Mark Harris

mark_harrisBefore Mark started Enterprise Doctor, he stripped his CV down to the basics – what had he done, done consistently, and done well? The answer was two things – he’d taken nothing and turned it into something, and he’d taken something which wasn’t working as well as it should, and made it work.
This includes starting, building and then selling an office stationery company, turning round a dying division within a US owned corporate, building business engagement within a College, a Chamber of Commerce and elsewhere, running a range of diverse small organisations and working effectively (often for free) in the third sector.

So how does this qualify him to help a health tech business? It doesn’t – there are others in the HTI family who can do that. What it qualifies him to do is to help you stop and think about the nuts & bolts of your business, the processes, the strategy.

You know your stuff, he knows his. Together, you can be a very effective team.
