About Me

Business consultancy in Brighton
You have big plans. I bring them to life.

The Catandra Team
Coaching Client

Business consultant in Brighton, East Sussex

My name is Andy Wheeler. I founded Catandra in 2015, having worked in business for more than 20 years.

Why did I move into business consultancy? Partly because I recognise the challenges of being a business owner. I’ve been there.

Mostly, though, it’s because I’m a natural problem-solver and I like helping business owners. When you’re working hard for consistently disappointing results, I can see solutions that others can’t.

I’d call it magic — but actually, it comes down to strategic thinking.

OK, you’ll want some proof that I know what I’m talking about:

Why hire a business consultant? What’s in it for you?

Put simply, I aim to deliver 5 times your investment in me. And save you money in the process. However, it’s more than that…

You’re busy with the day job, so it’s hard to focus on the future. This is your chance to see the bigger, strategic picture.

Do you have great plans, but no time to get them beyond the idea stage? I bring those projects to life.

Here’s what’s in it for you:

Increased profits

Your plans have become a reality. They’re making a difference, and generating profits for the business.

more energy

Your mojo is back. You have as much excitement and energy as when you first started the business.

less stress

You’re no longer working for little reward. You have more time, projects are paying off and you can relax.


The business processes are running like clockwork. There are no obstacles getting in the way of productivity.

better work-life balance

You have more time for your family and friends. Take a holiday, restart a hobby… or just go to the pub occasionally.

business growth

Where do you want the business to go? You can finally focus on growth, so how far you take it is up to you.
