Imagine running a business for over 10 years and going from strength to strength before being hit by obstacles that would threaten, not just the future success of the business, but it’s ability to keep going at all.

Imagine having to go day-to-day wondering whether or not today would be the last day you could keep the business operating. You might survive those challenges, but could you bring your business back to the way it was? Better yet, could you get it to the level that you always envisioned it to be?

Meet Kate Prior, Owner and Managing Director of Face2Face Recruitment, one of Canberra’s leading recruitment agencies.

After a series of events and setbacks, Kate was unsure how long she could keep her business running, let alone get it to the level she had always dreamed of. But with the help of The Entourage’s Elevate Advisory Program, Kate has:

• Increased her annual profit from $100,000 to $600,000 in just six months
• Won the Australian Small Business Champion 2019 Award for Recruitment Services;
• Was named a finalist in the Telstra Business Awards 2019
• And doubled her team of 11, which included hiring an Operations Manager to free up Kate’s time

“We’re now playing a bigger game. The business is bigger than ever. I’ve had to rewrite every process because the growth is just so monumental.”

Face2Face Recruitment Faces A Series Of Setbacks

Founded in February 2005, Face2Face Recruitment went from strength to strength, but that’s not been without its challenges. 

A series of events affected Kate’s business in 2010 and 2011, including federal and state elections as well as the Global Financial Crisis. During this time, she constantly questioned if the business could keep going. It even came to the point where Kate had to see her financial advisory every day to decide whether the business could continue operating.

While Face2Face Recruitment did eventually overcome these obstacles, Kate never quite got the business back to where it was or where she wanted it to be.

The Turning Point

Not wanting to give up on her business, Kate joined our Elevate Business Advisory program.

A meeting with our Founder and CEO, Jack Delosa, gave Kate the confidence to state her audacious goals out loud: she wanted to increase the business’ annual profit from $100,000 to $600,000 in a period of 12 months. 

“The Entourage gave me the tools that I needed to reinvent myself to be the persona that I needed to be to take and elevate the company to another couple of levels.”

Here are the incredible results that Kate has achieved:

• She has increased her annual profit from $100,000 to $600,000 in just six months
• Won the Australian Small Business Champion 2019 Award for Recruitment Services;
• Was named a finalist in the Telstra Business Awards 2019;
Doubled her team of 11, which included hiring an Operations Manager to free up her time;
• And on a personal note, Kate also credits The Entourage Community for giving her the space and confidence to open up, and freely talk about her personal and professional barriers.
