Founder of 20 businesses involving Mazda Cars UK, Snap-On Tools, Automotive Distributors, Hambleden Group and MCL Group. I specialise in inventing business solutions that skill-up owners, directors, managers to be self sufficient in growing their businesses and building wealth from their enterprises.
I'm currently engaged in creating two new business consulting and management training firms:
1. runagood.com ltd is the first online business performance support service for micro businesses at affordable prices.
2. Hawick Group Ltd is the only specialist at helping non-profit organisations to develop commercial income sources, skills & knowledge
Both are gaining new clients every month and the plan is to keep growing with the help of experienced business people to join as working investors
