Clive formed Business Options in 2001 following many years as a senior business adviser for Business Link for London. Clive set up the franchise department for Business Link for London and became a leading expert in business expansion models within the capital. He also played a key role in promoting opportunities for women and ethnic minorities within franchising in the London area.
As an accredited franchise consultant and business adviser, with many years experience advising small, large, and multinational companies to expand both in the UK and internationally, he is able to combine both a practical and pragmatic approach to business expansion. Clive is often called upon to talk about the various options for business expansion, from local networking groups, Banks, Chambers of Commerce, the Institute of Directors and Government Organisations. Business Options is the only franchise and business expansion consultancy in the UK accredited by the British Franchise Association, the Irish Franchise Associations and the Institute of Business Consulting, and specialises in developing domestic and international expansion models.
Business Options provides a full range of services, including the initial feasibility study and expansion model as well as assisting franchisors which are not currently fulfilling their full potential.
Business Options has offices in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Clive is also a Director and Chairman of the Encouraging Women into Franchising Group.
