  • manage that team and coordinate their work distribution

More about IgniteTM

“Activate have helped us manage our substantial growth by providing us with practical tools and analysis. They've helped us understand the financial, staff and process side of our business better, putting in systems to manage it more effectively. Throughout it all, they've helped us focus on what's really important to our business, and keep up with our growth.”

Darren Black, Owner Manager,

“My head was spinning,  my business had grown quickly and all I knew was I needed some guidance and structure.  I didn't expect it to be such a big job for me though.  I thought Lisa would wiggle her nose and it would be done, but that's not how it works.  It's been a lot of hard work, but now I can see the fruits of my labour paying off.  Lisa's taught me where my profits are made, and helped us implement systems that enable us to maximise it.  I've got a lot more money in the bank than at the same time last year.  I'm also more organised, I'm enjoying my business more and I even feel organised enough to keep growing it.  Activate have helped me get organised and build something that can operate without me.”
