"When I first started working with Bev, my new business idea was in its very early planning stage. Our meetings gave me accountability, each time we met we made a detailed action plan and it made sure that I did the work before our next catch up. My business soon started to make progress”
“I am really grateful for the mentoring I received, it was so beneficial and set me on my way”
Reply from Awaken Business Club: Thanks Julie, it has indeed been great watching your business grow from the early days. I look forward to catching up with you early 2018.
Bev has been my Business Mentor for the last 3-4 years and yet has been so much more! We have developed a close working relationship, which means that I can ask her opinion on any aspect of my business. She has coached me through writing and publishing a book(which twice reached no 1 on Amazon), taking on and dealing with staff issues, winning an award and developing and growing my business beyond my dreams! I am just planning a teaching tour of Canada for next year and have been asked to speak at an International Conference in Adelaide, Australia. I now regularly speak at international conferences and am proud to say that I have had her support!

Beverley is a talented and intuitive business mentor. She has extensive experience in business that she is able to use to provide guidance and support, and has the remarkable ability of being able to focus discussions swiftly and efficiently to get to the heart of the most important issues. Helping others to succeed is not just a job for Bev, it is a vocation - and she is absolutely great at it! As a mentor you get the sense that she is alongside you, through thick and thin. As a coach, she knows what to ask and when to ask it, helping her clients to build the skills and confidence to achieve their goals in business. Through the Awaken Business Club you therefore benefit from both support and challenge - key elements of learning and improving.
Reply from Awaken Business Club: Thank you Miranda for your kind words. It has been a pleasure working with you as both mentee and mentor.
I'm really enjoying the Awaken Business Club. I have been reminded of important areas I need to address in my business and inspired by new thinking and lateral ideas. Bev is collaborative, supportive and creative. She has a unique way of expressing complex ideas in a simple and easily actionable fashion. The group is supportive too and ideas and solutions are shared willingly. Awaken gives me some breathing space to explore my business aims and strategy - I would highly recommend it.
Reply from Awaken Business Club: HI Carole, Thank you for your feedback. I am so pleased that you are finding the Awaken Business Club supportive, I look forward to watching your business growth.
Bev has been a great support from the moment we met two years ago, she has provided me with an opportunity to test ideas, develop the business and explore business opportunities. It was great to have someone in the same industry, being further along in her business journey, she has offered guidance on pitfalls and successes in the coaching industry. To meet with someone regularly who understands the challenges in coaching has been beneficial, but it’s Bev’s support and attitude towards my success that has been the most useful in my business development.
It was a great match and for that I thank Business Wales for listening and understanding my needs and Bev for being Bev
