I'm an owner of Visually Explained Ltd, social media service provider. Over the last 5 years I've collected a great number of business cards and contacts and was endlessly looking for a simple solution to get those contacts into a database that would allow me to follow a sales process and stay in touch with my prospects, leads and clients. Andrew introduced me into a FREE CRM (Customer Relationship Management system), then integrated it with my e-mail and my website. He provided me with training and showed me how to quickly add business cards into the database. I now have working, current and relevant database that is GDPR compliant. With minimal effort and time, I created and published my first newsletter (first one in 5 years). All my prospects now get added automatically into my CRM where I can make notes on how we met. I also maintain my current leads and deals - all in one place.My sales process has never been so organised and under control. There are a lot of expensive and complicated business solutions on the market. To find what's work takes too much time away from the business, so to come across a hands-on Business Consultancy Company who can talk business strategy at the same time as implementing real and positive change to my business has proved a real advantage. I would thoroughly recommend Andrew Hatcher from Swindon Consultants. - Yola O'Hara MD, Visually Explained Ltd More...

Andrew came in for a couple days to have a look at our business and how our processes were working. He spent time watching the team and speaking with them about how they work. Because of his background, Andrew has a vast amount of knowledge to leverage in providing guidance and advice on how we can make significant tweaks and changes to our processes to maximise our effectiveness and efficiency.Andrew doesn't just 'tell you' what you need to do to improve your business, he gets stuck in and works side by side with you and your team to find the right approach for your business.I can highly recommend Andrew and Swindon Business Consultants.

The day to day realities of running a business can be all consuming.
Wider strategies and long term goals can often seem overwhelming and difficult to implement. Andrew at Swindon Consultants was key in identifying exactly what my business needed in terms of growth, future planning and management. Andrew's wealth of empirical knowledge has elevated my business to the next level and given me huge confidence and belief in my business dealings.
Andrew is personable, professional and highly knowledgeable.
Now he has got my company firing on all cylinders I look forward to an exciting, prosperous future.

Q&A

I love to as ask the question why and drill down to the real issues that are affecting a companies or peoples performance. I love to meet business owners or people in the wider community, putting them at ease with my demeanor to work together to achieve the desired customers outcome leaving them empowered, invigorated and back in charge of running their lives or companies.

I love to make positive change and to witness what that this can do for business owners, staff and the wider community. I love variety and I love a challenge. Being a Business owner is considered as one of the loneliest positions and I love to give support to anyone who feels out of their depth, finding out what keeps them awake at night, giving them the best attention with great support and advice.

Having run our family small business for some 24 years, I have been fortunate enough to be able to learn all aspects of running a SME. From HR, well-being, health and safety, shop floor management, setting processes and procedures, integrating technologies and designing strategies with a strong customer focus and plan for the future.

Due diligence, quality, excellence and standards are high on my list and I wanted to go out and help businesses achieve their dreams without making many of the costly mistakes, providing fast-trak strategies to positive and sustainable growth. To make a real and positive contribution to small business owners is what keeps me awake at night.

Customers should choose me as I am a great listener, in touch with my emotions and can provide sound practical advice and suggestions. I like to leave no stone un-turned and provide a different insight into business. I have a solid grasp of all the issues facing small businesses and the ups and downs associated. The business that I ran employed 27 people and turned over close to three million pounds.
