WHY FINDING SUITABLE BUSINESS HELP IS AN ISSUE FOR CONTRACTORS
General coaches don't get how tough the sector is.
They don't get how slim the margins are.
They don't understand the relationships between all the parties.
They believe, their "tick boxes" are the silver bullet you need.
They have never worked on a site & got their boots muddy.
IS WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR:
Someone who knows the industry inside out?
Has a practical approach?
Can use construction terms in the right places?
Has led businesses through boom and bust?
Has developed systems that work consistently?
And knows key people in the industry?
Started out as a graduate civil engineer, setting out, working on civils projects in the UK and overseas. Returned to the UK to do a spell in the design office.
Progressed from site engineer to project manager building hospitals, schools, retail, industrial, rail, residential and offices.
Gained an MBA and Fellowship of the CIOB.
Progressed into management overseeing frameworks & finally became an area director for 10 years, where I secured £400m of work using the Smart tender pricing method.
Since 2015 I have been helping SME's overcome their business issues and grow, often finding grant support to help with fees and new IT systems.
Along the way have acquired a wide network of valuable contacts.
THERE IS MORE TO IT THAN PRICE.
Whilst the right price is the first step in making a profit there will be other issues which can be a drag on making a profit and should be optimised;
Deciding the organisation structure
Managing the supply chain
Managing the staff
Deciding what to delegate
Managing cash flow
Dealing with contracts
Working out a growth plan
I have experienced all these issues and more, so can develop a bespoke plan for you to resolve them without spend a lot of time trying to resolve for yourself.
Why reinvent the wheel?.
If you want to:
Avoid unprofitable projects
