Thank you very much indeed for your significant help and support - as a result of your guidance I felt incredibly confident in submitting my business plan and then giving my presentation and interview. In the days after the presentation and interview I had some very positive feedback from the partners who interviewed me, saying that my performance was "outstanding" and that my presentation was "very slick and professional" - I doubt it would have been without your advice and guidance. I gained so much confidence from working with you and I am extremely grateful.

Before I started working with Heather I was well-respected and seen as a 'safe pair of hands' but struggling to build my practice. Heather's input and guidance was instrumental in helping me grow my profile both internally and externally, and maximise the opportunities to sell myself in my business case for partner. As a result of working with Heather I made partner 18 months later and have almost doubled my client portfolio.
