It was very useful to identify the parts of the business that tend to get missed … Expert Impact Mentoring is sort of like having a critical friend. It’s given me new ideas to take my entrepreneurial actions forward.

My session with Alex was great, it gave me a completely different perspective to how I should be thinking about scaling my business. It motivated me hugely after a low motivation period of being too involved on the day to day of CONCAT.
