Meet the Team
Our team, based in North West England, have a strong collective experience of running their own SME businesses and have developed a broad range of skills working in and with national and global companies. They have worked through and supported businesses through economic recession, have innovated and changed to adapt in times of crisis and have created growth.
We’ve experienced major commercial success and we’ve also hit business, professional and personal barriers along the way.
That’s how we know we can support you… because we’ve been there too.

He is a breath of fresh air, diligent, thoughtful and an experienced practitioner – any business that works with Paul is very lucky, the feedback on this stands for itself.
Paul has provided coaching and mentoring services for the Lancashire Growth Hub, Boost Business Lancashire since 2014 and whilst he has not mentored me directly, he has mentored numerous Boost business clients over that period of time.
I know our Boost delivery partners see Paul as one of their leading go-to mentors in the region.
Myself and Paul do speak frequently and share a similar world view, I would have no hesitation utilising Paul's skills and talents.
Paul acts professionally at all times and has supported our Boost clients achieve positive growth personally and professionally during that time.
He has been able to help us in many ways due to his extensive business experience and successes.
By asking the right questions and zoning in on critical information during discussions Paul has identified areas which we need to tweak and and importantly areas that could be improved upon.
His knowledge and support have given me confidence and provided me with the reassurance I have needed to progress professionally and personally.
It is no coincidence that our fast period of growth has followed from working with Paul.”
