Business Guide & Trusted Advisor

Business doesn’t get easier – you get better at business

Maybe you have reached a certain point in your knowledge or have just taken that next step in your career to leading a business? The business cannot get better if you don’t improve and grow yourself?

James will support you as your trusted advisor and business guide, helping you step back, see the bigger picture and become your navigator; keeping you very much in the driving seat.


Whether a senior leader, entrepreneur or owner, running a business can be a lonely place with  potential shareholders to satisfy, a board to keep on side and management to lead and inspire. James has first-hand experience of how challenging and isolating this can be, with no-one to lean on for impartial advice or just bounce ideas off. 

With over 30 years of running his own successful businesses he can draw on his wealth of knowledge, professional expertise and personal experience with similar circumstances, having personally tried and tested ‘what not to do’ on a number of occasions!

Having a Trusted Business Advisor isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity your business must have if you’re to experience significant and sustainable growth. James will work hard with you to give you an advantage over your competitor, to deliver a positive ROI for your business.
