  • “I cannot thank UK Business Mentoring enough – especially our mentor – Paul Clarke. From the moment we met at a seminar, Paul could see how frustrated I was as a business owner and talked me through a number of ideas to help me along. Since then we meet up once a month on so many different topics. Paul is a great help and is at the end of the phone or email with immediate help and advice. I would not hesitate to recommend UK Business Mentoring if you own or run a business.”
    Martin Flynn - Stockport
  • "I decided to work with Paul at UKBM because I had experienced his positive style and experience on a peer networking event and wanted more and with more specific focus on my business. Paul started with a critical and accurate assessment of where we were and in the last 18 months we have made huge strives to moving me, and our business forwards. Specifically and not limited to, we shaped board meetings, created outstanding financial dashboards, established coaching based 121 meetings with the entire team and got to focussing everyone on the things that matter most. The result is more time, more profits and continual growth and to be able to fulfil our visions for the future. The investment in Paul and UKBM has paid itself back over and over and continues to do so."

    Ged Tyrrell - Leigh, Greater Manchester
  • "Can't rate UKBM highly enough, Paul is a very personable guy who listens and tailors advice to your situation. My business is much easier to manage and more profitable since we have been working together."

    Liam Hobbs - Beeston, Nottinghamshire
  • "We have been working with Paul Clarke for over 6 months and have found his experience, input, ideas, questions and suggestions to be invaluable. Whilst any business can take time to do things better they often don't because there is something more pressing. Having a third party viewpoint adds another dimension to any business and having regular meetings helps maintain momentum and invigorates what we do and how we're doing it. I’d sum it up as a bit like having fitness sessions with a personal trainer. Whilst you can take yourself to the gym, without a pre-booked session you would probably not go and if you did, not be sure what best to focus on when you got there."

    Geoff Gartland - Bracknell, Berkshire
  • "Amazing! Would highly recommend UKBM, as a small business Paul's support and mentorship has been invaluable. Paul has provided a consistent voice of reason along with a broad range of business knowledge and expertise to help develop and grow my business."

    Kathryn Slack
  • "Paul Clarke of UKBM has been assisting Safer Sphere over a 2 year period. Paul's support to me personally as business owner has been invaluable and he is now working with our senior leadership team on their development and the business development. He has helped us immensely."

    Mike Forsyth - St. Helens, Merseyside
  • "I have worked with Paul for a few years now and have always found him a huge help in the advice and observations he has made to improve both myself & my business. Paul has a wealth of experience but most importantly is his manner of approach & his skills which focus on the key areas that need to improve in a very positive way. He has helped my business & me personally hugely in many ways. Bringing Paul into my business has been a great investment & added huge value. The role of CEO or owner can be lonely at times and Paul’s support for me has been absolutely invaluable"
    Mike Braddock, Cheshire
  • "Paul Clarke has been part of our business journey over the last four years. Paul brings a wealth of experience and has helped us as a board of directors/senior leadership team to think out of the box and helped us on our journey of business growth. Paul has provided management training, coaching and mentoring and also been key in our strategy awaydays where he facilitates discussions and keeps us on track and focused on the outcomes."
    Rob Douglass - Wrexham, North Wales

    Business Mentoring

    We like to describe ourselves as your ‘challenging friend’ someone who is on your side, to support, help and encourage you but who will also tell it to you straight. Our role is to enable you to achieve your goals and help along the way with any challenges or obstacles that come up on the journey. We work with a lot of our clients for years, some over ten years, they appreciate having the support of an experienced business person who is available to them to discuss issues of any nature.

    Strategic Planning

    For many business owners, strategic planning is something that they rarely seem to get around to. Our role here is to discuss and agree with you on what do you want from the business personally and what the business needs to achieve to enable that. Once we have the ‘Destination’ set, we can work with you to agree on how this should be achieved, what needs to be done, benchmarks to be achieved and an overall plan to monitor progress.
