    Yvonne Hemmings - Automation consultant and strategist for online service providers who want to save hours and £hundreds every week by letting specialist software work its magic in the background so you can run a hassle-free business.

    I recently engaged Adrian for help with a social media campaign for one of my clients. I asked Adrian to put together a campaign that would raise the profile of my client who is in a difficult industry to promote. With #fresheyes he was able to identify what was needed and put together a 15-day campaign that has been used across 2 platforms and continues to be used. Working with Adrian has been straightforward and easy and I would recommend you get in touch with him, he certainly knows his stuff.

  • andy-green

    Andy Green - Expert Web Developer

    Adrian is an invaluable person to know and worth every penny to work with. It is clear how much knowledge and experience Adrian has within minutes of talking to him, and the suggestions he made for my business were incredibly powerful. I'm super impressed at how resourceful Adrian is and it is a breath of fresh air to receive advice that is actionable and relevant to my business, rather than generic business advice. It is also nice to have a conversation with somebody so genuine. You pay for a lot less than you actually get with Adrian, and any one in their right mind should have a conversation with him. Thank you, I look forward to working with you further.

    Ken Marshall, Making Websites Worth Finding - Passionate about helping Lincolnshire businesses avoid preventable website disasters cost effectively

    As a private client I can highly recommend Adrian as someone who does what he says and delivers on his promises. Within a couple of hours working with Adrian he had a concise and focused understanding of my business and its goals. The strategies he then formulated with me have already begun to generate tangible results. But don't take my word for it, he is very approachable, professional and honest, so contact him and have an initial chat. Based on my experience you won't regret it. 

  • Adam

    Adam Davey - Co-Founder and Director at Petaurum Solutions - Your Springboard to Success

    Adrian's #fresheyes tagline really does sum up his approach perfectly. In particular, he has a sharp focus on sales, with the ability to identify clear steps to develop campaigns with effective messaging and high impact. His experience, know-how and knowledge of supporting SMEs is first class, which have resulted in highly constructive and productive conversations each time we've met.

  • Lee

    I have met with Adrian a couple of times now and he has helped me massively with understanding key aspects of growing my business. Areas that I have often felt unclear on and found confusing have been made very clear to me and Adrians approach and methods have left me very clear with what I need to do. I look forward to meeting with Adrian on a regular basis.

  • chris-rose

    Chris Rose- Solver of engineering problems | electronic and electrical specialist | expert services provider for circuit reliability

    Speaking with Adrian, it soon became clear that in order to grow my business, I needed an effective method of generating high quality leads. Adrian's direct, no-nonsense approach really helped to quickly craft a clear, concise message that could be efficiently communicated with my target market. Not only that, we developed a surprisingly simple strategy to help identify and connect with key decision makers. Adrian told me that he is "very good at making work" for his clients, but in all honesty, I think the approach he ended up recommending has the potential to save me countless hours

  • Chris

    Chris Owen - Managing Director At Optimum Safety Management Ltd

    I had my first meeting with Adrian this morning and it was time and money very well spent. Adrian came prepared and we focused on areas of my business which I have not had time to think about and focus on in the past year. It is by far the most productive meeting I have had since i have been running my own business. I can highly recommend Adrian.

  • Bjorn

    Bjorn Bojen - Director At Orisel

    We asked Adrian in to take a detailed look at our business and I have to say, the suggestions in the first hour alone made the fee worthwhile. Adrian takes the time to come prepared, gets you focused on the things that truly matter and tells it to you straight. I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to anyone looking for outside help in growing their business.

  • Julie

  • Will

    Will Bown - Director at SuperFOIL

    We had Adrian in last week to take a look at our sales process and business, in general, to see what & where things could be improved. I only planned to pop in and say hello whilst he spoke to the team and instead spent the best part of 4 hours discussing business. Loved every minute and got some great insights. I highly recommend speaking to Adrian if you get a chance.

  • julian

    Julian Bright, I write WILLS

    I was privileged to have the opportunity to 'attend' a Social Media workshop hosted by FSB and presented and facilitated by Adrian Williams. What a great easy-listening presentation style, that was educational, informative, and engaging. I think I know a reasonable amount about Social Media in lay man's terms [but by no means an expert], simply learnt through experience and a little trial and error. Adrian took my thinking and understanding to a new level. He is very knowledgeable but transmits that information in a highly rational and logical way. Making complex concepts simple and achievable is a gift. Adrian demonstrates that he has that. Great work Mr W.

    I met Adrian on a webinar through FSB where he spoke on Social media networking. His knowledge on the subject was immense and he spoke without using lots of jargon so that all could understand. He helped us to really think about the content of what we put out on social media, the best way to reach people, and even down to the size of the image for each platform. I'd recommend listening to Adrian or connecting with him and he will help you look at your business with #fresheyes!

    I attended a webinar recently run by Adrian Williams. Under difficult circumstances he presented an interesting and inciteful workshop, I came away with lots of ideas and confidence to move forward in an area I am not very knowledgeable in. Adrian offers support even after his Webinars with datasheets and one to one support if needed. I recommend Adrian highly and would attend any webinars he holds in the future.

    Adrian's 5 Pillars workshop was very useful giving both an overview and specific tips on how to optimise your ability to attract new customers through targeting social media. He also gave details on funding and other finance to increase profitability. He was welcoming and had open discussion sections where people could ask about their specific situation. Highly recommended!

    Tony Smith - Director At Genius Technology Solutions

    I recently attended Adrian’s workshop for Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce on the “5 Pillars of Business Growth” – it was engaging, informative, thought provoking, and focussed. Adrian is extremely experienced in business and this shines through in his practical advice, tips, and ideas. The session was informal, and very much a discussion which allowed participants to join in, share their experiences, and explore ideas. Adrian is able to distil so much knowledge that I would without hesitation recommend anyone to take advantage of one of his workshops if ever the chance arises. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Nicky

    Adrian delivered a workshop that I attended about the successful growth of small businesses...what a thoroughly enjoyable day. Adrian imparted some really practical and relevant information about the five pillars of business growth and how to apply these on a day to day business. His 40 years of being in business was evident. His knowledge was delivered in a clear, concise and interesting way which was really engaging. Very approachable and genuinely wants people to succeed. He has earned his title as a guru today. Thank you Adrian

  • Jeannette

    Jeannette Marshall – Owner - Marshall Vere Associates

    Thanks so much for delivering such a great workshop "The Five Pillars of Successful Growth for Small Businesses" on behalf of the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce. I learned lots of new things and (more importantly) came away with 20 actions to implement that will grow and develop my business. (And I've already started working on them!) I highly recommend this workshop!!

  • Steve Norton

    Steve Norton - Corporate Sales Executive @ Renaissance Asset Finance offering direct funding and refinancing of assets £10k-£4m.

    I have met Adrian several times over the last 6 months and have always found him polite and welcoming. Today I had the pleasure of attending a course Adrian was providing on the 5 pillars of growing your business, which finally qualifies me to write a much deserved recommendation. As expected the politeness and the welcome were both there. However I was also extremely impressed by Adrian's abilities and wisdom in using social media and networking to promote not your role but what you can offer to your target network. He allowed time and the expertise within the group to offer support to the candidates. He was also as prepared to share his bad experiences as he was to share what had worked along with his reasons for both. It was delivered at a suitable pace with a good mix of humour and challenging what the candidates already do. Finally he followed up by saying a thank you at the end and subsequently via Linkedin. With Adrian you get the modern ways done with old fashioned values. Thank you.

Thanks for everything Adrian.
