Biography

I have successfully run my own business consulting and coaching company since 2003, and I am well regarded in the consultancy world locally and regionally as an excellent business partner for anyone seeking to benefit from a powerful combination of objective insight and sound practical experience.

I am a business graduate who started out in the world of mechanical and production engineering, but who today possesses wide ranging business know-how and experience which spans a number of sectors.  This includes practical experience of actually managing, growing, and directing a truly diverse range of small businesses, as well as having worked within the larger and more corporate world. I'm a first class problem solver who possesses the ability to assimilate wide ranging information, and either adding strategic value to it, or simply applying it to helping solve more practical day to day challenges and difficulties, which can so often distort the dividing lines between working “on” or “in” the business.

I'm also a good listener who can bring objectivity, experience and a comprehensive tool kit of transferable skills and abilities to almost any business situation. As a consultant I have successfully assisted a large number of SME’s over the last 13 years to both his grow and to innovate. This included for example being designated as an ‘Enhanced Coach’ under the government’s last national flagship scheme for business support - ‘The Business Growth Service’ incorporating both Growth Accelerator and the Manufacturing Advisory Service.

Whatever the project or task I apply my trademark energy, enthusiasm, focus, and commitment to make a real difference; ensuring the businesses that I work with understand with great clarity where they are at right now strategically, and that they can get to where they are going to much more effectively and innovatively than they may have done otherwise.
