Get Results is Run by Mike Knudsen
Mike has over 20 years experience working in multinational companies. Working at director level in operational and corporate roles, his areas of responsibility included product development, service delivery, operations, marketing, sales and distribution. He launched numerous new products, opened up new markets, and successfully led teams in fast-moving environments where change was the norm.
Taking the Lessons from Big Business to Any Business
Whilst gaining experience in big business Mike saw that ‘keeping it simple‘, ‘focussing on the customer‘ and ‘finding win-win outcomes‘ were the principles that got results time and time again. In creating GET RESULTS Mike’s main objective was to translate this experience of what works well in bigger businesses into solutions that work in any business.
Combining Enthusiasm with Structure and Focus
Enthusiasm for each and every assignment has been a key ingredient in Mike’s success as an independent business coach, trainer and mentor. Combining focus on the outcomes with a structured approach, he has created a sound reputation for helping business owners overcome challenges and discover new opportunities.
Committed to Continued Professional Development
Mike takes his own professional development very seriously. In addition to executive training at London Business School, Cranfield and ENSEAD during his corporate career, Mike is an Accredited Associate of the Institute of Independent Business, the international business research and accreditation organisation. Mike also holds a Diploma in Strategic Business Coaching and is a qualified NLP practitioner. This commitment to continued learning benefits clients who receive the most up to date and relevant input for their business.
Helping Business Grow
Mike helps small to medium size businesses grow. His programmes cover a wide range of activities including strategic planning, organisational structure and alignment, marketing, sales, client retention, individual and team effectiveness, and business process improvement. He takes a flexible approach, and combines training, mentoring, coaching and hands-on project work in the way that best fits each particular client.
Whatever the method, the outcome is always a practical action plan plus whatever support you need as you put the plan into practice.
The Right Support for You? A Client Perspective
“Mike had a good overall understanding of the issues we faced, made relevant suggestions, liaised with his contacts in my line of business, followed up with post meeting research and even helped out with creating spread sheets. We’re only a relatively small business and Mike provided the opportunity of tapping in to some big business ideas”
