Director Business Improvement and Finance at SatNav4Business Ltd
Welcome and thank you for visiting my profile. It isn't perfect by a long way- but neither am I!
Why I joined Ecademy / Sunzu
Various people told me this was the best business based social networking site they had joined. I am looking to extend my contacts more widely and initially joined clubs/ networks in SW London, Surrey & Epsom and District
Work hard but have fun while doing so, helping others in the process. My company strap line is "Plan, Implement, Succeed" and I am passionate about this. Build my business (in Business Advice and Support / Business and Business Finance Consulting) as rapidly as possible in terms of revenue, profits and numbers of clients helped. I am also building a network of Providers and Associates who deliver services outside my core offering. This works either on a sub-contract oron a referral basis depending ion the circumstances with commission of 10% of Year 1 earnings either way. It helps to relieve the situation where a typical consultant's earnings are limited to what they can charge as an individual in billable days and allows me to offer a "one stop shop" to my clients.
I am a happy enthusiastic extrovert with power to intimidate - because of my large size and determination. I try to avoid doing this and have a voice to match. This comes in handy on occasion! A s a former banker who leftthe industry in 2006, I disclaim any responsibility for the current banking situation!
My greatest satisfactions were to see my customers grow their businesses and succeed and to see staff with whom I had worked do likewise.
Business generally, IT, Finance, Motor Caravanning ( 29 years mainly in the UK) Warbirds, Naval and Military History, Cars and Historic Commercial Vehicles, Reading, Music, Singing, visiting National Trust and other country houses, Steam Trains and Industrial Heritage, Walking, Genealogy, Service through Rotary activities, Young Enterprise.

I worked for 34 years for Barclays, the last 20 years of which were spent account managing 950 businesses, from one man bands to main stock exchange listed companies and most things in between.
The greatest value add for my customers was the experience of the what, when, why and how of business which I brought to them.
From there I entered what many would describe as the real world working for two years for a multi-national IT Services SME - in many ways a gamekeeper turned poacher.
The skill sets derived from all of this is what I live on and sell today working mainly for owner managed businesses without a full time qualified Finance Director. I help such businesses increase revenue and profitability, improve cashflow and where appropriate to put sensible financing in place. A major part of this is providing cost and time effective Business Development Planning Services using the Sightpath system (www.sightpath.co.uk/jeremy-webb ). For many people this can in part be funded under the Government's Growth Accelerator Programme . I will also help clients to prepare a proposal for and present this to their bank and/ or another Lender.
For those who want to find out more about effective Business Development Planning I provide a two hour Seminar and a full day Workshop. I am always happy to share knowledge and answer questions- there is no such thing as a stupid question only the stupidity of not asking a question that comes to mind!
