Building a business is not easy. If you think it is, you're already in trouble.
I have spent the last 15 years of my life building businesses, watching other people build businesses, working in business and learning about the latest trends and tools that influence businesses.
I have failed a lot. I have succeeded a little and more than anything I have gained a deep insight and appreciation for the drive and determination it takes to build anything at all.
When I work with businesses my focus is on their digital capabilities, the core strategy in the business driving growth and to provide perspective to the entrepreneur on the frontline.
You can't read the label from inside the bottle.
Over and above everything else, I'm an entrepreneur. But I am also a writer, a speaker and a consultant.

What You Can Expect
I'm brutally and unapologetically honest in business and in life. I don't pull any punches and wont bullshit you. If we can make things better, we will. If I can't help you then I'll tell you exactly that and point you to someone who might be able to.
I only work with the best partners and tools available to provide the most relevant solution to you and your business.
COMPANIES I'VE WORKED WITH
I bring a fresh and brutal level of honesty to the stage. I am not a trend specialist who has never been at the frontline of innovation. I have failed dismally and lived to learn the lesson and tell the story. On stage I have high energy and deep insights that are presented in a way that allows the audience to engage, learn and share their ideas and experiences.
The first thing I remember writing was a letter when I was 7 years old. Ever since that day, I am most comfortable expressing myself through my writing.
I am a columnist for Entrepreneur Magazine, I have written for the Financial Mail, Sunday Times and various other publications in my career.
The first business I built was a band that failed. I was 18 and we were clueless. Since then I've started numerous businesses with varying success.
There was a freelance writers network, a student news portal, a social network, a mobile social network builder and most recently a style company that started as a sock company called Nic Harry.
Over the past ten years I have worked with a variety of people who have helped me to gain insight into running a business and building out digital capabilities. Transitioning your business into the world of digital can be tricky, especially if you are a retailer trying to grow your ecommerce. I've been through the tools, the tough times and the hard lessons which means I can help you through them. Let's talk.
