    Summary
    New and innovative business ideas need product & market validation, new customers, and valuable but scarce financial resources. I am an Entrepreneur who has successfully founded and sold three businesses. I have direct growth, operations and turn around experience in the Telecommunications, Financial Services and Cleantech markets. Entrepreneurial energy, thought and vision is often hampered by the distractions of operating a growing business. High growth potential can leak away under the daily grind of working in the business – focus and direction can easily be lost. I support the transition of innovative ideas and new product launch into profitable business success stories. Specialties: People, Leadership, sales growth, product management, pricing analysis, commercialisation of software, PV and telecommunications, change management, financial services.
