Play Hard...

Dirk is a Partner of Blank White Page, the coaching and consulting business that specialises in entrepreneurs and business-owners. Dirk’s theory of marketing and management stems from his early days as a radio DJ: ‘play the wrong song and nobody listens’. He is an accredited Henley Business School Coach, and is in the process of completing their MSc programme in Behavioural Change.

 Work hard...

Organisations need constant change. But it’s the way they deal with it that separates the successful from the less successful. Blank White Page helps business leaders to navigate towards positive outcomes more quickly by providing Alternative Thinking™.

We work with the leadership teams of family businesses to help identify the future and build appropriate structures; we worked with merged divisions of major organisations to help effect successful outcomes; we worked with founders and owners to build succession teams for a pain-free exit. Whatever the need for change you encounter, we can help.

Our thinking comes from our experience starting, running and selling successful businesses: nine in total, across marketing, product development, manufacturing and media. As a result, we have worked with clients in most areas of business, from food to appliances to construction to heavy industry to retail. In each business, the product or service, the culture or attitude, may be wildly different, but the people and teams that run them have much in common. So we work with the people.

As Henley Business School Master Coaches, we integrate coaching principles and techniques to help our clients create high-performing leadership teams. We don’t use jargon or hijack the latest management speak. We believe that plain-speaking communicates better and quicker. So you’ll find us no-nonsense and easy to work with. And we don’t stop with ideas. Understanding that it’s the implementation of sustained change that really counts, we can help you and your team put thinking into practice. We’ve put together marketing strategies, planned relocations and hired new people.

You might say, ask not what Blank White Page can do for you, but ask what you could do with the resources of Blank White Page.
