Short Bio...

Sales Director for Hire 

As an executive and experienced Sales Director, I know the demands on modern day businesses all too well. Over the last 20 years, I have been at the coal face either creating value for customers directly, or leading teams and departments doing just that.

With the stakes so high

Owners, the board, and senior leadership want, not only more wallet and profit share, they demand it today, not tomorrow! The pressure to reduce the cost of acquisition, increase average order values and remain relevant with a clear differentiation, is not only impacting the business, it's bending our product, sales, and marketing functions out of shape.

As an On-Demand Sales Director

I work with corporates and startups all the time and am adept at removing silos and encouraging cross collaboration. Experienced in implementing standardised processes and structures that work with proven skills to increase not only sales but also profitability at scale.

Advisory & Consultancy

advisory and consultancy and consultancy time for a new breed of consultant

Overview

Advisory and Consultancy. In today's business environment the rate which business leaders learn is an emerging competence. Establishing an advisory board (Learning forum) is a simple mechanism to access external wisdom, and focus learning specifically around the business and the needs of the owners(s)

We need a new brand of consultant

Why is this the case? As software advances, computers are learning to undertake increasingly complex jobs and also eliminate menial tasks. People will need other ways to earn. Yet, however, clever a robot might be, will they have the capacity to train, inspire and mentor the new breed of entrepreneur. Human interaction and social intelligence are unlikely to be replaced by robots any time soon. That doesn't mean we shouldn't change how we offer advisory and consultancy. Isn't it time we devised a new consultant model? It's actually happening right now.

Therefore, the new breed of consultant needs to be accessible

They should be prepared to roll up their sleeves and get real. Consultancy is about looking at context, time, niche and the future. There may well be lessons to learn from the past but 'one size fits all' approach has vanished. When you consider 70% of Fortune 1000 companies expecting to fail the pressure is on to deliver, to change and to maintain freshness. Like businesses generally, consultants also need, to begin with, empathy, something no robot is likely to have anytime soon.

“Incredibly insightful and focused on driving to the right outcomes within our business. Not only do we have a clearer picture where we are heading, we also have the process and accountability in place to make it happen… In short an excellent return on investment”

Interim Management

What's Up?

An Interim Manager

Can be a very effective way in resolving organisations problems, whether the need is for a change in direction, climbing out of a hole, invigorating a business or dealing with unexpected situations.

Why hire an Interim Manager?

Interim managers are used to hitting the ground running. If your company needs someone rapidly, there are few formalities required. There are no termination concerns as the project length is determined at the outset, Interim managers are usually highly experienced. Often you get 'more bang for your buck'. Results are easy to measure and interim managers know they are results driven and usually have their portfolio sharply honed to prove their worth.

Often Interim Managers will bring in a different and very welcome perspective.

They are slightly outside the organisation and will often speak their mind with impunity. Often interim managers act as consultants and workers. Most are practical and happy to be involved and overall it's far less risky and far greater agility.

"Having worked with Ron (Techventures.London) on a number of Projects now, I can say that I have zero hesitation in recommending him. Ron played a key role in helping to develop a solid go to market strategy based on the business and market requirements. Not only that but he was a fantastic help with the underpinning technologies and strategies, bringing to light issues of overly complex processes and areas that hindered agility. Rectification of these placed the business in the best possible position to succeed."
