Hello, I am an experienced business leader with practical knowledge of the printing, industrial automation and electronics manufacturing industries. Highly skilled in the management of IT, Sales, Operations, Manufacturing, Product Development, and Strategic Planning.
All the business owners and directors I meet are highly motivated, have clear objectives and are experts in in their fields. Equally, most of them are time pressured, and often have to put their hands to every aspect of their business, sales, marketing, HR, Health & Safety, Quality and IT etc..
So, after 30+ years and successful careers in several different industries, I now assist South West businesses by providing interim and ongoing management support.
My approach is very much hands on, whether it is preparing a business plan or mucking in to load the truck on the last day of the month, I work as part of the team, and not as a consultant detached from the business.
I don’t offer coaching, mentoring, consultancy or motivational speeches. I work as part of the team to get actual jobs done and to deliver results for the business. Typical projects include…
- Health and Safety
- HR Processes
- Implementing new IT systems and software packages
- Introducing new products
- Setting up new processes and equipment.
- Documenting existing processes.
- Preparing for supplier audits.
- Factory Relocations
- Acquiring New Business
- Interim management due to unexpected absence.
Central to my approach is a clear focus on developing staff at all levels to build resilient and effective teams. This allows the skills I bring to remain embedded in the people and the business.
Every business and project is different and my charging structure reflects this. Services can be provide on a project, monthly, weekly or even hourly basis. Just pay for the resource and expertise you need, only when you need it. No employers NI, No holiday pay, No Sick Pay, No retainer.
Although I have a network of trusted contacts, I work completely independently and am equally happy to work with your existing advisors.
