Small Business Experience
Ran own SME’s. Coached SME’s in all aspects of business growth.
I’ve worked as a business coach / strategic consultant for the past 13 years with companies across Europe, specialise in scale-up stage businesses.
I bought my first company in my 20’s, and I’ve founded one or two more. Running my own companies I learnt the hard way, from the successes and failures. After exiting my businesses I decided to increase my knowledge base I went on to do an MBA.
With both the practice and theory under my belt, I can confidently support others in running their business; providing something that I wish I’d had…that all important outsider view.
