Just Cash Flow

Executive Chairman

John’s passion is helping businesses thrive and grow by providing much-needed funding where possible and sharing his hard-earned business lessons to a wide audience. As the founder of the business, he is focused on helping to bridge the funding and education gap that has restricted the growth of British entrepreneurs. John draws on his 40 plus years of experience gained through founding and running a number of companies to give guidance to existing and potential business owners. He is frequently asked to chair or contribute at industry-wide events under the key theme of helping businesses avoid potential pitfalls including being the victims of Financial Crime and the need to focus on key business fundamentals such as planning, forecasting and managing cash flow. He is a strong advocate for there to be a formal qualification for directors before they set up in business. Recently he has shared his experience and expertise at a number of Fintech events to educate tech entrepreneurs about the different forms of funding available to them and how to bring their products to the market.
