Solving business problems

Comments Off on Solving business problems


It’s a testing time for business, but it’s the same for you and your competitors.

Undoubtedly, those businesses that thrive best have a robust and considered plan for success built on marketing driven understanding and strategy.

That is, who can and will buy from you; where do you find them; what will you offer them and what will make you stand out as the right choice.

Many businesses feel they can answer these questions but when we talk I find they are only looking at a very shallow level at these issues.
I work with businesses of all sizes and have developed a range of ways of working that allows me to be heavily involved with some, provide only guidance and an external perspective to others and everything in between.

I bring a strong mix of financial, marketing, digital marketing, management and sales and combine those with experience from playing top-level sport and studying performance. A powerful combination to help make your business stronger, more profitable and sustainable.

Below are some of the broad ways in which I am engaged by clients – sometimes on a project basis, sometimes providing occasional coaching and sometimes by working on a regular basis inside a business.
