Tall Man Business is Simon Devonshire’s blog.
I’ve had the good fortune to have worked with some remarkably talented people. This blog shares lessons learned in order to help others succeed.
I’ve always had a clear sense of purpose: to see people and businesses reach their fullest potential.
I am passionate about the success of businesses and am fascinated and energised by the people who create them.
The aim of this blog:
To inspire people to be entrepreneurial.
To provide entrepreneurs with constructive help, tips and practical advice.
Avoid this blog if you’re not interested in business; entrepreneurialism; start-ups; digital; innovation.
This blog is not:
- aimed exclusively at tall people
- aimed just at men
Why “Tall Man Business”?
I have numerous interests, this blog is just about business; commerce; and entrepreneurialism - I decided to wrap that content under a name. One day I’ll blog the story behind the name.
About Simon Devonshire
For a start, I am tall. 6’ 7” in-fact.
I have worked for a number of large corporate organisations across a highly diverse range of industries – everything from fmcg (Heinz, Spillers); to travel (Thomas Cook, Going Places) to retail (The Post Office, Total petrol); to telco (Virgin Media, O2).
I ran the B2B division of O2 UK for five years; worked with a team of more than 1,000 people; accountable for over €1bn revenue pa; managing the needs and expectations of hundreds of thousands of business customers across the UK.
I have also helped create six new / small businesses, three of which have generated multi-million £ revenues. I currently balance my interest in small businesses with one main job.
