I'm passionate about supporting people to develop and grow their ideas and passions into sustainable and flourishing community enterprises. Through demystifying the more technical aspects of business planning I believe groups can effectively create empowering and democratic organisations that in turn nourish their local communities and inspire further positive change in the world around them.
