Too often, people are paralyzed by complexity, confusion and fear before making strategic choices about their business.

Continuously simplifying your thinking to accelerate your business will put you back in control.
Through simplifying your thinking by using the Simplicity Scan you will achieve alignment on the fundamental areas of your business enabling you to focus, prepare, deliver and grow!
Let’s bring clarity, confidence and control back into your relationship with your business!

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains”. – Steve Jobs

Dedicated to creating experiences that enable growth, Chris discovered early on in his career that his super-power was seeing the big picture of a business and knowing instinctively what was working or not. His holistic view enable him to create practical and creative solutions to what others thought were complex, even impossible, problems.
Through his various professional experiences, including tech executive roles, managing director, producing feature films and mentoring start-ups, he began to see patterns emerge of what some businesses where doing well, and others weren’t. This eventually evolved into the Simplicity Scan, which was co-created with the help of countless others who benefited from the thinking over the years.
He is available for coaching, should you need support for yourself or your team…
These are confusing times. If you want to get rid of the clutter and focus on what will really help you to accelerate your business have a look at the ebullient canvas as we did for two businesses. Chris, with whom we have worked before, has guided us through the process and helped us to focus on what will really push us forward. The outcome: simplicity of strategy and clarity of execution. If you want a few days of fun and innovation, Chris is your guy!
Frequently reflecting on your company is a must for every entrepreneur, but often falls short due to everyday challenges. Working with the simple business canvas of ebullient was an easy entrance to straighten and refresh my thoughts on my changing business environment. It is both a simple and a confronting process, though insightful and powerful. I’m convinced that it will accelerate your business as well. You will love the way Chris leads you through the process. He has the ability to ask the right questions at the right time and provides a trusted and fun atmosphere to get the best output for you, your team and your customers.
I can highly recommend trying out the simple business canvas. Not only does it help you as an entrepreneur to ask yourself the right questions on what you’d like to achieve, but also it facilitates you to make the connection to how and with whom you’d like to achieve this for your business. I does it with utmost simplicity and it does not take a lot of your time. It does focuses on the key topics you always need to take into account and balance when starting, growing or improving your organisation (big and small). In this way it will support and accelerate your own thought and decision making process.
Using the simple business canvas was simple, quick and insightful. Chris guided us carefully to build it up in steps and iterate so that the final version feels robust. It makes a coherent, focused plan to achieve strategic aims faster while taking account of the realities on the ground. Chris has a talent for fostering teamwork while clearly identifying pain points and addressing them; and creates a fun atmosphere to accomplish work.
I was skeptical at first, being a serial entrepreneur with four companies under my belt. However, the Ebullient experience was super helpful as I pushed through a pivot in our strategy. Working with Ebullient felt like a conversation to me. I’d answer someone else’s questions, and that would give me new ideas (super quickly) to ponder. It felt much faster and more certain than just thinking through things alone. If you need to change directions (or set your first direction), I recommend Ebullient!
