Llew and Advancer exemplify the art and science of building a new venture – combining practical methods and real-world experiences with a high degree of business and emotional intelligence. In helping us navigate the muddy waters of early-stage start-ups, Llew provided equal doses of stick and carrot to ensure that we were accountable, smart and motivated. He’s intelligent, personable and willing to impart his expertise in a way that allows you to build your own knowledge base through the process.
I’ve worked with Llew since 2010 on a variety of digital strategy, digital marketing, consulting and innovation advisory initiatives. Through Llew and his team’s strategies, the companies that I’ve represented have grown at huge rates across client acquisition, market share and revenue. Every time that we’ve engaged Llew, he’s has provided leadership and advice to the executive levels on the latest in digital and technology, and how it relates to business and marketing. He is a leader at growing passionate digital and business consulting teams that partner with us for the long term. I have no hesitation in recommending Llew for digital consulting, business advice and technology innovation projects.
As a technology company we had numerous separate applications ‘helping’ us achieve our goals. I brought Llew in on a change “housekeeping” exercise. Llew has the rarest of talents in being able to talk to CEOs with the same level of command as when he is talking to the most technical of technicians. Within a matter of weeks, Llew had transformed our business, literally. Without taking away any of the team’s creature comfort software applications (no applications were removed), Llew brought them all together. All the systems now talk, they are all integrated, everyone knows where they stand and everyone knows what is going on. Most amazingly, Llew did this by actually increasing staff engagement. A change process that improved staff morale – a first for this old dog! Our team is more connected than ever and what started out with me being uncomfortable with so many systems ended with a short, sharp project that relieved my concerns and brought the entire company closer together.
