'Evanna Project Solutions immediately identified the gaps in our business model. They helped us to refocus the direction of our business, design and implement a cost rationalisation programme and to stabilise and grow our revenue stream through new channels. In a highly competitive industry we have and continue to benefit from the Management, Leadership and Communications skills available from John and his team'

´Evanna Project Solutions provided me with unique insights which have been invaluable in helping me to manage and grow my business more effectively. John´s ability to think ´outside the box´ and develop a solution driven model has provided Ozkleen with a third eye not previously available and which is now a key asset to the business. I highly recommend Evanna to any SME wishing to improve their performance and to gain a commercial advantage.´
Mark Quinn, CEO Ozkleen, 2011
'From an emotional position where I was unable to reach any consensus approach with my Bank, I was experiencing increasing levels of stress and anxiety. Evanna constructed a communication programme that confronted the issues and articulated a solution based on facts rather than emotion. Evanna´s role as an advocate was welcomed by my Bank and gave a fresh start to the relationship. An exit strategy has now been agreed. Everyone should have an Evanna on their side.'
'John and Evanna simply took the discussion with NAMA and NAMA Banks in their stride. They have a natural capacity to disagree without being disagreeable and it created a platform for resolution rather than conflict. John removed much of the fear that went with the position I found myself in and his calm, logical approach was both comforting and reassuring. I have recommended Evanna to others in a similar position and the empathy and understanding that is a feature of Evann’s work remains their greatest strength.' Shane. 2011
I simply did not speak the language required to engage with my Bank in respect of the various portfolio of investment properties that I had acquired and which were now suffering from insufficient income and negative equity. It was so easy to borrow the money that no discussion was necessary but now I lacked the understanding to communicate a plan that was consistent with my circumstances and the Banks requirements. Evanna were able to bridge that gap seamlessly and with the interests of both parties in mind.
'We had an innovative idea but were uncertain of where to start and how to progress the plan. Evanna carried out a scoping assessment, facilitated an introduction with Enterprise Ireland, carried out a professional presentation and we are now moving forward with the help of that support funding. Evanna knew what the end game was and how to get us there. We are grateful for their insights, support and the advantage that they gave us in our project, and we are looking forward to their continued participation as we develop our project towards commercialisation'
