I can't speak more highly of the Step Change experience we've just had with Ashton and Ade. A full day with our key management team pulling apart the current public messaging fronting our group's core product offering - which hadn't been working - and strategically reconfiguring it into sound bites and punchy market-specific summaries. To be honest when Ashton presented his findings at the day's end I was blown away. I feel we are now about to take on a new public face that finally represents us. Couldn't recommend Step Change highly enough! Chris

We recently had Ashton present to us at our CEO Monthly Forum in the Hunter Valley (TEC 48). In my 10 years of chairing this forum, Ashton was certainly in the top 3 speakers in all four facets that we measure. Maybe even the best. His presentation was relevant to all members including one with Finance Degrees and responsibilities who said 'Ï normally hate Marketing Presenters as they just rave on, but Ashton gave me so much stuff I can use. He was the best."Other comments included "What doesn't this bloke know about marketing?" And "I now have a better understanding of how marketing should be done and followed through." And it goes on.On a personal basis, Ashton did his homework before he arrived to present and his presentation fitted into everyone of our members needs. Ashton and Step Change would be an asset to any firm or group. I have no hesitation is giving him a 5 out of 5. Well done Ashton and thanks so much
