    As a result of our GrowthAccelerator journey, we have achieved far greater recognition in terms of our sustainability expertise. I would recommend the service to any company that wants help in a specific area of their business, and a push to drive them on.

    GrowthAccelerator really got under the skin of our business. Their enthusiasm was so reassuring, and having that third party there to mediate and provide external perspective was crucial. The whole service – in particular the Orbit Diagram process, which was pivotal – has been really good for us.

    We'd been doing things our own way for a while, and this process really made us look at the business from a different angle. Our Growth Manager found the perfect mentor for the company, which has helped us no end. What we’ve learned in just a few months has been worth every penny.

    I would certainly recommend GrowthAccelerator to other organisations. If we hadn't gone through this process, we could well be in the same position of many other companies in the construction sector that are no longer here
