My passion is helping businesses succeed

 

I worked in the House of Commons for 25 years and worked my way up to a management position as Business Manager in the Department of Information Services.

I worked on the departmental business plan, annual review, budget (£20 million) and designed a balanced scorecard (management tool) which was used by the Board of Directors to manage both the money and resources.  

When I took early retirement, I didn't realise that I had so many transferable skills!

Since then, I've been working with a variety of businesses, big and small, to help them look at their strategy, implement systems and processes and manage the numbers.

I've written a couple of books which are on Amazon as well.  When someone first said that I should write a book, I can remember saying "people like me don't write books!".   I have no qualifications and most of my ex-colleagues had degrees and they were the people who wrote books - or so I thought.  Turns out I was wrong and I wrote and published my first book within 12 weeks!

It was only when I started working with businesses that I realised that many of the business owners were very good at what they do but they didn't have the business skills or the network that they needed.  To be honest, why would they?  When you're employed, you don't need these skills.

My crazy idea to solve this problem was to share information and promote each other.  I started with a glorified newsletter which has now evolved into a glossy magazine called Steer Your Business.

The magazine has now become a great networking tool as well as a fantastic resource for businesses.
