I offer advice, expertise, guidance and support as a food mentor to new food and drink businesses.
Through tailored, 1-to-1 mentoring programmes, I help clients develop their knowledge and deliver the solutions they need.
This includes advice and guidance to individuals or to teams. I develop programmes of work to bring new products to market or provide ad-hoc guidance and advice on:
- Brand theory
- Trends and market opportunities
- Product ideation
- Product development
- Cost modelling
- Structural packaging design and shelf life
- Brand creation
- Packaging design
- Packaging legalities and trading standards advice
- Advertising Standards compliance.
- Routes to market
- Marketing strategies
I also advise on packaging technology which is becoming increasingly important with many businesses looking for environmental solution.
My food mentor programmes are perfect for either one-off sessions or longer programmes delivered over a number of weeks and always shaped to suit individual needs.
In my non-exec roles, clients benefit from his experience, an independent perspective and a challenge to their thinking.
