Supporting SMEs with a dynamic, fun & insight driven approach
Who are we?
Sam Howell Ltd Business Consultancy is a Dorset-based Strategy Firm that support companies from sole-traders to fully fledged SMEs.
We offer much more than ‘business advice’, for some companies we are an outsourced part of their team and have been for a over 6 years!
To sum it up though, we’re a small team who assist with growth, planning and development through a professional, relaxed and friendly approach.
What do we do?
Every business owner, sole trader and company is different and they come to us for a number of reasons…
boosting sales, number crunching and idea generation are just some of the areas we work on, but the common theme is they all want to be better!
We’re quite different from the traditional consultancy practices, you’ll find no boring briefcases here… oh, and we support our clients 24/7!
Here are some of our reviews.
I've known Sam and his team for the last twelve months and their a wonderful bunch! Real advocates of the local business community. Sam's refereed me some sizable clients and projects from his network and is always happy to sit down for a coffee when I need that external perspective on my business. He is never afraid to tell you the hard truths and help you navigate solutions. 👊
Sam and his team helped me so much when it came to setting up my own business. With the team's knowledge of the industry, they helped define and focus on what I needed to achieve for my business. The team is organised and efficient, delivering creative and resourceful information to their clients so they achieve the best when it comes to starting up a successful business. Would highly recommend Sam Howell LTD.
I came to Sam Howell Ltd for work experience wanting to find out more about the business world, they have been a major influence on me since. Sam possess a wealth of the industry knowledge always wanting to find out more while inspiring others. I've had a great week here with Sam and his team and cannot thank him enough for having me.
We recently met with Sam in reference to developing and growing our Performing Arts School. Sam has a wealth of knowledge and his professionalism, yet friendly approach was welcoming. He discussed and helped us to analysis where we were at with our business and encouraged us to implement new strategies and idea's. We are looking forward to building on a working relationship with him. Highly recommend his expertise. Thank you Sam!
I have been working with ‘The Sams’ as they have become known in my world for a couple of months now and my business has made more positive progression than it had in the previous two years. Working with these guys is like having your very own business counsellor on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. At no point have I felt pushed into making any decisions, but every decision that I make is now well thought out, efficient and effective. They don’t pretend to know all the answers, however they seem to know most of them, but if a specialist is required they are confident they know a man/woman that can be pulled in. Perfect for those deep breath moments, where that extra bit of confidence is needed and for celebrating the wins with. My meetings allow me to stop, focus, be challenged and really pay thought to the decisions that make a difference. Without these guys and girls I am not sure where the business would be right now, but I know it wouldn’t have come this far, this quickly. If you think you don’t need ‘The Sams’ in your life, you are obviously happy to stay where you are. If you want to move forward with your journey, call them, NOW!
Sam and his team are amazing to work with, one of the best approaches to forward thinking I have experienced! I would highly recommend having a chat with Sam, and if you don't get a progressively positive outcome from their services, I will eat my hat. I have received an extremely open, honest and committed level of service in my opinion, 2nd to none!
Running a business means you never get the time to look in the heart of your business, and make the changes necessary for it to work more efficiently and grow. Just a couple of hours to reflect honestly, discuss the small steps required and make an achievable plan has left me feeling energised and confidant for the future. Thank you sam-howell.co.uk
Honestly, I don’t know where my business or I would be without Sam and his team at Sam Howell Ltd. There is a lot of information out there about what to do when endeavoring into being an entrepreneur, but Sam showed me how to tackle this to do list and where to start from. This ‘how’ element is a key difference in genuine and proactive guidance, and is what has made Sam the biggest contributor to my start-up. At the beginning Sam broke down how to go about doing market research, analyzing my competitors and the market place so I could assess where I wanted my product to sit. He provided insight and suggestions on how to reach potential clients, who my clients might be, and possible events in which to showcase and promote my products. He taught me methods of how to continuously generate content, and helped me produced a range of products to show investors; orchestrating a photo shoot for me. He gave me deadlines to abide by, put me in contact with other entrepreneurs and professionals that will be essential for the success of my business, and has even offered his office to me if and when I need motivation and to be surrounded by productivity. From the moment I met Sam his positivity and forward thinking has been beyond encouraging/supportive and always leaves me in a state of ‘I can do this’ when it seams like there are so many things in opposition. For the generous amount of time and support Sam has given me, this review cannot say enough! I very highly recommend Sam and his team to anyone considering starting their own business. His contribution is invaluable to me, and I feel extremely fortunate to have had him on my side. A HUGE thank you to Sam, Beth, Mary, and everyone as Sam Howell Ltd.
