What our clients say about us

The Quay Zone, Girvan

“Thank you for both the slides and yesterday’s workshop. It has given my fellow board members lots to think about and it has brought home to roost how real this all is!! Let’s hope they start to take it all on board and put it into practice. Over the next few weeks we will be trying to put the finance sub-group together. Once we have managed to do this Peter or myself will be in touch to try and sort a date for the next workshop.”

– Andrew Sinclair, South Carrick Community Leisure and Peter Linton South Ayrshire Council. June 2015

“The services that Colin provided were second to none.  He provided advice and assistance in such a way that was simple to understand and educational.  He gave us a clear picture of exactly where the company is financially and what we hope to achieve and gave us lots of advice on how to get there.”

– Lorraine Smart

Larkhall & District Volunteer Group

“I initially contacted Just Enterprise with an idea we had to run a small, community car project for our local community.  We had a fair idea there was a need for this project but were unsure how to prove it.  Just Enterprise allocated Colin as our consultant and after an initial meeting with us, he undertook a feasibility study which changed the course of our plans.  Based on the work completed by Colin, we were provided with detailed information proving beyond doubt that there was a need for this service, not only locally but in the wider area.  Colin made sure we got to speak to the right people and based on these meetings we are now linked in with our local GP surgeries and the Head of Planning for the NHS.  Colin linked us with another, very successful community car project that has assisted us in the structure of our project.  Our meetings with the NHS have resulted in our involvement in further discussions exploring the bigger picture of how Community Transport Operators fit into the wider transport needs of the NHS.  Our community car project is due to start within the next few weeks as the small pilot we initially spoke of, but with future possibilities that we never dreamed of.”

“Just wanted to get in touch to say thank you for all of your support and guidance whilst we drafted and submitted our claim for the ERC/ERDF Business Company Growth Grant.  Your practical assistance as well as general advice really helped us and gave us the confidence to apply for the grant which has helped our business move forward to the next stage.

Thanks again for all your efforts and we look forward to speaking to you again in the future when we will no doubt need more advice!”

– Julie McDaid


“Just a wee message to say thank you very much for all your help with my application for the grant – I was awarded the grant so many thanks again”

“…[we were looking] to reduce our accounting costs and receive a faster service. Colin delivered reduced costs and a prompt service… It is now easy to keep accounts up to date.”

“Can I just say a big thank you from all of us at Clyde Leather. I thought the day yesterday was extremely informative and really put it into perspective the challenge ahead of us.

Thank you again to both you and Alastair for a very interesting day”

– Richard A Harris


I’ve just completed the second session with Alan and it has been extremely beneficial and thought-provoking.  Alan has been exceptionally professional, knowledgeable and well prepared which has enabled me to reflect on where my business is currently, where we can go and how we can get there.  It has provided me with a lot of confidence and clarity in what we are doing and why which can only be beneficial to the future of my business and the benefit it can bring to my stakeholders and local community. We had our session with Alan (Clarke) and we were very impressed with him. We had a fantastic day and did a full communication session. Without a doubt, it has vastly changed what we were going to send out to customers to launch the business. Great support from Business Gateway.”
