Meeting Preference: Email, In Person, Phone, Video
I recently completed a forty-year career that embraced the successful establishment of start-up businesses, plus the management of small, medium and large business enterprises providing professional services to a global client community.
In the spirit of ‘giving back’, I am strongly committed to lever my accumulated experience of real-world business and management issues to inspire, coach, guide and mentor business leaders in both start up and established businesses. In this way, and through a partnership founded on SCORE’s proven mentoring methodology, I can help entrepreneurs to meet their many business challenges, grow their enterprise and realize their dreams.
Specific areas where I can provide mentoring support include:
Startup Assistance: practical steps to establish a business; preparing a blueprint for growth through a meaningful business plan; overcoming obstacles; understanding the market and competitive position; assessing strength, weakness, opportunity and threat.
Buying/Selling Your Business: how to develop an exit strategy and sell your business; valuation; what a potential buyer is looking for; understanding the buy/sell process; ownership transition.
Strategy and Planning: establishing a strategic plan for growth; developing vision and values; building brand and business culture.
Operations: leadership development; managing human capital and talent; building high-achieving teams; recruitment and retention challenges; measuring, managing and mitigating risk; back-office administration; organizational structure; project management.
Finance: financial analysis, planning, budgeting and forecasting; key performance indicators; debtor, cash and cost management; understanding the P&L account and the balance sheet; inter-state and international trading.
