Our story

Crystal Planning was founded by Frances Fawcett.  After almost two decades with IT companies including Borland International, Canon (UK) and Microsoft Corporation, Frances spent several years providing marketing consultancy and global programme management to a variety of small and large companies.  This included global management of a licensing programme for Microsoft Corporation.

In 2007 she became the co-owner of a small manufacturing business in Somerset that designed and produced products sold all over the world.  Here she gained hands-on experience of running and managing a small business on a day-to-day basis.  This led to further opportunities as a consultant, trainer and coach in the fields of business planning and international trade.

Having had an interest in personal development throughout her career, Frances is now providing coaching, training and support to owners and managers of businesses in the UK and overseas.  Frances believes in the power of the team and the value of in-depth experience so frequently partners with others to deliver the highest quality solutions.  Through her own experience and her partnerships, solutions include general business management, trading globally especially in North America, licensing and marketing.

Frances is a Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, a member of the Institute of Leadership and Management, and a Fellow of the Institute of Training and Occupational Learning.  Her interest in personal development and training spills over into her personal life where she is a volunteer Scout Leader holding a manager role and role as County Leadership and Management Trainer.
