Change Your Career  Change Your Life


Use your years of experience to achieve success on your terms.

Business ownership can be an attractive option to senior corporate professionals who are looking to transition out of corporate life into a new and rewarding career. The dynamics of a Partnership under a trusted brand can be very similar to those found in a corporate environment except one primary difference: you’re the captain of your own ship.

Business Acceleration - Get on the Right Track


The last few weeks have been unprecedented, to a degree, but disruption happens all the time in today’s fast moving, technology led markets – the key is how you deal with these disruptions.  We have been very active across the lockdown period and we are now offering our expertise to new clients to enable them to negotiate the choppy waters ahead and come through them successfully. The only businesses to succeed, for sure, are those that demonstrate flexibility, agility and show initiative. There will be big winners and sadly big losers. This initiative gives your business the best chance of being a big winner.

From August 1st 2020 for a short period we are offering a limited number of one day strategic review and planning sessions for clients and potential future clients involving a Tinderbox expert with real experience in your market and sector. Someone who has ‘worn the tee shirt’ and celebrated true business success in good and bad times. This review and planning exercise will ensure that, at the conclusion of it, you have:

  1. A clear and fresh Vision of where you are going to take the business (or options to consider)
  2. Knowledge of what needs to be done within your business (and with your people) to start you on that journey
  3. A comprehensive written plan that illustrates the steps you need to take on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to make the plan a reality.

The Review Includes:

  • A three hour session with you and your key management managed and facilitated by your own Tinderbox Expert to map out a clear vision for the business – i.e. where are we going/ what new routes do we need to consider/ take?
  • A clear path, mapped out, on what changes are necessary to get you from where you are now to where you want to get to
  • Who does what, when, where in that process? Defining clear accountabilities and responsibilities
    Specification of the next steps and an Action Plan that all can follow
  • Monthly follow up telephone calls to track progress for three months from your own Tinderbox expert to discuss and assist with progress

Achieving Excellent Outcomes

We facilitate this session in full and ensure that we get input and contribution from all involved. We compile a full report and action plan at the end of it giving you a programme and solid base to work from and ongoing support too. The investment for this work is £2,000 plus VAT. We only have the expert resource to carry out 100 of these sessions in August so places are limited. The sessions can be carried out in your premises if considered safe to do so, or via a video facility (Zoom). If the latter, we set that up and invite all of the attendees that you require at the meeting from your team and manage the whole process. In either case we facilitate, control and manage the whole session ensuring that your business and your people get the most from it.

To book your strategic review event with us click the button below and Register. We will come back to you and confirm a date. Alternatively get in touch with me direct at the contact numbers below. We fully expect these sessions to be booked up by mid-July so, if you are interested, please register that interest as above or contact us as soon as possible.

Tinderbox Academy

Introducing Tinderbox Academy!

As small business owners you face challenges every day and can overcome a significant number of them. There is also support available from different bodies that often comes in the shape of a generic ‘one size fits all’ solution – the problem is, often that solution isn’t the right one for your business.

These challenges don’t go away on their own and sometimes you just can’t resolve them. You also may have your own business improvement ideas that you need some specific, skilled advice on, or challenges within your business that need addressing but you just can’t find a way of sorting it alone.

While there is often the right level of expertise and experience out there, it usually comes at a price beyond your budget.

The Tinderbox Academy has solved that problem.

At Tinderbox, we have decades of real business experience amongst our team of more than 100 Regional Directors and business experts. We have a 100% success rate with the businesses we work with and now toy can have access to our team.

We have created a solution that means any business can access our much valued expertise whatever size.  Over the last decade we’ve helped hundreds of businesses become more successful, and now, for the first time ever, you can find and use your own Tinderbox expert to help drive your business forward, for less than the price of a cup of coffee per day!

About Us

Not Your Typical Consultant

Our core offer focuses on providing expert advice, support and involvement in all core business disciplines. Our multi-disciplined and practically experienced team possesses a wide range of business experience and subject expertise spanning all market sectors. As a result of this we can always ensure we bring in the most appropriate Tinderbox expert, with relevant market and subject matter experience, to meet your specific challenges. We resolve them with practical advice that works and transforms performance. We then help transfer any skills necessary to ensure your organisation continues to benefit from our support whilst moving into your future, better state.  All this helps drive your business success.

Well Deliver the Value We Promise and That You Expect

For you this might mean faster progress to increased business value, lower costs, improved cash flow and higher revenues. This can help you achieve new goals, penetrate new markets, create successful mergers or simplify legacy systems and emerging technologies alike.

At Tinderbox, We Have a Team of Experts to Help You

We’ll not only advise you on what you could be doing differently, but, if required, become part of the team delivering the answer. We can help you make better decisions, reduce costs, build a more effective organisation and develop appropriate technology strategies.

We start by understanding your organisation: your operation, the competitive dynamics, your culture, objectives and challenges. By seeing the world the way you do we apply our insights to your specific strategic and operational issues. However, our team’s culture of curiosity, innovation and reinvention means that your current thinking will be challenged – with a distinctive point of view.

Our team of Regional Directors all have years of experience operating at strategic management levels within large organisations. As well as this vast experience we have accumulated more than 150 subject matter experts, spread across the United Kingdom, who will be brought in on a project-by-project basis to deliver the precise expertise you require. This model and network means our capability is very broad across industries and types of projects.

Get to Know Us Better

Why Are We Different?

Firstly and crucially, each of our team has operated in real businesses themselves at a senior and strategic decision-making level. They have all created and implemented business strategies and improvement programmes so have real-life experience and affinity with your challenges.

Through our specialist Regional Director network and our UK-wide team of more than 150 subject experts, we introduce the appropriate individual for the specific business challenge presented by each customer and, through our extensive business experience, ensure that the advice and support given is both practical and implementable. And the Regional Director doesn’t disappear once the project is underway, they’ll be working alongside you right from the outset until the project is complete and evaluated and delivers you a great ROI.
Our many years of experience help our clients make significant progress and achieve results previously believed to be ‘out of reach’, whilst passing on to our client’s team the necessary skills to sustain this development on an ongoing basis.
