  • Andy brings a real sense of simplicity and calm to our every day work life. With his Whole PIE System and way of thinking it really breaks things down in bite-size pieces and makes it easy to understand and to form a plan giving business owners a lot of great traction to help grow and move forward. I see myself and my company The GJV Group working with Andy for a very long time.

  • One of the biggest outcomes of working with Andy and implementing the Whole PIE System into my business was how setting big goals around the impact I wanted to make with my business ended up being the catalyst to achieving more sales and profit growth. I didn’t see that coming, but was happy it did!

  • Working with Andy has helped me to achieve growth in my business and to be more structured in my day to day focus. I have implemented many of the tools from the Whole PIE System and using the Key Data Tracker on a weekly basis has made me more accountable and as a result I have my fingers on the pulse of my business. This has contributed to helping me achieve many of my goals both professionally and personally! Thank you Andy!

  • As the Director of Operations for a successful hockey academy in Fredericton, NB I had the privilege of working with Andy Clark while our business was expanding. There were many unanswered questions that were on the table that my partners and I needed direction with, and Andy certainly did not disappoint. His timely responses, professional demeanour and courteous interactions with my team made what could have been a very difficult endeavour seamless. I would highly recommend his services to anyone searching for a combination of quality and excellence.

  • Since we implemented elements of the Whole PIE System into our business, we are on track to have our best year ever. The System not only helped us establish the key objectives and metrics for our family business, it helped us set up an accountability structure that forces us to stay focused and on track. I recommend Clarkie Consulting and the Whole PIE System to any small business looking to grow.

  • Working with Clarkie Consulting was awesome.  Our team learned a ton, we developed some great materials for our marketing package and ultimately that has led to new business, with higher paying clients, I don’t feel we could have secured otherwise!

    The Whole PIE System helped us establish goals, key priorities, and action steps that align with our company’s purpose and core values. It also helped us implement the data-driven accountability structure we needed to keep us focused and on track to reaching our goals. Andy knows his stuff. We look forward to working with Andy and Clarkie Consulting as we continue to grow our business.

    Andy provided business consulting services and helped me create our company’s Purpose and Vision Statements, as well as our Core Values and Operating Principles. I enjoyed how Andy challenged me when needed and asked questions to bring more content into the discussions. He has all the tools and experience needed to help a business owner walk through an area of their business that they have never done before. I am very pleased with the outcome from this project and I am excited to work with him again in the future.

  • Andy worked with me to develop a strategic plan for my business. I've done strategic planning (on my own or with a consultant) many times during the 17 years I've owned my own company, but I've never been happy with the results. Andy helped me dig deep to uncover a vision, purpose and core values for the company that I finally feel good about. I love that the plan he helped me create is realistic and measurable, but it also focuses on more than just profit goals. The plan also captures community impact and my enjoyment, which are so important to long-term fulfillment and success.
