Dr Mark Ethell - Testimonial for Al Ramos, Business Coach, Canberra If you want your business to be a pleasure to manage and profitable to own then engaging Al Ramos to partner with you on that journey is a 'no-brainer'. If you also want to create wealth along the way and achieve financial independence then you can't afford not to have Al coach you in the process. I have known Al for 15 years and he is unfailingly enthusiastic, a valued lateral thinker who will challenge your assumptions, as well as a friend and coach who will hold you accountable to the areas of strategic focus that you and your team have agreed upon. It can, at times, feel lonely as the leader and having such a trusted adviser is a godsend - which your nearest and dearest will be grateful for too! Al has been an important part of the growth and development of my Canberra Veterinary Group of practices - so much so, that I have been fortunate to attract Al onto the Board of the public company I co-founded, VetShare Limited, as well as Independent Vets of Australia (IVA), a buying and management group owned by more than 200 vets. In short, don't think about it - pick up the phone and call Al for a chat. "I have been working with Al Ramos since 2002. Over the many years Al has been a sounding board for every significant decision I have made regarding my business. He has provided me with support, ideas, direction & a sense of security in the decisions that I have made to get my business & personal finances to the strong & secure footing they are in today". I approached Al to help me refocus on moving the business forward strategically to fulfil personal and business goals. His patience and persistence as he has worked with me, helped me gradually integrate changes into the business strategy that were better for the long haul and freed me up to keep improving my knowledge and skills as a financial planner so as to better serve my clients. Prior to commencing the business coaching program my business was a mid-table performer in a national network of over 250 members, now I have regularly placed in the top 10 and even more importantly, I have been able to take more holidays than I had in the 20 years prior! I've also appreciated Al's respect of my values not only in business, but in life as well. My desire to volunteer and serve not-for-profit organisations was well incorporated into my business strategy. Al has certainly helped me find a healthy balance between being effective in business whilst still being socially responsible. Al has also assisted keep my team motivated and working together to achieve our business goals. They have greatly benefitted from his coaching and he makes each of them feel valued and a key part of the business moving forward in a positive direction. I am confident that Al will be able to continue to help me manage my business by "working on it " not just "in it" for many years to come. He is committed to seeing me through to retirement and enabling the business to carry on long after I am gone. We met Al about 7 years ago when we took the leap into a mid-sized business through the acquisition of a competitor. Prior to that we had minimal strategic leadership & accountability, through the acquisition & Al's guidance we've grown our business skills & developed a much more strategic specialization in the market we serve & the type of work we deliver. This has not only enabled us to achieve good results, it has also significantly grown our confidence in the direction we are taking & our capability to deliver on it! Al isn't just our business coach, he's become a friend that really cares! He's usually the first person we call when an issue arises in our business, he's always there with strategic advice that's to the point & based in his great personal experience, but he delivers it in ways that grows our own capabilities & thus our confidence ... he's helped us immensely! Our experience has been that we get much more than just business coaching, the breadth & depth of practical business know-how he has accumulated from owning his own business, advising other business owners and the corporate world means he actually brings an invaluable resource base to us - his networks have become ours, he is most pro-active in sharing them whenever he feels they can add value to us. His true value has particularly come to life for us through his practical implementation support, he empowers us with his diagrams, tools, templates & endless resources that greatly help us implement the actions we co-create & commit to doing. ... thank you Al!
