Introduction to Gordon McAlpine's Advisory & Mentoring Services


My Non-Exec Director advisory and mentoring services are grounded in a proven, practical growth model outlined in my best-selling book 'Scale Up Millionaire'. I have 30 years of experience in business Sales & Marketing and always aim to use that experience to provide true VALUE and make a real DIFFERENCE to clients' businesses. Every business has to make sales (and plenty of them) in order to grow and become successful, but the stats show that the majority of businesses fail to reach and maintain growth objectives.
As an Entrepreneur myself, I'm passionate about advising & mentoring high potential organisations of all sizes to achieve successful scale ups & lucrative exits.

“Over the last 2 decades I have worked with many non-exec boards and advisers and in most cases I have not seen a good R.O.I. until now. The Table Partnership is different, from the start they engaged with the utmost professionalism leveraging their combined experience to drive forward. They are not afraid to get their hands dirty and have delivered incredible value in the last 3 months. Thank you, Gordon McAlpine & Guy Hipwell, for the contribution of your partnership!”
