Sales director and Mum who led a sales team at Haymarket Publishing and now runs her own sales director practice.
firstname.lastname@example.org Entrepreneur, accountant and author of the WealthBeing guide. He built and sold his family business; created FD Solutions a flexible FD service; and is a member of the Association of Business Mentors (ABM). Here are some testimonials of his work
“I had the benefit of working with Malcolm when he was the Finance Director of a client company roughly 28 years ago. Malcolm and I reconnected some 3 years ago and I am happy to say that this reunion has been fruitful in many respects. He has helped me deal with a painful period in my past, both professionally and personally and he helped me have the confidence to enable me to regain my professional status and standing. He has helped me with setting up a new business, very much using and following the principles laid down in his excellent book “WealthBeing”. He introduced me to the right people who were willing to help and he was also extremely prescient and identified and exposed the weaknesses in the team. As it turned out, the project did not go ahead for other reasons, but the lessons learnt, through Malcolm’s hands on mentoring, have proved to be invaluable. I am fortunate enough to count Malcolm as one of a very, very few individuals who will give, selflessly and with faultless integrity, valuable opinions and insights which, if heeded, will enable you to fulfil your own personal interpretation of WealthBeing.” – Charles Warner-Allen
“Malcolm has watched the development of our business from an idea, through structuring and building, to the early stages of commercial success. He has been an extremely valuable and supportive personal sounding board throughout that time. Building a business, in any field and of any size, naturally comes with moments of self-doubt and occasional overconfidence. Malcolm has a great knack of relating those ups and downs to the lifecycle of the business and so offers just the right advice at the right time. Having someone with his experience encouraged me through the more challenging moments and his solid practical advice when momentum is building is invaluable.” – Andrew McNally, Equitile Resilience Fund
“Malcolm is a highly gifted business adviser. He combines a deep understanding of both strategy and people. He is able to blend his considerable business experience and far reaching insights together to make a powerful contribution to any company or individual he advises. What sets Malcolm apart is his ability to have a vision for potential and work around limitations, constraints and those who might thwart progress. He has the knack of working with the creative interrelationship between people, resources and processes to achieve goals. He can summarise a business in just two sheets of paper. This forensic approach allows him to see and work with business challenges in three dimensions which can lead to very powerful change. Malcolm’s passion is to see entrepreneurs succeed.” – David Eaton, SME Strategies

“I had the privilege of working with Rachael on various business projects for a number of years and she has been an amazing mentor to me. During that period I had the opportunity to see how she brought a strategic focus to my personal and professional growth. She is methodical, organised and very creative. Her ability to transfer knowledge, to connect people and her capacity to work across a variety of sectors are invaluable for a mentorship role. I recommend Rachael very highly!” – Valentina La bruzzo Qwince
“I have known Rachael for a number of years and I turn to her for mentoring advice whenever I have a new project. She is brilliant at being able to crystallise a business opportunity and enabling me to work out the best way of exploiting that opportunity ” – Stefanie Hinton – Reed SevenC3
“Rachael is one of the most connected people in the media and advertising industry and she is always a great sounding board for me for advice and support. She is always brimming with ideas and is able to give me a thorough and unbiased review of any business challenge I might be facing so I can look at it from every angle and (hopefully) come to the right conclusion. She was also one of the best bosses I have worked for in my 20-year career and always has my back.” – Jeremy King Festival of Media and M&M Global
firstname.lastname@example.org Chartered accountant and Anglican priest who ran a construction company which successfully refurbished historic buildings including Westminster Abbey. David was appointed MBE for services to the Territorial Army. David advises on strategies for owner managed SMEs and is an associate of the ABM. Here are some testimonials of his work:
“David is a great mentor. He takes a real interest in people and gives a fresh new perspective on someone’s skills and value to others. I am very grateful to him. He has a knack of looking at things from the other end of the telescope. Lots of people say they care, David actually does.” – Thomas Wells, Regional Business Manager, Aspen Waite (formerly Relationship Manager, NatWest Bank)
“I was fortunate to be given some of David’s time recently. Never having met him before, I found him very friendly, open and easy to talk to. Being in the process of setting up my own consultancy business, he gave freely of his advice based on his own experience as a finance director and business owner together with that of others he has worked with over the years. In short, his advice, some of which I have already put into practice, was sensible, practical and tailored to my circumstances. David can add real value to the businesses he supports. I am looking forward to working with David again in the months and years to come.” – Roger Evans, 360FD Services (formerly FD, Chiumento)
“David is a very talented and passion driven mentor, I had the opportunity to meet up with David at an event recently. We spoke for a while and within that limited space of time he was able to impact me with his wide range of knowledge, energy and enthusiasm. He is a solution driven man with a very good approach to guiding people, David is someone whom I would recommend as a mentor to anyone that is success driven.” – Tim Ayoola, Mechanical Design Engineer, Wilson & Partners LLP
“David has gifted me a new perspective on how I approach business matters and developing my brand. With encouragement and mentorship from a seasoned professional, he has given me the passion and knowledge to revitalise and restructure my business. He is ambitious for his clients and he has constructively challenged me. My self-belief is growing as a result. As his strap line says, it is ‘a World of New Horizons’ for me and I am excited to have David on my journey now. I don’t think David ever stops working – I’ve had emails at all hours of the day (and we Skype regularly). It is this enthusiasm of immersing himself in your business that I value and for which I thank him.” – Jay Downing, Director, ProWP.
“David brings a genuinely curious mind to your business, helping you see it through fresh eyes, question old ways and find new revenue streams. He is sensitive, personable and I felt comfortable letting him talk to staff, suppliers and my associates.” – Andrew G Marshall, Author, Marital Therapist and Director, Marshall Method Therapy.
“Sometimes in life you will know what you want when you see it and you have a very real passion to find it. However, too much passion can often get in the way and can stop you from the very thread you need to make a start. David listened to my passion for audio-visual, lighting and smart building technology and translated my enthusiasm very skilfully into a pragmatic and sensible business opportunity meeting a proven need. David’s sensitive but sharp approach to each issue enabled our very different skills to work in harmony with each other to create a fully collaborative decision-making process. He brings professionalism, creative flair and a real commitment to his clients to achieve objectives. Outside of our formal meetings, David’s friendly presence at the end of a phone is an invaluable source of welcome advice and support.” – Ian Rae, Director, MODO Solutions
