Business Growth Blog

Hello! This is where I share my experiences of setting up, running and scaling businesses.

Read more to learn about the highs and lows, the good and bad times, the great times, and the downright difficult times. I share how I hunted out opportunities, secured investment, sold businesses and formed strategic partnerships.

This blog is all about business growth. I write on my favourite topics such as marketing (a big part of business growth), digital transformation, and helping clients to put together a proper strategy for growth.  I also do regular interviews live on LinkedIn with experts and founders, then share it to The Growth Podcast, and here on the blog too.
