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. 👊
Met Sam at a local conference and have been close friends since. He has been of enormous help since I started my company and cant recommend him highly enough. I have no hesitation in referring him my own clients.
It's been an absolute pleasure working with Sam and his team over the last 18 months. When I first started working with Sam I wasn't looking for a business consultant I was looking for someone to come on a business journey with me and my team. I needed someone to learn and understand the ins and outs of our business, someone to share the highs and lows and Sam did exactly that. 3 years into the Cold Banana journey and we have grown almost 500% since our first year. Sam has been a major influence in this, helping guide and advise us strategically. I would highly recommend any startup business or any business looking to grow to the next level to sit down and have a chat with Sam to see what he can do for you. Business owners are so ingrained with doing the work that to have another pair of eyes looking at it a fresh is invaluable, and Sam gives that impartial professional view to help you succeed even further.
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.
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
I can’t recommend Sam Howell Ltd highly enough. They possess a wealth of industry knowledge and expertise, yet still manage to remain incredibly approachable and down-to-earth. As someone who’s launching a start-up, to have Sam’s guidance and advice is invaluable, and I’m extremely grateful to both him and his team for being so generous with their time. Thanks to their dynamic and pragmatic approach, I feel infinitely more inspired and confident in taking my own business forward. Thank you!
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!
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.
