How I can help you
I can help you define your business proposition and match it with your core competencies, ensuring strategic alignment of your business from target customer definition through operations within your competitive environment.
Whether your business is in the feasibility stage, or whether you are trying to improve profitability through customer segmentation and rationalization, or through operational enhancements and alignment, I would love to help. I also believe that metrics drive performance and that a quantitative approach is key to good decision making.
I also believe in a collaborative approach to SCORE counseling, whereby other SCORE mentors are brought in/ consulted as required in order to fully meet your mentoring needs.
