Profile - Carl Wyatt

In Dec 2009, in the middle of a recession, I finally decided it was probably time to utilise 25+ years of business experience, leaving my employer of the last 10 years and setting up as a self-employed, independent Business Process and Management Consultant.

 

Agreeing a conservative 3 month target review of progress with my accountant (before deciding whether to “get a proper job that pays the bills instead”) I embarked on my first consultancy commission with a national manufacturing Company.

 

At the review point, the consultancy workload was such that there was no going back and so amend ltd was born, in April 2010.  Since that point I have been working on various Client commissions (and re-commissions that have all been generated from previous work referrals).

  • Broad and comprehensive business knowledge/experience
