Why Gary King?

Hailing from Yorkshire, Gary King’s hallmark is his straight talking, no-nonsense approach. His passion for supporting the growth of SME businesses comes with a steadfast belief that success is determined and measured by FREEDOM and choice. His mission is to decrease the heart-breaking high failure rate of SMEs.


A rapidly rising star on the national stage, Gary explains how his ‘Freedom to Choose’ model helps business owners, typically turning over £1-5 million, make sense of how, where & when to invest their time and energy for the best business and personal results.

As he believes that this insight should also be shared with the next generation, he sits on the board of the Young Enterprise Association and works with schools as an Enterprise Advisor to develop their careers strategy.


For small business owners their main focus is with cashflow & time management, but for medium-sized businesses, it’s all about developing talent & remaining agile. That’s why Gary is championing a growing trend of corporates hiring SMEs to outsource areas of specialism, like marketing, product development and operational design amongst others.


In order to have true freedom, all businesses need to have clarity on their purpose, their pricing & income models, their team and their growth & exit strategies. Gary’s keynotes & workshops provide practical advice and implementation for business owners in all of these areas.


His ‘Freedom To Choose’ model was born from a very defining moment and a personal revelation while running his own business. Since then, he’s refined the process and has spent the last twelve years Business Mentoring his clients with online, 1-2-1 and peer group support programmes, as well as launching and running two further profitable businesses.


Gary’s key skill is being able to draw on his corporate and fast-growth SME expertise to dial into the issues holding a company back and then help his clients scale faster by increasing profitability, productivity and flexibility.

Not only does he explain how to do this without compromising lifestyle goals, he explains how it can be done to achieve your personal lifestyle goals.
