Peter Cruikshanks: Business Coach and Management Consultant

Here’s some background about me.

Many of the business owners I work with describe me using words like, trusted, giving confidence, supportive, partner, friend. Words are good but working closely with someone on your business needs that ‘know, like, trust’ approach. So start with my video, reading my blogs and case studies and speaking to people who have worked with me. Then, let’s talk over a coffee, see if we share similar values and understanding. Finally, we could spend some time together working on how to make your business work better in one specific area,

And, here’s more factual things about me.

I am a chartered accountant with a background in manufacturing, insurance and utilities. My experience includes working in large and small businesses in financial and commercial management roles. I have done loads of business and process improvement, whilst ensuring people are fully involved in the changes. I have grown a £2 million turnover water management business within the Kelda Group.

For the last 12 years I have been advising the owners of SMEs in Yorkshire on growing their businesses, increasing profits and making them more sellable. Have a look at my case studies and testimonials. You can always directly ask those business owners to say how I have helped them.

On a more personal side of my life, I am a keen rugby supporter, following Ulster Rugby in the Pro 14 competition, and of course, Ireland in the Six Nations. No surprise that Ultimate Rugby is my favourite phone app.  I’m a regular runner, about 20 to 30 miles a week. You may see me running on the roads of Ossett or nearby trails to keep up to speed for 10k, 10 mile or half marathon races.

I am a trustee and treasurer of Back to Front, a charity that supports the residents of Harehills in learning how to grow fruit and vegetables at home.
