Build & Grow Your Startup or SME

Why partner with me?

1. I practice what I preach.

Unlike most consultants, I actually run businesses of my own! Anything I share with you is something I’ve got first hand experience of, not just a theory!

2. My approach focuses on you, not just your business.

For many Startups and SMEs, failure arises when personal goals, objectives and strategies are not considered amongst individuals and business partners. I always start with individuals, because a business isn’t successful unless you love what you’ve built!

3. I only take on partnerships where I know I can deliver substantial value.

If I can’t give you what you need, I’ll try my best to point you in the direction of someone who can.

4. I’m candid, but highly empathetic.

Sometimes, the first step to progress is seeing the facts, and that often requires a level of candidness that some are not ready to hear. I have a reputation for being a great communicator and being able to put myself in the shoes of others- getting you over hurdles faster (if you’re ready!).

5. I can bring you a breadth and depth of first hand experience.

To give you a flavour, I’ve successfully…

  • Led large scale transformation programmes for some of the UK and Europe’s largest banks.
  • Led multi site, multi discipline Data, Analytics and Systems Development functions.
  • Run large business operations, including call centres, distribution centres and data processing teams.
  • Led financial services engagements and consultant teams for a Big 4 Consulting firm.
  • Delivered resource optimisation and Lean Sigma programmes.
  • Developed, delivered and launched new products and services.
  • Completed company integrations, exits and divestments.
  • Cultured high performing and highly engaged operational and technical teams.
  • Partnered with clients in professional services, technology and retail to stimulate substantial customer base and revenue growth.
  • Built a technology startup from the ground up.
  • Built and run a creative marketing and media business, and hold a degree in Architecture.
  • Completed various roles in retail, manfacturing and more.
  • And much, much more…

All of this is a useful guide to my experience, but potentially irrelevant to you. So let’s talk and see how I can best support you and your business.

What I can’t help with…

  • I cannot provide financial advice – I’m not qualified to do so.

  • If you’re searching for investment contacts or seed funding, you’re in the wrong place.

  • I can’t guarantee results. You could have a perfect business with great products and services, but even this is not a guarantee of success. In the end, the market talks, all you can do is complete thorough due diliegence and take manageable risks.

  • I can’t work for you. I partner with my clients, I don’t work for them. This maximises the value you get from our working relationship, as it removes any power dynamics.
