Having supported 100s of small and growing businesses across different industry sectors over the last 20 years or so, I now tend to work with a more select group of firms in the advanced engineering / manufacturing, technology and construction / property markets.
I most enjoy working with businesses on their strategic development and facilitating partnership building to help broaden their perspectives, networks and customer base. I regularly link up with other professionals and service providers to help these companies achieve their growth ambitions.
My technical strengths lie in a broad knowledge of funding options, covering grants, bridging loans and equity finance, combined with a common sense approach to accessing much-needed finance. My particular forte is preparing business proposals, business plans and tenders, helping businesses to prepare high quality funding applications and sales documents to increase their success.
I have had the privilege to help guide and nurture some fantastic business owners over the years, many of whom I regard as true friends. Many people in my field of work describe business consultancy simply as 'helping people' and it is a cloak that fits well.
