Powerful Allies Ltd
Powerful Allies is a specialist energy buyer with a very strong track record in manufacturing, engineering, (James Robson CEO was trained as an Automotive Engineer and subsequently became a Commercial Helicopter Pilot), hospitality and education.
In less than 4 years we have become the partner of choice for many very large energy users who have adopted our unique Open Competition tender process. Our task is to cut the cost of your energy contracts, and we are very effective indeed.
Dave Jones of Peterson Springs recently commented;
"We receive calls virtually every day from energy brokers, and so I was initially quite sceptical when James first came to meet me. But their approach is different and transparent; very quickly Powerful Allies were able to set up new contracts which are saving us a very considerable sum, in addition to negotiating a full CCL rebate for us. The process was very simple from my perspective.
Beyond energy buying, James has also introduced me to other recommended partners for LED installation and energy audits. Again, the proposals look very interesting. So we look forward to seeing our consumption reduced to the minimum too"
The Powerful Allies model works on very tight margins, huge buying volumes and complete transparency which means the savings go directly to your business and there are no unwelcome surprises.

J Mann Associates Ltd
We are HR experts and we create great places to work.
We work with entrepreneurial business owners, employing between 10 and 200 people with a 6, 7 or 8 figure turnover, looking to grow their business.
When it comes to HR, most people think about the processes and procedures the ‘frustrating' systems needed to keep your business legal and compliant. And it's true these foundations are critical. Without them businesses underperform and suffer from inconsistency.
But if you want your people to thrive and do their best work, these essentials alone aren't enough. You need to add a layer on top.
So are you struggling to get what you need from your staff?
If so, it's possible you're suffering from ‘People Disease' an all too common business problem that shows up in many ways:
- Sometimes symptoms are obvious. Lateness, poor performance, and frequent absences or a lack of consistent systems and processes needed to manage the day-to-day.
- Other times symptoms are hidden. For example, you believe no one will ever work as hard as you or that good people just don't exist.
People Disease harms your company. In fact, even superficial symptoms can compromise your business. That's because unchecked, People Disease spreads like a virus.
This leads to demotivated staff that can stir up problems and make mistakes. What's more, disengaged staff don't do their best work simply because they don't care as much about your business as you want them to.
Fortunately, there is a remedy and healing starts with you.
You see, in my 20+ years in HR, I've found ‘People Disease' almost always starts and finishes with the owner.
And the cure is twofold. You must:
- Create a great place to work
- Recruit, motivate, and retain good people
And that's why I developed The P.E.O.P.L.E.™ System to help entrepreneurial business owners recruit, motivate, and retain the best people so they can achieve their goals.
Call us on 01980 622167 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to cure your P.E.O.P.L.E. disease.

Leadership and Management
I have always believed in the importance of enjoying the work we do. Many of us spend longer with our work colleagues than we do with our partners, so we may as well enjoy it!
But not only that! When we are happy at work we can be more productive and our businesses can be more profitable.
My passion is to help other leaders create focused, motivated and happy teams who enjoy doing what they do, have high levels of autonomy and really support the aims of the company without having to be told what to do all day.
I enjoyed 16 years in the police service as an Inspector and also have a commercial and manufacturing engineering background. This gives me an unusual blend of personal skills, coupled with down to earth, proactive results driven focus. I value honestly, simplicity and practicality so this is what you will get!
Whether you run your own business or you’re a leader looking to improve performance, you can achieve more whilst getting more time for you! I work with leaders and teams using my simple, productive and fun tools and techniques to maximise performance.
Sometimes coaching and development can be seen as “fluffy”; however you will find no fluffiness here. What you will find is a down to earth, practical approach and a focus on taking action. My engineering and policing background provides a no nonsense approach to Leadership Development and Executive Coaching.”
