Self description

Male , 40

I'm a director with JumpStart for Business - a business start-up advice company who provide a unique service in the business support sector.

We find Clients with spare desks to rent and place Entrepreneur's their to encourage Trade and to provide a new revenue stream for companies. Providing entrepreneurs a great start to their business.

I have worked as a Partner in a Global IT and Management Consultancy and worked for blue chip consultancies throughout my career.

I love the move into start-up advice building on my skills in consultancy.

I have 1 daughter who is 7 which takes up a lot of my time and my Partner and I split our time between London and Newcastle.

We started JumpStart in the North East as that is where our main roots are but we would love to help companies all around the UK and further afield when the time is right.

Life experiences

IT and Management Consultancy

I've worked as Partner in a Global IT and Management consultancy so I know a thing or too about a wide range of topics.

I used to advise senior IT/Business managers on technology strategy.

Test you business ideas

I think I can bring pragmatic, real world experience to your business or idea. I love to stress test ideas and help to come up with strategy or a sales and marketing plan.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I want to meet and discuss ideas with people and make sure you dont repeat the same mistakes of others in business. I can help you get a great start in business or test out your ideas and give pragmatic guidance and advice. I love working on large complex problems and researching the latest thinking and strategies - if you want to tap into my experience then get in touch.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
