Director, Apulse Recruitment Pty Ltd.

As a startup recruitment agency, I made some bad decisions with the people I chose to help me with my business.  I was fortunate to have met Jon from JPG Business Solutions; he took the time out to understand where my business was at and the issues I was facing that challenged the growth of my business.  After the analysis was completed, Jon had an action plan as to what changes needed to occur, who the right the contacts would be for my business to grow.  Through Jon’s recommendations, I came to realise the errors I had made.  Essentially Jon has saved me a lot of money, and now I am dealing with other professionals introduced, who understand the challenges of a small startup recruitment agency.  Thanks Jon, I now have a network of people I can turn to, which is what every small business owner needs. I can’t thank you enough for the personalised service you delivered and you’re someone whom I would always turn to whenever I require help to connect with the right professional’s to help with the growth of my business.
