Michael Hanby MBA MIoD
My area of expertise is helping business owners to develop their businesses to achieve their goals. I work with large and small organisations, and help them to develop and implement growth strategies.
I am an expert in organisational development with an MBA from one of the top providers (Open University) and a distinguished track record in both assisting businesses as a third party and being an entrepreneur myself.
I am also a member of the Institute of Directors with strategic leadership and organisational development experience, and a belief in creating success through the development of people.
I have directed a number of SMEs and have a broad range of experiences growing and managing businesses. I have worked in a variety of sectors from software development to manufacturing, event production, to B2B services. I also serve as a Governor at a local primary school.
I have spent a number of years co-creating my own business, which has successfully grown from modest beginnings in a shed to become a major brand in it's niche. During this time I have overseen the development of every area of the business including manufacture, finance, IT, e-commerce, customer service, marketing & personnel.
I have directed a number of software development projects and am an active member of the Drupal open source software community.
Previously I worked for 10 years in a medium sized service provider in the intellectual property industry where I was involved in major change initiatives in a corporate environment involving complex programme management.
