The ZeitgeistRyan Hall, AuthorProfessionalism, pragmatism and authority with huge depth of knowledge
Read More
I've worked with DropJaw for over a year now, sharing a Board level engagement for over year now and it's been brilliant.

Having worked closely with Roy and more recently Mark, they have brought a level of professionalism, pragmatism and authority within their specialism that can be hard to find. Especially when backed up with such in-depth of knowledge and skill.

I hope to work closely with DropJaw on other initiatives in the future.

We were introduced to Roy through Aston Business School's Productivity through People programme. He has helped us to formulate a strategy for turning the academic learning and reflection of that programme into a practical day-to-day initiative to drive productivity growth in our business. His approach has been refreshingly straightforward and yet profound, and by involving everyone in the company, it can only boost team engagement. We are now "go" for our Project Infinity. Thanks Roy for all your help (hope you like the name!)

I can honestly say it was one of the most worthwhile coffee meetings I have had. Roy understands the finance market better than most and can identify the appropriate finance needed for a growing business whether that be debt or equity at whatever stage in the growth journey the business is in. Roy also gives valuable support to his clients and from my understanding gives that full rounded offer of advice and guidance to many businesses across the whole of the Northern Powerhouse. Great guy and I look forward to working with Roy more in the future.

I've worked with DropJaw over the past couple of months on a couple of very specific objectives, and every step of the way I've received the guidance and answers I've required in order to achieve what we set out to together. At this stage of the journey, we've nearly hit every goal we set out to - and I'm looking forward to the coming couple of months, where I am confident we'll continue to do the same.

I first met Roy when I was completing the Aston Business School small business growth course and he was assigned to me as my mentor.
I had a company vision but had no idea how to make those visions a reality – Roy helped with that.
He gave me the encouragement I needed to take on new challenges, look to significant market growth and introduced me to lots of now, new clients I would’ve never have had the opportunity to have met otherwise.
He firmly restored my self-belief, boosted my confidence and made me look to the bigger picture and I am truly grateful.

Roy’s experience in scaling up companies alongside his funding knowledge, has been an asset to company and is actively accelerating our growth.

Dropjaw bring a different skillset to the table and complement our strengths. Roy’s involvement in a non-executive director role not only provides a sounding board for our business but will strategically assist in our growth plans.

We have very ambitious growth plans and we are excited about our business journey.
