implementing Peter’s recommendations and I look forward to working with him again as I am confident Peter can help me to continue to evolve and grow a more profitable business. Thank you Peter!
Due to a major account discrepancy, we found we owed the Australian Tax Office over $400K. Kestrel Solutions negotiated a repayment program with the ATO and developed the turnaround plan to help us trade out of the difficulties. They continued to support us after the assignment and remain a ready source of advice. I have no hesitation recommending Kestrel. They care about their clients, give down-to-earth advice and go the extra mile.
