About Rob

ince 2000, I've been providing interim Finance Director support for SMEs and blue chips across the North West.



MY PHILOSOPHY / MY VALUES



My experience of managing and supporting businesses has provided me with what I believe is a straightforward assessment of the key elements which require examination, for businesses experiencing challenges.



In my view there can only be 3 fundamental business-orientated issues affecting any organisation.



1. Processes, Systems & Procedures

When no clear methodology is being followed by the business and its employees, flows of information are inefficient and result in low levels of productivity.

2. Employees suffering from quantitative and qualitative overload

Employees may feel disengaged as they may have too much work to do or lack the technical competency to perform their roles.

3. Leadership, Direction, Management Style

The lack of an achievable vision for the direction of an organisation results in confusion and a lack of goal congruence.



I created this business as a vehicle to help implement the 4 complimentary services I provide, which are the tools I use to address these fundamental concepts, translating into real sustainable results for you and your business.
