“whoever has the most stories wins”

Dom Moorhouse is a business advisor, angel investor and serial entrepreneur. In 2004 Dom founded Moorhouse Consulting which he grew from nothing to a business that he sold for c.£20,000,000 less than 5 years later.

After leaving Moorhouse Dom set up his advisory business ‘the 5 year entrepreneur’ to provide mentorship and guidance for owners of Professional Services firms on how they can achieve the same success that he did.

Dom is also an advisor and board member to multiple Professional Services firms and is currently focusing on his latest venture, Method Grid (www.methodgrid.com), which we discuss further in the Podcast.            

We cover so many topics in this episode including:

Building high performance teams and some of the pitfalls to watch out for as your Consultancy grows
