Kings Stationers, Hastings

Paper is paper, clips are clips, Rogers degree of personal service is mazing, you want it, he got it!

Stunning visual interpretation of intellectually challenging external stimuli.

Didn't like the octopus's glasses much ;-) A brilliant show, talented man!

Brilliant expose on the dark arts of latex manoeuvres - Fabulous!

Elaine - Building Confidence, Improving Performance, Hastings

I recently completed a programme of consultations with Elaine, my initial curiosity at the start of the process gave way to a realisation that Elaine fulfils a much needed function - I can well understand that Small Business Owners, who often have 'nowhere to go' to be honest about their internal concerns would benefit hugely from Elaine's consultative programme. She is empathetic, knowledgeable and above all, she listens. The inevitable upshot will be an increased understanding of who you are in your working context, and an understanding of what you should consider practising regularly as part of your desire to change and improve. She will put your concerns into perspective and remove those clouds of uncertainty - it is said we all need a Mentor. Perhaps that's true, but we are all different with different abilities and different reflective skills. None of us have all the answers, Elaine will help you find those answers to questions you may not feel especially free to acknowledge to yourself. We can all do with 'a lift' on occasion, Elaine will do the heavy lifting!

MVL Wills & Trusts Ltd, Hastings

When dealing with the often tricky subject of legacies, wills, and other instruments designed to preserve your hard won assets in the event of your timely or otherwise demise, you really need to feel that the organisation and the person you're dealing with has listened to your best interests and wishes. Andrew exudes the kind of solidity and assurance that you really need when arranging your will - the often fractured nature of extended families can mean that forensic detail is absolutely necessary to ensure your assets and wishes are both honoured and fulfilled when your 'time is up'. Financial services in general have had a bad press for some time, often with justification, but MVL, and in particular Andrew Mathias, will give you the confidence that you're dealing with an organisation run by family people for family people. He is knowledgable, considerate and knows his subject. You can have every confidence that you're not just 'being processed' for a fee. Highly recommended.

Elaine - Building Confidence, Improving Performance, Hastings

Elaine is the consummate listener - if your life is full of unanswered questions and uncertainties, she'll help you find a way through your concerns in a quiet and considered manner, instantly putting you, the individual, at ease in her consulting room. The 'patient confidence' factor here is important, you'll be able to discuss your situation in the knowledge that the conversation remains within her four walls, yet she operates outside the more formal medical constraints one normally finds in consultative arrangements that make one think 'all this is going on the record somewhere'. I wholeheartedly recommend anyone who has unsolved uncertainties in their life, and who would like real answers to those concerns, to consult Elaine, you'll be pleased you did.

Jason Cornes Business Mentor & Life Coach, Hastings

I've run Corporate divisions historically, and have run my own business since 1995 - before the ubiquitous world wide web and even e mail - the rules of engagement have changed, and change we must reflect as individuals. As Ghandi once reflected, 'You must be the change you want to see' or something apposite like that. Our problem, in such a competitive world, is just how can we analyse, accept and handle the changing ways of doing business and yet retain the real reason why we went into business in the first place - we had the idea, the passion, the foresight, the skill and the overall desire. All this crowds our sensibilities, where do we go for advice and clarity? Jason will be frank, honest and perspective in analysing what you do, how you do it and more importantly, what you need to do to properly focus on what you want to achieve. Too many of us 'enthusiasts' confuse activity with accomplishment - Jason will provide that clarity to prioritise what you need to do, when you need to do it and hold you to it. Just spending money with a 'coach' is missing the point, Jason will ensure you participate, it's your future after all, this guy is credible, he's been there - to be recommended folks - have a conversation with him, he speaks with one tongue.

thebestof Hastings, Hastings

I have little natural empathy with the administration of Social Media in general, but I do recognise the necessity of having a connection and back up to one's web presence - and Cale does a great job of doing what I really don't have the time or the inclination to do myself. The link to my website with the Bestof Hastings site gives prospective customers the ability to immediately check what those customers who've reviewed my business say about what I do and how I do it. That's the mechanics, fine, but what goes into providing relevant and necessary material is imperative, and Cale is on the button here. He understands the locality, so if you want to be 'current' in bringing your commercial operation to the attention of the modern consumer in this area, you really need to be having a serious conversation with the Bestof Hastings. Cale pays attention to detail, is thorough and committed to doing his best for what you need to be doing. Wholeheartedly recommend the ' Bestof'.

