Jeremy Old is TBD’s lead coach. His role is to help small to medium sized enterprises transform their productivity and profits. And he does this by applying Team Business Development (TBD) which comprises a set of powerful team planning methods.

During the last twenty-five years Jeremy has built a proven track record with TBD in over sixty SMEs and NGOs and in a variety of different industries.

TBD stands for Team Business Development. And this means all your people working together as a team towards building a better business. The results from this team based approach to business development can be staggering.


Have a look at our case studies. You will see examples of:


  • Profits up by 800%
  • Capital value up 500%
  • Productivity up by 57%
  • Production capacity doubled
  • Losses turned around in weeks
  • Transformed work cultures.


See the results for yourself

Did you know that the average UK worker wastes 50% of their time at work? This is not because they are idle or even incompetent but because much of the time ‘the system’ gets in the way of value-added working. So, the role of the coach is to use TBD’s unique team-based planning methods to work on the system with you and your people. And the overarching goal is to redesign the system to make it easier for people to do the right work right.


In this way, TBD gets your entire enterprise working as one team towards unified goals. The result is fewer mistakes, less waste, and bottlenecks, the removal of ‘unintended consequences’ and the high energy uptake of new ideas, and improvements. Check out our case studies to learn more.

As a taster of what TBD does, we offer a basic business health check. First off this health check discovers all sorts of hidden problems that are holding you back. But even more important, the health check then gets to the root cause of them. This service is guaranteed to save you thousands.


By the way, we will not take the job on if we don’t think you can make ten times the cost of our fees from potential savings and improvements. Call Jeremy Old on 0845 0945 819 for more information and learn about our money back guarantee.
