Call in the inspector.
Holmfirth-based Darryl Gould - who was dubbed "Yorkshire's own business inspector" at a recent awards ceremony, has undertaken a market development plan for social enterprise SHINE at Harehills in Leeds.
And he has also completed a research task for leading kitchen manufacturer Laminates in South Yorkshire.
He said: "I thought the title 'business inspector' was a bit of fun at first, but people really seem to have latched on to it and does sum up what I do rather well."
Darryl, who has worked in senior management for Hambros Bank, Saatchi and Saatchi and Dixons Stores Group, is engaged by companies to come up with solutions to help them move forward, change direction or develop new markets.
Mr Gould is chairman of the Institute of Directors in South Yorkshire and has been a chamber of commerce member for more than 10 years.
He said: "I know how difficult business development can be at this time. My skills are in helping companies find ways to move forward and - luckily - within Yorkshire there are many companies still keen to swim out to their boat rather than wait for it to come in."
