Summary – The benefits of working with me:
- My Business experience- Whatever your issues are, chances are I have been there and done it in a number of different businesses. The issues and solutions that businesses face are surprisingly similar and will almost always apply in your case.
- You get access to my network and private resources when we work together.
- I don’t work with just anybody. My reputation and integrity is also on the line with every project I accept. I only work with CEO’s and Business owners I really believe have growth opportunities in their business that I can help them to unlock, and that are ambitious to grow their business, and are prepared to make a commitment up-front to implement the strategy we agree together, in the time-frame we set and will commit to scheduled monthly review meetings
- I only work with CEO’s and Business owners I really believe are open to coaching and working as a team with me and their key management to achieve the right outcome, and having fun in the process.
- If the strategy we agree requires an additional cash injection, I can work with you to develop a business plan even help you to present it to your bank and/or finance providers/ Venture capital companies.
Where I can add most value is in medium sized businesses (large companies have too much red tape and are slow to react and make changes) , keen to grow but not exactly clear how; but open to exploring opportunities they may not have even considered, and importantly are committed to move forward as soon as we have agreed a strategy and plan (Otherwise the momentum we will have generated will probably be lost as day to day business activities and issues once again take a larger share of your mind and time).
