After just 9 months of working with Zed, my sales have increased by 17% and profits have improved by an amazing 30%!
The clincher for me in taking Zed Morrey on as my business coach was him saying he could help me out with some ways to ensure I had more time at home with my family. I’d been working crazy hours and things at home were suffering as a result.
Zed has given me the opportunity to learn how to be more effective in my business and not to run it by the seat of my pants. He’s always up-beat and it’s infectious and gives me great ideas making me motivated to do things I wouldn’t normally do. I’ve learned how to delegate effectively and stopped doing jobs that were not value added.
I’m very happy with the relationship and the work we do together. He’s not cheap but it’s only a small price to pay. I get more time at home and you can’t put a price on that. I am much more effective with time and I’m able to pass on these skills to my staff.
I couldn’t recommend Zed enough. Give it a go—even on a trial basis. Just listen to him—you can’t afford not to. You’ll learn new and better ways of doing things and become open to new ideas. I don’t want to use anyone else!
Zed’s a great motivator. He even offered to step in and support my second in charge when I went away for a holiday. I felt great and I really appreciated that. As a result, Ian, my second in charge got some good ideas as well and I got to have a holiday with my family!
Our goal was for Zed to help take us to the next level and to release me from being hands-on. He helped me hire more staff—we went from 4 to 11 staff over 2–3 years. Our turnover has tripled and so has our profit. Even if it hadn’t gone up that much just being off the tools was worth it. I’m in much better physical shape and I feel more relaxed.
I needed someone like Zed helping me. I needed someone to talk to, and to provide guidance and support. Zed’s knowledgeable about business and I needed someone professional. Having done the reading I knew I needed someone who knew about business. Zed is someone with the right credentials.
The monthly client meetings Zed holds are really important for me because I get the opportunity to meet and talk to others in business. I can ring him as much as I like and talk through the issues. He likes to be efficient and I enjoy the professional contact I have with him. I’m very happy to recommended Zed to anyone else.
I’m an advocate!
I have only one regret—that I didn’t start working with Zed 15 years ago! Everything Zed promised, he has fulfilled. The main thing is the consistency—the simplicity of the objectives makes it easy to follow and understand. The recipe is good!
Zed helps you take responsibility and control of yourself and that provides the role model for staff to follow suit.
Thanks for providing me with on going assistance to build my business and being my sounding board. You have done an amazing job with my website and I have received numerous emails about how much easier it is to navigate around the page but also how fantastic it looks. The social networking sites that you have changed have also been an amazing improvement
I am so glad that Darren recommended me to you
I’ve had business coaches in the past and none of them can compare with Zed Morrey. The coaching model that Zed uses focuses on the individual business and recognises that there is no “one size fits all cookie cutter” type of solution when it comes to coaching.
I liked Zed’s approach and temperament from the start. I could talk to him and he understood my business. He listens, he’s honest and he provides the independent feedback I need. He takes my style into account works with me in a partnership where there’s responsibility on both sides. My ultimate goal was to work on the business not in it. Zed took that goal very seriously and worked with me to assess the needs across all aspects of my business. As much as Zed holds me accountable, he does his homework and I know he thinks about what’s in my best interests and for my business by the quality of the solutions he brings to our meetings. As a result, I have learned new skills along the way. For every question I have asked, Zed come up with a solution to help improve the business and the way I operate.
Yes, it’s challenging but it didn’t take long to see that Zed’s not just there for the pay cheque. If Zed saw he couldn’t add value, he’d leave. Zed honestly does what’s good for your business. They have a wide angle lens rather than a narrow view and when they talk about meeting your needs, they don’t guess what those needs might be, they find out what they are and they meet them.
