If the idea of using an IT management consultant, mentor or leadership and management coach is a bit daunting, don’t worry. I’m friendly, practical and won’t ever do anything chargeable without your prior clear agreement. Most of what I do is fixed price and, as I’m approved for many of the government support schemes, I can often get you grant funding to help pay for what I do e.g. Growth Accelerator, Growth Vouchers etc.
