Paul Freedman

Paul’s passion is helping owners and leaders of businesses achieve their goals. He understands them because he has owned and run a business almost all of his working life – in fact, since he was 14 years old!

Paul specialises in facilitating Business team meetings, Board meetings and Business Planning sessions.

Paul’s style is down to earth, focused and practical.  The areas covered often include:

  • What do we believe in?
  • What’s working/not working today?
  • Where are we heading in future?
  • What does that journey look like?
  • Which routines and disciplines can we put in place to make sure that we get traction and don’t stray.

His favourite question is “So What?”.

Paul was previously the MD for one of Dyson’s newest product divisions and was spent 6 years as CEO of the AiM listed company he founded and IPO’d on AiM in 2004.  Paul spent 9 years as Commercial Director in his family’s textile business, after completing his graduate training in Corporate Finance at Citigroup.

  • “a very rare knack of seeing right to the heart of things and coming up with commercially sound yet creative solutions”
  • “I can wholeheartedly recommend Paul for his incisive business acumen and strategic clarity.” Philip Moule, MD LightIQ
  • Paul has been there and done it. Not only that but his personality and manner are such that he connects with the people he meets and gains their trust from the start. Richard Hilderbrand, Corporate finance, M&A, strategic and business adviser, Trowers & Hamlins
  • There are very few people that leave a lasting positive influence on your management style and thinking.  He is an excellent coach and mentor who has the ability to transform or improve any business.   Ron McConnachie, Commercial Director at Kent Blaxill & Co Ltd
  • Paul is a god. Use him….he made us think and work in a much better way. Steve Kemsley, Sassy Films
  • “a calm & considered approach to management meetings, often cutting through the noise to the heart of the real issues. He is a great mentor and has become a friend.”   Paul Gregory, Global Specification Director, Dyson
