Julian Lessons Business Doctor for Barnet

Julian Lessons
Barnet

At the tender age of 17, Julian started his first business, landscape gardening, in the suburbs of North London. Although successful, an accident led to a change of career so, in 1979, he started a food distribution business. With zero capital but with much hard work and strong determination to succeed, the business was built, as Julian himself says, ‘brick by brick and by learning through snakes and ladders.’ With no formal training in running a business, Julian decided to take the Cranfield University Business Growth programme which helped him grow the business until it employed 75 people and achieved a £25 million turnover.

Wicus Van Biljon Cut Out 2

Wicus Van Biljon
Fife

I’m well aware of the challenges that face small to medium-sized businesses today, and what it’s like to be caught in the owner’s trap – when you spend far too much time working IN the business rather than ON the business.

Originally hailing from South Africa and having navigated my way through many business journeys, I’ve gathered tools and techniques that can help business owners find their way through the various challenges, free up some much-needed personal time, help them sleep at night, reignite their passion and…GROW.
