Testimonials

Our work with Ray, over an approximate 4 month period focused primarily on streamlining our systems and processes, my personal time management, ensuring we had the appropriate employees performing the work that I didn’t want to do, and then the recording of key result areas.

I have to say that having Ray consult to us resulted in a more streamlined business with processes in place that has made it possible to hire office staff and what’s all the more pleasing (given that Ray is no longer consulting to us) is that I am now working less hours per day, overseeing the operations, with the business continuing to do exceptionally well. Additionally when I am ready for the next phase to grow the business to the next level I will be getting Ray back to assist me with this.

Ray’s help has been invaluable...

We have worked with Ray Hodge these past eight months. Our business had grown to a point where we really needed assistance with the systems and related people who interacted with the various procedures.

Ray’s help has been invaluable in that we have achieved a more fully process driven business with significant reductions in turnaround time frames, particularly relating to administration, with quoting times reduced by half. Increased role and responsibility clarification of staff and management along with the introduction of a new job management system Ray introduced us to has also helped this to become reality. His ability to spot the key issues has been immensely helpful and are grateful for his assistance.

Ray has worked with myself at HEQ for almost the past 12 months. On the passing of my husband, and being 29 at the time, I felt I could do the job of leading the business but needed the additional support that Ray could offer.

He has helped me grow as a manager and provided the tools that I needed to act on the constant issues that came my way. He was a constant support both by phone and in personal meetings and always there when I needed him.

His involvement at HEQ was varied from the designing and establishing budgets that were easy to understand; help through recruitment, staff dismissals and the restructuring we completed; providing back up for me when I was still learning; working on flows for jobs in/jobs out (fast turnaround time for invoicing) etc. He also helped identify and turn around a division within our company that was initially unprofitable. Ray’s contribution to HEQ has been significant both at a personal and business level and recommend him highly.

The workplace can be a challenging environment; sometimes employee morale gets de-emphasized in service of increased productivity and profits.

However the reverse is actually the secret; get employee morale right, increase retention, and your productivity and profits have no choice but to increase (often significantly!). Ray Hodge is a master at supporting leaders with crafting powerful strategies to do just that; he’s a trusted navigator and advisor to senior leadership in this context — and there’s a reason. His approaches are tried and true, and they work; his results over his many years in this practice speak for themselves.”

Kelli Richards - President & CEO, The All Access Group, LLC. USA

Being time poor our company relied on what subtle advertising we had in place to attract our trade.

Ray kept us on track to proactively seek new ways to reach our clientele. He made us accountable for our current down fall in customer enquiries and made us take charge on increasing our customer traffic again.

Over the past decade, I’ve worked with hundreds of respectable professionals in a few countries as part of my career of building multi-million dollar businesses. I’m very grateful to have met Ray several years ago when things in my life were (so I believed) in control. In the past 12 months, I’ve come to learn that I was never in as much control of my life as I had believed having experienced some extremely testing times.

Ray has, on several particularly unexpected occasions, demonstrated a depth of character that has been both inspirational and encouraging during many of these times. From encouraging me to finally learn how to dance after 20 years of procrastination to being a solid sounding board through my marital separation, Ray has been a huge support.

Ray does not sugar coat situations nor does he make condemning judgements. He understands it’s about truly helping others on the level they are at right now in their personal journey in work and in life. He is refreshingly comfortable with his own journey and that is a strength that many people could learn from – I certainly did.

I count Ray as a real friend and I consider it a true blessing that I am able to continue to develop professional opportunities with Ray. He continues to have a spirit of innovation both personally and professionally. I look forward to seeing Ray’s impact on others as he helps them by sharing the wisdom he has accumulated through the insights of trials and adventures both personally and those learnt from helping others.”

With Ray’s advice and guidance, we were able to regain control of our internal procedures but most of all, our precious time.

By putting simple ideas in place, we saved hours each week. The company was at a point of desperation but within 2 short weeks of having Ray on board, things changed dramatically.

You’re my angel Ray Hodge...

You have been the only one of very few who has been there to support me, without judgment. Because of your friendship I’ve been able to be totally honest with you about my struggles, giving me the strength I need to keep pushing forward.
