More About the Author

I enjoy working on business turnaround and restructuring with owner managed, family and entrepreneurial businesses in the £3m to £25m range. I look to help in supporting and helping the business owner through their problems and a business turnaround, using a coaching, counselling and training approach, to achieve a proper turnaround of their business into success and regrowth.

I believe that turnaround is not just a short sharp matter of restructuring the balance sheet and cutting overhead costs (although these are usually vital), but true turnaround is a longer harder process of restructuring the business so as to deliver improved quality and quantity of profits and business value.

I work normally across the North East, with clients in Newcastle, Northumberland, County Durham, Teesside (Darlington, Stockton and Middlesbrough) and Yorkshire from York down to Leeds, Halifax and Huddersfield on the M62 corridor; the North West, Cumbria, Lancaster, Wigan, Bolton and down to Manchester and Rochdale; as well as in the South and South East based around London where I have worked in Cambridge, Reading, Oxford, Bristol, Gatwick and Eastbourne.

I am a generalist, having worked across a wide variety of industries including a charter airline, branded goods importer, electronics manufacturer, clothing importer, construction group, business services, professional services, joinery manufacturer, a diversified manufacturing group, weaving, waste management, specialist contract labour supplier, plastics moulder, food manufacturer, furniture importer, pub & nightclub operator, window manufacturer, hospital equipment manufacturer, furniture retailer, E-based stock broker.
