55% of Lancashire businesses will not make it to their fifth year in business. It’s my job to reduce that number to zero. I serve the SME community from pre start, start up, scale up and medium enterprises with a very quick, very low cost business growth programme called Success GPS.
I have worked with 60 businesses in the last 12 months, and I’ll work with 250 businesses this year – the results have been amazing, massive growth in turnover, profit, and an increase in job creation – as well as a huge dose of mojo, energy and positivity.
What one top tip would you give to a business owner embarking on a growth plan?
Start at the end and work backwards.
Why is Lancashire a great place to grow a business?
It is so collaborative and supportive. Everyone exists to help others to achieve more of what they want, more business, more impact, more collaboration. It is the most connected and supportive county in the UK. Maybe even the world.
Why are you backing Boost Business Lancashire?
Because I believe we are stronger together. We are better able to meet the needs of those organisations we serve when working collaboratively.
