Professional Profile

I have grown and managed several businesses over the last 15 years. I am passionate about growing businesses and via my role as a business success partner I am helping a variety of businesses and business owners to achieve their visions. I have an extensive background in the financial services industry and understand the importance of the numbers but also have a passion for understanding a business owners passion and vision and helping to achieve it. I am an “uncompromising friend” in an advisory board. A friend as in business as I understand how lonely and hard it can be for a business owner…sometime you need a sounding board. Uncompromising in that if we set a goal of achieving a vision I will make sure you achieve it…which may result in me getting “grumpy”! I have set up advisory boards in the past and knows what works and what does not work.

Industry experience additional comments

Whilst I have (and do) work for a number of different industries I find I can add value to any industry at an advisory board level by ensuring that I do not have preconceived ideas about how a business should be run. The whole point of having an advisory board is to challenge you and help you achieve your vision (or that of the business).
