Serial entrepreneur and experienced consultant gives business lessons in Stourbridge/ or remote

Methodology

My teaching methods are geared to individual or group needs - I have trained from btec level to degree/masters level, from entry level to Director and use a range of presentations, exercises, case studies as necessary. In my most recent project, (performance management) I worked with the group to develop their learning objectives from scratch, so the course was tailored to the group which also had an action plan of what to do next once the participants had left the course.

Background

I have a Business studies degree and MBA and have used it in marketing consulting, corporate finance, marketing/financial management in the corporate sector before setting up my own business and helping others as a cofounder. I have also been a trainer on finance for non finance managers, startups, strategy, marketing, innovation and sales
