Gavin Henson keeping spirits up in Wales…

The former Wales rugby star has done his bit to keep spirits high in what are difficult times.

Gavin Henson delivers pints of beer to a local:

Gavin Henson recently hit the headlines after it was announced that he and his wife had opened up a new restaurant.

The former Wales international and his partner Katie are the new proud owners of The Fox in St Brides Major in the Vale of Glamorgan.

But as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, it is one of many thousands of businesses set to feel the pinch in the coming weeks and months.

However, the current pandemic has not stopped Henson from winning the hearts of his new locals.

With the government calling on pubs and restaurants to close after Friday in a bid to contain the Covid-19 spread, Henson’s former region Ospreys revealed they were donating £58,000 worth of kit to cash-strapped clubs in the local area after it was confirmed that the 2019/20 season had been cancelled.

And Henson made a typically brilliant goodwill gesture of his own by personally delivering pints of beer from his new pub.

Writing on Twitter, NHS worker Richard Johnson revealed details of the delivery.

He said: “Thanks to @KatieHenson89 and @gavinhenson82 from @TheFoxStBridesM for the takeaway service tonight.

“Avoiding the crowds #socialresponsibility #FlattenTheCurve #supportthenhs #supportsmallbusiness.”

And Henson duly responded via his official Twitter account.

He said: “No problem doc! Sorry about the spillage, I blame the cattle grid! Enjoy.”

The stone pub has undergone a complete overhaul since being purchased by the former Wales rugby international.

It reopened in February and has a restaurant that offers fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere as well as a bar area where locals can watch the biggest sporting events on a large screen.

Business may be limited for the foreseeable future, but Henson is still proving why he is loved so much by so many.

Proof that Gavin Preston can help you to double your business…

As the Gavin Preston team sat down for their months review, they had good news to share with Jane and George…

“You’ve done it! 

I’ve just finished the numbers and I’m delighted to tell you your business has not only grown, it’s doubled since we started to work together. 

AND it’s only taken you 11 months!”

You should have seen the look on their faces (and mine to be honest).

The sheer delight and sense of pride was palpable!

Yet, it all started less than a year before, when an overworked and frankly demoralised couple called me to ask for help. 

Jane and George had taken over a business his mother had set up 20 years previously and in the two years they’d been running it, they’d hit absolute rock bottom. 

The poor things were working six days a week (starting at 3 am and often only finishing at gone 9 at night). 

The staff were demotivated and obstructive, with very low morale. 

Customers were continually complaining and causing trouble. 

The business was barely breaking even. In fact, it lost money almost every month.

George was particularly worried about Jane.

She had dark grey bags beneath her eyes, was utterly exhausted from months of struggle and disappointment. She was completely worn out and it was beginning to affect hear health.

George wasn’t much better, though together they just soldiered on.

However 

Together, they had a dream.

They knew deep in their hearts their business had potential. If only they could take the right actions to bring it out. 

They wanted to create employment opportunities for local people – as the business was in a close-knit rural area. 

They had great products and they wanted to exploit its WOW factor. 

They desperately wanted to give their children a great start in life and provide them with the best education possible. 

What’s more, they had total clarity on what they wanted to achieve.

So… 

Over the next few months we devised a thorough plan of how we could overhaul staff issues, streamline production and sales, boost customer satisfaction to create regular repeat business and most importantly significantly increase profits and personal income.

The result, in under 12 months, Jane and George have a happy and motivated team dedicated to the business. 

They regularly take time out and family holidays together.

The children are receiving the education their parents had dreamed they could have.

Jane and George are happy, excited, more relaxed and now highly rewarded.

AND… 

The business has doubled in turnover and profits. 

But that’s not all
We continued to work together. Jane and George have gone on to double their business not once, but twice again

AND, we’re currently working to do this for a FOURTH time 

Now, you may be wondering… 

What’s the secret?

Are Jane and George exceptional super-humans?

Well, frankly, no. They’re not! They’re just like you.

But they have done a few things differently to most people.

First they’ve used just a few of my strategies and then gone and taken fast, effective and meaningful action.

And to help you do the same I have set up two Double Your Business Business Training Workshops in Bristol and Cardiff for November & December.

To register on to one of our next two Double Your Business Events, in either Bristol or Cardiff in order to find out how this business growth can be achieved, please click the link to the business growth event that’s in the area best for you!

   Cardiff Business Event in December – Double Your Business
Bristol Business Event in November – Double Your Business  

P.S. Important: This proves you can double your business and repeat that success with just two things. The right mind-set and the right tools.

Best wishes
