Stephen Sandor

Founder, Inspiring Business

Stephen works with business owners who are looking to scale their business. The scaling may be growth, but it could be time, people or profit.

Each business has their own unique culture that has been at the core of their success, and each business has a unique set of problems, so the solutions need to be the right ones at the right time. Stephen helps guide the owners to making the best possible decision based on the information available and the experience of the team.

Something Interesting About You:

As someone who enjoys dabbling in foreign languages, I featured for several months as a Mandarin-speaking foreign boss in a weekly television drama series in Singapore - with live sound no less, and became for a short time involved in Singapore's Speak Mandarin campaign.  "If he can do it, anyone can....!" perhaps!
