Who are we?
An experienced team of business advisers who have run successful small businesses and have a desire to pass on that knowledge to others. Unlike many coaches and mentors we have actually 'been there'. We have created a brand, generated leads and converted them into sales. We have lived through cashflow crises, mergers, acquisitions and board room disputes.
Barlow Frith Communications
At Barlow Frith Communications we worked with Synergis to identify our growth plans.
Synergis analysed our goals and aspirations and helped us to implement the appropriate strategy, defining sensible targets to be met and enabling us to achieve those targets.
They have also advised us on financial, HR, and general business guidance, leading to an improvement in sales and cashflow.
We are immensely pleased with the results following their guidance and sound advice and continue to value their support.

Hamish Renton and Associates
We have used Synergis for the past three years to help us improve our business planning and strategy.
They have helped us develop a vision for the company as well as a comprehensive business plan.
We are very pleased with the results and Synergis have helped us achieve our challenging business goals. We are continuing to use Synergis and would strongly recommend them to any SME wishing to grow.

We engaged the services of Russell Abbott of Synergis to assist us with our business strategy, marketing, and cashflow.
Russell reviewed our business and advised us on a better way to achieve our goals in a realistic timeframe. With effective planning and implementation he has changed the way to advertise our company, and these changes have had marked results on our sales.
We have worked with Russell for a number of years now and we have found his advice invaluable.
Without Russell's advice we would not have achieved our goals of increasing business productivity and turnover. We continue to use Russell's services helping us to make business decisions that will improve the way in which our company works.
We have worked with Russell for a number of years now and we have found his advice invaluable. Matt Reid - Managing Director
We have worked with Synergis Mentoring for three years. During that time they have helped us to develop a comprehensive plan using their Vision Orbit tool.
This has proved invaluable alongside Russell's knowledge and experience gained from building and selling his marketing agency. Russell has also helped us develop a really strong client service function which has resulted in a greater proportion of retained business.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Synergis Mentoring if you are serious about growing your business. Steve Boyce - Managing Director
