* Project Recovery / Turnaround
* Organisational Change / Business Restructuring
* Thought Leadership / Consultancy / Change Agent
* Contract Negotiations with both Client and Supplier
* Outsourcing Large Corporate / Government
* Mediating Sales / Operational / Technical / Financial needs
* Business Development
* Project and Systems Development Management
* Relationship / Account Management
* Human Resource Development
* Financial, Management Accountancy & Audit
* Overseas Assignments
My client experience includes amongst many others:
* Procter & Gamble
* Inland Revenue
* Paymaster General's Office
* Civil Aviation Authority
and now wish to apply these large corporate skills to the small business environment.
Appreciating the financial constraints of small businesses I prefer to work primarily on a risk reward basis where both parties objectives are truly aligned.
Having turned around many under performing contracts and more recently leading the negotiations in the sale of a small business, significantly increasing the sale price, I am confident I can add value to your business.
