January 2012 - Present Founder CEO and Director at Employer Name Withheld

I founded this company in January 2012, motivated by the alarming research evidencing how the majority of businesses fail and how hard it is to find the right advice and suppliers required to survive and thrive. The quality, affordability and credibility of the board advice, executive coaching, training and mentoring available to businesses is generally lacklustre or very disappointing.

As the founder, I have been labouring hard to beat the norm and create greater success results for ambitious companies, leaders and entrepreneurs in their work and lives!

My role as Founder and Director is to lead implementation of our growth strategy, protect our culture and grow our ambitious client portfolio. By collaborating to leverage the best of our skills, experiences and contacts, we can all achieve much more and more easily whilst having a deeper impact on many lives – even boosting economic growth through job and wealth creation!
