Helping owner managed businesses build suitable, profitable businesses in a way that suits
Philippa has worked in and with small businesses throughout all her professional career. She
started in advertising turning creativity into sustainable profit and co-founding a marketing
communications agency in the late 1990s.
After an MA in Marketing and a MBA from Cass Business School she reflected on what she
had really needed whilst leading a growing business. During the ups and down of running a
business, what she yearned for was a mentor, someone who she could talk to (who wasn’t
her accountant), someone who understood what it was like to look after clients so that
wages could be paid at the end of the month. In short, someone who understood the trade-
offs that business owners and managers make every single day.
On completion of her MBA in 2012, she set up her own business mentoring and advisory
service to provide the advice, guidance, mentoring she would have wanted.
Philippa now advises owners of micro companies how to get started and stay afloat and
works with University incubators and accelerators on providing 121 mentoring to business
founders and ‘start your business’ training.
She is also Regional London Ambassador for Mentoring for the Chartered Institute of
Marketing, Chair of the Mentors’ Panel for the Centre for Entrepreneurs and a Freeman of
the Worshipful Company of Marketors’ livery company
Philippa is the Regional Head for London.
