As an independent consultant, coach and trainer I specialise in helping small businesses become more confident, resilient and profitable. I left the corporate world in 2005 - KPMG and Mars Confectionery - having worked across finance, logistics, sales planning, sales and account management and, ultimately, sales training. Not many can claim that diverse a work profile!
From my experience of small businesses so much more can often be achieved with the resources they already have. Clearer plans, using accurate numbers to make good decisions, understanding and using team strengths, getting the most from marketing collateral and relevant, aligned job descriptions for all can all make a significant difference to business results.
I hand-hold, challenge, coach and train - the balance is different for every business.
Outside of work I look after my 2 teenage daughters and squeeze in time for Nordic walking, playing tennis and badminton.
