I’m delighted so many people take the time to write to me following workshops and coaching sessions. Here are some emails and recommendations I’ve received.

“Dear Dan

Just to let you know that all the designers are singing your praises and finding the sessions really helpful.  Marlene told me you are 'the most helpful person she's ever met to advise her on her business'.  She's very excited as the Southbank Shop seem interested in stocking her tea and coffee cosies alongside the other products she's developing tea towels, aprons and oven gloves.”

“Hi Dan,  I just wanted to say thank you for such an informative and interesting training session at CGA yesterday. It has given me my confidence back which occasionally gets lost somewhere along the way! I rang some of my stockists this morning to check how they are doing and ended up with a big order from one of them so I think I am projecting things more positively now! And I will definitely get onto the press and be a bit more proactive with that, rather than waiting for people to come to me. You were very very helpful.  I look forward to seeing you at another training session soon. All the best…

Dan Maier   Business Coach

“I would love to recommend Dan.  

She was one of the best Business Mentors I have ever had the chance to work with.  Her assignments were concrete, her attitude inspirational, her suggested action steps practical.  Her support has been exactly what was needed at precisely the right time.”

 Dan's advice was invaluable. She not only gave me great tips on my packaging and presentation for trade shows and exhibitions, she also gave me costing and pricing advice that I so badly needed. It gave me the confidence to approach a buyer for the Tate galleries. And I now have my first collection in Tate Britain. Thank you Dan!”

“I have employed Dan as a business adviser at various turning points and crucial moments in the development of my business. She helped me clarify future goals and evaluate what the business needed to continue growing. Dan was an invaluable support, offering in depth knowledge and advice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her”

“Hello Dan,

It was great to meet you last Saturday - thanks again for all your advice and feedback - it was really good to get so many practical suggestions - (thanks for the meeting notes)  I am hoping to see you again on November 13th - it will be really useful to see you again after I have had the chance to put some of your advice into practise. I am busy timing each piece of knitting, as you suggested.

Many thanks again”

“Hi Dan,

Just wanted to say many thanks again for your invaluable feedback and advice yesterday - and for extending my session- that was so kind of you and greatly appreciated!! Am feeling very fired up today!

With warmest wishes”
