I have various qualifications, but experience at the coal face of an SME is what I find really counts when it comes to the day to day of running a business from start up to exit.
Check me out on LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/deborahlabbate/

With a straightforward, no nonsense approach I work with business owners and their teams to drive growth using the tried, tested and proven ideas I've worked with myself. Through a fusion of business advice, mentoring, sometimes coaching, and occasionally rolling my sleeves up to help you get a job done!

I've successfully exited from one business and under some distress from another.
It's all gone in the experience pot and I would be pleased to share this with you.

I've often been called a confidante, or a critical business friend and sometimes a 'Secret Weapon'.
It really doesn't have to be lonely at the top!
I know what that can feel like - I've been there!

My blend of skills and practical business experience could be just what you need to improve the bottom line in your business.

An initial chat costs nothing and could be just what you need!

Key skills:
Business management
Facilitator of change management
Working and operational efficiencies
Financial management
Extraordinarily diplomatic and tactful
Highly experienced networker and influencer

Some might say soft skills.
I say essential skills in a world of hard business.
Networking strategy
Presentation skills
