Training & Events
Meeting with Steve on a regular basis has been extremely useful for us to get feedback and advice from someone with such a wealth of business experience. He always gives us useful, impartial and honest advice on any issues we may be experiencing that really helps us focus on our priorities. If you have any obstacles to overcome, or just want an experienced third party to look over a specific part of your business then I'd highly recommend speaking to Steve. You'll be glad you did.Simon Edwards – Beanify / The UK App Company

Our experienced business mentor, Steve Baker understands the challenges facing business owners today and delivers practical, supportive and constructive advice.
After graduating in Electronic Engineering and an MSc in Systems Analysis, Steve Baker worked for 10 years at British Aerospace in a range of technical, sales and managerial roles. He was then sponsored by British Aerospace on an MBA at Henley Management College which he completed in 2000 before moving to take on a role selling very high value out-sourcing contracts for Logica. Having always wanted to run his own company, he took a very big step and left Logica to start an engineering software company in a small hut on an industrial estate. 5 years later, and after three entries in the Sunday Times Fastest Growing Technology Businesses, the company employed over 200 people on 3 continents and had a list of blue chip engineering clients around the world. Since then Steve has qualified as an accountant and set up his own Accountancy Practice Baker and Co.
