Past Testimonials


This page contains the testimonials from Jean Cannon’s previous work as a business consultant and this shows the same level of commitment by Jean and the transformational effect on her clients

Our Integrated ISO system brought all our manuals under one umbrella and as an airline we had many manuals.  Management is now more aware of the issues involved and is more perceptive.

The staff are now “thinking twice and cutting once”.  They now have situational awareness and ask “what are the ramifications?”

I enjoyed the way Jean kept it simple and pulled me into line and showed me the weaker areas and I was very happy to consolidate what we had under one umbrella, ISO Management Manual.

When you analyse things the way you do in ISO you realise what hotchpotch you have and how many assumptions.  You can’t make assumptions.  The aeroplane business is as complex as the health business

Jean Cannon was thorough and her pricing was very reasonable, always ontime & forthcoming….you can have every confidence in her until completion. As  further testament, Jean was shocked at the pre audit assessment of 5 items…..shocked as I was but for different reasons, Jean was  pleased with we only had 5 items, usually pre – audit assessments have a lot more finessing before she classes you ‘ready for audit’….ring me if you would like to talk about ISO & Jean Cannon.

“Jean has the ability to transform companies.  She tells it like it is and communicates very effectively”.

“Jean Cannon’s approach to ISO systems was straightforward and no bullshit.  She understands how industry works. This is the best effort I’ve seen at simplifying what some people have made an art of complicating.”

“It sounded like a big thing when we got started but it is so easy to do because of the way you have simplified it and we loved the online training because we only need to take around 50 minutes each week away from taking sales calls.”
Jean Kennedy, Turf Producers, Qld

“I enjoyed every minute of your course and all the modules. You made it all so easy and the fact that we are now ready to launch into accreditation makes it a really exciting time in our business.  We knew what we wanted to do but had no idea of how to get there until we found your website!!

We are a machining shop in a north west mining town and the last thing we needed was a load of bureaucratic bull dust!! So the fact that you could cut through all that and put in place a simple system that you led us through, week by week, to the goal of ISO accreditation.

It has been a really amazing time of change in our business and the increased awareness has benefited us all immensely, so many thanks Jean.”
Kyme Gandy, Administration Manager, PRD Engineering, Karratha WA

It has made me look at my business management differently. I have not added an extra layer of paper but done an overall clean out and review. It has been like a good desk tidy where I pull all my management practices together.

“Without the assistance plus guidance of Jean Cannon we would not have such a workable and user friendly system”.
Peter Taylor, General Manager, Adams Pest Control Pty Ltd

“I attempted to write a Quality Manual myself then tried to implement one of those “buy ISO in a box” packages and became quite intimidated by ISO 9001.

That is until I met Jean.  She broke it down into simple language and methods that I could follow easily. Her easy going nature and humorous examples and coaching style made me instantly at ease and her approach to training is wonderful.

Now the entire system is up and running and even better than that – I actually understand it and can use it to improve the business.   I would recommend Jean Cannon Consulting to anyone who is serious about implementing ISO9001.”
Tanith Parletta, Director, Fine Tech

“We found that we were falling down in our internal communication so we build this into our job-sheets to keep it simple and effective.  We have just gone for a big tender and the work we did with you was a big help in filling out the tender documents.  We have become much more professional.”
Kylie Robertson, Seeds Bushland, Victoria
