Independent Business Owners Support Services Ltd. (iBOSS) was set up by Peter Douglas, Phil Jones and John Landers who between them have a wide range of experience in most aspects required for running successful SME Business. All three have for some time recognised that many SME owners are reluctant to confide with others over the challenges they face in a business and often end up not being able to ‘see the wood from the trees’ IBOSS has been set up specifically to, as the name suggests, provide support services to the owners of independent businesses to help them plan and keep on the road to making their business successful. Peter has worked in Export sales for an internationally renowned heavy plant company before setting up several of his own businesses. Phil includes in his CV running the one of the largest hotel and conference centres in Europe based in Dublin alongside many other roles in the Leisure and Entertainment sector. John with an accounting background has nearly 40 years’ experience working in the SME funding and professional services sectors.
