Providing you with the tools
and resources you need
to succeed

Non-Executive Squared Resources

You might find this Resources section a little different to the resources found on other business development and mentoring websites. I really hope you do!

There’s any number of forms and planners available out there to download, and I’ll probably include my own favoured tools and documents along the way.

But I am determined to be real so you’ll find that my Resources, whilst subject specific, are produced in a blog-style which explores issues and situations I’ve encountered in an open and honest way - including successes and 'could have done better’ scenarios.

So, yes, you’ll find some key principles outlined which you can take and use as business tools - but you’ll see them placed in the context of real situations that I have experienced myself. Hope that works for you!
