Ann Hawkins

Business advisor, coach and mentor

Cambridge UK

I build businesses by helping owners and founders to focus on profitable activities and get their pricing and offering right.

This is done with a mixture of highly practical coaching and mentoring and advice that covers every aspect of running a business. Together we create a plan and I hold you accountable for its implementation. I don’t try to ‘fix’ you but work with your values and personality so that you build a business that gives you security and a great life instead of it sucking the life out of you.

You can work with me on a one-to-one basis or with your team, on-line or face-to-face.

You can work with me personally or join my on-line coaching programme, Work Smart Not Hard. Pitch for People members get a 50% discount so just ask me for details.

My testimonials provide a great overview of the businesses I’ve worked with.

My book, New Business: Next Steps was published by Pearson in 2015.

Business Growth

You want to grow your business and you’re not sure where to start or how to break out of the cycle of “almost, but not quite making it”.
You know where you want to go but you’re not quite sure of the best way to get there.
There are a million things you could do and a lot of advice out there on marketing, pricing, time management and many other things you know you need.
The big question is where to start and how to make it all fit together.
Working with me you’ll produce a business growth plan that makes perfect sense.
You’ll know what action to take every day that will bring you closer to your goals and you’ll know how it all fits together and fits into your every day actions. And I’ll work with you to make sure those actions happen.
You’ll build a really strong foundation for a business that can run without you, so that you can go on holiday and know that money is coming in and everything is working smoothly.
When you have questions about cash flow, systems, processes, pricing, marketing, social media, selling, hiring and managing people, customers and technology, you’ll have one person to ask – me.
If I can’t provide the answers I’ll know where to get them and who to trust and, because I’ll know your business inside out, they’ll be right for your specific situation, not generic training or templated consultancy services.
With a mixture of coaching, mentoring and training you’ll stop working hard and start working smart, consistently making the right decisions and doing the right things at the right time to build a business you can be proud of and that will provide you with the rewards you really want.


Apart from the on-line programme, all of these services are priced according to the amount of work involved and the value that will be added to your business but they’re all agreed up front with no minimum contract and no hidden extras. Some people work with me for a month and some for years.If you’d like to find out what value I can bring to your business, contact me now to see how we could work together.
