What I Offer…

I offer business consultancy services across all industries, but my specialist area is textiles.

I also offer a mentoring service to small business owners and start-ups, providing:

  • support and guidance;
  • practical advice; and
  • hands-on help.

Sometimes we just need a bit of help, to see the wood for the trees - especially if we're keeping a lot of plates spinning, and juggling a lot of tasks at the same time, as most small business owners do - and to prioritise the tasks which we don't get around to doing. And sometimes, there simply isn't enough time to deal with those non-urgent tasks which don't have to be done today, but which we know will help us in the long run, if only we had another pair of hands in the business.

I am offering you that spare pair of hands. And when you need practical assistance from someone who can take on a project and complete it on your behalf, I can offer that too.

My specialist areas are strategic planning and consultancy projects related to:

  • sales;
  • marketing (B2B);
  • communications; and
  • "seeing the bigger picture".

I am an accredited mentor with the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurship (IoEE).

I also have 35 years of experience working in a wide variety of small businesses.

Why I’m good at what I do…

Client testimonials:

"Belinda is very approachable and enthusiastic. Our online meetings have encouraged us to think more strategically about the business and assess our priorities. She encourages us to put them into practice. Already, better planning and time management has allowed us to become more focussed and take control of out time. We are confident we can develop and grow with Belinda’s knowledgeable advice and encouragement.”

"Belinda came in to my life like a breath of fresh air - she mentored me on my start up and gave me clarity and insight on how to deal with various issues. She was quick to understand my needs and skilfully pushed me in the right direction. I hope to keep interacting with her in the future."

Things I like…

As a person, and as a business mentor and consultant, I enjoy helping people - often volunteering at sports or community events and charity fundraisers.

I also love working with small businesses. They can be so innovative, and they can demonstrate such agility and quick reactions - turning on a sixpence when an opportunity presents itself.

I have two grown-up daughters - whom I often refer to as my role models. Just a wee bit proud of them! And when I am not working, I enjoy hiking, running, and singing.

Finally, if you're still with me ... here's a little poem about a smile, which makes me happy. I hope you like it too!

Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu.
When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin,
When they smiled I realised I'd passed it on to them

I thought about that smile
Then I realised what it's worth:

A single smile,
Just like mine,
Could travel round the earth!

So if you feel a smile coming,
Don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic, quick!
And get the world infected.
