Business development
for professionals

About us

We are a team of Business Development professionals based in the South of England. We share a common belief that many aspects of sales and marketing can be delivered better on an outsourced basis. We try to be straight-talking and candid in our communication with clients and like to augment our professionalism with a bit of personality and even the odd dollop of humour.

“The BD Consultancy really understand why some people are not natural business builders. They are great at helping them to win work by boosting confidence and the right activity.”

Neil MacDonald – Lloyds

We also try to do our bit in the community, with our sustainability policy and supporting charities like The Princes Trust and Deki. are a microfinance charity that provides loans and business training to people in the developing world,   enabling them to work their way out of poverty.
