I am JB. 

I help leaders with speedy, sustainable scaling of their business operations

Series A+ ScaleUps  |  Growth Equity Biz  |  Corporate Innovators

 Future Faster 

I work globally with CEOs, COOs, CoS, executives and entrepreneurs at Series A and beyond. They partner with me to become stronger leaders and for my help making their teams high performing. I enable these accelerated results by implementing a proven scale-up system tailored to their timelines and need to grow fast.

 The 

 Scale-Up 

 System 

Using a proprietary operating system built on a set of simple proven frameworks, I support leaders on the four areas they need to get right to scale successful - Strategy | Execution | People | Sales. By customizing these frameworks to their business stage leaders get control of complexity and can focus their teams on the results that matter.

 The   Fundraising   Fast-Forward 

Having sat on all sides of the table and been involved with $Bs of fundraising I know what it takes to perfect your pitch and set yourself up for a streamlined process. My fundraising playbook is free to read, but if you want even more tools, templates and techniques get in touch.

 The   Leadership   Level-Up 

Understanding first-hand the responsibilities and challenges that come with serving both a business and your people, I know what it takes to make this balance work. I have limited bandwidth, but I always find time to mentor a few high potential CEO, COO and CoS that I like. My approach is to share my unique experience, habit hacks, connections and to ask the right questions.

On A Mission
To Scale Results

I have spent over 25 years transforming businesses and executive teams by making things happen faster, bigger and more systematically. From my own startups; to being Google’s first Chief-of-Staff; the COO at SoftBank International; and more recently mentoring scale-up CEOs, my experience in helping businesses scale is extensive.

 

I lived and worked in Silicon Valley for nearly 15 years, and have spent my career working throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Today I am based in London but still help teams worldwide.

Skip The Trial
And Error…

Whatever your situation, it is not unique, well certainly not 100% unique. Many many smart people before you (and me) have faced the same challenges. Some failed. Some succeeded. Why not learn from both cases?

 

I was asked recently how long it took me to write my playbooks… honestly, 25 years! And I refresh them every time I learn something better. They do not contain the perfect answers (hint: it doesn’t exist), but almost always they give you the 80% solution you can quickly customize and iterate on to make your own.
