“We set up our first business, Cafe Saison in 2018. With very little knowledge of HR and employee contracts, we had no idea where to start. Jo was very helpful in explaining everything, and highlighting elements we hadn’t even thought of, and answering any questions in a way that was easy to understand. We now feel fully comfortable knowing we have best practices in place, and knowing that Jo is there for on-going support, part of which is Jo’s continued purchases from us for her daughter, who is our number one chocolate brownie fan!”
Owner, Café Saison
“The first time I met Jo I shared with her the vision for my new business. Jo immediately understood and straight away made me feel at ease. Jo’s knowledge and expertise, along with her encouragement and support has been amazing, and helped my business start-up and open. Jo’s communication is fantastic, from face-to-face meetings, emails or telephone calls, Jo has been able to provide me with details, documents and shows a genuine passion for my business to grow. I am so grateful to Jo and cannot recommend her highly enough! I will continue to seek Jo’s expertise and guidance throughout opening and throughout my businesses growth.”
