I have been fortunate enough to attend some of Steve’s training sessions as well as one-on-one mentoring sessions. Steve is one of the most astute business people I have ever met. His depth of knowledge and ability to cut through to the core issue are outstanding. A recent training session of Steve's that I attended was absolutely world
Steve is an amazing mentor! He was incredibly generous when I was going through some major business challenges with the buyout of a business partner, subsequent growth and eventually the sale of the business. Steve helped me identify the top key areas to focus which have had dramatic effects on the bottom line. One change implemented after a session with Steve resulted in a 15% increase in gross profit. I cannot recommend Steve more highly and hope to use his services in future businesses.
I was lucky enough to have steve as a mentor…and the wealth of knowledge he imparted to me during this time was once in a lifetime. Steve has a way of guiding each entrepreneur to truly be inspired to achieve more than they could imagine through implementing his simplified tools which led him to his own business success. Steve is so passionate about sharing his keys to success.
After doing Steve's training session I walked away with my mind completely blown. It's amazing how after a few hours he brought so much clarity on what it takes to truly scale our company with a step by step roadmap. If you're looking for help with the growth of your business, Steve is your man.
I’ve seen Steve McLeod from Courage for Profit in action for over a year now. His business knowledge and delivery of strategy is first class. Steve also has an analytical business mind. From these seminars we approached Steve to work with us in our business Nieuvision. Steve is now conducting our annual strategy day and quarterly strategy days in addition we requested his expertise in assisting us on our advisory board. If you have a strong desire to align you business, grow your business to the next level and make sure you are keeping the business on the right path, I would highly encourage using Courage for Profit.
I have known Steve for a number of years in different capacities. When I needed strategic guidance Steve was the first person that came to mind. He is a clear thinker who was able to assist me elucidate my commercial goals and objectives. Steve manages to eliminate the “outside noise” and facilitated the creation of my plan and roadmap in a practical and effective way.
