About Graham Robson
With 25 years’ experience of running businesses, Graham knows all too well the regularly occurring challenges of improving the bottom line, increasing the profit margin, growing sales, asking the right people to do the right things and simply getting things to work according to plan.
“Finding the right people who are passionate and dedicated is not easy and is frequently an area where costly mistakes are made. I find I can provide valuable assistance with this process.”
Graham’s passion for business underpins his support of owners who are planning to develop and grow. He provides practical advice, coaching and support in and around the North East, working with business owners to help them clarify and reach their business goals. Graham believes that business ownership, though often exciting and endlessly interesting, can sometimes be lonely and frustrating.
“It can be a real challenge for business owners to find the time to stand back and take stock of where their business stands at the moment and what they want to achieve within the next one to three years. To have access to a knowledgeable touchstone able to discuss the fulfilment of long-held aspirations can make all the difference.”

Feedback from workshop
One of the most informative support programmes I have engaged with in over 2 decades. Cannot rate this programme highly enough. It gives the attendee an opportunity to evaluate, identify and address challenges within the company
Graham has been instrumental in changing my business ethos in relation to pricing, outsourcing and generally being more efficient.

The Business Doctors programme was a real help to us as it was tailored to our needs. It is applicable to us as a business with under 10 employees and it really helped us move out of just thinking of ourselves as a 'small start-up' to a well-recognised brand that offers something special. Even though we knew we needed to get a handle on our figures and finances, it has helped us put a new focus on what we need to do next and has given us a clearer focus on aiming for growth.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your help and support during the Don't Panicâ€¦.Plan It Workshops provided by Business Doctors and RTC North. The chance to participate in the course has really been a game changer for me during these unprecedented times and has given me a chance to create opportunity from crisis. Instead of working from home and worrying about the future of my business, I have taken a step back and looked for the silver lining; and with your help and support I have found it. Your input has been collaborative and thought-provoking, making myself and the other directors take a long hard look at not only our daily business operations and strategies but also our aspirations and visionary goals for the next 3 years. You have helped me gain access to comprehensive cashflow and business planning support, provided 1-1 follow up support sessions and helped me manage issues facing the business now and what might arise in the future. It has given me the opportunity to re-focus and re-evaluate the business and the plans we have in place for growth, and more importantly it has re-energized myself and the other directors to drive the business forward and reach our full potential; and for that I am truly grateful. I would certainly encourage any business owners, directors or managers to engage with Business Doctors, it's not always easy, but it is certainly worth it.
