Founded by former BE Group executive director Jonathan Lamb, new venture Spurr focusses on helping business people achieve great things through expert business strategy development and execution.
Central to this is the identification of sectors and markets for their products or services, identifying a sustainable competitive advantage and delivering results, including organic growth and acquisitions.
Jonathan said: "There's a gap between start-up strategy providers, and large firms who have the capacity and capability to employ those functions internally. Once a business gets big enough to have people running the individual functions, managing the process of growth and strategy development starts to become more than one person can handle, and whilst the MD or CEO will often oversee strategy, the risk is opportunities are missed and true capability is capped."
With over twenty years’ experience in creating and growing medium sized businesses, Jonathan feels this innovative consulting service will help clients who otherwise wouldn’t find or reach their business potential.
He's a former MBA student at Durham University, with global insight nurtured during his time on the senior team at Business Link Tees Valley and as part of the winning bid team for the regional Business Link service.
Working from the Fusion Hive Innovation Centre in Tees Valley, his focus will be on working with firms across the North East and Yorkshire, with a specific focus on those who are considering export markets at a particularly complex time.
“I’ve always believed when working with businesses whose drive and meticulous focus mark them out in their industry, you need to have a crystal clear idea of how you add value. I have de-constructed strategy consulting and challenged traditional assumptions of what clients should expect.
