I help leaders and organisations add more value, to drive business growth.

"Joel is a respected leader and professional. He has been involved in coaching and mentoring entrepreneurs and supporting corporate firms for a long-standing period and his proven track record proves that." Gianluca Lauri, BDL, DowJones

PROGRAMMES

I design Peer to Peer development programmes, interactive workshops and collaborative training for Senior Management, Aspiring Leaders and Entrepreneurs.

All programmes are highly interactive, with outcomes tailored to the bespoke needs of every client.

PUBLIC SPEAKING

I speak regularly through keynote talks, motivational speaking and guest lecturing on business growth, diversity and entrepreneurial leadership.

I have delivered TEDx talks, been hired to speak by global organisations, through to the higher education sectors, alongside judging a number of national business programmes.

CONSULTING

I provide Business Advisory & Consultancy services, focused on business support strategy, leadership development and unlocking commercial growth.

Clients to date have included the BBC, Essentra PLC, GBSLEP among many other cross-sector brands and organisations.

The modern, global and digital world of business requires high growth potential companies to be more innovative, in order to fuel growth. But existing business support services and programmes are failing to meet the fast-changing needs of these businesses, and are often constrained by a lack of real-life practical business experience, increased legislation, traditional cultures, and a reliance on public funding.

I am a multi-award-winning businessman, professional speaker and leadership consultant, specialising in Business Support and Enterprise development. I have over 15 years experience of running my own businesses and in helping other business owners to run their own.  In business, I have succeeded, failed and everything in between yet I am grateful for all lessons learned along the way!

I use my experience to help business support organisations create, implement and innovate their own business and enterprise support services, on a regional, national and on a global scale.

My love for technology has also led me to create GFA Exchange, an award-winning AI technology company supporting the financial lending and wealth management markets, and I am a co-founder of The Ark Hub, a co-investment fund

I am also Vice-President of the Commonwealth Chamber of Commerce and I enjoy giving back as the Non-Executive Director of two companies.

I’m a face to face kind of guy, so why don’t we meet for a mint tea and chat? Feel free to scroll down to the bottom of this page, fill in the form and I’ll be in touch!

Speak soon, JB.
