Welcome to

A management consultancy specialising in working with SMEs whose turnover is up to £6m in any sector that wants to scale up their business. We provide Non Executive Director and Board Advisory services. We have clearly defined processes and methodology for developing and growing businesses and our specialist knowledge is in Organisational Structure and Marketing Strategy and as such, we look at organisations differently to most NED’s; which sets us apart.

We work with business owners who genuinely want to grow their business for value creation and not for those who are running lifestyle businesses. We help you to identify key drivers that will enable the business to scale up. As the business develops through its lifecycle it will need help in structuring to enable growth by planning through diversification, restructuring or aligning the business with a range of strategies for future growth. We will hold the executive team to account; guide; challenge and support them by ensuring there is a diverse group of people on the board (as needed) with different backgrounds and experience. This will allow us to formulate growth strategies and drive performance through financial and activity based KPI’s to accelerate performance and value.


Business owners need help in being able to work on their business rather than working in their business; to enable real growth and value. A Non Executive Director can help them to put measures in place to drive performance, accelerate profitability and sustainable growth, by being objective about issues. Big picture stuff. Seeing things that internal executives don’t because they are too close to the day to day.

The Friday Strategist - Free Business Advice

Book your free strategy call

Book a call or virtual meeting with me to discuss any business strategy that you are developing to ensure you have considered all your options and to get a second opinion.  What you do post covid-19 will have a substantial impact on your financial well being and sustainability, I am here to ensure you have considered everything first.

  I have set aside every Friday morning completely free of charge to assist SMEs to develop their strategies or to talk through problems they may be having in their business but don’t know who to ask.

Ask me how best to develop a diversification, acquisition or exit strategy and if what you are considering will work for you without wasting valuable time and money by getting an independent view.

You will already have people who advise you on financial matters, however I am offering you a second opinion before you commit yourself for the long term or you just want someone who is completely unbiased and who does not have a vested interest.

You will never receive any communication from me after the meeting unless you ask me to.  All advice given is without obligation and completely confidential.
