People say the nicest things

Right from the get-go, Oliver’s enthusiasm to hit the ground running was second to none. This genuine and authentic care Oliver has for other people’s welfare, was soon manifested into his relationship building with new prospects. Oliver came into a very challenging role here at HWC; as a result, he was often working on his own and had to use his own initiative a lot of the time. Yet nothing phased him and he seemed to almost relish this opportunity to make a difference. Which he did. In a challenging industry and service area, he managed to create important strategic relationships with many FTSE 100 contacts in a relatively short time period.

Oliver is one of the nicest, friendliest and hard working people I have met. You would never hear anyone say a bad work about Oliver, because he just puts everyone else first and is genuinely interested in them and how he can help them.

Chris Burke, Partner, The Spectrum IFA Group., Barcelona

His commitment to his team, bringing out the best in everyone, and professionalism is contagious. His unique style of management has resulted in success, and gained him the respect he rightly deserves. Oliver is focused, determined and commited with endless enthusiasm.

The specific training modules we worked on were incredibly helpful. We always knew that a few pointers and some killer lines and questioning techniques were all we needed. Turns out we were right. The results were remarkable. The guys at Monkey's Paw were patient and genuinely helpful with a sincere desire to get us to our next level.

Rob Lindsay, Managing Director, Ramp Audio Ltd., Exeter

The whole approach worked for us. The one to one nature of the training and the short sessions in which it was delivered. Then taking it out to the market and trying out what we'd learned. The debriefs and follow-ups were really informative, relaxed and light hearted. Exactly as we like to work ourselves. We now have an ongoing training strategy moving forward with Monkey's Paw. Confidence, technique and results have all improved. It just works.

MONKEY’S PAW was created by Oliver Dax.

Oliver’s background has been in Business Development stretching back to 1990. In a wide variety of sectors and an even wider variety of territories. From setting up distributors in 13 different countries from Iceland to Romania for a large construction business, to developing a thriving offshore investment office on the Costa Blanca following two years in Barcelona building a lucrative client database of both private and corporate clients.

After returning to the UK, Oliver worked with such established organisations as Yell, BT, Rightmove, eventually returning to Devon to work with an independent software business, helping open the doors to a number of FTSE 100 companies including Tesco, Burberry, HSBC, British Airways and BSkyB.

With over 27 years of experience of Business Development, Oliver decided to create a new Business Development Training Consultancy that not only offered genuinely helpful guidance for B2B businesses, but one that did not walk away from the client just as the help was needed the most.
