Client Testimonials

In working with SKCI our key goal was to raise investment for the company, Stephen has been critical to that project and we now have our first stage of funding in the bank. SKCI supported Turnkey during the investment process by reviewing corporate governance, managing the discussions with the potential investors and developing a valuation model for the business. Following this investment, we have asked Stephen to join the board of Turnkey where he is helping us to develop the business further.

 

 

Tony Wines

Founder & CEO, Turnkey Group

As CEO of a small but growing company, it is essential to have around you the experience needed to guide you through the risks and opportunities that you encounter. Stephen Kirk has been there for me, the Board and Management Team at The Planet Mark, mentoring us individually and providing vital additional expertise and resource for us to rapidly and safely grow the business.  It’s so important to have that support there, on tap. But his support goes beyond his direct experience, it is also his calmness and humour that makes the whole process productive, rewarding and enjoyable.  And that makes all the difference.

Steve Malkin

CEO, The Planet First
