Looking for a business consultant?

Clear Ideas is a consultancy that brings real-world
experience to support leaders of SMEs in growing their
people and organisations.

Why?

“Thanks for the chat yesterday Nick; I have a really clear idea about what to do next.”

And that was how it started, an hour with a friend and business owner. I lent her my ears, we worked out a simple plan and I received this grateful message the next day.

I really liked how those two words sounded: clear idea.

 

Why?

Clear

This expression was the starting point for me. Having worked for 16 years in a start-up, growing it to a multi-million-pound position (and then gradually admitting I was falling out of love with it), I created Clear Ideas to solve a problem that I came across from Day One of my business journey:

Finding someone with real business experience who had encountered the everyday problems that I was facing and was prepared to listen, understand and help me work through those problems objectively.

Ideas

I look for people who love what they’re doing and yet find themselves a bit stuck, just like I was in the early days.

Together we look at current challenges and the  ones that might come along down the road.

Ideas

Services

My experience is focused on the areas of business that I enjoy most:

Process

I use a very simple outcome-based framework:

1.

Ask
great
questions

2.

Listen
and
understand

3.

Partner
and
plan…

4.

Agree,
action,
track

Who?

PS: It’s not all work.

You’ll often find me in my home town of Brighton, on the beach with my kids (weather permitting). I’ll be dreaming of snow-covered Alps or gabbing on about my love of history to anyone who’ll listen.
