With extensive experience in a variety of industries, I recognise the need for businesses to evolve and effect change effectively and successfully in order to progress and realise commercial goals.

Pragmatism, teamwork and financial focus - but not financial dominance - are tenets and principles that I work to.

 

A specialist in identifying strategic direction, I act as a catalyst for change

and its implementation.

 

I can act as a Consultant or as a Non-Exec Director.

I began my business consultancy practice in 2002 and since then have guided and advised many business clients through challenging and changing times.

 

I have a strong financial background (FCMA qualified) and with a wide range of management experience I've assisted, influenced and guided many business leaders to bring their teams together so that they point in the same strategic direction.

 

I will advise and support teams in the implementation of the strategy resulting in successful delivery.

 

I influence transformation and turnaround leading to more effective team performance resulting in improved profit and cash generation.

 

 

Why Ian Guyler?

  1. Bringing people together to deliver success -Teams frequently work in silos, which can be counterproductive.

    I know how to bring them together

  2. Establishing strategic direction  -Teams / Owners / MD’s / businesses can get cluttered mixing strategy with every day delivery.

    I can unravel this, simplify and put it into context

  3. Financial focus, not financial dominance - Businesses need to make a profit, generate cash and deliver value to the owners and their customers.

    I create this focus but within the context of commercial necessity and operational reality

  4. Guiding, delivering, coaching and mentoring -  A business’s success is ultimately about the people and how they “get it”.

    I can guide and catalyse choosing the “right arrows from the quiver” to galvanise the team

  5. Resolving disputes...

    Working with many businesses in many situations has brought experience in disputes and I have become adept as resolving shareholder and family disputes which, if unsettled, can threaten the business

  6. And, talking of catalysts…

    I catalyse change relentlessly but in a low key way, helping to drive implementation

    I am hugely well connected which is invaluable when planning the best services to bring in and also in terms of business development
