Bob Empson

Advisor

“There’s no need for a long, turgid strategy, but you do want to be clear about your goals and how you plan to reach them. At the same time, don’t be beholden to them. As you learn more, and things change, it pays to be flexible.”

Bob helped lead – and grow – two business consultancies from scratch, before setting up his own firm in 2002. He’s worked with hundreds of clients in the UK and worldwide, developing strategies to grow their businesses. He’s a non-executive director and co-founded (and sold) a digital business.

Bob also specialises in
Strategic marketing
Organisational structure and culture
Managing change
Coaching senior execs and teams

Who Bob’s worked with
Bob’s worked with all kinds of businesses in both the UK and worldwide, national governments, charities and professional services firms. He worked with the country senior management team of a major global bank to develop the strategy that turned them into one of the most profitable countries in the bank’s portfolio.
