Why are we doing this?
Ever since I remember, I have always liked to create order out of chaos, simplify everything, say it in a clearer, more precise way. As my career in business development evolved, I found that using my skill of simplifying a process, defining the choices and painting a clear picture was key to my success.
When I decided to launch Your Business Development Team, I did so because I wanted to share this skill with other business owners who want to grow their business, helping them identify their growth oppertunities and acting on them.
What is business development then?
For the last 15 years I have worked with a large number of business owners who find the world of sales and marketing frustrating and confusing. I have seen the situation getting worse since the web and Social Media evolved and took centre stage. For a small business owner there is so much choice out there that growing your business has become even more time consuming, costly and confusing.
Yet you cannot give up on developing and growing your business. That is why you should consider business development because it starts from identifying your opportunities and then works backwards to identify the quickest, most effective way to get there.
How do we do it?
We practise what we preach and keep things simple and clear:
- We start with a plan…I am sure you have heard it before; how can you get there if you don’t know where are you going?
- We work with you to understand your target markets, product offering and sales process
- We go away and work out where lies your main opportunities and come up with a plan
- We then work with you to deliver and achieve this plan

I have lived in the South West since 2001 and now live in Portishead with my family. Having travelled in South East Asia and Australia I found happiness in this corner of the UK enjoying the open space and access to water in Portishead, close by to the vibrant urban environment in Bristol.
My experience within Business Development is substantial and varied including a number of key positions in G4S and Yell. In the past four years I have worked for a number of local businesses including ActionCOACH and Business Insider. This introduced me to stakeholders in the region and gave me a good understanding of the way the local business community operates. I am passionate about the region and business growth within it, thus dedicating my business to supporting and nurturing local business development.
