  • What Clients say about us

    Some of our work

    Patrick Ryan

    MD, Principal Consultant - Mobius Consulting - Cape Town - SA

    By all accounts the two day strategy session went fantastically well.

    I couldn’t have wished for a better outcome. I think a large part of the credit should go to Adele and Ian for helping conceptualize the contents of the agenda (in particular the flow between “feelings” and “facts”), helping with the content of the slide packs and assisting with independent facilitation.

    Thank you very much!

    Christopher Guy

    MD - Makrosafe Holdings (Pty) Ltd. - SA

    MAKROSAFE Identified the need for a business coach that was flexible in approach yet able to provide structure and strategy in achieving growth of the business.

    Ian and Adele have not provided only structure but have through dedication and effective processes actually moved the business in the direction which has already shown growth even in its infancy phases of the coaching process.

    Bryan Banfield

    Owner - Artibeus IT Support - SA

    My company is 3 years ahead of my personal plans.

    As a business owner, I have been lead and guided through one of the scariest times on my business... letting go of functions that I don't need to own anymore. This is all thanks to Ian and Adele. I am close to owning a business and not owning my job. Thank you, Ian and adele... Thank you!

    Cameron Phillips

    Owner -Fynbos Accounting - SA

    Ian and The Missing Piece team provide a sense of calm and wisdom amidst the turbulence of the entrepreneurial world in South Africa.

    Ian cares about more than just the numbers. His holistic approach to how a business can grow and thrive has made him an integral part of the Fynbos Accounting team.

    His passion for business is compelling, and the investment I have made in The Missing Piece (both financially and emotionally) will yield a positive ROI for years to come.

    I look forward to our relationship growing as my business does, and all of the “off Balance Sheet” thinking that we will continue to do in the future.

    Edward Lindsay-Bowman

    Owner - Thrive Digital - SA

    Ian worked with us at Thrive Digital for a 4 month period and in this short time he enthused our team with his energy as a Sales Coach to strengthen our sales focus that was needed for our business. In addition to this, he also helped us through his methodology and experience to revisit & realign our Vision for Thrive which we are now driving forward ..

    Gary le Breton

    Owner - Compass Fire - SA

    When I first started working with Ian , he showed me a way of looking at my business in a very simple fashion. He has helped me to put Compass Fire in a position where I can concentrate on planning for next years growth and let the business function without my daily input. He not only provides methodology on how to achieve this , he also helps to implement his strategies and work as an integral part of my team, personal plans and professional goals.
