Profile

Bob offers a consistent track record of SME business growth and recovery in competitive markets using the techniques described in his book ‘Boosting Sales: Increasing Profits Without Breaking the bank’.

With an engineering background in electronic systems design he has operated and owned his own businesses since 1991 and consolidated his many experiences of real-world business swings and roundabouts with an MBA in business management and fellowship of the Chartered Institute of Marketing. Bob divides his time between his various business interests, including Old St. Andrews which exports the distinctive whisky and definitive Pink 47 gin brands and Hard Hat Business Advice. Hard Hat specialises in helping owner managed businesses to grow profitably and safely. Bob says: “Your business is not a job, it is an investment that should provide you with a good return in exchange for the risks of owning it and there is no reason why any business should fail if these risks are properly managed.”
