I’ve started sub-contracting out all the work I don’t like doing as per your advice, which is freeing me up for more family time, to work on and promoting the things I do enjoy and more time to develop other services.

Belinda Abbott - Ruby Rabbit Office Assist

Our work with Ray Hodge has been extremely beneficial over the last 12 months or so.

A few of the key results have been:

  • the level of professionalism across the company has increased significantly in areas such as our operations and also the broader presentation
  • we completed a re-brand that is now reflected in a new website, uniforms, vehicle badging etc – our decision making is a lot clearer
  • we understand where the company is in terms of key numbers
  • invoicing time frames have decreased from 30+ days to within the week
  • confidence to work with bigger companies and on bigger jobs

One of the other benefits has been to have a sounding board that we can call at any time and Ray’s insight into the industry, understanding of numbers and the continued accountability has made a significant difference to our business.

Tim and Tamara Pitt - Pitts Plumbing Service

We worked with Ray 2 years ago now and the changes that he suggested and implemented are still in place today.

We are still going from strength to strength as a result of some of the systems and procedures that Ray instigated which ultimately impacted on our and team members behaviour

Ray coached me as a finance broker and has helped me make the transition to being a ‘business owner.’

Ray has always encouraged continual self-development to achieve abundance in life; he encourages people to take accountability for themselves and their finances. He has a great knowledge of finance, investment structures, wealth creation, cashflow management, and business practices. He uses this knowledge along with his friendly persona to reach the core issues and to guide change in people and in business. Ray is a true professional who can be trusted, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Ray’s services to anyone who has a desire to make significant steps forward with their life, business

Jayde Johnston - Maxium Finance

From a business perspective, Ray has always been acutely aware of the critical aspects of making a business work, and further doing whatever it takes to make it work.

I have known Ray in both a personal and business capacity for over 5 years now. He continually questions his own business practices to ensure no stone is left unturned with respect to improving his business results and his client’s experience.

As long as I have known Ray he has had a passion for helping others achieve their financial goals. His mortgage broking business was a great example of this. Ray carved his own niche with in this space and built a nearly 100% referral based business through client care, consistently providing above and beyond client expectations and having a strong understanding of his products and how they best suited his clients. This is just one example, his other ventures into property development and his current business further quantify his drive and expertise in relation to owning and running successful businesses.”

David Handley - Oakland Investments

… everyone whom I have referred to your business has been 100% satisfied. More importantly from my point of view you offer a broad knowledge and experience, which gives you far more credibility and knowledge than most others.

Peter McDuff - McDuff Accountants

I have worked with Ray for the last 12 months to review the business processes and then monitor on a monthly basis.

Ray’s ability to look at a micro level and then shift to a “helicopter” view is exceptional and been invaluable to me as a business owner. He is generous with his time and experience which regardless of whether you are small or large enterprise Ignite Business Consulting is an absolute necessity.

Joanne Brooks - Talent 2

Ray has worked with us for the past six months and apart from some significant shifts in our business, a recent consulting proposal we submitted to a client resulted in a 70% revenue increase.

Ray has demonstrated that by providing options with increased levels of value, we could get paid accordingly.

David Cowling - Accountant/Consultant

Working with Ray has been beneficial in helping us to effectively look at our business costs and analyse them so that we were able to break it down and really discard our inefficiencies.

This has given us the confidence in our own budgeting and structure, that if we wish to expand further, we will do this with confidence; that our costs will be kept to a minimum and we will be using the most cost effective ways to expand but still minimise our overheads

Annette Edwards - Red Soil Constructions, Toowoomba

Ray has been an excellent guide and mentor over the past couple of years.

His insights into certain aspects of our business have given us a clear direction and focus for the future. Every business owner needs a hand on their shoulder to keep them on the right path. For a large number of businesses out there – that hand should be attached to Ray
