The Business Launchpad was a natural extension of my business coaching and consulting activities and draws on my wealth of experience in helping people start their own business.
More and more people want or need to start their own business and sadly so many businesses fail in the first years. There are many reasons for this but the major ones are jumping in without evaluating a business idea; not having the skills or adequate support to run and market a business or not keeping control of the financial side of the business. So… I decided I’d step in and help people avoid failure and get set to achieve business success.
I have a strong international business background in finance, the M & A process, strategic reviews, marketing and social media. I work as a business consultant and coach; run a successful information products business; hold workshops on business start-up, business planning and using social media in business. I teach sectoral analysis on the MBA program at one of North America’s top business schools (HEC Montréal), Business Strategy at the University of Economics in Prague.
My work has taken me to many countries around the world usually for weeks at a time: Australia, South East Asia, the Middle East, Africa, North America and Europe with extended periods being spent in France and Germany. Since 1999 I’ve divided my time between Canada and Europe (mainly the UK, Holland and Czech Republic).
I hope you’ll allow me to help you to get your business ideas evaluated, to get your business up and running, to get you visible on the social media sites.
