In a world where business owners and leaders are having to deal with more unknowns than knowns, Business Vision Consulting empowers leaders to open the minds of those around them in achieving relevance, success & exceeding expectations on #yourjourneyahead

Business Vision Consulting wants to help you to break down the barriers of ‘we’ve always done it this way’, ‘back to norm’ or ‘new norm’ mindsets by building firmwide engagement to your story.

We want to be your confidant and success partner on #yourjourneyahead

The Work

So how can Business Vision Consulting help you?

All too often, leaders find themselves being spoken at and sold to rather than being given the time to share their story.

At Business Vision Consulting we don’t look to pigeonhole every potential issue to a set shopping list of offerings and solutions. The starting point is always to listen to and learn from your specific story, so that we can work together in identifying what might be blocking #yourjourneyahead

We recognise that no two journeys are the same whether you’re looking to:

  • validate where you find yourself today
  • capitalise on your existing success
  • exceed your growth aspirations
  • change direction, including entering new markets or developing new products/services
  • establish new working practices or structures to remain relevant
  • (or) simply navigate the noise and needs of the world around you

The key deliverable that Business Vision Consulting comes to you with, is the desire to hear your specific story, and to be given the opportunity to be your independent success partner in supporting you today and tomorrow on #yourjourneyahead

All sounds a little simple? As leaders, the reality is that we can all too often overcomplicate things as we look to navigate what can be a lonely journey when it comes to building ideas, forming strategy and delivering long term sustainable relevance to our business or firm.

Business Vision Consulting is not here to suggest or action seismic change or promise unrealistic and/or unachievable returns.  We are here to support you in achieving your specific goals one step at a time.

The Who – James Hickey

Life and business are a journey with many unknowns.

During my professional journey, which in the last 10 years has been as the CEO of two multinational oganisations, I have had the opportunity to have worked for market leading organisations within their respective industry sectors.  During this time I have met/visited thousands of business leaders within both the professional services sector (from local independent market leading firms to the Big 4 and magic circle law firms) and then businesses from SMEs to Fortune 100 companies.  This journey has taken me to 80+ countries.

I pride myself on my ability to connect, influence and motivate colleagues and clients at all levels from many different cultures. 

The highlight of my professional journey has been the time that leaders from a cross section of business and markets around the world have given to tell me their stories. These stories have provided real insight of many varied journeys, both successful and not, that combine to provide a broad oversight of the world around us.

Away from the day job my time is filled with sharing my journey with my wife, three children, three Labradors and a growing number of livestock in the beautiful Pewsey Vale in Wiltshire.
