Scotland West

“I’ve been Business Partnership’s regional partner for Scotland West since the summer of 2016.

“The franchise appealed to me for two reasons - I can operate the franchise alongside my existing consultancy work helping businesses to develop and grow and access start-up loans – and the role fits into my skills base.

“I was formerly national operations partner for two of the UK’s top ten accountancy and business services firms and have also operated in the business recovery and corporate finance sectors.

“My specialism is strategic management and I can also help to formalise exit strategies and source potential buyers.

“When I became a regional partner I received training from the three senior partners who provided marketing advice.

“One of the key benefits is that my fellow partners come from a wide range of backgrounds which means that sound advice is only a quick phone call or email away.

“For example, when I had a query about a valuation I called Business Partnership chairman Alistair Glaze and he was able to guide me through the situation rather than me having to do hours of research.

“I also look forward to general meetings with the other regional partners across the UK which allow us to share experiences and ideas.  

“I’m focusing more on mid-corporate businesses, which involves liaising with professional firms including accountants and lawyers. After spending 13 years working in England, I’ve enjoyed renewing some old acquaintances since my return to Scotland.

“A Business Partnership franchise is a great opportunity and a great career for the right- minded person.

“My one piece is advice to anyone considering a franchise would be to network among the business community in your area and make valuable connections – don’t sit at your desk and wait for people to call.”
