Non-Exec, High Growth Business Coach, Technology and Digital Specialist with access to Funding
Looking to kick start growth in your business? Looking for a non-executive director or high growth business coach who has worked with over 300 companies to help them towards the financial freedom that comes with running your own business?
Experience and Proven Accessible Approaches to Management
I have worked with over 300 businesses across many sectors over the last 15 years to help them achieve the growth needed to get them to their goals. Over that time I have developed a framework called GrowthKicker (www.growthkicker.com) that looks at the key areas of the business which includes; leadership, people, strategy, implementation, communication, process (includes sales, marketing, production, operations & accounting) and performance. This framework is backed up by well-respected management experts and all the knowledge and techniques are available through affordable management literature.
I run the MD Growth Board (www.mdgrowthboard.co.uk ) which is an advisory group of Managing Directors and Business owners who meet each month to grow their businesses. I am also a member of an advisory board group to one of my longer term clients. Through a local business support organisation I am also developing groups of business owners who will work with each other to develop their businesses. (www.groupmentoring.co.uk ).
Proven Process for Strategy Development
I run strategy workshops for companies taking business owners and decision makers from why they are in business, capturing their value proposition, looking at how they can make their competition irrelevant, capturing their strategy on a single easy to understand chart, developing their business model on a single page and then developing a simple to understand strategy implementation plan that can be used to drive change.
Competitive Advantage through Technology
A lot of businesses both trading and technology based business can gain a strategic advantage through the use of technology either internally or to create cloud based systems that their customers can access and integrate into their businesses so helping to lock in customers and develop a higher retained income and gain economies of scale for higher profitability.

Working with ambitious high growth companies I am often asked for funding and investment and so I am also an associate of QRVentures ( www.qrventures.co.uk ) and so have access to a wide network of funding and investment solutions so that the growth can continue uninhibited.
