As Chairman of a new freight ferry start-up venture I soon recognized that the business needed help. Our initial planning showed that to reach critical mass and launch the service our operations needed to be bigger than initially envisaged and our management team was spread too thinly.
I had known John for over 20 years and worked with him fulfilling different roles – HR Director, leader of a business turnaround and researcher. John agreed to take on project management of the start-up, working on a on a flexible basis as needed with an average two days a week.
He was quick to familiarize himself with all aspects of the venture and introduced project disciplines of regular conference calls and project reports appropriate to our needs. When the business needed an investor prospectus John sourced suitable examples and then drafted, edited and arranged printing of the final document. While assessing our strengths he recognized the need for enhanced financial expertise and found an excellent candidate. Using his HR experience, he produced a comprehensive range of employment documentation covering everything from offer letters to the staff handbook.
As needed, John was able to dedicate more or less time to the project including working evenings and weekends to meet deadlines.
John has been a cornerstone of the launch phase guiding the project from concept to viable proposition.
