I'm a chartered management accountant, have a Masters in Business Administration, am a trained business coach and got over 30 years’ experience within finance, operational and strategic management and commercial contracting across both the private and public sector. I have held strategic positions in healthcare and education.  I’ve run my own small business for the past 8 yrs providing coaching and financial management support to small businesses. 

I support business owners to reach their goals and ambitions and enjoy the success they deserve. I love people and I love business, and thrive on helping people and their businesses to not only succeed, but also to flourish.

My areas of expertise are:-

🧭 creating business plans
🧭 financial management
🧭 strategic planning
🧭 maximising profit
🧭 business coaching & mentoring

Depending on the individual needs of a business, I can either be the Virtual Finance Director and take on running the financial side of the business as well as providing strategic direction, whilst the owner gets on with doing what they do best and what they enjoy! Or I can work with business owners and their teams providing strategic direction and help them to develop their financial skills and expertise so they are confident on running the business themselves. I work with businesses on a freelance basis from as little as one day per quarter.

I also support business owners to write a clear and concise business plan, which is absolutely crucial. It's a business's roadmap on where they are now, where they want to get to and how they're going to get there. Having a business plan and keeping it refreshed is key to being successful.
