About Me

Andrew Ludlam – The Business Plan Writer


andrewFor over a decade I've been helping business owners to plan and grow.

I'm a qualified business adviser, consultant and trainer, having worked with many hundreds of business owners from start-ups through to large corporations.

However in truth, what really makes me qualified to help, is that I don't only write business plans for a living, I also run several businesses. I'm on your side of the desk. So I know exactly what it takes to run a successful business, as well as understand the pressures and challenges you can sometimes face.

Aside from The Business Plan Writer, I also run Maverick Marketing Consultancy, for over 10 years I have helped professional service firms win high-value clients, gain a competitive edge in their market and scale to 6 and 7-figure companies.

Using 'real world' marketing insights, and my proprietary three-step growth system called the Business Growth Reset I uncover those hidden assets and overlooked opportunities to help great companies become even better

I am also the author of the Amazon 5-star rated book "Maverick Marketing: Essential Business-Building Strategies for Extraordinary Business Growth".

I am the founder of London Business Advice, Hertfordshire Business Advice and the Business Plan Network. I am a member of the Institute of Sales & Marketing Management, and was a funding panel member for the Fredericks Foundation. I also hold a number of Non-Executive Director and board level roles.

Business Advice Experience:


During the last 10 years, I must have worked with most of the business support agencies across London and the South East: Keeping It Simple Training, Exemplas, Reed in Partnership, Shaw Trust, Prevista to name a few. I was also a lead business plan and marketing trainer for Business Link London and Business Link East, and specially commissioned by Business Link London to design and deliver their sales and marketing seminars across London.

I'm a regular contributor to both offline and online publications, including Better Business Magazine, Enterprise Nation, The Marketing Donut and is4profit. Most recently I was asked to contribute an expert business planning chapter for the book "The Crowdsourced Guide to Business".

Whether you require a business plan for a start-up venture or existing business, I can provide a truly tailored and comprehensive business planning service to improve your chances of securing funds. Please contact me today to see how I can help.
