Joe Twigg

Business Adviser | Scale to Thrive

Joe co-founded GradTouch, a graduate recruitment job board and employer branding agency in 2011. In 2018 he launched a private equity backed by a buy and build strategy, making five acquisitions in the higher education sector and then oversaw transformation of the business into a 40+ employee and £5m revenue group, before going through an exit process at the end of 2022.

With over 12 years' experience of running a diverse business, Joe has developed a knowledge base across operations and sales, mergers, acquisitions and integrations, transformation and change projects and continuous improvement. 

As a Boost business adviser, Joe advises businesses on Boost's Scale to Thrive programme. He helps businesses recognise and remove obstacles that may stifle future growth and enjoys guiding businesses to help maximise their potential through unpicking what makes them special and understanding their challenges. 

By asking the right questions and challenging people's ways of thinking, Joe's goal is to help business leaders analyse and evaluate where their growth potential lies, and how best to execute the plan to maximise it. He also plays the role of being an objective sounding board for any ideas or questions they may have been asking themselves

Joe has always enjoyed seeing people and teams grow and develop. Sharing this with businesses was a natural progression and something he delightes in doing. He believes that people are at the heart of any successful growth strategy and they should always be a priority.
