About Simon Grant
Simon is a chartered accountant with an MBA from Manchester Business School. Despite spending over 20 years in finance director roles with G4S and fair trade pioneer Traidcraft, Simon would still define himself as a business generalist.
“Having worked for overseas subsidiaries in Kenya and Indonesia, I always found myself taking on responsibility for much more than financial performance,” he says. “My wide ranging expertise makes me an asset to SME owners who are looking to move their business to the next level. I have a strong financial focus, but am experienced across the board.”
Simon details amongst his internationally acquired skill set, expertise in general management (including a role as interim managing director of Securicor Kenya), company secretarial work, HR, IT, supply chain management, internal audit, property management, acquisitions and mergers and fleet management.
“Working across both the commercial and not-for-profit sectors has shown me that charities, schools and other non-profit making organisations of all kinds need to operate more like businesses,” he said. “The same kind of strategic review, forward planning and reporting can help them to grow and thrive in just the same way as an SME.”

We engaged with Paul Shaw at Business Doctors to help guide us through a facilitated session that would help us understand what we want out of life personally and professionally. We spent all day collaboratively figuring out who we are, what our customers really want, what the risks to our business are, where we can improve and what gives us our edge. We are completely clear now on where we want the business to go, what we need to do to get there and who we need to do it. The process is solid and all you need to do is bring an open mind, your brain and be prepared to refocus your thinking. A challenging day that has completely changed our thinking and focus for the next 3-5 years. Great plan in place and now it is about the execution. I would recommend this process to anyone who wants a 360 business strategy for the next few years.
I attended one of Paul's seminars which I found very informative. Paul has a lot of business experience which helps to bring key business concepts to life. The seminar has made me think differently about our business strategy and I am looking forward to working with Paul to put some of these ideas into practice. I would recommend that you attend one of Paul's seminars so that you can see what he can do for your business.
"Thanks to Simon we have been able to make a future plans for our business and we are now stronger than ever. I would highly recommend Business Doctors if you are in need of any guidance or support"
"Simon has a wealth of experience in business & charity finance and strategic development. From working with him for nearly ten years I found him to be a highly skilled finance director & business leader. Totally trustworthy, dependable & supportive. He has a refreshing way of being able to get to the heart of business & financial issues to talk about what really matters in everyday & simple language. Often with a great sense of humour. From complex business challenges through to making the most of new opportunities I'd recommend him as someone who will add lots of value and bring a strong sense of clarity."
"I've been on audit and finance committees which had Simon as FD. He operates at a high level of professional/ethical standards combined with practical standards of tight financial management and thorough business understanding. And also a pleasure to work with!"
"Simon was the backbone of our Kenyan business for several years and steered it through difficult market, employment and structural issues. His integrity, work ethic and professional expertise earned him the respect and admiration of his piers, the workforce and the Group management team. (I was the Group CFO). I could not recommend Simon more strongly and any organisation would be lucky to have his involvement. I am more than happy to expand on this to anybody that needs further information."
"Simon was my Finance Director at Securicor Kenya. As a key member of the management team Simon made a valuable contribution to developing innovative and bold company strategies and business plans. He was always keen to seek imaginative solutions. In my absence, Simon deputised for me. Simon was very solution-oriented and used his strong analytical skills to reach pragmatic decisions. He is a tough negotiator but listens and responds positively to feedback. He is also an enthusiastic team member who leads by example and has a positive winning attitude. His colleagues recognised him as an achiever who will succeed even in difficult times. He always treated others with respect and sensitivity and maintained the highest level of integrity."
