Business support for new and growing businesses
I am a business advisor and trainer specialising in start-up businesses enabling over 200 people to start their own business in the last 3 years.
The 1:1 advice sessions and interactive workshops I focus on cover various areas including Finance, Sales, Marketing and Growth.
As the adviser for the New Enterprise Allowance, I enable people to go from benefit into starting their own small business.
Delivering the Barclays sponsored Ready for Business programme enabled me to reach out to a number of local businesses and support their needs.
I have been involved in delivering the business advice portion of the TDA contract with Somerset County Council to manage their business centres in Somerset.
Previously I was Managing Director of a UK based electronic component distributor as well as Executive Vice President of a Swiss based manufacturer of man machine interface devices responsible for sales and marketing Worldwide. This experience enables me to offer business advice while considering the management of the business and its objectives.
My role connects me with a number of business networking groups across the Bay. I am a director of the Fredericks Foundation (Devon) a charity that provides loan finance to start up businesses as well as assistance with cash flow for more mature ones.
