About Me

Lloyd Thompson, having dedicated over 20 years to the corporate world, navigating through various technical and leadership roles, found himself desiring a change.

Lloyd wondered how his adept skills in People Management, Projects/Operations, and Process Improvement could be utilised in a different, perhaps more dynamic, environment.

He discovered an opportunity to provide “Director of Operations” services on a fractional basis to medium size businesses that are more nimble (and interesting!).

Today, Lloyd and his team continue to serve a pick and mix of online business owners with teams of 10-30 staff, mostly marketing agencies and e-commerce but also coaching, education, real-estate to a variety of other businesses.

What is interesting, is that even though the business offerings are different, the challenges they need help with are often very similar:

- The owner is overwhelmed with run activities instead of focussing on implementing their vision and working on strategy.

-There are people challenges. Are the right people in the right seats? Why do I have to give them all the solutions? How do I resolve this conflict?

- Projects and Operations could be running smoother.

For Lloyd, it has been a delight moving to support online businesses. Things move much quicker. He is able to help them with simple and effective solutions which have been distilled from the very best frameworks that worked in corporate land, without the red tape!

Lloyd has since published “9 ways to leave your day-to-day operations” to help business owners know where their blind spots might be and how a Director of Operations can help them if they want to delegate these “ways” to someone else.
