Laurence Heron is the latest professional to join our network and is looking forward to supporting SMEs in his home country.
Laurence has a wealth of experience from an impressive 25-year career in business. His work has taken him all over the globe, having run businesses in the UK, Australia, the USA, and China.
“I strongly felt I wanted to do something positive within Scotland, which is my original home country. Helping smaller businesses and the wider business community with my experiences and knowledge is an incredibly rewarding prospect. I enjoy helping people.”
As for why he specifically chose to invest in a Business Doctors franchise, Laurence explains.
“What stood out to me about Business Doctors is that they were very genuine. And by genuine, I mean, frankly, no-nonsense. What you see is what you get. They don’t try and pad things out with fancy words, fancy rhetoric. They are just there to help businesses grow and achieve.
I’ve done very well in the corporate sector. But, investing in the franchise allows me to downsize and run my own business, be in control of my destiny in a sense. I can now do that in a way which I find personally rewarding and enjoyable.”
Laurence believes that there is a tremendous amount of untapped opportunity for SMEs in Edinburgh.
Matthew Levington Co-Founder said, “Laurence is a great addition to our team, he has the experience required and is completely on board with our ‘pay it forward’ ethos and values.”
This is our second operation in Scotland and 37th overall in the UK.
