'We have been working with Lucy for the last 12 months whilst in production and launch of our ground-breaking Blood Flow Restriction training T-shirt and range of home fitness equipment. Due to a sharp increase in sales, we have recently collaborated with Lucy on a 6 month project to scale up our operation and harness profitability on our steep growth curve. We have secured a retail deal with a global membership wholesale chain for which the delivery of our product is paramount to the future success of our company for which Lucy’s experience and project management skills are invaluable.'

'I’ve been working with Lucy for several years, both as a client of mine and more recently in the capacity of Operations & Strategy Consultant for my IT Support business based in South Wales. I brought Lucy into my business with three key aims; maximise profit margins, create an online presence, and to protect client retention/recurring income. To date, Lucy has not only harnessed my substantial client base, but improved their experience and successfully assisted in increasing the value chain we offer, therefore increasing the profitability without increasing overheads. Over the coming months we have agreed a substantial marketing spend to facilitate the advertising and marketing strategy Lucy has constructed, for which we are excited to see the results from. I would highly recommend working with Lucy to find solutions to challenges being experienced in your business, she is a dynamic thinker and is an incredibly positive influence on our business.'
