Hello, I'm Tim Boutle, Business Consultant, Business Coach and NED based in Cambridge. I'll help improve and grow your organisation.
I assist leaders of organisations in Cambridge, East Anglia and further afield by helping them increase profitability, work less hours and reduce headaches!
As a Cambridge Business Consultant and Coach my wish is to inspire leaders and their teams to thrive. I also enjoy creating a better environment in which to work and do business. Clients include those who are motivated to improve and increase profitability. And also owners that potentially want to spend less time in their business. I act as a catalyst for you and your team members utilising 4 key areas: In Suffolk
Developing a business can be hard work and involve major challenges. I know because I’ve been there and still have the scars! My clients generally run good, profitable businesses, but realised they could be a whole lot better. So, at that stage they made a conscious decision to introduce a third-party perspective.
I’ve over 20 years’ experience in buying, developing and selling businesses.
This has provided me with essential grounding as a Business Consultant, Business Coach and NED. It means I don’t just rely on idealistic theory, because I’ve actually been there and done it. Surprisingly, the majority of Business Consultants and Business Coaches out there cannot say the same. It is this experience that I draw on for my clients.
Imagine having an experienced third-party confidant to challenge your habits and thinking. Then contributing to your organisation with an unbiased, independent and honest view, it brings huge value. Frequently, implementing simple tweaks that you haven’t thought of (or perhaps haven’t been disciplined enough to implement!) will result in increased efficiency and profitability. As a result, this will increase the value of your company.
As a Business Consultant I tend to see the same issues again and again…
Good businesses must have robust foundations, defined systems and a motivated team in place.
In addition, proactive long and short-term planning is essential for growth and minimises growing pains.
Since starting my career as a Business Consultant most of the challenges I’ve seen would fall under at least one of 4 key drivers. Time, Team, Money & Operations. This can make a business stressful to own. Insufficient business planning will likely result in a team with little direction and lacking engagement. Profits may be sliding and as a result, you may have financial worries. Systems may be broken (or non-existent!), resulting in mistakes which can lead to bad feeling. Delivery may be inconsistent and hence, customers unimpressed. Perhaps your time could be spent more productively? Inevitably this will all be holding you back and eventually may cause something to snap. As a result, over two thirds of businesses cease trading within their first 10 years. And we don’t want this to be you!
If this sounds like your organisation then I, as your Business Consultant, can help. Because I am your catalyst to change.
So why don’t we start here: Take a look around the site and perhaps watch my quick introduction video at the top of the page. It’ll give you a good idea of what we’d do and how we’d work together.
Then get in touch using the call-back form below and we can arrange an informal 30 min video or phone call. I’d love to hear from you. This is your first step to making that change and achieving your goals. Life is too short for regrets……isn’t it?
Please don't hesitate to send a message - I'll get back to you as soon as I can
