Raymond Blin and Fiona Best Regional Partner Profile

Regional Partner Profile: Raymond Blin and Fiona Best Scotland West

"A great opportunity and a great career for the right-minded person."

Business Partnership | Raymond Blin and Fiona Best"We’ve been Business Partnership’s regional partner for Scotland West since the summer of 2016.  The franchise appealed to us for two reasons: we can operate the franchise alongside our existing consultancy work helping businesses to develop and grow and access start-up loans, and the role fits
into our skill sets.

I (Raymond) was formerly national operations partner for two of the UK’s top ten accountancy and business services firms and have also operated in the business recovery and corporate finance sectors. My specialism is strategic management, which often involved exit strategies. I received useful training from the three senior partners, including valuable marketing advice.

One of the key benefits is that our fellow partners come from a wide range of backgrounds which means that sound advice is only a quick phone call or email away. For example, when I had a query about a valuation I called Business Partnership chairman Alistair Glaze. He guided us through the situation, saving hours of research. We look forward to general meetings with the other regional partners across the UK which allow us to share experiences and ideas. Our focus is more on midsize corporates, which involves liaising with professional firms including accountants and lawyers. After over a dozen years working in England, it has been enjoyable to renew old acquaintances on returning to Scotland.

A Business Partnership franchise is a great opportunity and a great career for the right-minded person. My one piece of advice to anyone considering a franchise would be to network among the business community in your area and make valuable connections – don’t sit at your desk and wait for people to call."
