Over the past year Steve Wood, from Roaring Success, has been instrumental in helping me take my precast concrete manufacturing facility to the next level.
Steve’s ability to actively listen and ask insightful questions has helped me to better understand the core issues that I brought to the table. He possesses a unique toolbox, acquired through his vast experience working in different roles and assisting entrepreneurs, which he uses to provide practical and effective solutions to the various challenges I presented.
Through his guidance, Steve has empowered me to apply the tools and strategies provided to my organisation, resulting in significant improvements and successes.
His honesty, transparency, and directness have helped me to confront the reality of my business and make necessary changes to achieve better outcomes.
I strongly recommend Steve for his knowledge, expertise and ability to adapt to different situations.
He has helped me to reach potential solutions that are practical, realistic, and tailored to my specific needs.
I am grateful for the positive outcomes that have resulted from his coaching, and I am confident that others will benefit greatly from his services as well.
Sincerely, Miguel Donnenfeld, Sunset Concrete Pty Ltd, April 2023
“I just wanted to let you know, that it was with great hesitation that I started the Strategic Planning Process. I’ve been through this many times before, I’ve read all the books, I’ve been to all the seminars.
But I just want to let you know that Steve didn’t disappoint.
He is the real deal.
He took us on a very structured journey, he brought everyone along, he was very patient with us because we were just learning how to ride with training wheels.
I am happy to announce that we have the training wheels off.
We are now running with your strategic plan for the next two-and-a-bit years, and it’s actually allowed me to appoint someone to run the business day to day as CEO, which I never would have had the confidence to do before.
And it’s given me my life back.
So, I’ll let you know how things have gone in the next two years, but I just wanted to say Steve’s the man if you need that process and structure around your business to get your life back.
“If your business isn’t the roaring success you’ve dreamt of make it Steve Wood’s business.
Steve Wood from Roaring Success lived our business for 10+ weeks.
His extensive experience and knowledge in the strategic management sphere provided us with invaluable knowledge on ways to increase revenue, maximise profitability, streamline processes as well as critically analysing our marketing plan.
Steve’s guidance provided us with the clarity of direction and confidence to take our business from just making ends to making a profit and as a small business owner, this is indispensable.
The greatest benefit of working with Steve was that he understood our business in a real way.
His methods tested our grey matter but instead of telling us the answers, Steve’s approach encouraged us to scrutinise the status quo.
So, when you are ready to roar about the success of your business, make it Steve’s business.”
“Steve’s workshops are brilliant, action oriented, direct and straight to the point”. Paige Thomas. iGenius3IQ
“This is super helpful. Sales and Marketing is not what you think. You will learn heaps. This workshop really helped me to clarify how to address benefits and not features.” Robyn Grace. Spalding Education Australia.
“Most Valuable? The clear breakdown of content that was outside my comfort zone. Great actionable information. If you struggle with Sales and Marketing this course will be incredibly valuable.” Shayna Grace. Spalding Education Australia.
“Steve Wood has successfully contributed to the board focus in several key areas:
1. Good governance
2. Clear strategy
3. Safety risk assessment
We have a new look board, clearly defined goals and more importantly a sound governance position of both understanding and implementation.
We will be using Steve Wood as a company mentor as he also has a sound knowledge of both the business and the industry we are in.”
“Repeat Plastics Australia has a great history spanning almost 30 years. Founder members now in Directorship roles, have steered the Company from a small enterprise into a medium sized business with a great deal of further potential. Roaring Success were engaged after an exhaustive search of Consultants to help explore that ‘further potential’.
The criterion for the Consulting Companies during the engagement process was broad and diverse, coupled with Directors entrenched within the business who had ‘seen it all before’. Roaring Success were able to challenge the status quo from the very first meeting, asking the pointy questions, which small to medium Business owners seldom ask of themselves.
Steve Wood, as the Director of Roaring Success, was more than qualified to sit with the Board during the development of the Strategic and Marketing Plans, offering support, mentorship and advice, along with having the intellect to know the measure of each as it is required.
The well documented Strategic Plan was instrumental in the Company’s successful bid for funding from Sustainability Victoria, providing joint investment to expedite goals and milestones along our critical path for organic growth. Repeat Plastics Australia have partnered with Roaring Success a third time to help build our Strategic Plan out to 2025.”
“Steve Wood of Roaring Success has been the outstanding consultant in my 57 year of being in business. He put in tremendous effort and enthusiasm and became, in effect, part of my team for the 4 months we were involved together. In a family business the problems are not easily solved and Steve put the time in to understand the culture and encouraged us to find answers.
The answers were not obvious at first and amongst many suggestions was the recommendation of a suitable general manager that had extensive knowledge of good business practice.
The current improved results were started by Steve. I am happy to be rung for more details.”
“We started our journey with Roaring Success in strategic planning workshop.
I found such great value in that program that we engaged Steve and his team to further assist us with our advanced strategic and action planning with our entire leadership group.
The concepts and thinking that we were exposed to during these programs has changed our organisations thinking dramatically and we continue to use the tools and concepts with great success.
It has been really beneficial to us. In 2017 we won the Commerce Ballarat Business of the year award and in May 2018 we were awarded the “CEO award for an Outstanding SME” by Thales at their Annual Partners and Suppliers Awards. I must say I am pretty proud of that!”
“We are very happy to have Steve at Roaring Success helping us with our business plan and strategy. Steve has done great work in helping us to win the LIFT grant from the Victoria Government.
I don’t hesitate in recommending him to any business that needs help to grow their business.”
“Working with Steve Wood and Roaring Success was a breath of fresh air.
He cut through all the marketing hype and gave us a view into a simplified sales model and strategy.
This enabled us to clearly understand why customers dealt with us, how to show our staff what we did that was valued by our clients, how to hold onto and increase the spend of existing clients with these values, where to look for new clients, how to sort new clients into those who shared our values and those who did not. This also made it a lot easier to plan our sales strategy for the next 2-3 years.”
