Winning in Business . . . .


Being CEO/MD of a SME is a great role, often even a rewarding role, yet it is certainly challenging and most often a very lonely role. Having been there, I know from experience. Its why I established ISDS. Whether you're seeking support for fund raising for working capital or investment, needing support to develop your business strategy to commercialise your business Vision or simply need a confidential and experienced 'sounding board', I'm here to help you suceed.

Traditional business practice is no longer capable of successfully addressing these contemporary challenges. For the business leader, defining, coping with and leading this change is difficult with the distractions of the 'here and now' pressures faced every day. Also achieving the correct balance between innovation, discipline and entrepreneurial flair is vital to enabling this 'journey', whilst aligning all resources effectively, efficiently AND flexibly with your 'Ambition' is a fundamental for survival, let alone growth and sustainability.

ISΔS business mentoring and coaching support is focused on providing common sense, practical 1 to 1 support for the Business Leader to address these challenges directly within the context of their own personal needs and business environment. Whether its a 'hands-off' mentoring role or more of a 'hands-on' coaching role is your choice.

Many leaders have already successfully benefited from these services; take a look at the client testimonials available on this site. So if you are a SME business leader or Director who wants to re-invigorate yourself and your business to grow 'real' and sustainable value, GIVE ME A CALL for an informal chat about how this can be achieved.
