As specialists in Turnaround Management and Business Coaching, Kestrel Solutions helps business owners to improve their operational and financial performance.

Peter says his time at the coal face of business ensures he is uniquely positioned to understand what many SME owners are going through.

“At Kestrel we bring together a proven suite of resources and best practice methodologies to deliver customised solutions. Our commitment is to ensure our clients are equipped with the skills and expertise they’ll need to begin charting their own course to success."

A sponsor and presenter of the Chamber’s March Night Owls event, Peter had some keen advice for business owners looking to network.

“When we meet someone one of the worst things we can do is say that we are ‘busy’. "

“Saying we are ‘busy’ often shuts down the conversation when really we should be looking for different ways to say that we have capacity and that we are capable, ready and waiting to take on new work.”
