Broaden

I am the founder of Broaden a management consultancy specialising in improving profitability through embracing better business practice. Inspired by working alongside a number of retail gurus including Sir Philip Green and influenced by the entrepreneurial spirit, I decided in 1994 to take the leap of faith into the unknown of self employment and formed a management consultancy specialising in telecommunications and IT. Broaden is an independent cost reduction strategy consultancy helping clients leverage top level sector expertise & up-to-the-minute market knowledge to deliver huge cost savings and efficiency improvements. For the big picture about Broaden, take a look at the "Big Picture" I created to explain the business in ten minutes.

Ecademy

Up until March 2008 when growth in my other business commitments meant I could no longer offer it the time the role required, I acted as VP Commercial Development for Ecademy, an integral part of the Ecademy Management team, responsible for commercial development, strategic alliances, advertising and sponsorship I built the marketplace where the 350,000 worldwide users are able to trade. I met Thomas Power in 1999 when I booked him to do a presentation to a user group of large companies I was doing some consultancy for, he was banging on about community first and commerce second and it struck a chord. I joined Ecademy in early 2000 - as I built my business I watched Ecademy's growth with interest. I became a Power Networker and became active in May 2003, developed a business plan, agreed a deal and set about building Ecademy Marketplace. 7,196 emails and 354 face to face meetings later we launched on Thursday 11 November 2003 at 17.30 with 133 suppliers, and have been through a number of changes & developments, culminating in MarketStar, a brand new subscription level which launched on 6 May 2005. The new Marketplace was much more successful than we imagined and added massive value to Ecademy membership. In order to deliver the additional value to even more members, from 1st December 2005, all of the benefits of MarketStar membership with its full access to the Ecademy Marketplace were rolled into the PowerNetworker™ level of membership.

Just to sum up...

Broaden Corporation act as an agent matching buyers and sellers by leveraging years of experience and our extensive contact base, forming a number of joint venture agreements, specialising in property, construction and land development and infrastructure and other investments globally.

Broaden won Partner of the Year from Cable & Wireless 2005. Ecademy is a Social Network for Business People founded in 1998 now with hundreds of thousands of users worldwide.
