Business Coach and Advisor

Need help with your business?

I know and understand how difficult it is when running a business, juggling a work-life balance, and staying focused on progression can be a huge strain.

My new business venture  is offering support for business owners in the animal care sector. I have designed a variety of pckages based on my experiene of what a good business needs.   You may feel, however, that you do not need a whole package and rather just some guidance on certain areas of your business, I can help with this too, by providing a bespoke quote and package to suit you and your needs, so please get in touch if the packages listed are not what you are looking for.

If you have already started out in business and just need some advice and guidance from someone that is able to help with the smooth running of a business, need help with growth or marketing I am able to help. I do offer business advice using skype too, these sessions are either 30 mins at £100 or 1 hour at £200.

I recently teamed up with a web designer to offer the below packages that include a website for your company. The style of website would be one chosen by yourself and the content written with information that you provide.

Professional Bodies Behavioural Advisor

As a long-standing professional in the industry, and with over a decade of experience with animal husbandry, welfare, and behaviour, I am often asked to help write, read, or give advice to other businesses and trade bodies, such as Bristol City council and PIF. My methods are scientifically up-to-date and I hold an MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour.

More recently I helped to look through a new bylaw with Bristol City council for a code of conduct for dog walkers. I am able to help with aspects of animal welfare and behaviour via telephone, skype, or face to face, the choice is yours. I am also happy to attend meetings and offer advice with welfare, behaviour, legislation, and codes of conduct.

Prices for these services vary and are available on request. Please email for enquiries.
