I have over 35 years of business experience, performing a wide variety of roles including Sales, Production, Marketing and Finance in a number of sectors particularly in consumer goods.
Additionally, I have worked as a Strategic Business Adviser for Business Link, helping business owners with advice and support during the economic downturn, and with Barclays Bank, as a Lending Manager.
I am also a Certified International Trade Adviser. Having started, grown and eventually sold a manufacturing business, I have first hand experience of the many challenges facing business owners, not least the challenge of identifying future growth opportunities when the day to day operational needs seem overwhelming.
As a Business Doctor, I am delighted to be able to use my accumulated business experience to help businesses, from start-up and early stage businesses looking for support to survive and thrive, to more mature businesses seeking new opportunities for growth.Its really not rocket science.
A good strategy, with the right finance and a willingness to implement the necessary changes, coupled with some external help from Business Doctors, Growth Accelerator, the Manufacturing Advisory Service and UK Trade and Investment will get YOUR business to where YOU want it to be!
