Field of Expertise
Michael Deane is a UK based business consultant, marketing expert, and a social media aficionado, with extensive experience in brand building. He runs Qeedle.com as the editor in chief.
With a number of small businesses and startups he helped grow under his belt, Michael’s main idea is sharing his expertise with a wider audience. Steering a business in the right direction is a challenging task, which is why his expert knowledge accumulated and his good communication skills have proven to be the right combination for success.
The ability to succinctly pinpoint a problem and offer the right solution is one of Michael’s top strengths. His approach to consulting and giving advice is “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” Hence his to-the-point and no-nonsense tips in the articles he writes.
Michael’s career as a consultant doesn’t rely only on the theory – he started out as an entrepreneur and learned the ropes of running a business on his own. After a 10-year stint in the entrepreneurial waters, Michael decided to use the wealth of experience he picked up along the way and put it to good use.
The topics he covers in his blog posts are versatile and go from A to Z of starting, running, and promoting a business. Building successful business plans, dealing with budgeting challenges, and hiring top talent for your company.
Besides helping others build their companies from scratch and writing educative blog posts about everything related to business, Michael is also an avid hiker.
He believes that entrepreneurship and hiking are very similar – both require careful planning, stamina, and persistence. Take one step at a time – this applies to both endeavours.
Michael graduated from Manchester University with a degree in Business Management.
