Testimonials- What our clients are saying about working with us.
We are the Profit Professionals , and Turn Around Specialists
The way I work has totally changed; the efficiency of both me and my team has increased. After just 3 months of working with Normand Burke two of the initiatives I have implemented are already starting to significantly pay off. I started doing a daily team meeting and my team and I created a scoreboard which tracks our daily, weekly and monthly productivity and efficiency. These two things combined have created an environment with a sense of competition, where my staff compete to be # 1 on the board each day. It has be so effective that in month three we produced 45% more work, if that wasn’t enough we accomplished those numbers with a 67% reduction in staff.

Our Business Coach Norm Burke was introduced to us via a referral at a very crucial junction of our business . We were a three equal partner family business that was growing out of control. We were faced with a decision to sell ,change, or rot. Our coach acted as a third party facilitator to create a winning a solution for all parties. This could not be accomplished by the account or the lawyer . Not all Business Coaches are created equal. ( Our Coach Norm and his team ) are not your normal coaching team. They are your business dream team, bringing to you the disciplines and skills required to grow your business wisely in the 21st century. We grew by 30% besides tall the changes we were making. However, if you focus on the monthly retainer or your growth as a company, you're not focused on the long-term. This is about living your life to leave a legacy for your family , your your employees, and impact eternity.
-Lyndon R-CEO Construction Company
“The best thing I've gotten from business coaching is cash and business growth. The new Ad Coach Norm helped me with works! I've made 4 sales totalling $14,400.00 compared to NO sales off the old Ad I had all of last year . The sales results I'm getting are awesome! During 6 weeks, I landed 4 new sales with a 57% conversion rate up from 20%. Everyday I am thankful I got a great Business Coach

Normand Burke became my business coach and mentor 2014, when I realised that I was working almost 7 days a week and still couldn’t see the end of the tunnel. Norm has shown me that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and how we could get to that light. Norms coaching has helped me get back to why I first went into business, and that was to work less, have flexible working hours and make more money. My business now runs by itself and has allowed me to start another business, which we are presently setting up as a Franchise. I can’t thank Norm enough for all the help and success that he has brought to my business.
– Robert J -Stainless Water Tanks Company
Norm’s ability in business has been a key to the success that my boys have realised in business. I never had a business coach and I would never have spent the money – now I realise it was to my detriment and to that of the people I worked with.
When asked what he observes about the way they conducts business after working with Norm, Stephen replied:
• We now make new, exciting and dynamic choices in business
• We think outside the box & make choices outside the box
• Norm guides them through logical choices
• Business choices are more innovative with Norm as part of the team
• Norm provides new and fresh eyes and ears to help make exciting choices
• Advertising and promotions that create excitement are developed with Norm
"Why continue doing the same things that may, or may not be working, when you can find how to make your business work for you."
– Stephen P- Auto Mechanic Shop

“Awesome vision, training from the inside out. Developing a team of unique people to be the best they can be. Norm, thanks for helping is out and enabling my dreams to come true and inspire others to reach for their dreams”
– Jody V - General Contractor
There are 2 things that come to mind when I think of Normand and the impact he has had on our team; communication and client appreciation. Working with Normand over the past 1.5 years communication has improved, more than just improved we have some now where we had little to zero before. We have had more real meaningful staff and managers meetings in the past 12 months than we have had in the previous 12 years. We have been in business for over 30 Years and we wanted to find a way to say thank you to our clients. We initiated a Gift Card program for our top clients, we mailed out 446 gift cards ranging in value from $50 to $150. It was a very interesting program for us, so not only did we say Thank You, the program lead to an increase in sales. Forty percent of the Gift Cards have been redeemed, after just 90 days, it has brought in $49,500 in revenue, and we increased our average dollar sale on those transactions by 75%.

“Quite simply the best training I have ever had… and I have attended a lot. Instructions, material, attention to detail, it was all top notch. I gained new insight into selling – but more importantly myself”
Karl R- C.E.O. Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration
“I was wrong! It took a leap of faith to let my Coach Norm show me that my business can run well without having me at the counter , but I'm glad for it. Now I'm spending new found time (15 hours per week extra) developing marketing and enhancing operational strategies that will grow my business.”
– Tod D - Roofing Company
“Thank you so much for an outstanding and life changing training. Team building was taken to a new and higher level for me; you knew exactly when we needed pushing, when we needed support and when we needed encouragement. My personal thanks for helping me breakthrough a couple of walls that I did not think I could go through.
– Jason B - Air Conditioning and Heating Company
Until I met Normand and Q Six Business Growth Coaching , I was working 60 to 75 hours a week, burned out and helpless to get out of the rut. Now six months later, I work approximately 45 hours a week with the help of my new staff. I delegate better, hire better, with more time for myself and my family. I have learned how to spend my time working on my business instead of in my business. Plus, I have increased my sales in the first half of 2017 by 34%. Q Six Business Growth Coaching was money well spent!
-Daniel R - Construction Contractor
I found the service of Q Six Business Growth Coaching and Norm to be very enlightening. He gave me the opportunity to detach myself from the day to day operations of my company and spend time planning and analysing formats and procedures. He also gave me the opportunity to safely air my concerns and insecurities about my business.
-William H - Commercial and Residential Management Group
I felt a business coach was essential during start-up, when everything was new and I was feeling “out on a limb.” I needed Q Six Business Growth Coaching for encouragement, building confidence, getting through the start-up questions, and setting goals and strategies. There are many resources out there, but I found that a personal coach like Norm, who focused on tracking progress in my specific business, was the most helpful.
-Andrea L - Retailer
"The most inspiring, entertaining, thought provoking conversations I’ve had for a long time… and I see lots! Thanks for the great ideas.
– Mike F – Residential and Commercial Paining Company
Normand Burke speaks with an enthusiasm and passion for his subject that will make you question the clarity of your own business thinking."
– Britta T – Flower Shop
I was very reluctant to start business coaching and had many doubts about what the program could offer that I didn’t already have. After three months working with Norm, however, I am completely convinced that coaching it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my business. In a very short period of time, it has revolutionised the way I think about business, bringing new organisation, direction and motivation. As a coach, Norm brings excellent perspective to any situation, whether it relates to day to day operations or long term vision and goals. I wish I had done this sooner!
-Christine O- Realtor
Normand has a unique set of skills to help you do what it takes to be successful. He helps you stay honest and accountable to your vision for yourself, your family and your business. For small business owners like us, Norm was a great support in bringing some of our many ideas and goals into the real world. He took the time to get to know us and our business, and was instrumental in our process of hiring and training new staff. Thanks Norm!
-Amanda and Carter K - Landscaping and design Company
For a few years we have been trying to find some sort of guide to help us organise our business and work with our company and our ideas. We had talked with at least a half dozen companies. At our interviews all of these companies told us how they could point out we were doing wrong, and that our company would fail if we didn’t get their help.
Then we met Normand Burke. Right away we noticed Norm’s passion to help businesses and their owners grow and realise their true potential and to show the owners that working on the business rather than in their business would be the benefit.
Normand came to our first meeting and asked us where we wanted our company to go. Norm offered to work with us to make our company stronger.
Our company has worked hard to get all of our ducks in the one row. Its even better to have someone help us line those ducks up, release the ones we don’t need and take care of the ones we do.
