How I can help you
I can help you with your start up business or with your established, growing business by introducing you to the many tools and resources available through SCORE and its partners. I can help guide you through the process of writing or refining your business plan and financials and prioritizing which areas to initially focus on that are most critical to your goals.
My expertise and experience of more than 35 years includes senior leadership roles in marketing, product development and project management for financial services and payment companies. I have created and managed strategic marketing plans involving advertising, marketing collateral, public relations, direct and email marketing and web site development. I have successfully introduced and used product innovation tools such as the Strategzer Business Model and Value Proposition Canvases to help innovation teams create and launch new product/service concepts that deliver value for customers and revenue for the business.
My MBA and experience managing budgets and developing business cases for products and services will help me better understand what questions to ask you about your business and when to bring in additional SCORE experts to review your financials.
I enjoy the opportunity to meet with and support Maine entrepreneurs as they create and build their small businesses. I believe that my role is to listen, provide information and advice and help you navigate toward achieving your goals. We want you to succeed!
