Life is happening in the fast lane!

Yes, you might be surprised to find another update from me in quick succession. But life is happening so quickly, I want to make sure people know what I am up to. Also, I discovered my love for writing again! It’s not long until the summer holidays, and a well deserved break. Some of you might be thinking that I took some time off since leaving my last project, but far from it. I have been very very busy.

I took some new headshots, or should say my wife did. Hope you like them. Here is another favourite of mine, in the garden with my Buddha 🙂 Volker and the Buddha

Actually, when you are working on projects, you know when those come to an end. Sometimes you hope they get extended or last longer, and sometimes you are glad they don’t. So what have I done in the last few weeks?

I have been busy doing what I wanted to do for the past 20 years: It is easy in a way to set up a coaching business, as all you need to do is “to coach” 🙂 However, the key of being a good coach, is to position yourself and get references. There are people I have been coaching for almost 10 years, and others I have coached over the last couple of years. Given numerous qualifications and self studies, paired with my podcast and book on productivity, I have plenty of tools and experience to coach you. Soon, I hope to finalise the process and share my exact positioning with you. Focus here is key!

Whilst I am working on that side of the business, I am still in need of money. We all have our bills to pay. No project ever ends with a big payout, or a golden ticket. So I do what I do best and pitch myself to companies that want to build a presence in the UK or Europe, and need help to position their company, build initial sales, and grow their company, need business development. So if you are looking for some interim support, or a contractor/consultant to come in and give you a hand with sales, marketing or business development, corporate strategy, please let me know!

As for my own consulting business, I help Venture Capitalists (VC), Private Equity (PE) companies, HWI (High Worth Individuals), Fund Managers etc. to coach and consult with their start-ups and scale-ups.

I am a trusted pan European advisor to tech companies for positioning and strategic market development.

So that’s another way of how you can hire me. I have done that for many years, and I am very good at it, understanding the wider ecosystem, and where the tech fits. And as a VC or investors, you just don’t have enough time to do it all.

Thank you for your time reading this.

Needless to say that if you read this, liked what you read, and can think of anyone needing my gifts or talents, or you know of someone I should speak to, please reach out to me.
