Business consultant, branding, e-commerce. Expert investment advisor helping start ups and companies get investment ready.
I am an MBA qualified Start-Up & Innovation coach, Leanstack coach, certified pretotyper & growth master, with a passion for developing innovation opportunities within organisations and with startups.
I have over 20 years of experience of product management in global organisations, managing complex relationships at a strategic level and driving business change.
Focus on working with pre-and-early startups to develop their ideas and to gain traction.
13 Years experience helping businesses start-up, develop and grow. I’m a well rounded business adviser who understands marketing, finance, operations, project management and innovation. I’m particularly interested in helping businesses gain access to finance and know quite a bit about what it takes to become investment ready.
Led a programme of support for student and graduate start-ups across various industries. The programme focuses on early stage (pre-trading/ registration) start-ups and I can provide coaching, mentoring and connect individuals with the local start-up community and further start-up support. I also have experience in start-up social media and business modelling of start-ups. I currently run my own start-up in the camping industry.
Worked in UX for around 7 years. Originally began working designing and building eCommerce websites, then moved into working on product for startups and some big companies (Dunelm, Waitrose). Over the last few years, I’ve specialised in designing MVP’s and working on early-stage stuff for startups. I’ve also ran a lot of innovation workshops for bigger companies.
The Lean Startup is about learning what your customers really want. It’s about testing your vision continuously, adapting and adjusting before it’s too late.
