What I Offer…

Welcome to The Yorkshire Powerhouse

Here at the Yorkshire Powerhouse I provide new-start and SME businesses with FREE advice and resources to help them make a good job of their new venture.

Our website provides hundreds of pages of independent, high quality articles on a wide range of subjects from pre-start thinking, business planning, marketing, finance, employing and growth.  Additionally, we provide a range of downloads providing resources such as business plans templates, marketing plans, SWOT & PEST sheets and cash flow forecasts.

Business plan templates

The content is 'Yorkshire' in approach ... meaning we don't hold back on being honest or blunt.

Yorkshire Powerhouse is promoted extensively on Google using pay per click advertising and this is funded by advertising partners who can sponsor pages or sections on the site to help them raise their profile with the visitors.  

We also provide equity based lending to small businesses - from £10,000 to £2m and are not controlled by banks or silly regulations.


Why I’m good at what I do…

For the last 20 years I've provided small SME and new start businesses with advice, guidance and strategic support and I'm passionate that Yorkshire businesses can be amazing - especially if they're given typical Yorkshire 'straight-talking' help in the first place.

The Yorkshire Powerhouse website provides FREE business planning templates, hundreds of pages of high quality advice and the ability to sign up to receive regular news and information that is of benefit to SME's and new businesses alike.

I also help established businesses advertise their services to small SME's and new start business owners at precisely the right time - when they're looking for help - and our rates are typically 'Yorkshire' in their structure too, being highly affordable and good value!

Things I like…

Within 4N - I'm always trying to find a balance between professionalism and being daft! Generally the daftness wins out!

In business - I love disruption and change, I enjoy studying disruptive business models and their strategies. I also adore the technical aspects of sales and marketing - creating a funnel, nurturing, squeezing and making sales growth happen by deliberate cause and effect.

I my personal life - I enjoy living! By that, I mean, getting out there and doing things - mountain biking, hiking, adventure sports, gym, swimming, etc. ... BUT, I also enjoy socialising, eating and especially drinking. My lifetime ambition is to consume more and weigh less. One of these is winning!
