Very simple, because you either need some fresh ideas or you want to test your existing plans with an objective second opinion. My goal is to give you the maximum value in the minimum time.
As a business consultant coming from an operational background, I offer very practical and pragmatic consulting. My approach is 'down-to-earth', I try to use a jargon-free vocabulary and avoid process heavy methodologies. The scope, budget and timescale of each engagement is customised to your requirements.
Consulting is available in person close to Munich either at your office, or at mine, in Gelting, close to Geretsried. I am also pleased to offer consulting services across Germany and worldwide using e-mail, telephone and Skype.
With a career spanning 27 years in the Industrial Gases business, working for BOC and Linde, I have an intimate knowledge of this industry. I was active in all major business areas: tonnage pipeline supply, bulk process gases and packaged cylinder gases. Over that time, I spent 15 years in global strategic leadership roles and was heavily involved in acquiring and integrating business from Air Products, Airgas, AGA, Gaspro, Matheson, Praxair and Spectra Gases. I have also worked closely with Air Liquide joint venture companies. So, I have an insight into almost every major industrial gases company operating in the global arena today. For 18 years I was involved in Specialty Gases commercial, business and supply chain roles at a national, regional and global level. In the Specialty Gases product group, my expertise is probably unparalleled in terms of breadth and depth of exposure. Many of my insights have been published in a diverse range of business and industry journals worldwide. I find this industry fascinating and I would love to share my enthusiasm for this sector with you. Please get in touch and we can discuss how I might consult for you on this dynamic topic.
Longer term consulting engagements can transition to an Interim Management assignment. This can be useful if a hands-on approach is required to support change execution after the planning phase.
If you are confident that the best ideas already exist in your own mind, or in the people close to you, then coaching to convert that potential to profitable action might be appropriate. Coaching may also be suitable after an initial consulting engagement to ensure sustainable implementation.
