I don't advocate a one size fits all approach and I definitely don't just stick to one worn out methodology. If you have an interesting story or are a little bit quirky then I'm likely to get quite excited.
I can support with future planning, financial management, fundraising, digital transformation, board advice, coaching and mentoring of leaders and managers.

Your success often depends on being seen by the people who count – new customers, partners and investors.

I can help with that.

Helen Fleet

Facilitator

With 20 years experience in finance, I’ve had to deal with many of the highs and lows that running a business involves. In business, I have faced severe cashflow difficulties, raising finance, pricing challenges and the need for a complete business overview to ensure we improve profitability. I have supported clients to get the key foundations in place to ensure they grow a profitable business.

Having worked with agencies throughout the UK to help them build integrated offerings; introducing and developing content teams to pull through additional revenue strands and training and developing the people within the business to manage, develop and grow, I understand the stresses and plate spinning that happens in agency life.

I believe that behind every business is a fascinating story. I love digging in and helping the people I work with understand why their story is interesting and how to translate that into Instagram content.

Ross Mackenzie

Facilitator

You'll have noticed that most businesses struggle to describe, exactly, what it is they do for their clients. That leads to unnecessarily long sales cycles, lost sales and confused customers.
I show businesses how to bring what it is they sell, the value it brings, and how to sell it into a single coherent message that creates their most compelling value proposition ever.
