What clients and contacts of Upwind Consulting have to say about our work

“I turned to Aidan for ideas and support when I hired new sales people in our business. We discussed our sales structure, strategy, and product details, the problems we were encountering and what we needed to achieve. In a very short time Aidan was able to break down these problems and identify potential solutions. With these solutions, he designed and ran a sales training programme that far exceeded my expectations. He spent time with the staff and with the customer and got a deep understanding of our business. The impact that Aidan had was evident straight away.

I defer to Aidan on a number of issues, and he always gives valuable advice in a practical manner. Aidan brings a different level of value to our business and I can highly recommend his service.”

“We used the services of Aidan from Upwind Consulting to motivate our team in a time where the business was experiencing significant growth but where there were additional opportunities in the market to explore and to develop. Aidan’s positivity energised the team and enabled us to work together to increase capacity and make time to focus on new clients and markets.”

I first asked Aidan O’Connell to work with some of our solicitors over five years ago. We wanted some focus on business development and I liked the way he worked with us as his client. Aidan brings a different ‘Sales’ view to our legal business every time we meet. Aidan brings business development to life in a simple and practical way. He always gets us to look at developing business opportunities in different ways. I recommend any law firm that wants to grow and develop their business to contact Aidan.

I really appreciate Aidan’s valuable input and advice and got a lot from being able to pick his brain about certain aspects of the sales process that were causing headaches for me. Based on everything we discussed and the feedback he gave throughout our day I’m confident I am the right person to begin driving sales for the company and now I have the tools to do it. The information Aidan put together will be treated as my bible for the next 12 months and long into the future! It’s excellent!

I gained a lot from working with Aidan, most of all the confidence that I can drive the business on the sales front and not just from behind a computer screen.

I would recommend Aidan to any firm looking to grow their business.
