I partner with entrepreneurs and business managers to help them build, change and run their business. Whether by providing advice, guidance and mentoring or by getting stuck into the detail to make things happen, the focus is on developing a relationship and become a trusted adviser. Becoming a non-executive director may also be an option.
BUILD your business – Turning your ideas into reality: business models & plans; funding proposals; feasibility reviews
CHANGE your business – Going in a new direction: strategic reviews; growth planning; process reviews; project change management
RUN your business – Taking on the day-to-day/On-call COO: ad hoc operational tasks; governance, risk & controls; policies & procedures; expense & management reporting; financial analysis; hiring and staffing
Originally a Chartered Accountant, I followed this with 20 years in Finance, Operations and Risk at investment banks, primarily in London with stints in Asia and New York. A few years ago I swapped the corporate world for the business management services.

In simple terms, we combine various sciences, research, assessments, real life solutions, and training to support business leaders in making informed decisions about technology selection and application, implementing change successfully, and solving business management problems.
Informed decisions save clients the time and money spent ‘going it alone’ and making costly mistakes.
Informed decisions increase our clients’ revenue, customer base, and customer value as a result of the development of a stronger competitive advantage.
