Being in business can be isolating and working alongside a coach or mentor can give you an invaluable sounding board to help plan and address challenges, identify customers and clients, be held accountable for your actions, accelerate decisions and work out your strategy. Think of me as a member of your team who has lots of experience and insights that can help you find business ease & success. From marketing and managing people to confidence and communciation, I have been fortunate enough to work with some amazing businesses and can bring these insights to help you. I have lots of practical business experience as co founder and co owner of Papadeli, a deli, caterer and cookery school in Bristol (established 20 years ago) and Jones & Modha a sophisticated natural perfume for people who value beauty and sustainability. I have worked with SMEs and sole traders at start up, scale up through to exit in food, tech, medical, creative, finance, construction, planning, services (recruitment, legal etc) amongst lots of others.
