Blog: Leonie BarrieIncrease profitability – for free

Leonie Barrie | 26 June 2009

UK clothing firms are being given an opportunity to let a leading business expert analyse their businesses with a view to increasing profitability and reducing costs.

What’s not to like? Well the only downside is that they’ll have to open their doors to a film crew from the BBC too, which is filming the results for a new TV series.

But with so many companies struggling to survive and grow through the economic downturn, I would have thought that the chance of introducing new ways of working – including engaging all workers in the day-to-day running of the business – would be an offer too good to turn down.

The free consultancy service is provided by top academic Dr Paul Thomas, who promises to work around the company and its existing commitments.

If you're interested in receiving Paul's help and would like to be part of a BBC series, contact Gemma Collins on 02920 322572 or Nick Andrews on 02920 323755.
