Headed up by Roma Bhowmick who has 26 years’ experience supporting business’s growth strategies. Her career began in the City of London working for a Blue chip service based organisation, culminating in my role as MD/Head of Division in 1997.
Subsequent to this, in 2001 Roma moved into the technology sector. Having spotted a market opportunity, she and her partners launched what became a fast growth business which delivered innovative technology solutions.
In 2003, having achieved the business goals she personally set out to achieve, she sold her half of the business to her partner and became a Business Consultant helping similar SMEs with aggressive growth aspirations.
She has spent the last 15 years consulting and coaching SME business owners and their teams to support their growth strategies both as a Growth Coach under the Government funded Growth Accelerator Scheme and as a Consultant working in her own consultancy based business.
Her specific area of expertise has been in challenging and helping to construct business strategy and supporting organisations and teams through change.
In 2006 Roma was awarded Freedom of the City of London for ‘services to management consultancy’ in recognition of her work to help businesses succeed in London. She is also in the final stages of writing her thesis for her Doctorate which has focused its research on the impact of networks and networking on strategies for growth in ‘fast growth’ SMEs.

Crane & Staples are a firm of solicitors, members of the Law Society of England & Wales and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. We are specialists in our fields. Our solicitors and Legal Executives are highly qualified, well trained and many hold additional specialist qualifications.
We are entirely independent and put our advice to our clients first. Unlike many organisations we do not pay referral fees.

Over 90% of our work comes to us in this way.
The Law Society has a quality accreditation called Lexcel. In order to achieve Lexcel any firm of solicitors must comply with a rigorous scheme that includes everything from a Business Plan to a proper system for managing files and the training and development of staff. It is not easy to achieve. We have had our Lexcel accreditation since 2003. Less than 15% of all firms in England and Wales have a Lexcel accreditation and few have retained it as long as us.

The Book Midwife®
The Book Midwife coaches and mentors business experts across the globe through every stage of planning, editing, writing and publishing excellent books quickly, building their profiles as leading experts and real thought leaders in their field. People start with a little idea and end up with a finished manuscript ready to publish, in just 90 days. The company has a 100% success rate if the client follows the unique advice and guidance and puts their writing hours in.
9 out of 10 people never even start writing their book, or start but never complete it. Many prospective authors find it incredibly difficult to write a book because, like many other things in life, it’s a complex undertaking that’s hard to do if you don’t know how to go about it. Worse still, it’s hard to keep up the pace without the right kind of external encouragement, guidance and support and that is where The Book Midwife comes in. A good book coach can add value, from guiding the author on style and format, to content, dealing with challenges like writer’s block, procrastination and indecision, all the way through to helping the author understand their market, how they should reach that market and how to get the best return on their efforts.
The Book Midwife is now known as the place where business experts can go to get support with their books, to write and publish them fast. The company offers private and group coaching programmes, seminars, workshops and retreats, as well as products to help aspiring authors make a powerful start, stay focused and create excellent books. Since its inception in 2002, The Book Midwife has helped over 1000 people to write and publish their books.
The multi-award-winning 90-day program from idea to finished publishing-ready manuscript is a unique methodology which has been tried, tested and proven. More details on our website here.
