“I came to Rick & his team to understand how I can transform my business and his proposal was practical. Rick took me through a journey to understand the industry today and what the future could be and then plotted a roadmap for how I should approach in taking on this business. He provided a vision to grow the current segment with ideas and strategies for digital engagement too. The analysis provided was a clear vision of linear growth on the existing segment, the opportunity for exponential growth if we cover the white space of direct online retail buyer, his team then went on with developing an optimized web presence, in preparation to launch our e-Commerce and online sales engine.
