Leading consultants’ consultancy The Alchemy Network is appealing to so-called “directors on the dole” to invest in their own skills and experience and maintain their careers in the downturn.

More than 100,000 people are currently being made redundant every month, many of whom are CEOs, directors and highly qualified business professionals.

And David Abingdon, the CEO of Alchemy – which trains and supports business management consultants through extensive professional development to assist companies to become more successful, is urging those being made redundant or leaving professional jobs to realise how valuable that wealth of experience can be.

David, an entrepreneur who rose from a council house background to own a country estate and who has personally taken three businesses to multi-million pound status from a standing start, says that those losing their jobs should remember that they are also being offered new opportunities and can even benefit from the effects of the recession.

“Such experienced people, who have run businesses, worked to generate profits and customers and contributed to a company’s success, are exactly the sort of people we are keen to speak to,” says David, who was formerly the founder of the Quantum Organisation and Insurety PLC.

“Sometimes, when you are in the situation where your existing role is gone, it can be hard not to feel despondent and to forget to properly value what you have to offer. Yet the whole Alchemy ethos is about showing just such experienced individuals how to harness their talents and make a huge difference to companies, while creating a successful career for themselves in the process.

“The Alchemy process is so straightforward that it works whatever the state of the economy and whatever kind of business. In fact, our consultants can have an even more dramatic effect when times are tough, because companies are struggling to see more than day-to-day difficulties and business owners are so consumed that they can no longer see the bigger picture.

“One of the professionals who attended our last course covered his course fees within a month and already has three clients with others in the offing. Another who attended last autumn now earns a sizeable six-figure sum advising companies and has more work than he has time to say yes to. All this is easily achievable when you combine their business acumen with our tried-and-tested, results-driven techniques.”

The Alchemy Network is a fast expanding international business development consulting organisation, operating UK, Ireland, Australia, the US, Germany, Switzerland, France and Nigeria, with Canada and New Zealand about to come on-stream. For more information on The Alchemy Network, go to
