Somerton Physiotherapy first engaged Ciaran McKenna from WoodHazel Consulting back in October 2019. Ciaran’s brief was to provide sales and development training to four staff members.

The main goal of this training focused around “Developing a 10 year+ client”. In other words, someone who comes to the clinic, has a positive experience and becomes a lifelong client.

Over the past six months Ciaran has worked diligently with all staff members to achieve this goal. He has carried out numerous 1-2-1 meetings and development centres with all employees, providing effective personal training and development. He has set goals and targets throughout the process. Selling isn’t something that comes naturally to medical professionals, but Ciaran was able to break down these barriers.

Over the past few months, I have noticed an increase in confidence in team members around selling their skills and our services. This in turn has led to an increase in clinic revenue. I have also witnessed an increased togetherness within our team – especially evident over the past few weeks.

At all times Ciaran has been courteous, professional and easy to contact. He always goes the extra mile for others. If you or your team would like to improve your confidence around sales and/or selling your services I would highly recommend that you engage Ciaran McKenna from WoodHazel Consulting.

I have worked with Ciaran for over 12 years, and I have always found him to be a benefit to our company Sammin Engineering. Sammin Engineering has worked with him from his Electrical wholesaling days, and worked closely with him as partners for his Zip franchise.

We have also looked at developing new products and markets together and will continue into the future. Our business has grown significantly in the last ten years and it has been with partners like Ciaran that we have been able to diversify and gain profitable contracts and new streams of income. I have always found Ciaran to be honest, trustworthy and an asset to our company. We look forward to doing business with Rachel and Ciaran, now and in the future with Woodhazel, and would be happy to recommend others to do the same.” Paul Sammin- Owner Sammin Engineering.

We at Wicklow stoves and the Hire and lawn mower shop have dealt with Ciaran Mc Kenna for nearly eight years. In that time we have done very profitable and successful business together.

We have always found him to be professional, honest, courteous, friendly and an asset to our business.

We look forward to doing business now and in the future with him as part of Woodhazel because as well as trading we have valued the listening ear, the advice, and good honest opinions delivered in a fresh, enthusiastic manner. We are happy to recommend Ciaran, Rachel and Woodhazel consulting to others.

We at Inis Stoves began working with Ciaran in 2009. We had just founded a stove manufacturing company and we needed to quickly establish ourselves in the stove market on the island of Ireland with a view to entering the UK market within three years.

Ciaran was invaluable for us at Inis Stoves creating a national network of dealerships with over forty customers and his advice and guidance in rolling out a national network of customers from zero with a sustainable sales and marketing model, at an early stage in the business where funding and available staff were all at a premium. We gave Ciaran a very challenging operating environment and we were delighted in his uniquely “can do” approach to the challenge.

We have found Ciaran to be positive, insightful honest and an inspiration to any company requiring the unlocking of the “magical art” of sales and creating a market place of value for the business.

I look forward to new opportunities and cooperation with Ciaran and Woodhazel into the future.

I met Ciaran back in 2010, I found to him to be an extremely positive and knowledgeable person. If I needed any advice Ciaran would always listen and come up with a solution.

If you are looking to grow your business or would like guidance I would recommend Ciaran and his team in WoodHazel.
