My name is Christopher Briggs and my mission is to reduce the number of businesses that fail and to help business owners achieve extraordinary success.
I am the author of Your Business Foundation and the creator of the Business Foundation System, which I use with my clients to help them build their businesses on the kind of strong foundation on which all successful businesses are built.
From engineering (designing silicon chips) and to marketing, I have 20+ years experience working in the electronics industry. I won many multi-million contacts for the various semiconductor giants I worked for and finally co-founded and built a software company, which I closed in 2009.
Since then I have consulted, coached, trained and helped the owners of micro, small and medium-sized businesses to create the right strategy that will help them successfully grow their business.
During this time I researched why most businesses struggle and ultimately fail and discovered the 3 fundamental elements, Strategy, Systems and Leadership that, if missing, will cause a business to struggle. These elements became the 3 Fundamental Building Blocks that make up the solid foundation that all successful organisations are built on and the basis of what I teach - I even wrote a book on the subject.
As well as successes, I have had my fair share of set backs and struggles. I have got things wrong and wasted precious time, money and energy working to get them right. My successes, my struggles and the huge amount of experience gathered on this journey have given me what I need to help others succeed.
Here are some thoughts from people I have consulted, trained and worked with:
