Chris Dunn of The TDA Transitions & Learning Organisation Ltd has been advising senior business people on career transition matters for over 30 years. He has a particular interest in releasing enterprise potential and he coaches, facilitates, consults and teaches in this sphere.
His original Entrepreneur Development Programme enabled 1,700+ executives to make the transition from corporate life into being their own boss. Chris later applied his enterprise understanding in the franchise sector and worked with some of the biggest brands such as BP Connect, Boots Opticians, Pizza Hut, Costa Coffee and Snap-on Tools.
Chris manages this section of the Working Free website, pointing to what you need to know and where you can get it from. He has a number of published works to his credit including Who Are Your Best People? (Kotze and Dunn – FT/Prentice Hall) and Starting a Business on a Shoestring (Penguin). He is also the designer of a range of self-help training and development kits including Making Redundancy Work for You, Self-Marketing: A Guide to Creative Job Search and Business Success through People, a training analysis kit for small businesses.
To accompany his work in this section, Chris can make available chapters from Starting a Business on a Shoestring. He can also provide access to BASIS (Business Attitude Style Information System). This is an enterprise profile which provides insights into behaviour strengths and possible barriers to success for those wishing to set up their own business. Further details are contained in Additional Resources at the end of this section.
