Stuart Cross (www.morgancross.co.uk) helps companies to dramatically accelerate growth. His clients include many of the world's leading businesses, such as Alliance Boots, GSK, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Avon Cosmetics, Wm Morrison Supermarkets, RBS Insurance, Sealed Air and Aimia.
His first book, The CEO's Strategy Handbook, was published in 2011 to critical acclaim. Prior to launching his consulting business, Morgan Cross Consulting, Stuart led the strategy team at Boots the Chemists, the UK's leading pharmacy chain and helped to plan and deliver the company's 2006 merger with Alliance Unichem.
Stuart is a chartered accountant - though he rarely divulges this information on a 'first date' - and has an MBA from Warwick Business School. In addition to his consulting, coaching and speaking engagements, Stuart also teaches on the MBA programmes at both Warwick and Nottingham University Business School. As part of his mid-life crisis Stuart has joined his first ever rock band, The Imposters, as guitarist. Do not expect them to be playing in a town near you anytime soon.
