I have worked with Francis both for my own business and through Hertfordshire Growth Hub. Francis has a thorough understanding of what makes a good business tick- the ability to share this knowledge and help people to achieve their potential- and the enthusiasm and skill to provide the support that clients need.

Couldn’t recommend Francis and the team highly enough. They gained a very quick understanding of my business plan and pushed me in directions I would not have otherwise considered. They also helped get my sales pipeline organised and I am now able to quickly analyse every aspect of my business pipeline for effective planning and resourcing.

We Grow Businesses opened our eyes to many obvious things that you easily miss when you are so close to your business. They allowed us to step back and see the bigger picture. Francis was able to quickly help us identify where we were going wrong and provide quick and easy wins to change things around. Within a short amount of time we starting to see massive improvements and we couldn’t have achieved the revenue increases we saw without We Grow Businesses. This was a very wise business investment and worth every penny!

We’ve had a great first year working with We Grow Businesses Ltd. Cash is really healthy. Turnover is up by 84% year-on-year. And we’ve significantly increased net profit despite taking on more staff. I really value the financial insights they provide, which gives me confidence that hiring a new person is safe to do. If you want to grow your business quickly then I would strongly recommend having a chat with Francis and the team.

We have been working with Francis and the team for just over a year. His advice and insight into the day-to-day running of our business has been invaluable, particularly in the areas of finance, CRM and maintaining our client pipeline. They have offered us extremely useful health checks throughout the year to help us gauge how our business is moving forward. If your business is in need of a gentle nudge forward, I would highly recommend We Grow Businesses.

You have done two pieces of work for us now – one on streamlining processes (which is definitely producing results already!), and a second looking at financing a progression of the business. … I have seen firsthand how good you are with your clients and the level of service you provide, we feel in safe hands with you and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending We Grow Businesses and your services to colleagues, friends and clients.

Francis gave us a really useful 360 degree view of our agency; both what was working well and areas we could improve. He explained everything really clearly and it highlighted where we needed to focus our efforts in order to scale the business. We now work with WGB monthly and it’s really exciting to see our agency have some strategy and structure as we grow.

Francis and I worked on a road mapping exercise to help determine in which direction to take a new business venture. We used an excellent prioritisation matrix tool and worked through this methodically. It helped to consolidate future plans and prioritise various strategies. He was very thorough, patient and his expertise was valued. Thank you Francis.

I recently undertook the Free Business Growth Health Check. I thought I’d made little progress. Francis was able to show me where I was making progress, how much I’d moved forward and where to direct my efforts to improve in other areas too. Well worth taking the time to check in with the team to make sure you’re heading in the right direction!

I attended the first Business Growth Meetup in July that Francis Hooke organised. There were about a dozen people that attended and we were well fed and watered by Francis and his team initially and given a chance to get to know each other before the meeting commenced. There were quite a spread of people and businesses in the room with different experiences of running a small business.

After an initial introduction to the format we were split into twos and given a topic to discuss such as winning work. It was great to share knowledge and experiences in pairs and then, when back in one group to then discuss the ideas/suggestions as a whole.

The evening was more than just a networking event and an opportunity to give and receive ideas to help your business grow. I will be attending further Business Growth Meetups in the future.
