“I began working with Wayne from Workplace Partners 12 months ago. While the income coming into my business was increasing, the expenses were increasing more. I was working harder, losing ground and was feeling trapped by my business. Since working with Wayne we’ve made some major improvements in the practice. We’ve developed a clear vision and plan for the business, and implementation of this vision is well underway. We have further developed our people, improved our team engagement and culture, increased our sales, reduced our expenses, and we are utilising our resources better……I would recommend Wayne’s services to any owner or manager who is serious about improving their small to medium business.”
