“I engaged in Tristan back in June in the hype of COVID Pandemic. Within the first phone call, Tristan has reframed my thinking around a particular problem I was having with a proposal, and essentially, what happened as an outcome was, I was able to triple my rate and build my confidence that I was worth that amount of money for what I was proposing. Without Tristan, I probably wouldn’t have made that decision. He delivered on his return on investment within one phone call. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough..”
Valentina Borbone – CEO, Banter Group
“We’ve been working with Tristan for over 12 months now and during that time, he’s helped us deploy a fairly aggressive growth strategy, we’ve seen an increase in revenue, we’ve accessed new markets, we’ve employed new staff. Tristan has been a great help to me as the GM, he’s also been a mentor to our director, he sits on our monthly board and he’s also a mentor to our sales and marketing staff. Tristan has been critical to our business and I can’t recommend him highly enough.”
David Bartlett – General Manager, The LOTE Agency
“Just when Tristan and I started, that was when COVID hit and my initial thought was, I cannot spend this money now and then I thought through, actually, now is the best time to spend this money because this is when I needed help the most. Having those weekly calls helped a lot for accountability. It helped give me focus on what I needed to do. Tristan’s approach is very methodical, he’s got a clear step by step to work you through and that was super helpful to get clear by the vision and direction of what I wanted to do. Where I am at now, a lot of it is due to the advances that I’ve got in those stages with Tristan.”
Adrian Stewart – Co-founder, Scale Messaging
“So vision wise tick, practical skills tick, constant support tick, regular challenge also tick and that’s effectively what you need if you’re gonna take on any form of professional support and this man has it so if you’re considering and doing it at all engaging with him in any way I could not recommend him any stronger and so reach out to him for a conversation you won’t regret it.”
Rhys Badkin – Owner, Get a Quick Word
“With Tristan running businesses before, he understood what I was going through and could identify my pain points quickly and get me back on track. It has been great to have someone inside of my business to help me pull apart what I was doing, question its efficiency and suggest other alternatives. After working with Tristan I have more clarity in the business direction and less stress. Thank you Tristan for your guidance.”
Luke Assigal – Owner, Parley Property Advisory
“Having worked with the Evolve to Grow team for some time, I’ve seen a great uplift in interest from potential clients, a stronger sales process and pipeline and increased sales. Tristan’s advice has been advantageous and is enabling me to grow my business with renewed confidence.”
Luke Buesnel – Story League
A Vision is more than just writing out a goal statement at some offsite workshop, it is a mental picture, a statement of intent, on the future that you desire for your business. Your vision is the clear and workable embodiment of hopes and dreams, of what we see your business becoming at some point in the future. Our first job is to get some clarity.
Creating a robust business plan and formulating a strategy for achieving your business goals goes way beyond transferring all of those thoughts circulating in your brain onto the printed page. This phase is all about precision. Researching and collating market data is a tried and tested way of minimising guesswork in decision-making and supports intelligent, calculated risk management.
Your strategy is the blueprint that you’ll follow, from an annual to quarterly perspective, that specifies exactly how to achieve your ultimate objective. Here, you’ll focus your goals, build a strategic plan, establish a strategy rhythm, determine how to measure and report, then link performance to strategy.
Evolve to Grow recognise that successful strategy implementation can often be the most rigorous and demanding step in the methodology we teach. It requires regular input and makes demands on your key business resources; people, finances, logistics, control systems, business structure, and even your culture.
Evaluating the results of your strategy is the best way to maintain efficiency as you work toward your ultimate objective. This step helps you put processes in place for measuring the internal things you can control, but also helps you react to changes in your business environment.
