Wrighton Consulting

East Sussex

After 30 years in the hospitality and service sector, starting at entry-level, working my way through every management position culminating in 15 years as sales and marketing director and then commercial director for a company whose annual turnover was over £35m. I decided to return to consulting with the sole aim of helping new businesses and their owner's start-up and to help companies already trading develop and grow. I bring a wealth of skills, knowledge, strategies and contacts. It has been said I have an intuitive instinct when it comes to setting up and or transforming a business. From Hotels to Restaurants and Bars, through to Retail and Attractions, I can advise, assist and guide you to improve your business. I provide a broad range of services and solutions to help you facilitate the change needed in these challenging and for some sectors, uncertain trading environments. For new businesses I will listen, assess, develop and expand your business idea assessing these initial thoughts to ensure it has a sound commercial basis. If it has then from that, we will transform this idea into a clear and concise business proposition leading on to produce business plans, set out detailed budgets, forecasts and cash-flow projections. Numerous projects I have worked on have been self-funded by the owners. While others required significant financial backing either in the form of business mortgages or loans. The business plans and financial reports I produce have certainly helped that happen. Once finance, if needed, has been secured, I can then guide you through the remaining process, taking the initial plan through to reality. Existing businesses. For some it can often be internal issues that are suppressing profitability, while others it's not maximising revenue when they should, many companies need to review their costs base and discuss these with their with suppliers, and all companies should regularly review their operations and strategies to improve turnover. And more importantly, seek independent help in doing this. For most, at least one or two of these points will need attention if not all. Seeking and guidance is not a sign of weakness, ignoring issues that can often be resolved quickly, potentially putting you, your company and employees working future in jeopardy is. I will partner with my clients from start to finish, focusing on their needs, assessing their current operation while producing new ideas, developing effective strategies and procedures to improve revenue, while looking at costs and expenses to improve efficiency and increase profit. Now is the time, let me guide and assist you and either your new business idea or existing business to a happier, more secure future.

What do you love most about your job?

I have spent 30 years in this fascinating industry, and it's safe to say not a single day has been the same, I’ve worked for, at the time biggest hotel group in the world (Forte). For privately owned 5-star luxury hotels. Through to small independent hotels and hotel groups. I have laughed and cried and experienced every other possible emotion in-between.

Having been a consultant twice in the past only to be directly employed by the companies, I was helping. I decided yet again it was in this field I excelled at, and I am back to doing what I love full time.

I take all that I have learned, to help and advise companies old and new, and that is a huge privilege. Assisting existing businesses and their owners grow beyond their expectations is thrilling, don't get me wrong, it can also be extremely challenging.

I have also helped set up many new businesses up from Hotels, Restaurants, Bars, serviced Apartments through to retail outlets. Helping and guiding new business owner's take their initial thoughts and ideas and help them turn those into reality is a remarkably rewarding thing to do.

What inspired you to start your own business?

For the last 20 years of my career, I worked for a small independent group of businesses; it was during this time my passion for independently managed and run businesses really started to come in to focus.

In this day and age where big brands dominate the world so effectively, It gave me a tremendous sense of encouragement that despite the globalisation of everything and massive groups and chains. It became quite apparent that If managed and run correctly independent hotels, restaurants, shops and bars can not only do as well as the large chains but can actually trade at a higher level than them. One of my properties was and by quite some margin the busiest hotel in the City and for four Years achieved an annual occupancy of 95% just imagine that running at completely full capacity 95% of the time 365 days for four years

One of my job roles over the last 18 years was to source and carry out feasibility studies on prospective new properties, whether that would be businesses already operating or new builds. It became quite clear that I was able to assess extremely quickly any companies potential irrespective of current profit and or loss levels. Many significant decisions on expansion the company took were entirely based on my feasibility studies, and all were even more successful than my initial findings.

As the companies appetite for expansion slowed during the last five years or so, I also started advising friends and family on setting up their own new businesses and also advising other established business. And I realised that it was this, I wanted to do in the future and I now do this full time.

Why should our clients choose you?

Passion, drive, and determination, these words are what I have heard used to describe me the most in my working life. And that's what I would also bring to your business whether you are just starting, or have been running one for decades.
