About Ian

I am an experienced Business Adviser / Mentor with over 40 years in senior management / executive roles. I am a straight talking professional who doesn´t believe in jargon and buzz words. I believe in working with my clients to find the solutions that suit their business needs, not delivering a one size fits all solution. I specialise in solving business owners and senior executives’ problems by reducing costs, increasing turnover by increasing productivity and efficiency. Having started in Production Engineering in the late 1970´s I have been priviledged to have designed, built and run production units in several countries. I have worked in The Middle East, South East Asia, The Far East, Africa, North Africa, East Europe and several European countries. I have managed teams up to 8,500 workers. Start ups are a passion of mine. I love to help people turn their passions into a viable business. I am a member of The Association of Busines Mentors and an active Mentor, Interviewer and Peer to Peer Mentor Group Facilitator on the UK Governments Help to Grow Programme. If I can help you in any way, please send me a message in the box below.
