We engaged Ray Hodge to assist with growing our business and attaining ISO accreditation.

During a period of significant Company restructure, Ray provided valuable support, researching suitable digital platforms and assisting our younger managers by providing effective strategies to improve efficiency and confidence. There is no doubt Ray’s input has had a positive impact on our business and the individuals he mentored.

Ray made a huge impact in South Coast Constructions

...my ROI closed out within months. With another set of eyes over my business I've found him to be a really good investment. His work with my people, streamlining our systems and improving our sales ratios and qualification process was significant.

Ray's consultancy with myself and my team has been extremely valuable across the entire business.

The main results include a stronger leadership team, greater staff satisfaction and efficiencies, record sales over the Christmas season and more time for myself to work on the business. I highly recommend Ray’s services.

It's an absolute pleasure to work with Ray

He took the time to understand me, my business and my staff using exceptional listening skills with an intuitive, professional and supportive approach. His background and knowledge of business structures were very helpful, together with his guidance along the way with practical solutions tailored to me and my business - and the results speak for themselves! Thanks, Ray for being an exceptional coach and mentor!

Ray's coaching me in my organisational and time management skills has got me through these challenging COVID times...

This has included more effective delegation, better task prioritisation, and being able to manage in a more controlled fashion.

I have worked with Ray this past year and his coaching has had a significant effect on our business operations, my management effectiveness and on my personal life. Invoicing arrears are now up to date, debtors have been reduced by over 50% and we are now aligning the team for the future. This and more have been accomplished through Ray's guidance and direction despite him having never been onsite due to COVID.

Having worked with Ray on numerous simPRO customer sites he always seems to be able to find and drive the efficiency gains our customers are look for.

He Identifies any bottlenecks in their processes and realigning their workflows with simPRO and the correct personnel within the organisation to carry out the tasks to create a very efficient end to end process.

Ray, I cannot thank you enough; the amazing impact you have made on my career is unbelievable.

When we started working with you I was not in a position where I was able to utilise my skills. Your sixth sense of where I would be better suited was spot on. You took me from HR and OH&S role to a sales role selling a product I knew nothing about. Your ability to coach me through my fears and boundaries was smooth, professional and engaging. Your high level of inspiration, motivation and support gave me the kickstart I needed. In 3 months I hit the company's average yearly quota, in 12 months, I more than doubled it.

The confidence and opportunities this has bought about I could never have imagined.

Being named in the 'Top 100 Women in Construction in the world,' Guest Speaking Engagements, mentoring and consulting. My proudest moment, being chosen to represent Australian Indigenous Women at the 2022 UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York with an amazing line-up of Trailblazers.

Ray you saw in me the traits of a leader; your experience and knowledge in your field gave you the insight to take me from back of house to the front. Your encouragement and engagement have elevated my career to a level I hadn't imagined. I now have confidence and a platform to inspire, empower and mentor others.

As a company working within the energy sector in a high growth environment, we felt we needed some objective assistance to ensure that we were heading in the right direction.

We felt it best to do this now rather than find we had to repair things down the track. Ray has been enlisted by HEQ to help continue our growth in a sustainable and structured way. Doing this, we are more readily able to take on more work through having the right people in the right places with the corresponding structures and plans in place for the future.

Ray’s work in identifying the strengths and weaknesses, in both the processes/ procedures and also through the interviews he has conducted with key staff and management has been pleasing to say the least. Collating and regularly reviewing the numbers and performance for the different divisions has also been invaluable. We continue to see progressive and positive change as he continues his work with us.

Greg Goodmanson - General Manager, HEQ. Dalby QLD.

In the last few months of working with Ray we have seen significant results within our business in terms of streamlining our processes and workflow along with the effectiveness of having redefined the supervisory roles.

This also involved ensuring that our current job management system was being fully utilised that we are still in process with. Once the initial stage was completed we then added a marketing focus to our improvement endeavours. From this we have seen our an estimated 65% increase in work over the last 4 months with one client returning to us representing approximately 50% of our current revenues. Given the increase of work we are now having to plan the next stage of growth.

Ray’s focus on ensuring that the internal efficiencies (workflows and our staff) along with the external focus of getting our company onto the front edge of marketing and growth has been a great approach. I have regained enthusiasm for my business, my mind has sharpened with the broadening of the scope of other potential work and opportunities and am much more optimistic about the future.
