How 796 people can fund 1 business... New article published on Linkedin today
This is the average number of investors (or individual lenders) it takes to fully fund a single crowdfunding business loan. Think about it. That is 796 people who want to see you succeed. Running your own business or any small enterprise can be a lonely experience, so having 796 supporters give ...

The Tata story. The values set down by this company would embarrass some CSR policies of other major companies! Makes you think whether this is the right way to run a business.

+Charlie Lloyd is this one to quote when writing new HR policies?
+Lime Consultancy 
Tata, the Indian company that owns Tetley Tea and Jaguar Land Rover, is 66% owned by charities - its unique character was shaped by its founder Jamsetji Tata and his successors.

Lawyer asks Kenny Dalglish about the hooliganism at Hillsborough, of his view more crowd trouble that day. Why? This was answered already, it is about police covering up what really happened. Blaming the fans cannot be a defence any more, are we really still trying to blame the victims? #justiceforthe96 #hillsborough

Story
Tagline
Less hair than I used to have, not much taller
Introduction
Father of a teenage girl (frightening stuff..) married to Bren and living in Crawley.

I run my own commercial finance and small business advisory company.

Former Bank Manager who saw the light and decided that some businesses actually need more than someone that just says no.

My downside is that I always, always, get stopped by airport security no matter whereabouts in the world I am. I claim to have been stopped and searched more times than anyone I have ever met.

Notwithstanding the above, I am an honest and professional person. I run Lime Consultancy, which advises businesses on how to best finance their development. This includes all aspects of business funding from property development to cashflow. I have a particular interest in crowdfunding.

I can often be found at 4N networking meetings, usually turning up for breakfast and a natter with anyone willing to listen.

For my sins I am a Tottenham supporter, so years of pain and disappointment actually fit very well with a career in banking. Away from the hurt that Spurs bring, I enjoy walking Harry the dog, especially when it involves popping into the Royal Oak for a pint on a summers evening.

Fantastic property experts. Am happy to say I have worked with Consult Build for a number of years, their expert view on property, advice and insight has been hugely valuable. For property developers, companies seeking property or anyone seeking planning advice then fully recommend their professional service.

Have worked with PRB collaboratively for several years. The thing that comes through is how highly their clients talk about them, it is this that makes us recommend them to our clients.
