What our clients say

The coaching and mentoring I’ve had has helped me rebuild my management team and grow the company to the next level with four of five other arms to the business. All that adds up to keeping people through the ups and down, giving them secure jobs for the future and bringing different skills to the community.

We’re now preparing to push it out into the big wide world and getting more help from Pera Consulting with marketing and development”
