Testimonials for Jed Hassid

  • Simon Tasker - General Manager - ReAgent Chemicals

    Jed joined the team at Reagent as a business consultant, delivering part of the Growth Accelerator program. Jed was a fantastic session leader during the process,bringing new ideas and structure to our business planning activity. Continuously encouraging us to stretch our targets and aims, Jed was instrumental in building a vision for ReAgent to work towards in the future with a focused understanding of the business aims. I would not hesitate to recommend Jed to anyone in the future, in either a permanent or consultancy role. Thanks for all your help Jed.

  • Alison Loveday - Managing Partner - Berg

    Jed picked up my firm part way through a coaching/consultancy programme. He rapidly “got up to speed” and gained a clear and insightful view of our business. His background in professional services meant that he had a good understanding of some of the issues and challenges that we need to tackle. He encouraged us to look at alternative points of view, helped us to prioritise key drivers and to identify measurable targets. All of the sessions that we had with Jed were valuable and helped move us further along towards our goals.

  • MD - South Wales based engineering business

    Thank you so much for your guidance. I very much appreciate your help.

  • MD - Cheshire agricultural products sales

    Jed Hassid of Purple Performance has supported the high growth plans for my business since we were first introduced two years ago. We clicked immediately and his support has been invaluable in taking my business to the next level.

    Prior to meeting Jed, I had found myself at a crossroads and, although I had spent many years building my business, I lacked direction as to where to go next. Jed provided that direction through the creation of a 3 year growth plan which focused on setting ambitious business goals and then providing the support necessary to achieve them. This included a review of product range, improved systems and service delivery, recruiting and motivating staff (which with Lis Bellamy of Purple Performance also assisted) and key account management; we are now looking forward to the next 18 months and beyond.

    I cannot recommend Jed highly enough. Thanks to his dedication knowledge and support my business is in a great position to grow at an accelerated rate; exciting times are ahead.

  • Business Director - Manchester

    For the last two and a half years we have engaged Purple Performance to provide ongoing support for our recruitment business. Jed has been instrumental in shaping our strategy and, more importantly for an SME, has had a direct impact on our bottom line.

    Jed’s key strength is the fact that he doesn’t come from a recruitment background and as such has brought an innovative approach coupled with new refreshing ideas to the table and not the same re-hashed anecdotes that we have on occasion been subjected to.

    He will challenge without question the status quo, he will create an environment that encourages creative thought.

    Jed’s frank style has been an important aspect of why I believe Jed has been so important to our business. It is fair to say that he exudes credibility, which seems to be lacking in many of his peers  – I would firmly recommend Purple Performance without hesitation