Danny The Idiot, Hastings

Utterly Professional. Exacting quality skill from Danny - Superb!!

Bannatyne Hotel and Spa Hastings, Hastings

I attended a networking event here for the second time - this occasion was a more relaxed and intimate affair. The catering provided was first class, a quality afternoon tea which, all too often at this type of venue, is a predictable standard and unexciting offer. Not a bit of it, the staff were friendly without being obsequious, the food fresh and tasty and relished by those attending the event. The atmosphere was overwhelmingly positive, the impression given here is that the management really do care about their customers and take nothing for granted. If you think you're visiting another 'chain' hotel that really couldn't care less whether you're there or not - not here, they really do want your patronage and yes, they earn it. Well done folks, keep it up, you set a high standard!

Danny is a consummate artist - pure quality & innovative.

Kings Stationers, Hastings

Sometimes the mundane and downright boring gear you need to fulfill the function of the modern office just isn't there anymore! Agh!! And then what do you do? Simple really. Roger will deliver anything pretty quickly within his territory and he doesn't charge for doing so -a unique selling point these days. He knows we don't get very excited about paper, be it flat or on rolls, but he knows we have to have the materials, and responds accordingly. You get what you pay for, and his pricing is fair. More to the point, you can reduce inventories of this stuff and let him carry it for you - in short order he'll deliver and even manage to smile about it! For anyone determined to save pennies by buying from the usual big criminals - you're almost certainly saving nothing or thereabouts. Give Roger a try. Support local business and see what he can do for you. We get our stationery from him and now it's something we don't have to worry about. Now we really don't care!!

Kings Stationers, Hastings

What I really ‘get’ about Roger’s company is the similarity of approach in what I do with mine - Customer Service in the genuine old fashioned sense. No survey confirmations required, you order, he delivers. Isn’t that the deal? His pricing is fair, his big picture means no stupid delivery charges, a big range of gear available...we all neec this stuff, and Roger does, I know, bother with his sourcing costs in order to ensure we, as customers, get a fair shake and don’t have to spend an age digging around to save a quid. He and Debbie try hard, if you need stationery and all the ‘stuff’ that your outfit needs to function - no point in looking elsewhere, you’re just making life complicated for yourself and your company...

GBS Insurance Services, Hastings

I met Peter at a networking event and he made a lot of sense in considering my professional Insurance requirements. The proposal arrived swiftly, Peter understood precisely what was required and quoted accordingly, the cost was competitive and he made the business of acquiring Insurance painless. I can wholeheartedly recommend him, his company and his prompt efficient service.

SocialBee Social Media , Hastings

I was slightly reluctant to be drawn into the 21st Century with all this Social Media 'stuff' - but I came to realise that times have well and truly changed, and that the ability to change in a changing environment is not only sensible but vitally important. Cale understood where I was coming from and was able to present a package for me that seemed both sensible and affordable. He's passionate about what he does and obviously knowledgable - he's able to do 'things' with Facebook and Instagram that frankly I know I need to do but don't want to do it myself. If you want to subcontract the day to day maintenance of your Social Media presence, look no further. If you want to learn how he'll teach you to do it yourself, although why you'd want to bother is beyond me! This could be a murky world for the uninitiated, Cale makes sense of it and I wholeheartedly recommend you talk to him...

Bay Spice, Hastings

It's quite difficult catering for large groups of diners, but Bay Spice seem to manage it pretty well. The food is excellent, the staff friendly the ambience rather better than the usual Asian decor offering! I'd recommend a visit here

Bay Spice, Hastings

Excellent food last night, great service and a good atmosphere. It constantly surprises me how will these folk deal with a big gathering, but they do, and they do it well. Looking forward to the next gathering in March...

Kings Stationers, Hastings

First rate supplier, delivery to our door too, pricing is fair & they are good folk to deal with. We're glad to be supplied by a local Stationer, rather than the great Marauders....Kings deserve your support.

Bay Spice, Hastings

This was my first visit here, and as part of large group I didn't expect too much; surprisingly, the staff coped with the numbers ( in addition to a 'normal' busy restaurant) very well, the food was tasty and the ambience conducive to a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I'll definitely return, there are many restaurants of this type, but not many that offer the 'real' thing. These folks do, and they deserve your patronage.
