 About me 

Where do I fit in the market?

I am the guy you speak to if you want to grow or turnaround your business quickly.

 

What is my specific niche?

Companies who want to make a change, and actually want the work doing for them.

Who am I for?

  1. People who want to grow their business.

  2. People who want an extra pair of hands, but don't have the requirement or resource for someone full time.

  3. People who are not 100% confident in their business plan and want greater clarity.

  4. People who are thinking about an exit and want to make as much money as possible. ​

Why should you hire me?

  1. You have a particular business need you want solving.

  2. You want an option which is flexible around you.

  3. You want a low cost solution - with support starting at a single day.

  4. You want my specialist knowledge: that either that I'm really good at something, or I have access to customers, contacts or suppliers you want.

  5. You want someone you trust.

If this sounds like you, get in touch.

My name is Steve Pugh and I am Chartered Mechanical Engineer, although my talent is really in business strategy, sales and growing companies. 

 

I have two Masters degrees with additional qualifications in contract law, with experience in senior management positions for SME and plc companies in the engineering, manufacturing and offshore energy sectors. I also spent 3 years in the UK public sector.

In 2011 I invented a world-first financial fund backed by UK Government which unlocked £200m of work to North East businesses. In 2018 I wrote a business book called The Growth Strategy Roadmap™. In October 2019 I made the move to start on my own and support companies with their own growth journey.

"I am aiming to disrupt the business support industry."

Working with me is not like working with other business coaches. I get straight to the point in tackling your biggest problems.

My WHY!

 

Most consultants buy into someone else's system (often American, or more commonly a franchise). I want to build something for real businesses and real people, based around my ethics and doing what I believe is right - starting with a huge amount of information which is FREE, but then funded by companies who want hands-on support to make the change.

I don't believe the barrier to growth should ever be protectionist around information, which holds people back - especially in poorer communities.

 

In response I source the very best information from all around the world, interpret it and put my own spin on it, make it relevant, but then give it away for FREE.  

For me it's too common that consultants want big money to 'facilitate', when most people just want their problem solved. So that's what I'm doing with Growth Strategy Roadmap™.

But the other guys have 30 years experience? I acknowledge that I will be the wildcard against many established players, however put me side-by-side against anyone I will show you what I can do.

If you want someone different, someone who thinks outside the box, who innovates and is a disrupter, but importantly will make a real difference for your business, give me a call.
