For the past few months I have been working with Andy Ferguson, Managing Director of Boots Opticians, the UK’s second largest optician chain. Together with executive team Andy had already developed a top-line strategy, but wanted to flesh out the next level of detail. We worked with him to develop a set of medium-term objectives, a “formula for growth” to support their delivery and also defined the major growth initiatives that would deliver the company’s growth ambitions. By clarifying Andy’s expectations up-front we were quickly able to make material progress.

Here’s what Andy said about our work together:

“Working with Stuart has provided the necessary support and challenge we needed as a business, and has also given me the opportunity to learn from his pragmatic and straightforward approach to strategy. Stuart added tremendous value to our thinking and worked at pace to ensure we generated real momentum. He has a refreshing high-impact and collaborative approach to consulting that delivers rapid and tangible results.”
