Consulting

In the last 20 years I have consulted for many different organizations that share one core value: dedication to balanced growth! They all strive to increase well-being and wealth through actions aimed at supporting local entrepreneurs and innovators in the pursuit of their dreams and visions.

In the course of this activity I have gained wide and varied experience and witnessed many different practices. In the Western Balkans, supporting the establishment of Local Economic Development Agencies. In Taiwan, assisting the most advanced technology incubators. In Senegal, supporting local actors in developing their own development strategies. In Jordan, setting up a tailored M&E system for local incubators. In Palestine, facilitating the re-modelling of the local ICT Incubator. In Armenia, working together with local actors to support the establishment of a business and innovation center. And, of course, in Europe, assessing and supporting business and innovation centres. Therefore:

I can help your organization benchmark with peers through the organization of dedicated study tours in Europe and beyond.

I can help your organization achieve optimal results when it comes to the design and delivery of entrepreneurship support programs.

I can help your team make the right decisions when assessing the potential for local economic and private-sector development.

I can help your ecosystem maximize its potential for growth.

Business support organization assessments

Are you sure your entrepreneurial services are optimal and well adapted to the needs of the entrepreneurial community you are striving to serve? Whether you are an experienced, well-established organization looking for ways to innovate your services, or a younger organization just entering the field of business support and wanting to reduce your margins of error, an external look, through a dedicated peer-review, can only be beneficial. My extensive world-wide experience in reviewing support organizations, and the dedicated quality system I managed for many years, can help you make the right decisions and put in place the right services and put you in a position to connect the dots locally, nationally and internationally.

Networks

As a “Natural Born Networker” I fully understand the power of associations of business support organizations of all shapes and forms. Networks should bring immediate benefits and added value to their members: from visibility to communication, from promotion to advocacy, from best practices exchange to mutual learning, from information to project building… Whether your organization is an experienced membership association that needs to reshape its services, or a young one planning to set up a new service offering, my extensive experience of working within networks (ILS-LEDAEBN and ECN) in key positions at the service of members is a resource you can tap to enable you to build your services while better responding to the needs of your members.
