I have over 15 years' experience at a senior level in a wide range of businesses, from family-run enterprises to large corporate businesses. Throughout this time I've led strategic business change, engaging staff and building new teams to drive growth in new and emerging markets and deliver service improvement and operating efficiencies. As a Business Doctor I have supported business owners across many sectors, all at different stages in their business. From start-up food retail businesses, to established PR & media companies, helping businesses capture and develop new export markets through to import and distribution businesses. The common theme across all is . . . taking a step back from the day to day business, gaining some headspace and spending time developing clear strategic plans for the future to fulfil your personal aspirations. We can all benefit from a bit of 'time out'. I'm accredited to a number of grant funding programmes to support start-up, development and growth, meaning I can take the hassle out of the funding process, so you can leave that bit to me. It's worth taking the time to review how your business is performing now and get some expert advice on how to hit the big time. So whether you are just starting out, looking to unlock next level growth or looking to establish a clear plan for succession or exit, get in touch today.
