Non Executive Director

Smaller businesses share many of the same problems encountered by large multi-national organisations, albeit on a much smaller scale.

One of the ways in which small businesses can adapt the methods of large organisations is to appoint Non Executive Directors (NEDs).  A NED can offer a dimension of governance and compliance which allows Executive Directors and business owners to concentrate on growing their business.

NEDs can also offer an area of expertise such as HR, Finance.  Although I offer a general level of expertise in small and family business management, I also have Chartered Institute of Marketing qualifications, so my experience lends itself towards the sales and fulfillment side of business.

I usually like to offer my services as a NED on a daily or half day basis, this allows me to attend board meetings, or offer help with special projects.

For a complimentary initial consultation please drop me a line or give me a call.

About Me

Small businesses make up the vast majority of the UK economy, we employ more people, generate more tax revenues and create more wealth than the rest of the UK economy put together.

All businesses need a little help from time to time, that maybe the oversight of a Non Executive Director, or an interim manager who offers help and support at a time of need or crisis or simply an outside eye to offer support and pracical advice at regular intervals.

I've been involved in small and medium-sized businesses for over 30 years. My first career was in the Hospitality sector, I then moved into temporary healthcare staffing, healthcare provision and finally international recruitment.

I've been involved in businesses that experienced extraordinary growth, and stagnation. Both can be problematic and need management, different styles of management, but management none the less.

Many issues draw a business owner away from their primary role; to strategise, to ensure success and make sure the business is still trading a year from now. Often, that re-focusing requires an outside eye, that's where a good business adviser is invaluable.

I offer practical no-nonsense advice and support. I can't honestly say I've seen every eventuality that a business may encounter, I don't believe anyone can, however when times get difficult, as they do in all businesses, it's good to have someone you can call on who's prepared to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in.
