    Why do the majority of UK SME businesses fail to achieve their true potential? More than likely it’s because the majority do not have an up to date written down strategy or business plan to help them achieve their goals. In fact, probably the last time they produced a business plan was when they secured some form of finance when they set out, which is now gathering dust somewhere in their office

    After 27 years’ experience in blue chip companies, in 2014 I launched my own business, Matrix Coaching & Development, to tackle this head on. I am passionate about mentoring more business leaders to be successful by offering straight forward and plain speaking advise and support, not lengthy reports filled with management consultant jargon. At first glance business strategy can seem overly complicated, however with my step by step approach I will walk you through the process which will result in one-page strategy document being produced which then allows you to achieve your vision for your business. You can expect me to get involved, because I know from experience that this is what it will take to help you achieve your vision.

    At Matrix we work with ambitious business leaders and entrepreneurs to help them develop sustainable growth and operational excellence acting as their business mentor to keep them accountable.

    We work with clients on a one-to-one or interim assignment basis as a strategy expert, mentor and coach to support them in producing and implementing a business transformation plan.

    Whichever way they work with me, clients see significant growth in their business results and improvements in their financial rewards and work life balance. For success stories and evidence, take a look at my LinkedIn and Consultant Hub recommendations or check out the testimonials section of the Matrix website.

    If you not sure if you benefit from a business coach mentor, then just answer the following questions;

    ¬ Are you working too many hours, including evenings and weekends?
    ¬ Have you lost your passion and know you don’t spend enough time client facing?
    ¬ Are you shackled to the business?
    ¬ Is there never have enough cash-flow and do you pay yourself last, if at all?
    ¬ Is your sales pipeline low and do your prices need increasing?
    ¬ Are you losing market share to the competition?
    ¬ Do you want to maximise your gross margin profits?
    ¬ Do you feel stressed and unsure which way to turn?

    If you need to tackle these issues, then please connect with me today or call 07969 102755 to have an informal confidential conversation to see how I can best support you.
