  • I engaged in a simple, informal chat with Christian regarding a few IT and marketing queries I had within my business that I just couldn’t resolve completely on my own. That conversation prompted me to begin implementing subtle changes which would have a significant impact on the efficient running of my website. Overall, Christian’s ability to answer complex questions in a clear way, not full of jargon, allowed me to make connections and find solutions which otherwise I may not have thought of. Sometimes talking to an expert can confuse you even more but when you talk to the right expert you get exactly what you need. In this case, the latter is my experience with Christian at Quinlan Marketing.

  • “As a small business owner, it is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day running of the business, especially in a creative industry,” Caroline says. “Sara Young and Quinlan Consulting helped me to develop a clear structure and plan. They formed a firm understanding of my business and gave me advice on where I could make improvements. Sara was always available if I needed to contact her about anything.”

  • I think the VCCI Business Mentor program is the best initiative the state government has ever had having been in business for 21 years!!

    Our partnering with Quinlan Consulting was a perfect fit. We have been able to take on board suggestions and strategies to strengthen and improve our business into the future. It has also been pivotal in inspiring us through COVID 19 by looking with fresh eyes at our team and better ways we can all contribute and have a happy and healthy work environment.

    Looking forward to working with you guys well into the future!

  • Eye-watering, sobering advice driving my organisation to a whole different level. Tom’s ability to disect a balance sheet, pinpoint the levers for growth and to get a rattled business owner on track for greatness are unparalleled. Ignore him and his awesome team at your peril. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how comprehensive these guys are!

  • I was lucky enough to come into contact with Quinlan Consulting Team through the VCCI business mentoring program.  They offer such a broad range of services and I was pleasantly surprised how much we got out of 8 hours across different areas to help with sales, marketing and navigating Covid as a small business.  As a photographer, I know how to get the images just right; Quinlan Consulting knows how to research, advise and produce material to advertise your services and then market it to the public as a small business.  They are across accounting, performance and marketing.

    Initially Tom and Christian assessed my business in depth which involved a lot of research and a report was written.  From there some strategies were devised and plans created for the future. Sara and her team transformed my promotional material into a compelling story about my business that encourages people to see what sets me apart from my competitors. The final product was 100% better than the material I gave her at the start. Her feedback was helpful and always on-point. I will definitely be using

    Quinlan Consulting services again and feel very lucky to have been involved in the VCCI mentoring session.

    Thank you guys

  • Thankyou. You’re the expert.

    This last couple days has seen a further influx of new jobs and clients. Quite remarkable what the right advice and action plan will do for you. Although I’m not the type to ask for assistance, I accept that I need it. So thankyou once again.