Before Zed, I never had any measurements in the business. Now, just over two years later, we have budgets and targets projected for the following year with a 25% increase in income per year. I know how to run and manage the business and I am a lot more effective. We will have our best profit ever this year by about 50%. I can attribute much of that to the work Zed has done with me and my staff. I was stale and now I am invigorated and motivated because I have a turn-key business where I am not involved in the core day to day running because it runs very profitably without me. The work Zed has done with my management team enables them to operate the business very effectively with me providing the guidance, support and direction. I have so much confidence in Zed and now, with time on my hands, I am in a position where Zed and I are setting up other businesses together! It’s a partnership based on mutual respect with trust earned and proven.”
The most valuable part about working with Zed is that he trained us to use the tools to improve our business. We got excellent results using Zed’s products—we have exceptional figures on stock margins, stock holdings, and our customer base and foot traffi c. Since we started working with Zed, across the board, we have grown between 30–35% in 12–14 months. Over the last 6 months, our monthly budget has increased between 62–78%.
We were always passionate about our business but we’ve become even more passionate because of having renewed focus. The whole team has benefited. I am glad we took Zed on board because I’ve grown mentally physically, business wise, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. He’s punctual, motivating and has a good friendly demeanour and character. I would most definitely recommend him to others. I’d tell people to listen to what Zed says, think about what they want and be prepared to put in the hard work too. It’s a two way street. Don’t look at the cost—look at the end results.
Without a doubt Zed was good for me—100% both at home and at work!”
Goals and targets are able to be ticked off and we’re 20% up on growth from last year and part of that can be attributed to the focus Zed brings to me and the business.
Zed appeared at the right time, as I was in the final process of buying out the business, and wanted help with focus and planning for sustainable growth and direction. Zed’s no nonsense and straight talking approach appealed to me. He doesn’t sugar coat, he’s straight to the point, practical, professional and businesslike.
My investment in Zed is keeping me focussed, on target and I feel I am getting results. Goals and targets are able to be ticked off and we’re 20% up on growth from last year and part of that can be attributed to the focus Zed brings to me and the business. Zed’s good at what he does and honest in his approach. I enjoy working with him and his knowledge and understanding of the business and the industry, having a metal trade background, is significantly in his favour in working with me. I enjoy the meetings Zed organises too. As a group we discuss, brainstorm and problem solve together.
This provides practical support in terms of having contributions from like-minded people with similar desires to improve.“
I’m glad I said yes to taking on Zed Morrey as my consultant because my revenue has increased by about 30% over about 9 months. 7 Advisory Business system works. It’s well thought out. Being in business on your own is lonely because there’s no one to bounce ideas with. Zed Morrey fills that need for me. I like the time commitment we have. Zed’s responsive and we have a good understanding. He’s always available and doesn’t make off the cuff comments. He researches and comes back to me to offer appropriate suggestions and comments.”

Even the most experienced business people need a little help…….we did!!
After 25 years in business, you would think that everything would be working smoothly. Unfortunately, like most small companies, we were working in our company when we should have been working on it. Trying to be a marketing guru, a technician and a manager is too difficult for two people and the fun part of business was disappearing. It’s simple really. A mechanic will service your car, a Doctor will heal when you are unwell and a Plumber will fix a leaky pipe. And a business coach will teach you how to make work fun, give you time to enjoy life and actually make a profit. Zed Morrey is our business coach and he has helped us to work towards becoming the best we can be.
Do yourself and your staff a favour; get a coach and get a life!
Zed Morrey can make a difference to your operation. He can help make a positive change and he’s a man of his word. When he says he’ll do something, he does it and he’s prompt and efficient. There are quantifiable measures—for example, motivation of staff, improved culture and delivery of service. The relationship I have with Zed is based on mutual respect and he responds to any need or concern I have.”
As a small business owner, it is always a risk to spend money on assisting yourself in your personal development, as you know that money can be spent in advertising etc. However, my investment in Zed paid off beautifully. I have always found Zed to be so easy to work with and really hones in on what my business needed. He gave me a couple of fabulous strategies that have made a truly positive impact on my business.
Thank you Zed!
