What my clients say

“After using XYZ & Co and recieving little support Jean and Graeme are a breath of fresh air”

Nicola Potter

“Thankyou both so much for all the help and support you have shown me - bringing me back to 'life'...there aren't sufficient words to encapsulate how I feel about this 'journey' we have been on together.  You are truly special people!”


“We’ve worked with Graeme and Jean Lawson at AIMS for Business for over six years and during this period they’ve added immeasurable value to the company. They’ve also guided us on a number of critical business decisions that we’ve had to make over the years, enabling us to reach objective and informed conclusions. Their personable approach, combined with their ability to really understand what we do here at HFE has been invaluable. I certainly don’t think we’d have handled the growth that we have without their services. I cannot recommend them enough.”
