Seeing clients' businesses (and lives) improve. There's no more rewarding feeling than enabling someone for rapid success.

I've worked in business for over 30 years, have researched businesses for over 15 years and have unearthed some vital - and tough - lessons along the way. I've had businesses earn me over £200k a year...and some that went nowhere. Sharing these vital insights, and the skills developed on this journey, is a great way to help you succeed.

I offer two unusual experiences for my clients:
1. I've trained over 1500 entrepreneurs, run entrepreneurial ventures myself, helped raise over $0.5B in funding, written books on strategy and finance, researched strategy for many years, worked in well-known strategy consultancies, investment banks, business schools....In short, I offer a deep and diverse set of experiences, from which many powerful insights can be drawn. Moreover, I work in networks and teams with similarly-experienced people. All those resources are drawn upon to support your goals.
2. I won't stop until I have delivered STRONG value to you. If I take a project, then, from that moment, everything is committed to doing whatever it takes to build a robust platform for your success.

Yes, remote working can work well. I run meetings on Zoom, Teams or Skype and am comfortable with sharing large volumes of data via various platforms.

I can offer all my services remotely. Moreover, many clients appreciate that sessions can be recorded and played back to help retention of key points.


Are you searching for ways to accelerate business growth? Or methods for rapidly developing new, strong products and services? Do you seek business coaching to build your confidence and test your thinking?

I've performed strategy reviews, created business plans and tested concepts for many hundreds of businesses. I've helped businesses raise over £275m, tested business concepts, created new six figure business models, coached international clients...I've authored a top-rated text on strategy and strategic thinking (see my weblinks).

The chances are, whatever you need, I and my team have tackled something very similar before.

Does you need to raise capital? Do you want to refine and enhance your business plan?

I've trained 1000's of businesses and entrepreneurs to raise millions in equity finance and have authored a well-regarded book (see my links) on pitching for finance and business planning. Moreover, I co-won "Business Finance Educator of the Year" with Connect Midlands.

Whatever you need in terms of long-term business and financial planning, forecasting, capital raising, or involvement in M&A, I've researched, taught, managed and consulted on a similar project within recent years. My team and I are therefore very confident we can help you meet and exceed your financial goals.
