Online PR News – 10-February-2010 – – Successful business leader, Michael Richards, has launched a business growth consultancy under the name 2nd Head. The consultancy offers a combination of strategic advice and support to all types of businesses to help them overcome barriers to growth.

Commenting on his decision to create 2nd Head, Michael says: “Having worked with many smaller businesses I’ve noticed that while many of them start well, they often hit a period of transition when they naturally encounter growing pains. I want 2nd Head to offer exactly the kind of sound and pragmatic advice that organisations like this need, but minus the confusing jargon that you often see with big consultancies. My team and I are passionate about business and I want to show that in the type of consultancy we deliver.”

Richards is also keen to emphasise 2nd Head’s humanistic approach to business. “At 2nd Head we’re not just concerned with financial performance; we see employee engagement as a key driver to business success. Without loyal employees who are clearly aligned with corporate goals, a business can soon fail – regardless of how sales driven it may be.”

Richards is best known as former C.E.O of HR and Payroll software supplier, Snowdrop Systems, sold to Sage UK in 2007 for the value of £17 million. His experience in the foundation and growth of Snowdrop will set him in good stead for offering consultancy to other businesses. He brings with him a team of highly experienced professionals, each specialising in their own area of business. Having worked with all his colleagues previously, Michael comments: “There is a great deal of trust within our team. We work well together and that’s a must when going into another organisation, as it has a high impact on the quality of service that we deliver.”
