Tony & Carolina’s wedding October 2011
Just like marriage, strategic business planning is a very important activity.
Tony’s approach to strategy is distinctive as it is very much that of being a “Cunning Plan” (Blackadder).
Tony is happy to do a value added, short taster session of his strategic tools for you and colleagues interested in programmes. He can also do a similar session for diagnosing key issues with these tools, and his “Strategy Audit ” checklists, as a taster of the strategic consulting or coaching process.
His role is to demystify Strategic Thinking and help executives to “be their own strategy consultants”.
