Large SME in Niche industry sector with International reputation


Hi Bernard,


I would like to put on record my appreciation of your excellent work in assisting us to reach an understanding of our financial needs and its realisation. Throughout the period of our relationship
you have always been proactive, courteous, supportive and informative.


As a result of your support through Growth Accelerator we now have a company with much more
rigour in our financial management, a part time FD, a full time Financial Controller and a
significant loan from our Bank to fund future planned growth.


I hope that we are able to keep in touch in the future as you are always welcome at OTL.


Many thanks

Kind regards

Bernard Goodchild worked with us as our Growth Accelerator coach to guide the Directors through a period of rapid growth and intense pressure. After Growth Accelerator we retained Bernard to guide
us and sanity check our activities and plans on a monthly basis. His objectivity, experience and wise counsel combines with a gentle yet robust personal style to challenge, steer and enable us to safely

negotiate our niche business arena with far more confidence and continuing successful growth.
Thank you Bernard!

Dear Bernard


Thank you so much for your guidance, understanding and support. It has been greatly valued and
has facilitated my growth and that of the business.


I have really enjoyed our sessions together and found you’re calm and relaxed approach a
refreshing change to the often 'bullish' approach one meets in business.


I feel sure I will be calling upon your services at some point in the future and will look forward to updating you on the business at that point.


With Kindest Regards

Bernard is a pleasure to know; he continues to make time for everything, is hard working, genuine and is a tremendous colleague to all of us in the organisation and running of The Banbury Innovation Award, for 7 years to 2012.

formerly Manager of the Colin Sanders Innovation Centre, Banbury Ltd


Bernard was able to offer sound business advice and support to me when I won the Banbury Innovation Award. This he did free of charge and with his own particular zeal and energy. As I understand it Bernard is an important part of the Banbury Innovation Award administrative team.

Many thanks Bernard.

Response from a client to BG’s work as a Volunteer Business Adviser for Oxford

Business Enterprises. Meeting March 2015


Good Afternoon Bernard,


It was lovely to meet you the other day and I would like to say a warm thank you for all your help and advice - the meeting was extremely beneficial and has given me a good spring-board to progress with my venture, and more confidence when going into future business meetings.


I believe the notes you attached are an accurate summary of our discussion and will be useful for
me to refer back to as I make my next action plan.


It is such a shame I will no longer be local to take advantage of the retail space in town, but like you, am sure there will be ample opportunity in Leicester!


Thank you also for the offer of continuing to communicate should I need to.


All the best,
