Industrial Automation Business Coach
Business Development…a Core Activity…Start-up or Established Business
“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” Peter Drucker
You can leverage my background of over 25 years in the automation industry to identify opportunities and profit. My experience includes technology development and business experience ranging from corporate experience, co-founder & president of a start-up company and as an industry consultant.
Companies regularly use outside experts to improve their results. An outside expert not directly involved in the business will bring new ideas to the table, challenge assumptions, stimulate thinking, and generally providing new perspectives. This will help you be more explicit about wrestling with trade-offs. My wide range of experience in marketing, sales, product management, and technology are available to improve the performance of your business.
“I mean it as the ability to see the world as it is, not as you want it to be.” Peter Drucker
Our goal is to generate ideas, strategies, and action plans to increase sales. I bring another perspective to your strategy…
Clarify issues & obstacles to sales growth.
Develop analysis of business issues & formulate questions that need to be answered.
Develop analysis based on my experience, knowhow, & market research where necessary.
Provide recommendations & rational for those recommendations.
Business coaching can be a little as a few hours a month depending on your needs.
