Client Testimonials

Who is driving your business?

There is rarely a major task undertaken in your lifetime that you don’t plan for… buying a house, getting married, moving abroad, even going on holiday, however I am sometimes astonished by the lack of business operating who don’t have a business plan or if they do, they virtually never refer to it. Your business plan is your map of which direction to drive the business and without some pre planning the journey can be fraught.

Reviewing the map along the way is of course also key in arriving where you want to be!

The following clients review their journey with Directus.

I was lucky enough to attend Rosemary Morrison's Exploring Enterprise course in the Ormeau Business center in February of 2013 at a time I was starting up my own media company. The course was very practical and full of useful easy to understand key information which resolved many of my concerns and made the entire start up process much less daunting. 

Rosemary was extremely approachable with great people skills and streets ahead of other business and career trainers I have gone to in the past. You simply cant beat someone who has run their own business, her real life experience shone through and she is certainly someone I will be booking again in the future.

quoteoption2.pngI cannot recommend Rosemary enough! Rosemary was my business trainer and mentor on the Advantage NI Young Entrepreneurs programme and later, my trainer on the Invest NI Go For It programme. Her job was to train me with the basic skills needed to survive in the business world.

2 years later, I'm still here. I think that says all that needs to be said about Rosemary's gift for teaching others and making difficult concepts simple. I wouldn't have survived as an entrepreneur if it wasn't for her guiding hands in the early days.

Reading feedback from end users is always a pleasure. Looking forward to working with Rosemary in the future.

Rosemary ensured that every ‘i was dotted and every t crossed’, which is a testimony to her excellent attention to detail. Personable and professional, Rosemary has a natural gift of wanting to help others.

quoteoption2.pngI have known Rosemary in a professional capacity for some 15 years. Rosemary is a highly committed professional who delivers to the very highest standards. My main experience of working with Rosemary is in her working promoting enterprise and working with SMEs to support their growth. Rosemary brings sound knowledge and networks and is a real pleasure to work with.

Steve Pollard
Business Development Manager at Business in the Community

quoteoption2.pngRosemary has been an invaluable resource to my business both in terms of personal support and her general awareness of business operations and in particular marketing and market research. 

The sometimes obvious questions often escape us business owners such as 
‘Have you researched your business and is there a demand for what you are offering?’ 
‘What elements of your marketing are working and why don’t you focus on those for now?’ 
Rosemary didn’t just ask these questions and leave me to find the answers. She facilitated our business to identify the answers and to recognise other opportunities for going forward. 
Thankfully Rosemary’s focus was on practical solutions and not simply business theory! 
I hope to work with Rosemary again in the future and would definitely recommend her service to any other business

quoteoption2.pngRosemary is a great advocate for the work of Young Enterprise NI. She has delivered a wide range of our programmes in schools over the years, and ensures that students are engaged and involved in the process. In addition, she is a true supporter of the organisation, making use of opportunities to promote the work of the organisation. I have no hesitation in recommending Rosemary.
