The Business Plan Network Management is made up of a small team of brilliant business professionals committed to helping our associates succeed.
Andrew Ludlam – Founder and Director
For over a decade Andrew has been helping companies to grow across a spectrum of industries. He is a highly respected business consultant, trainer and author.
The Business Plan Network was developed from Andrew's 'real world' experience of running a thriving business plan consultancy called The Business Plan Writer, and having worked with many hundreds of companies from start-ups through to large corporations.
However, what really makes Andrew 'qualified' to teach others to run their own consultancy, is that he doesn't just write business plans for a living – Andrew has built up and developed a portfolio of businesses. He's on your side of the desk and knows exactly what it takes to run a successful enterprise – as well as understand the pressures and challenges you can sometimes face.
Andrew also runs Maverick Marketing Consultancy, working with professional service firms to help better position and communicate their uniqueness in the market place; establish a result focused framework for growth and devise and implement marketing concepts and tactics. Andrew is the author of the Amazon 5-star rated book "Maverick Marketing: Essential Business-Building Strategies for Extraordinary Business Growth".
Andrew is also the founder of a number of business advice organisations across the UK, as well as a co-director of a health and fitness holdings company.
David Salkeld – Financial Management Consultant
David is an integral part of the team providing our associates with financial forecast training, as well as hands on help with business plan forecasts, cash flow solutions and lending propositions.
David has vast experience in commercial banking, having previously worked for Lloyds for 31 years. David also works for the Frost Group and has helped many hundreds of business owners to improve their financial management and profitability and is the expert in developing sound financial forecasts from an investor's point of view, such that the figures actually mean something.
Mark Mortlock– Website and Design Manager
Mark is our 'go to' website and graphic design expert and helps maintain and keep the Business Plan Network looking great. He is also an expert on Search Engine Optimisation and designing innovative graphic content.
In addition Mark runs Imagery & Design providing online and offline creative design for clients, companies and agencies wanting to grab the audience's attention and set their brand aside from the competition.
