Hi, I’m Pete Morgan. I’m a business adviser based in North East Derbyshire and I’ve been working with SENTA in Sheffield and also the Derbyshire Enterprise Agency for more than 5 years. I’ve set up this blog to try to offer useful help to people who are setting up in business in the Sheffield, Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire area. Why? Because with the programme of public sector cuts, it may well become very difficult for start-ups and new businesses to access any form of one to one advice.
So who am I to offer advice? Well, I’ve been in business for the last 20 years or so helping companies with their marketing and communications – strategy and hands on. I have around 30 years experience in the field. I also have the SFEDI diploma in business support advice Small Firms Enterprise Development Initiative. I have worked as a volunteer business advisor for more than 15 years and served as a non-executive director, mentor and coach with commercial and voluntary sector organisations. Most of all, I have a passion for helping people make a success of their business.
My expertise is mostly in the areas of marketing and communications including strategy, copywriting, USP development, and business to business sales processes. I’m also extremely interested in how digital technology and the internet are revolutionising how customers want to communicate.
So the information this blog will be around how start-up businesses can help themselves stand out from the crowd, survive and grow. Do I have a personal axe to grind? Well I need to make a living and if you want to know about my commercial services then you can visit www.seo-copywriters-sheffield.co.uk but the information in this blog will be about how people can help themselves in business.
Please feel free to contribute to this blog and provide links to useful information that will help those who are new to business.
