SEIS allows you as a company seeking finance to significantly reduce the exposure that investors have if all goes wrong. It also makes the incentives if all goes well much greater. It means that when you pitch to investors, it becomes a lot easier for them to take the risk of investing in you and it is one of the most generous tax breaks HMRC has given to companies seeking finance ever.


This video explains why SEIS is so great for qualifying companies seeking finance:


If you qualify for SEIS and you don't go through the 3 steps outlined here, you have made your job of raising finance a lot harder. You also significantly reduced investors potential returns and increase their exposure unnecessarily if you don't qualify your company. .

Diving horses...


Leaping from as high as 60 feet (the impact of which on one occasion blinded the rider), used to be a popular seaside attraction. This photograph was taken in Atlantic City at the Steel Pier where horse diving finally came to an end in 1978.


What bizarre business practices are you still running... ?


You can look at this photo in horror or disgust, but I ask you, how are you reviewing your practices and day to day routines within your business?


What have you stopped doing, what are you looking at introducing, which ones work and which ones are you hanging onto.


It takes courage to change,


It takes balls to be open to an out side perspective, most of my clients tell me I wish we had started 18months ago....

If you are thinking about moving your business forward and are considering options, please feel free to contact me for a meeting, I would be delighted to sit with you and go though some of the options my clients have said works for them.


Call me on 0208 1236 617 I look forward to speaking with you.

Fast fashion!




Your business may not be in the fashion sector, but...


How can disciplines and principles from outside your

market help your business.


In my view by studying "game changers" such as

Zara you can apply or adapt the lessons to give your

business a competitive advantage.


One, knock on effect is that your customer/clients

will further value your product and service,

thus increasing life time value.


Competitive advantages can come from anywhere!


So be on the look out!


For ideas on how you can become a game changer

in your business, give me a call to discuss.


Professor Felipe Caro describes dynamic assortment

and inventory allocation models for fast fashion.


This 8.30min video is very insightful.

Jacque Fresco - A true visionary...


The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity

that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture.

There are many people today who are concerned with the

serious problems that face our modern society:

unemployment, violent crime,

replacement of humans by technology,

over-population and a decline in the Earth's ecosystems.




The Venus Project London Lecture - October 2009 - Part 1 of 2

from The Zeitgeist Movement on Vimeo.


As you will see, The Venus Project is dedicated to confronting

all of these problems by actively engaging in the research,

development, and application of workable solutions.

Through the use of innovative approaches to social awareness,

educational incentives, and the consistent application of the best

that science and technology can offer directly to the social system,

The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation

in which human beings, technology, and nature will be able

to coexist in a long-term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium.
