David BrassardSerge Coulombe offered Groupe BBC support within the framework of a strategic plan that involved myself and two of my associates. We were concerned about the evolution of the residential construction sector, and wanted a plan that would allow us to diversify and remain profitable. This is exactly what Serge helped us do. By respecting the culture of our company, he easily steered us toward a common vision and concrete action. Thanks to his outstanding work, we now have a much clearer idea of where we are going. In addition to sharing his extensive management experience and sharp vision of the market, this high-level professional was able to ensure that our growth plan respected our culture as well as our financial and human capacities. Serge is not there to tell us what we want to hear, nor write a report that will gather dust on a shelf. Rather, he wants to help us develop our management skills so that our company performs better. Serge is one of those rare consultants who does not just say his clients are his priority: he means it. By remaining available, respectful and committed to his clients, Serge proves at every meeting that the people in front of him are those who count. We are convinced that Serge is a driver of success for our company, and we would not hesitate to use his services for future projects.

Jean-François LavoieFor two years, Brocheuses Montréal had been looking, unsuccessfully, for a way to increase its sales volume in order to increase its return on investment. Having run out of ideas, we decided to seek help. That is why we called on Serge.
The mandate was to develop strategies to boost our company’s sales volume and ensure the business could be successfully handed over to the next generation. From the beginning, Serge let us know that if we wanted to succeed, we had to start from a solid base. He discovered our financial information was incorrect and advised us to put it in order. With Serge’s help, we planned our first budget and control measures. It was a revelation for us. More important, he taught us how to focus on profitability.
With his help and valuable advice, we developed a five-year growth strategy. At the end of this exercise, we had a clearer vision of the future and greater confidence in our ability to succeed. The impact of implementing these first actions of our plan were absolutely impressive:

  • Record sales
  • Increased profit margin
  • Useful and reliable financial information
  • Controlled expenses

As the results came in, we immediately asked Serge to continue helping us implement our strategies. With him as our strategist, we made an acquisition, increased our sales force and set up a management committee. Today, we face our future with confidence. Stimulating and strategic opportunities have been identified and they should support our growth over the next few years. All of this would probably not have been possible if Serge hadn’t crossed our path. He taught us how to fly and now we are ready to soar! On a personal level, I have evolved as a manager and feel ready to take over the company.
It is therefore without hesitation that I strongly recommend Serge Coulombe to those who need the help of a true professional who possesses an excellent vision of business.

Thank you, Serge!

David CeausuAfter being dissatisfied with the performance of my business given its potential, I met Serge two years ago in order to uncover the reasons and identify solutions for improvement.
Thanks to his professional manner and experience, I very quickly realized that Serge understood my business unlike any consultant I had ever met before.
Serge presented a clear and concise diagnosis to us in a very clear manner: the issues, their causes and their solutions. This first step gave me the momentum to change.
In addition to his excellent analytical capacity, Serge is a patient and inspiring guide and coach. At each step of our transformation over the past two years, he has offered advice that has been very useful and effective.
Serge is a high-level consultant we can rely on. Thanks to his professionalism and dedication, we turned stagnation into profitable growth.
I have already recommended Serge to colleagues and friends, and I would enthusiastically recommend Serge to any entrepreneur seeking to reach new heights.

Sincerely,
