How Can I help You

Alongside my role as President & Chief Marketing / Information Officer at The Certificate in Online Business, I can help your organisation, on an interim or part-time basis.

Non-Executive Director / Lay Board Member
Do you need executive advice, help with strategy, impartial opinion or access to powerful contacts? As your non-executive director, I will be a non-board director acting in an advisory capacity only, and can work for you as little as 1-2 days per month. Typically, I will attend monthly board meetings to offer impartial advice. I won't be involved in the day-to-day management of your company, but I will monitor executive activities, and contribute to development strategy and performance risk. Helping your business and board connect with networks of useful people and organisations is an important function I can help with. My experience setting up and running companies, as well as helping others strategically, is useful experience I can bring to your business. Finallly, if you market my presence it will help to deliver additional trust from customers, partners, suppliers and investors. I will support you with this through my online and social media presence.  How does it work? >>
