What our clients say

GTI has helped us do more than just share our ideas in snatched moments during busy working days but invest time in bringing them out.
Having someone look at the business with a fresh pair of eyes and bring their experience of working with other companies to our discussions helped us crystallise our thoughts and ambitions. Our coach gave us the confidence and ability to move forward in a way that takes how we operate to the next level while retaining the flexibility and responsiveness that has served us well.

Winners of the Start-up prize in Medilink East Midlands’ Innovation Competition, Co-Formulate has increased turnover by 26% in just 12 months following support from Pera Consulting through Growth Through Innovation.

The service was dynamic and tailored to what I want and how I want to work – quite different to previous experiences of government schemes.
As well as helping us in a variety of tangible ways, it also gave me time for calm reflection about where we want to go and how we could get there, something I don’t normally have time for day to day.
