I am an experienced, creative, personable, business mentor and coach, with 15 years of practical small business experience, a MA in Marketing and a MBA from a top London business school.
I am highly creative and will challenge you to achieve your business goals and aspirations. I am not afraid to challenge you whatever your commercial experience. If you ask me to, I will shine a spotlight on your current operations. This will enable you see clearly what needs to change to ensure a profitable, sustainable business.
I’m a Business Mentor because I like people and people create, develop and run businesses. I am very skilled at getting to the root cause of business issues and problems – creating successful solutions for you and your colleagues to implement.
I’m here to get to know you – what makes you tick and how to motivate you and your management team. I will ask difficult questions and reflect back what I see, hear and understand. This outside perspective will help you when trying something new or tackling a lacklustre task. It is how you and your business will grow.
You’ll find me a safe pair of hands, full of ideas and creative solutions. Through my mentoring service we’ll work as a team helping you to build strategies, create business plans, and develop critical business skills such pitching for new business, understanding business accounts, engaging with your team. I’ll make it fun, at times you might find it challenging, but it’s all for the growth, development and success of your organisation.
My skills as a Business Mentor and competent coach are underpinned by my extensive, direct and practical business experience.
Before starting my mentoring consultancy I spent more than 15 years working in owner managed small businesses. I have set up and run a marketing communications agency taking it from start up to a profitable, sustainable business in 5 years. I’ve had considerable hands-on senior management and advisory experience in established companies as well as an eclectic blend of start-ups.
My experience also rests on my specialist business education. I hold an MA in Marketing at Distinction level and also received a distinction for my executive MBA, Masters in Business Administration, (5th in the UK – Financial Times 2015) from Cass Business School in London, ranked 3rd in London, 6th in the UK, 21st in Europe (Financial Times 2015).
