I live in Nottingham, with my wife and two boys. A former (make that very former) 400M athlete I am a Black Belt (and very much still learning) in Shorin Ryu the original Okinawan Karate. I support Carlisle United by birth and Nottingham Forest by fortune.
I started my career in the armed forces where I served 10 years in Military Intelligence. On leaving the armed forces I worked in Recruitment, overall I have twenty years experience in Corporate & Competitive Intelligence, Research and Head Hunting.
I currently run several successful businesses and am the Chairman of a Non-Profit.
I specialise in helping clients acquire a greater knowledge of their business environment, minimise risk and uncertainty, pre-empt competitors actions, make smarter decisions and back up funding rounds to grow sales and profits.
Through the work I do helping start-ups meet suitable investors I have developed great knowledge of business grants, financial structures, business plans and stress testing.
I work with Crawford Strategic, as a Consultant, Coach and Non-Executive as well as providing Competitive Intelligence services for their clients and running Crawford Selection.
Archi and I have known each other twenty years and are delighted to be working together helping businesses grow sales and profits.
