    Profile

    "I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be." — Douglas Adams

    At its simplest; I am a navigator. I work alongside the captain of the ship, supporting her or him with the following:

    Are we headed somewhere we *really* want to go? Why do we want to go there? What is at the end of the journey for us? (Vision & Purpose)

    Do we know what it will take to get there, do we know what route will overcome likely obstacles? (Value Proposition)

    As we set in motion how do we know we will overcome the obstacles? Do we have what's needed? Can we spot if we are off course? Or if a better destination has come into view? (Strategy & Planning)

    Lastly, I am on the bridge with you. You are not alone, there is someone to offer a sounding board, a different perspective, and where the journey gets difficult the right support & guidance.

    Typically I work with people who have realised that they need their business to have a much greater impact. That can be a financial impact on them and their families as well as doing more good in the world. At the same time, they would like to enjoy running the business more.

    The work is tough at times (what journey of any value is not?) but it is also good fun and exciting as the momentum begins to build.

    If you are doing something interesting then please get in touch. I'd like to hear about it.
