As a savvy Finance Director, strategist and troubleshooter, I specialise in cash generation, business growth, corporate finance and tax for ambitious SMEs. I write and speak on smart business, finance, tax and values-based leadership.
A smart business generates cash and is lean, agile and fun to run. Clients hire me to help them become a smart business owner where they generate more cash, keep more of what they earn and enjoy their business life more.
My client portfolio includes roles as FD, non-executive director or chairman with owner managed businesses and family companies, and I am a mentor to Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub.
Typical clients are companies with both issues and potential. They may be under-performing, unable to grow, lacking finance, in distress through growing uncontrollably or they may be facing a big strategic decision point. They trust me to deliver stability, control and a more robust business model, opening up future opportunities for growth, both organically and by acquisition and investment.
