  • Steve is a great leader and someone that I reported to for several roles from Business Manager to Trading Controller; a great team builder, he is collaborative and inclusive - bringing the team with him. Steve is clear and challenging in his vision and strategy but rigorous about the day to day delivery of targets. He is a challenging and s...

  • “I found this GDPR workshop extremely useful and practically presented explaining exactly what is going to happen on the 25th May and how it will affect our businesses in a simple but constructive way. It has definitely given me something to think about, saved me a huge amount of research and supplied useful tips on how to start implementing...

  • “GDPR has been at the back of my mind and worrying me for a few months now. I had read so many things and listened to a couple of webinars and I was still none the wiser. However, following attendance of the workshop, I was able to understand it so much better and having that clarity means the work that needs to be done is so much more strai...

  • “Whilst I have been to a number of GDPR updates and workshops, I found Steve’s session clear, informative and easy going, yet professional.

Build the value in your business


Steve is a self-confessed business junkie.

"I just enjoy business," he says. "I love doing business, talking to people about business and I read all the business press in my spare time. It's what interests and motivates me".

With a strong commercial background in FMCG across the UK and Europe, Steve is highly experienced in general management, operations, supply chain, logistics and production. His sales and marketing pedigree is second to none, including multi-territory brand development, pricing and competitive intelligence.

Appointed to set up the UK operation of a German wine producer, Steve grew the business to 40m euros turnover within six years. Despite operating in a declining market, he was able to successfully introduce a new product range with a higher margin.

"Part of being a business junkie," he says, "is having my finger on the pulse. I can bring both intelligent, practical ideas and implementation strategy to small and medium sized businesses, operating as a hands on team member rather than a consultant.

"I am all too aware of the expression 'consultants steal your watch and then tell you the time'.

"This couldn't be further from my approach. As part of the Business Doctors network, I work with and alongside the owners of SMEs to help them to develop and grow their business. With me it's definitely not about telling: it's all about doing".

Steve offers a free 60 minute business health check for businesses interested in achieving their next level of growth. He can be contacted on 07774287640 or at steve.howard@businessdoctors.co.uk.
