Success Stories

“Mark Johnston was a great support in helping us look at the intricacies of setting up a business in a non-traditional sector.  I consider our work to be specialist crafting and skill-building and Mark was able to guide us in the right direction to help launch on a firm footing.  It has supported a seamless growth strategy to move into retail and workshops in quite a short space of time.”
