A short story about Nick’s skills
You will value the way I safeguard your investment in the start-up or high-growth companies that you are funding.
You want your investment to grow. You have researched a project and you believe it will be a great success. Now you are trusting other people with your money to allow them to develop the product or service. It will form the basis for your future RoI.
However they don’t have the business experience or skills. You are not ready to give them complete freedom with your money. They need guidance, business support, systems and processes to build the company alongside the product.
Nick safeguards your investment; he brings business skills to start-ups and high growth companies; he ensures that when the future buyer in your investment does their due diligence, your deal is sound
My clients value my knowledge and experience. Some of this comes from formal from training. Some comes from running many companies as CEO, retained by my clients to put right what had gone wrong.
My speciality is working with Boards of Directors (usually the founders) to ensure they collaborate well together, that they are all in agreement, and that they are focusing on the right areas to make sure that the value in the company is secure. These are often things they don’t realise are important until too late. Both investors and founders of high growth companies value my support, my insights and wisdom.
Having sold my own business, some remarkable successes were achieved during high-profile roles as Interim CEO with many organisations.
Also having in depth training from many courses including: graduating ‘with distinction’ from the MBA programme at Imperial College, London; formal training in business coaching with tools specifically designed for the mid-tier business sector; and formal training for the role of Director by the Institute of Directors.
