An accomplished business leader ‘who’s walked the walk’.
Having started, built and sold three of my own companies, completed successful Management-Buyouts of 2 companies (and exited both), it feels like my business journey has equipped me with the skills and knowledge to help small business owners such as yourself to get more out of life by getting more out of your business.
As a business coach, this is my point of differentiation – I have walked the walk!
And ‘I eat my own dog food’ as the saying goes. In other words I ensure I am coached, all the time, In fact I’ve been coached for 15 years and currently have 2 coaches – a performance and accountability coach and a mindset coach.
I now work with business owners of local SMEs to help them build better businesses and navigate periods of rapid growth. I also help owners with business acquisitions, mergers and how to develop and execute exit plans so they can reap the rewards of their entrepreneurial endeavors.
I live in Wokingham and spend my time with my family, travelling, golfing and reading a lot!
