When it comes to Deri Llewellyn-Davies, the phrase ‘suited and booted’ takes on a new meaning: there aren’t many men out there who spend their days in a pinstriped three-piece and their spare time climbing the highest summits in the world. Deri loves business and adventure in equal measure and his same motivation underpins both: a fascination with life and a curiosity that always leads him to ask, “Why?”
That questioning is key in his role as CEO of Business Growth International, as he helps leaders in both FTSE 500 and entrepreneurial companies to take their businesses (and themselves) to the next level. With over 15 years’ experience of the commercial markets, Deri knows that whatever issues his clients are facing – from funding shortages to management fall-outs, corporate redundancy to bankruptcy – he’s personally been there and got the T-shirt. And it’s exactly that experience which fuels his ability to look at their business and connect the hidden dots, to lead him to the heart of the issue.
