Professional Services

After a career working in Professional Services, Mervyn Stanley knows what it takes to grow your Accountancy or Legal practice.

Bringing in new clients is essential to the health of every professional services firm. And nothing is more central to the success than an effective business development strategy.

"It's essential that professional services firms identify opportunities and convert them into relationships and new revenue streams. This could mean cross-selling existing clients or adding new practice areas to your firm, geographic expansion, or setting up procedures to put in place a Whitespace or Business Development accelerator plan".

Bespoke Business Development

Most Lawyers or Accountants are not natural business developers, however, with the right personal development, many can quickly move up the business development performance curve with training that recognises their unique skills, experience and practice focus.

Food & Drink

We have been delighted to work closely with businesses in the Food and Drink sector. Typically offering outsourced sales and consultancy resource, both here in Scotland and at worldwide events such as Gulfood in Dubai, as well as providing Non Executive support for firms with high growth aspirations.

Undoubtedly the pandemic challenges for the sector make growth and development an accelerated priority. New demographics, new technologies and new lifestyle trends will profoundly impact the opportunities and challenges for Scottish food and drink businesses. What works today may not work tomorrow.

A focused approach and smart use of market intelligence and resources can grow sales. We will apply this more widely to achieve significant market growth, drawing out consumer and market intelligence to identify the best opportunities in all key markets.

More importantly, there will be new markets, new ways of selling and new opportunities that don’t exist today. But with better use of intelligence and insights, and adaptable approaches, food and drink companies can target efforts and resources better, boost growth and realise ambitions.


Is it time to grow your construction business?

Are you looking to expand into new markets or geographical areas? Growing your construction business, regardless of whether you're just starting out or have been in the industry for years, requires careful planning. In order to strategically scale up your operations, you must ensure you will have the appropriate and available resources (workers, equipment, etc.) to handle the growth.

Our experience in the construction and home improvements sector tells us that businesses can’t just sit back and expect more work to just fall in their lap. Companies have to proactively seek out new opportunities to retain and grow their business.

With better use of digital intelligence and insights, and adaptable approaches, companies can target efforts and resources better, boost growth and realise ambitions.


We have had the privilege of working with a wide range of companies across many different sectors. Here’s what they have to say about us.

Mervyn continues to be great support to both myself and the business in achieving our growth ambitions. We have benefited hugely from his forward thinking, guidance and energy and look forward to continuing this in the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mervyn and Cameron Carnegie if you have plans to scale your business.

Ian Joy , Managing Director ERG Scotland Ltd

Once we decided to source training for our Business Development and Account Management teams, we turned to Cameron Carnegie for assistance. I was initially a little apprehensive about the training taking place digitally, but Merv delivered an excellent, engaging training course really ensuring that he took time to involve each member of our team, providing them with simple tools to use going forward. I was genuinely blown-away by the improvement across all of the team and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cameron Carnegie if you are looking to improve the performance of your Sales Team.
