As a two partner practice we saw the need to employ a coach who would be able to keep us both on track and focused on the goals of our practice. Without Tibor there would have been the tendency to simply focus on getting the task at hand completed rather than concentrating on practice growth and improving client size.
We have found that Tibor’s strategies for keeping us focused on our long term goals and holding us accountable for the short-term goals have made a significant difference to our business and meant that we have reached our target sales for this year (2009).
His advice has improved partnership relationship and he has also helped with difficult staff issues. He has offered advice in practice structure and ensured that we recruit staff at the right level with reference to the future goals of our practice.
We would not hesitate to recommend Tibor as a business coach.

“Tibor played a key role in helping us grow the total value of our portfolio substantially over the last 10 years. Along with advising on accounting and tax issues, you helped structure the group: develop our accounting systems and reporting processes; manage receivables, creditors and tenant accounts; build our capital budgeting and cash flow management model; and provide strategic input into our strategic planning process.”

“Due to you Tibor, the term “Business Coach” has become quite fashionable recently. Many people have never been in business and don’t understand the ramifications of being in business. I have found Tibor to be the Real McCoy coach and mentor to us. He has loads of experience in managing businesses and your advice has been, I have found, to be sound practical and sensible. I have no hesitation in recommending Tibor to anyone either starting in business or those already established.”

“In all of our dealings over the last six years, you’ve always been available for advice and support whenever I have asked. As a business associate you’ve always been ethical, honest and straightforward. The term “Business Coach” has been bandied about recently. I have found you to be an excellent coach and mentor to me. You have loads of experience in managing businesses and your advice has been, I found, to be sound, practical and sensible.”

“Having your input on a regular basis has made a massive difference to my focus and productivity. Being able to look at the big picture as opposed to being bogged down in day to day busyness has also helped an awful lot. Your suggestions and external view points have proved very valuable in helping me achieve more in my business
Jessie Foley – Mobile Conveyancer – Fortune Manning Lawyers
“I met with Tibor with no real expectation of what I would achieve out of a consultation with him and was extremely pleased with the results. I came away with some action points that I could start working on immediately and a more comprehensive plan which transpired from our discussions about goal setting and what resources I needed to take my business to the next level. I would highly recommend Tibor to anyone who wants to look at what is needed for that individual as well as his or her business to succeed in their chosen profession or business.”
Kirsten Hodgson – Kaleidoscope Marketing Ltd
“I asked to meet with Tibor to get his input into how I can juggle my personal life with work and still achieve my business goals. Tibor asked some great questions that got me thinking and that cut through to what’s important to me. His approach is practical, down to earth and clearly shows what you need to do to get to where you want to be. If you are looking for a roadmap for your business and practical support and advice to help you attain your goals (plus the all-important follow up), I recommend you engage Tibor.”
