Patricia Bacon Consulting was established to help effect business growth for companies who want to scale. Patricia coaches Company owners to ensure they are working ‘on’ the business rather than ‘in’ it and develop their strategy. This also critically means establishing the right senior team to be able to build the business. She works with companies to ensure the ‘Sales Engine’ is at the heart of their growth strategy. She also challenges how businesses can get more from their clients and develop deeper relationships that impact the bottom line.
Prior to setting up Patricia Bacon Consulting she worked at The Instant Group and was integral in running and building the business internationally and securing PE Investment. This included managing the growth to 100+ people, opening international offices in Australia and the US, recruiting, leading and growing Teams globally and creating game-changing strategic development initiatives. As a huge advocate of Culture Patricia saw Instant placed in the Sunday Times ‘Best Companies to Work For’ 5 years running achieving a top rating of 23rd position.
Patricia loves being active and indulges as much as she can in skiing, BMF and long distance cycling and is riding from London to Sydney over 25 legs. Whilst her Marathon days are over she still participates in half marathons and has a great interest in Meditation and Mindfulness together with yoga in an effort to slow down a little and stretch more. She has a huge passion for all things Spanish and gets great pleasure in speaking the language.
