Mentoring

Tim Worrall has mentored over ten CEOs and MDs of SMEs over the last 15 years, and has established a track record working with leaders of owner-managed businesses.

Success in these roles has been due to a persuasive and influential approach, supported by the gravitas earned through extensive experience, ensuring that owner-managers listen and learn.

Tim is the first to accept that he has made mistakes in the past, and is determined that Avalon’s clients benefit from them, ensuring that they don’t fall into the same traps.

As a mentor, he rarely adopts a directive style, which could cause owner-managers to push back. After all, it is their business, not Avalon’s, and only if the ‘barbarians are at the gate’ is it necessary to take a strong lead.

Ask Me a Question

Please feel free to contact me using the form to the right. Alternately there are a few FAQ’s below which may help.

Where are you based?

We’re based in Cheshire, England, but it really isn’t relevant because we prefer to go where the client is based. For example, we’ve worked recently in Bathgate, Swansea, Burton-upon-Trent, Basingstoke, and London.

Are You a One Man Band?

No, Avalon is led by its Director Tim Worrall, but it works closely with three experienced associates who complement Tim’s strategic experience with financial and human resources skills.

Is Your Experience Limited to The Motor Sector?

We have extensive operational, non-executive and consultancy experience in motor retail, but we have worked in over 60 sectors. Recent assignments include work in mobile phones, estate agency, financial services and distribution.

Isn't Management Assessment all About Getting a Gut Feel for a Person?

We believe gut feel is important, or put another way, the personal chemistry needs to be right, but it should be the last 5% of a decision, not the first 95%. By adopting profiling and structured interview techniques, supported by referencing as appropriate, we endeavour to put a degree of science into our processes.

What Our Clients Say

The interesting thing to me here is that he leapt of the page…..the person captured (in your report) is very much the individual I know, so that’s good.
