We engaged Simon Drum over an eighteen month period for our multisite berry operation. Simon looked at the strengths and weaknesses of our business and helped develop a strategic plan for us to implement. Simon drove the strategy by providing hands on and practical assistance and pushed the team to follow through with plans. Labour efficiencies were of a particular focus which saw us transform our production systems resulting in a productivity increase of 30 %. Working with Simon was money well spent!
