We are now actively seeking entrepreneurial business professionals to represent us as Regional Master Franchise Partners in the United Kingdom.
Why I launched thexton armstrong
External events were having a big impact on economies and made it clear to me that most SMEs were ill equipped to withstand external shocks such as the GFC (in later years followed by Brexit, Covid, an energy crisis and inflation). SMEs needed support at a time they became more cautious to invest in external advisors. This kicked off my search for the best, industry independent tools and methodologies to convince and support SMEs and share them with as many independent business consultants as possible. Hence the launch of the thexton armstrong business mentoring franchise in 2011 in The Netherlands.
