    Founder of BGI Strategy on a Page methodology, which is internationally applied by coaches, consultants & mentors who are BGI Accredited Practitioners. Deri is a leading Business Strategic Adviser specifically for SMEs as he bring the big business strategic planning to the small business owners.

    His army of trusted BGI Accredited Partners help disseminate & empower SMEs globally with these revolutionary tools.

    When it comes to Deri Llewellyn-Davies, the phrase ‘suited and booted’ takes on a new meaning. As the UK’s leading authority on bringing strategy alive, Deri spends his days in a pinstriped three-piece and his spare time climbing the highest summits in the world wearing some of the biggest boots in the world (just one of his extreme exploits). Deri loves business and adventure in equal measure and the same motivation underpins both: a fascination with life and a curiosity that always leads him to ask, “Why?” or more importantly, “Why not,” as he believes anything is possible.

    That questioning is key in his role as CEO of Business Growth International, as he helps leaders in both FTSE 500 and entrepreneurial companies to take their businesses to the next level. With over 15 years’ experience of the commercial markets, Deri knows that whatever issues businesses are facing – from funding shortages to management fall-outs, redundancy to bankruptcy – he’s personally been there from acting as director on 18 boards, advising over 125 companies and through his MBA, angel and venture capital networks. And it’s exactly that experience he shares, teaching 3 key steps to improve their business:

    • Distilling the business strategy onto a single A4 page
    • Aligning everyone to the vision, values and purpose
    • Making strategy simple, engaging & memorable.

    Having completed the Marathon des Sables (the toughest thing he’ll ever do) and climbed five of the world’s highest summits, Deri has only two more mountains, both Poles, an Iron Man and a jungle marathon to go.
