(Nick's team) exceeded our expectations with their professionalism, creativity, efficiency and patience. I personally learnt so much and it has validated the importance of ‘bringing the professionals in’.

What the video did was gave them a window into the heart and soul of the business, and I actually think they were quite touched and inspired by it... (The new owners said) "What really shines through so strongly here is the incredible sense of pride and commitment and heart, at a level which we honestly have never seen in any other business that we’ve acquired.” And I KNOW it was the video that gave them that impression. Thanks for your hard work. It definitely paid off for us.
