Janine Pattison Studios (JPS) featured at Aspirin Business Solutions’ latest seminar and shared their novel approach to running a business which attracts and retains both high-quality clients and a powerful, cohesive team.

With a unique combination of humour and creativity, Janine, Denise and their team of vibrant garden and landscape designers not only treated guests to popcorn, but also an exclusive behind-the-scenes film-inspired insight into this successful high growth business, which is driven by innovation.

With a clientele that includes heads of global businesses, premier league footballers and TV celebrities, JPS are renowned for their highly creative and stylish landscapes. Their projects range from cutting-edge contemporary gardens in and around the Sandbanks area (including a rather unique Huf Haus) to country estates in the New Forest.

They attribute their success, in part, to Aspirin Business Solutions who are co-creators of their growth strategy and talent development. In addition to JPS, Aspirin Business Solutions’ clients include owner-managed, often technical, businesses throughout Dorset and nationally they include both John Lewis and Waitrose.

Denise Wright, Managing Director at JPS, says, “Our work with Aspirin over the past five years has all been about consolidating our personal ethos about owning and running a business. A great team brings with it, besides great energy and happiness, a roster of great clients. Sue, Heath and everyone at Aspirin have played a central role in helping us to embed that philosophy into the culture of JPS”.

As well as being a mlakeside-1ulti-award winning practice that attracts high calibre clients, JPS have created a tremendously talented & proactive team.

To achieve this, they’ve developed a refreshing & challenging approach to recruitment, established the JPS Academy for ongoing training and fostered a culture of respect and trust, alongside creativity and professionalism. For instance, team members were given the opportunity to manage the day-to-day business of JPS, which has provided a fantastic opportunity to develop their management skills and experience.

Managing Director of Aspirin Business Solutions, Susannah Brade-Waring, says, “Working with JPS is always a pleasure. They certainly push the boundaries of tried and tested methods of management and, as a result, are achieving profitable high growth with a team that inspired all the attendees at our seminar”


The next Aspirin Business event is a workshop on Motivation and Engagement on 18 November.
