Terry Irwin

Terry Irwin began work as a consultant after 20 years as a country and regional MD with one of Europe’s largest fast moving consumer goods organisations, based at various times in the UK, and as an expatriate in Germany, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Japan, China and the Russian Federation.

He has had a remarkable impact on the results of many well-known businesses during the past five years. He now specialises in enabling corporate change through strategy, people and processes and has an impressive reputation for helping people in both manufacturing and service industries to embrace change positively and successfully.

Through novel and participative presentations and workshops that engage head, heart and hand, his work nurtures and invigorates resourcefulness and learning.

Terry regularly speaks on conference platforms, delivers workshops and seminars and has mentored politicians, sportspeople and CEOs in the UK and internationally.

He has written over 100 white papers on “best business practice”, based on the consultancy work he and his colleagues have carried out with a broad range of both small and international corporate clients.

Terry considers himself to be a well-adjusted workaholic. He is, however, often sought after by tennis and squash players who like to win. Terry enjoys travelling to exotic countries, consulting on tough business issues, and going to the theatre. He is married and lives in London.

[pl_modal title=”Biography” type=”btn” size=”mini”  colortype=”default bio” label=”Henry Campbell-Jones”]

Henry Campbell-Jones

Having originally started to look for an engineering business to acquire, grow and sell after five years, Henry soon found that very few business vendors were prepared for the sale of their business. Indeed, they often did not know offhand how much money they were making. More often than not, their broker provided little assistance other than to arrange the meeting. Hence Henry saw the gap in the market for a proactive broker with his connections and experience to help business owners achieve the sale and realise the value of their business.

Henry has worked with companies in a range of sectors, including IT support, billing software, graphic design and communications, as well as engineering and fabrication businesses, and has achieved a high success rate.

In addition to working on business sale and acquisition deals, Henry offers coaching and seminars to business owners on how to assess and maximise the value of their business, and advises on exit strategy and how to achieve a successful sale.

He has over 14 years’ commercial and technical experience in the automotive product development and manufacturing industry. Having held several roles in sales and marketing and product management for a leading global automotive supplier, Henry is skilled in all aspects of business planning, product/service valuation, business development and marketing, and is always prepared to roll his sleeves up to drive through change and achieve results.

He lives in London and is married with two children. He enjoys tennis, skiing and windsurfing, and plays the French horn.

[pl_modal title=”Biography” type=”btn” size=”mini”  colortype=”default bio” label=”Ian Munro”]

Ian Munro

Ian has worked with boards of companies for over 30 years as operating board and main board director, as a non-executive director. He is active across a wide range of business sectors and the public sector.

Ian brings this experience to life in a speaker setting by discussing his experiences in a lively and informative manner. He believes that business-critical issues need to be constantly addressed. Such issues include:

  • Starting the turnaround and performance improvement process. Organisations wait too long before addressing the changes needed for survival and rebuilding.
  • Getting effective results from staff. Directors and managers consistently ignore the strength and talent at grass-roots levels within their own organisations because they are too caught up with their own agendas.
  • Networking – the least effectively used business development resource.
  • Top 10 tips for business transformation and recovery in a recession

Ian is a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Institute of Directors. He believes strongly in the wider role of directors and senior managers in their local communities. This has led to him being a school governor and advisor to voluntary groups.

Ian is married with three adult sons, and family activities take up much of his free time. He is a keen golfer and wine enthusiast.

[pl_modal title=”Biography” type=”btn” size=”mini”  colortype=”default bio” label=”Bay Jordan”]

Bay Jordan

Bay Jordan qualified as a chartered accountant in what was then Rhodesia and subsequently again in South Africa. After eight years in public practice and several years as Internal Auditor for IBM, he moved into financial management and consultancy and has worked in blue-chip organisations in South Africa, North America and the UK.

The drive throughout his career has been the ideal of properly designed systems with integrated controls and sound business intelligence. He argues that this would both save a great deal of the time and effort spent auditing them and provide meaningful management information. This enables proactive decision making and ensures better long-term business results.

For this reason, Bay claims he was a business process re-engineer before the phrase was even coined.

Despite some major success, Bay felt frustrated by the almost exclusive focus on financial data. He is adamant that you need to also track key non-financial data for meaningful business intelligence. This has, however, only become feasible relatively recently, and he concedes that he may have been a little ahead of his time. But he was also bothered by being involved in implementing new systems where users were only trained a few days before the system went live.

Things reached a new level a few years ago. He realised that successful change depends on people. Yet most organisations justify change initiatives by reducing headcount. Thus they are effectively alienating their people, and so undermining their own prospects of success.

This realisation led Bay to write Lean Organisations Need FAT People, and set him on the path to becoming “The People Accountant” – someone who helps organisations to value their employees and embed employee engagement into their DNA.

When he is not writing books (his second, A Feeling of Worth, was published in 2009) and papers to promote his vision, Bay relaxes by reading and by watching movies or sport. He is married with two adult children.
