"I recently faced an incredibly stressful and complex HR issue that threatened not only the harmony of my team, but also the overall success of my business. Thankfully, I was fortunate enough to have Jonathan Keable from Business Success HR in my corner.

From the moment I reached out to Jonathan, he demonstrated a genuine commitment to helping me navigate the challenging situation I was in. As I'd already worked with Jonathan before, he already had my trust, but with his professional and empathetic approach, I was put at ease as we worked together to devise a plan of action.

Jonathan's knowledge of HR best practices was nothing short of incredible and one of the most remarkable aspects of working with him was his unwavering dedication to finding a solution that benefited everyone involved. Through his creative problem-solving skills and commitment to fairness, he was able to facilitate a successful resolution that exceeded my expectations.

Thanks to Jonathan's excellent service, my business was able to overcome this challenging HR issue, resulting in a stronger, more cohesive team and an even greater ability to achieve our goals.

In conclusion, Jonathan Keable's outstanding service and dedication played a pivotal role in transforming a highly stressful situation into a successful outcome for all involved. I am confident that any business owner who works with him will benefit greatly from his expertise, and I wholeheartedly endorse him as an exceptional HR professional."

Achieve significant improvement much faster

In the Beginning, for couple years, I tried building my business KFBM Contractors by myself. All documentation, valuations, invoices, hiring employees and much more without any experience, system etc. I looked for help online, Unfortunately, the results were not good enough, but I did not give up. I met with Jonathan Keable – Business Succes Marketing Ltd, who analyzed my business. They then established a foundation for my business, as well as deep business analysis. This helped me achieve significant improvement much faster. I can also manage projects more efficiently as well as moving on to larger projects sooner. I know this is only the beginning and I have a lot to learn. I know that business development is a constant process and elimination of weaknesses to achieve progress. Now I know that there is someone with great experience, knowledge and contacts who can help effectively. thank you very much to Jonathan Keable, for all the help. I will be using this service in the future. I recommend it very much - it's really worth it.

I trust their advice

As someone who has seen my business grow, but not sure what to do to take it to the next level, I am really impressed with the experience I had with Business Success Marketing. I found both Jonathan and Adrienna really easy to talk to and, following a consultation, can now clearly see the current strengths and needs of my business. They have helped clarify where I need to focus my attention and provided me with a list of actions which are all important to take my business forward. Most importantly I trust their advice and they clearly care about what they do while providing a bespoke service to bring out the best in each business they support. I highly recommend!

Outstanding HR Support

Jonathan Keable provided outstanding HR support for me over how to end a probationary contract. JK provided very clear and simple steps that have to happen. Sadly, this situation has escalated and escalated, now requiring police support. If JK hadn’t given this sound advice, as a company we could be facing an employee’s tribunal.

Alison Jenkins

I have no hesitation in recommending

For someone who is very much into facts and figures, when JK and Adrienna asked me what’s your USP, Brand Promise and Tagline, from my very quizzical look, I think they may have realised then that they were talking to someone who had no idea about any of these things.

Unfazed, they took the time to explain what each one was and more importantly for me, gave me advice on how to identify them. JK’s various stories really helped with this and their perseverance whilst I went through a number of ‘duds’ was very welcome.

In addition, JK’s wealth of business knowledge was very helpful in giving me ideas for my new business and how to scale it quickly.

I have no hesitation in recommending JK and Adrienna and offer my sincerest thanks for the advice, time and patience they have given me.

Ben Houston

Look no further

Trebled our turnover

At the stage that we were introduced to Jonathan Keable, we had been running our business for over 9 years with a directly employed team of 12 operatives.

We were turning over around £500k per annum, whilst barely generating any net profit.

I was generally working all of the hours that god sends to make a success of the business, and whilst we were gaining a great reputation for what we were doing, there was very little reward.

Jonathan has helped to transform our business in some of the following ways:-

Spending time planning, marketing and forecasting our business & setting realistic targets and goals,
Tracking and monitoring financial performance on a monthly basis to ensure we stay on the right track.
In the first year with Jonathan, we have doubled our turnover to £1 million and are halfway through our latest financial year whilst being on track to treble our turnover to £1.5 million. Whilst maintaining a healthy net profit. We are now firmly in the driving seat thanks to Jonathan, who provided us with the marketing, knowledge, and tools to make this happen.

Phil Rivers


Jonathan and Adrienna have amassed much experience over many years in helping businesses grow and improve their performance and are able to part with their knowledge in a clear and precise friendly manner. Thank you both.

Neil Hurst

Highly Recommended

After talking to a few people, I made a call to Jonathan and have to say that his instant grasp of the situation was refreshing. It was not a call where I was promised the Earth but rather one where I was asked what we could work together to achieve. It was at that point I decided this was the right decision for me.

The process from there was challenging, thought provoking and fun! I can honestly say I have never thought about my business or sector the way I do now. The chemistry between Adrienna and Jonathan was in equal parts disarmingly charming and laser focused on achieving results.

Their approach employed throughout the experience I believe has given me the tools to better understand the nature of my business as well as set growth goals and target specific markets.

This modern-day dynamic duo are clearly focused on increasing your understanding of your marketing to enable you to thrive going forward.

Highly Recommended!

I was fortunate to be amongst an enthralled audience at a recent business networking event when Business Success presented on the topic of social media marketing.

You’re never quite sure what to expect from these events, but I was very impressed by the two presenters (Jonathan and Adrienna) who were engaging and insightful, understanding that their audience was drawn from a wide range of backgrounds, with varying degrees of pre-existing knowledge and market relevance.

Talking to such a diverse group could have presented problems – but the presentation was excellent and very well-constructed, ensuring that all present walked away with either new knowledge, or new impetus to put the marketing lessons of the day into practice.

On a personal level, my prior marketing and social media knowledge base has been finessed and enhanced and I made immediate use of some of the tips that Adrienna dispensed.

Every day is a Learning Day – all the more in this case.

Highly recommended.
