Fiona Shafer, Managing Director

Fi has a passion for working with entrepreneurs from high growth start ups to established multi million pound businesses – with the aim of supporting them to be the very best that they can be. As a business strategist, Fi is an ideas person and problem solver who works in a practical, down to earth and light-hearted way. Working with tricky board and team situations seems to have become an unexpected specialism in recent years.

Following an 18 year career in recruitment management and then as a senior adviser with the Business Link network, Fi established her own consultancy, Omega Blue, in 2002. A previous winner of the DTI’s SFEDI Award for Business Advice for England, Fi went on to join Phil Green at the HUB 100 in 2004 and then co-owner when Fi and Phil took on the business as MDHUB Ltd in 2009, becoming MD in 2015.
