Mike is absolutely 100% trustworthy, professional and visionary business strategist. He worked with us to achieve our goals within the timescales set. Mikes biggest strength is listening. So many consultants give the answer without listening to the question. Mike was all about understanding we we wanted and more importantly, how we wanted to achieve it. I would unreservedly recommend Mikes services to any company look for sustainable growth. More...

I've known Mike for many years and he's always displayed exceptional knowledge and understanding specific to business strategies and team interpersonal skills.

Mike has a great ability to make you feel relaxed and visibly listens intently to what you're saying. This sounds trivial, but dedicated attention and understanding during communication is hard to find these days and this is what, in my opinion, makes Mike stand out from the crowd.

Mike is a superb business strategist, relationship manager and coach. He helped me understand the relationship between sales and marketing and the importance of close, open collaboration. I owe Mike a huge debt of thanks and I recommend him unreservedly. More...

I have worked with Mike for many years. He is a professional, strategic thinking, business manager and is able to build long term relationships with customers and other stakeholders by offering the best solutions and support. He never loses sight of short term results and knows how to create an enjoyable atmosphere to reach goals.
His customers can benefit from his great experience, market knowledge and large network. He will do whatever is needed to support your case and apart from his competences, Mike is a good listener and a great person to work with.

Mike’s expertese as a consultant is hugely impressive. His knowledge and experience allows him to objectively analyse business and find the areas lacking cohesion and direction.

Mike’s ability to leverage a workable solution to these issues and plan a commercially viable strategy are both beskoke and entrepreneurial.

Mike is an extremely valuable asset to any business seeking a viable consultative solution .

Q&A

Bringing the best bits from the world of Corporate Business to SME business owners and helping them to achieve both personal and business goals. Most business owners start a business due to a passion or skill for a particular business area. Business Owners very rarely have the business experience to grow the business once they have taken the very brave step to start out on their own. I like to help and watch a business owner succeed and achieve personal growth as well as business goals.

A desire to pass on information, skills and systems to other business owners. To help Business Managers avoid the pitfalls of running their own business or trying to achieve maximum growth where more cost efficiency is needed within a business.

I do not know if I can help grow or develop a strategy for a business owner until we have met and discussed their needs and desires. I offer a strategic, step by step process to achieve business targets and provide a guaranteed process to develop a long term business plan. A personalised service and a money back guarantee after 12 months.

Working with business owners to fully understand their current plans and future objectives, I develop key strategies to allow the owner to grow and improve their business through tried and tested systems and processes. Taking examples from Corporate Business, I use business plan outlines, typical business plans and strategic business planning examples to show business owners how to start a new plan. I show SME owners how to make a business plan.

Through a comprehensive review of a company and its systems, I can utilise corporate management techniques to assist SME owners to better manage and understand their business and develop better and more robust processes.

In order to develop your team members a business owner must first understand his or her management style. By first reviewing the managers techniques and adjusting these accordingly, we can work on the development of the team. By reviewing staff responsibilities and skills, we can put together a comprehensive and individual development plan for each employee to enhance their skills and training and improve productivity and well being in the workplace.

Having worked in both manufacturing and services businesses at both corporate and hands on management levels, reviews of systems, processes, logistics and the supply chain are essential to the efficiency and reputation of a company. Product recalls and service failures are examples of poor operations management. By engaging an operations management consultant and working closely with the business management to understand their systems and procedures, a business owner can develop a unique set of strategies and systems to ensure a robust and compliant operations management focus, that will help enhance a grow a business’s reputation for quality and reliability.

With years of supply chain experience within Corporate Management, I have the knowledge to be able to offer supply chain management help in order to educate and assist SME business owners in ensuring consistent and on time supply of components or services. This, together with improvements in supply chain management processes will increase profits, and strengthen supplier relations.

Understanding the end goal of any negotiation is important to the outcome. A contract should be fair to all parties and must be compliant. Giving business owners an understanding of contract negotiation techniques and contract negotiation strategies is one of the necessary steps to achieving a mutually beneficial and binding contract. With experience in negotiating corporate contracts, it is necessary to work through the phases of the negotiation process and I will be on hand to advise and consult throughout the process.

Reviewing past sales, future growth, market developments and competitor strategies will be the start of a comprehensive business review. The importance of business forecasting cannot be over stated and I work with the business owner and his management to deliver a business budget and forecasting process that works for the SME owner and the company.

A detailed cost analysis will help a business owner understand where cost is incurred and where savings can be made, without compromise to the business. By engaging with a business cost analysis consultant, an SME business owner will be better prepared to identify and manage the outgoings from the business and reduce cost in a stable and managed way. I work with the owner and their management teams to review all areas of cost within the business and create a cost benefit analysis model to improve efficiency and reduce cost, without loss of service or quality.
