I do this by working closely with them to implement proven sales and marketing systems that deliver the rhythmic acquisition of quality customers.

I have board level experience in start-ups, SMEs, larger corporates and not for profits. I have launched companies and brands, managed sales operations of up to 100 staff and helped develop and support many SMEs’ growth plans in the UK. I work with a number of companies as a NED or an Advisor.

Testimonials

Midge brings a wealth of sector knowledge twinned with the experience of building successful businesses from the ground up and has shared his expertise to help us across a broad range of areas including raising finance and shaping investment deals, marketing strategy, interpreting and responding to economic and market trends through to guiding our risk profile and introducing new business opportunities.

He’s approachable, calm, commercially savvy and supportive – all essential qualities in an advisor, particularly in a demanding & frenetic start up – and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

JOE  |  HIRING DISRUPTOR & FOUNDER  |  FUSED4

Midge has been working with me and the wider Grey Matter team and has been instrumental in helping us shape our brand proposition, values and a best-in-class customer experience. With huge experience and knowledge of our sector, I have no hesitation recommending Midge to any fast-growing business looking to better understand their own business.

RODNEY   |   MANAGING DIRECTOR   |   GREY MATTER

Elite Leaders has been a great resource for me. They make me feel like an ‘insider’ and help me with the tools I need to run a successful recruitment business. I consider the leadership team, including Midge and John, to be friends and great mentors.

MIKE  |  MANAGING DIRECTOR  |  REPRESENT

Midge joined us in a NED capacity  at a time of change within the business. He brought a focus and accountability to senior leadership that helped steer us into a new era with significant improvements and results. He put the pillars in place for us to grow our existing client base through account enhancement and growth. One of the key takeaways and process that we still use today, was the business development strategy. We created a process that was aligned to today’s market not solely focusing on unnecessary KPI actions but working through a touch point strategy that was rolled out and has helped to develop some of our best recruiters to date.

From a personal perspective Midge is very easy to work with , open to new ideas and a great sounding board. 

ARRAN  |  MANAGING DIRECTOR  |  INTAPEOPLE

Midge has worked with me for a few years now, initially with one of my other businesses where he helped us set a growth strategy with a focus on sales and marketing. He helped us develop and implement client acquisition plans with clear objectives, targets, and measures. He now supports the Applied Business Academy, a provider of professional IT Qualifications and Digital IT Apprenticeships across London. Midge is one of our board members and has a focus on business development and growth for the Academy. He brings practical advice and proven methodologies s to the company, helping us attract and enrol new students and education partners.

 

RAJ REDDY  |  CEO  |  APPLIED BUSINESS ACADEMY

We have worked with Midge for 2 years now, using him to advise on how to attract and win customers for our MRI scanning service. He helped us design and implement customer attraction processes to drive increased web traffic and conversion rates. He introduced tried and tested sales and marketing systems to give us more consistency and control. We now know the key numbers for our business and what activities need to happen each month to achieve those. 

Midge works with me monthly to ensure the business is on track and to help with future business development. We have grown threefold in the last 2 years and are set for a record year in 2021.
