About

Norman HousdenOperating as an Independent Business Consultant, since founding OptiMatrix in 2003, I have delivered multiple business improvement projects in all areas of commercial, procurement, supply chain and operations management.

This follows a senior corporate career in a wide variety of businesses and markets across the UK, Europe and USA, in which I developed and led both small scale and major business improvement projects.

Over the years I have learnt that to develop and implement sustainable change to deliver business improvement, in any business, it is essential to ensure that both the management and employees are fully involved and bought into the activity. This can require a change in the culture of the business which can be the most complex aspect. Therefore whether implementing strategic and operational change, or developing robust proposals for new business, the services are delivered with “real world” experience.

OptiMatrix is based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, with convenient access to motorway networks, rail links and airports allowing easy reach to clients throughout the UK, Europe and further afield.

As the requirements of each client are different, services are tailored and provided at the locations that are most appropriate.

Often it is most effective to be based at the client’s sites for the majority of the project.
