About The Business Builder… 



I always loved helping my Dad. He was an engineer with the heart of an artist, a master craftsman who could build furniture and draw pictures, and he was an entrepreneur who ran a business – and he taught me to always Go the Extra Mile in everything I did. Whenever he was fixing the car, decorating, or building something – I was always there – holding the torch, finding the right spanner, trying to find the best way to do something… keeping him company.

More recently I’ve realised that’s part of what I do with my clients. I love working with people with diverse skills and personalities who want to build great businesses.

Maybe one day they’ll sell the business, maybe one day they’ll get someone to run it for them, maybe they want to leave a legacy – or maybe they’ll keep on working and doing what they love to do…

The trouble is they get ‘stuck’. They find themselves wearing too many hats, trying to do too many things, not having enough time, and spending too much time working at the coal face. They feel that they’re not really managing, controlling, or building their business.

And just when they think they’ve got the business growing – it gets stuck – and they just can’t break through that ‘glass ceiling’ to the next level.

That’s where I come in. 

A business is made up of a series of building blocks that fit and work together in a certain way – depending on what level of growth that business has or has not achieved. I show businesses which key building blocks they need – based on what blocks they have, don’t have, or aren’t working properly – and then we put them together in the right order and make them work.

Our goal is to build a great business that can generate More Profits, More time, and More Freedom for those passionate business owners and their staff… and always Go the Extra Mile.

I’m The Business Builder and I can help you build that great business.


About Alistair Summers…


I’ve worked with small companies and large companies – in private practice, in the commercial sector, in the public sector, and in the charity sector. I’ve been a Finance Director and an Operations Director – at the same time – and been responsible for a billion-pound operation…  and I’ve worked for myself.

But I fell into the trap of corporate ‘burnout’ and found myself critically ill in hospital where life was about to take me on a new journey – one which included total paralysis and learning to walk again – but that’s another story…

But my new journey taught me some really valuable lessons; about family, time management, goal setting, work-life balance, following my passions, the need for financial security . . . and a lot more. So I decided that I had had enough of the corporate world and I wanted to be my own ‘boss’.

Over the years my extensive business knowledge, management skills and life experiences have helped me to develop a unique blend of business and personal development skills in the areas of business coaching, consultancy, mentoring – with which I help my clients.

Most of all I love working with and supporting business owners by helping them to grow great businesses and enjoy the life they’ve always wanted.

Outside of work I have a great family – Rhona my wife and three great kids – Peter, Matthew and Claire – and not forgetting one of my best friends our 2-year old border collie Ziva. She’s the one in the middle who wants to get to the other side of the wall but needs some help…

… just like some of my clients.
