Planning for 2017 and Beyond

It’s the beginning of the year and time for me to reflect and revise my plans, consider my business activities, thinking and also start looking beyond 2017…are you doing this?

Stop and consider the following:

What worked well for you in 2016?

What do you want to do differently in 2017?

Do you have something special to plan for like selling the business/retirement/growing the business substantially?

Do you have a life/career/retirement/business plan for 2017?

Do you always do what you have always done and go through life without a plan? Perhaps you start with a mental plan but it never gets underway. Other things stop it, perhaps time, other people or just the day to day demands of the job!

Have you been in a job for a long time without a proper career plan putting up with a culture you are unhappy with?

Are you a couple of years off retirement without a plan?

Fewer than 5% of SMEs run their company as a business with a business plan. As a result, the business often lurches from feast to famine, where months of overwhelm are followed by months of insecurity. Generating new business is a constant hassle and in time this drains the energy of the professional.

So, whether it is a life/career/retirement/business plan surely it is a time to review, adapt and have a plan. To make these changes, ideally you need a professional to bounce your ideas or issues off in total confidence who is totally detached from your everyday life/business. That’s where I come in!

Who is Neil Williams?

Have a look at my website which shows that I have been in business for over 40 years as an insurance/sales/marketing/ professional including roles as a Non-Executive Director as well as Development Director and Managing Director. I have had many successes and been made redundant three times. Over the last 10 years I have spent hundreds of hours training to be a coach and supervisor of coaches (accredited by AC and CSA) and now instead of me doing, I want to help people like you achieve whatever you term “being successful”, whether it’s your job, business or life ambitions.

How can I help you?

We will sit down and see where you are now and where you would really like to be for the future. Then between us we will build a plan of how you are going to get there. At a regular review, we will overview all aspects of your plan. I can help you with accountability by challenging you when you need to be challenged.

Scheduling: At the end of each session, we will schedule our next session. These sessions can be by phone, Skype or face-to-face, whichever suits you the best, it’s your decision. I am happy to give you feedback between sessions via email.

Free Chemistry-Session: If the above makes sense to you, I am happy to have a 20 minute (Skype) session to ensure we can work together.

So if you want to ensure you have a successful 2017 send me an email at and we can arrange a Skype call or a coffee, if you live locally
