I offer independent and objective advice to public sector organisations who wish to engage my services as a business mentor to their clients. When mentoring entrepreneurs or start-up organisations I work through a range of issues to help the client decide the best route forward for their business. If the company or client is intent on developing new ideas and new markets I can offer a diagnostic report service that acts as a first step to helping a company identify the drivers that will help them diversify in the marketplace.

I seek to identify opportunities and assist growth. Occasionally I link experts to a business for a period of time to help train and develop innovation focused projects.
I love to deliver training programmes and to work on skills courses. Oftentimes I partner with private sector trainers or support organisations such as Local Enterprise Offices, or not for profit organisations, by providing training concepts and training co-ordination assistance. These are oftentimes to public agencies, private companies and cultural industry clients. Oftentimes the programme focus is on the ‘people needs’ of an organisation – where people are required to be creative, using their experience and knowledge to drive innovation and new growth paths in their market place.
