Tony Webster



Often SMEs get stuck! What has always worked is not working anymore, resulting in stagnant or no growth, with profits and enthusiasm reducing. Markets maybe shrinking, competitors more active, margins under pressure and you're struggling to see a way forward, to see a new alternative model or method. Viewing the situation as a threat, rather than a challenge and the opportunity that it really presents. The new good news is that there is a way forward and I can help you find it.
