Mark Collins was engaged as part of the design, build, finance and maintain Public Private Partnership of the new maximum security facility at Auckland Prison. While the key focus was around the Cook Chill kitchen, input was also provided regarding the planning of a future training kitchen, a staff cafeteria, and a prison run coffee/food counter. Mark was always customer focused and was able to meet all deadlines. I have recommended Mark as a Hospitality Advisor to a number of others as part of their design process linked to Cook/Chill kitchens and the Hospitality area. As part of future work that I may be involved in with the Department I look forward to working with Mark in the future.
We asked Mark to help us with our marketing. We have an aversion to big city consultants, but Mark was far from that. Mark is highly professional and very personable. He is a very likable guy with tons of experience in hospitality. We were very satisfied with Mark’s work. He visited our restaurant, visited our competitors, talked with our key staff, and developed for us a marketing strategy and plan for the next twelve months. There is heaps of work for us to do, and we have really appreciated Mark’s work.
We started working with Mark nine months into our first business. We reached out because although everything seemed to be going well, we lacked the perspective to know whether we were doing the right things to build a successful business. Mark helped us in many ways. He provided lots of encouragement and reassurance, while prompting us to see our business from different perspectives, think outside the box in terms of growing sales and marketing, and helping us to clarify our brand vision. His services exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend him.
I have worked with Mark on numerous projects, and always found him to be very strategic – and he always delivers outstanding outcomes. Mark is a thorough professional, and a great person to be associated with. Mark would be a real asset for any business he is associated with.
At the early stages of our business development we enlisted Mark to guide us in the right direction. We have enjoyed massive growth and have multiple sites, and income channels and without his extensive knowledge and guidance we wouldn’t be where we are today. He is encouraging, engaged and genuinely cares about our success. Although we don’t like to share, he is an incredible asset to any developing company!!
Mark Collins has been pivotal in the re-positioning of our business post Covid 19 lock-down. He has helped us identify our niche market and in turning our weaknesses into opportunities. We found him easy to work with and would recommend him to anyone seeking to grow their business.
One of Mark’s strengths is his ability to really challenge you and push your limits. He’ll hold you accountable to taking action, even in areas you may not necessarily enjoy or feel particularly good at. He helps you develop your weak points and you can always count on him for an honest, upfront and unique approach to problem-solving.
When COVID-19 struck and turned our world around, we needed someone who had the experience of surviving other downturns to help make us a plan. Mark made us think differently about how we looked at our business. He also taught us how to enjoy our business more than we used too which has been crucial to our growth. I would definitely recommend Mark’s company to help you focus and prioritise what is really important, reset your direction to help you and your business succeed. He is a person with a generous heart and the conviction that hard work and results deliver happiness.
