Hence, I selectively only partner with businesses, Individuals and organisations committed to fostering trust, integrity and collaboration.

Partnerships

My passion for Partnerships stems from my firsthand experience, having delved into the intricacies of the franchise business model during my tenure as a Business Consultant for Subway UK. Witnessing its dynamic nature from within, I developed a profound admiration for the resilience and scalability inherent in partnerships and franchising. 

 

Since my Subway days as a Business Consultant, I've actively contributed to the setup of both Independent and Branded franchises/partnerships, leveraging my insights to guide and support aspiring entrepreneurs. A significant highlight of my franchising journey was being among the first pioneers to launch the IWG Plc/Regus Franchise in the UK. Disrupting the Flex-space market and "changing the world of work".

 

This experience not only underscored my commitment to fostering business growth but also positioned me at the forefront of innovative franchising ventures, solidifying my dedication to collaboration.
