We are Dan and Emma and we are The Curious Companions. We share a passion for small businesses, we thoroughly enjoy working together, and we love a new challenge. We are excited to bring our joint experience to support like-minded people who share our vision of bringing life-changing medical devices, services and technologies to life.

Our story

We have enjoyed working together for several years in the medical device sector. During this time, we discovered a shared commitment to helping people and a desire to share our knowledge.

Through our combined skills, experience, and knowledge we can passionately support the development of your medical business from the embryonic stage through to market and beyond. We are realistic and practical in our approach; we know that cashflow and profits are essential to every business, but we believe that people and purpose should be the driving force to create a medical-focused business which is resilient, ethical, and successful.

We created The Curious Companions to follow our passion and help businesses to achieve success through purpose. We will work with you and support you on your journey as you grow and develop your business towards your own vision of success.


Creator, out of the box thinker, roll up my sleeves doer, all day long dreamer.

I have both clinical and commercial experience having worked as a Physiotherapist in the NHS before moving into clinical sales, management and then Director level roles within the Medical Device Manufacturing Industry.

I believe that people are the centre of every business and people and relationships have always been central to my career. I took the decision to complete an MBA and focus on leadership, management and business development. The importance of understanding yourself and those people around you cannot be underestimated in developing relationships in your own team or with customers and clients.

It is the experience and knowledge that I have gained over the years that I am passionate about sharing, the good experiences and the bad, the mistakes and successes, the lows and the highs. Emma and I will try to help you not to make the same mistakes we have made, ultimately aiming for business success, enjoyment, and happiness.

When not working I enjoy spending time with my family, rock climbing, running, walking Coco my dog and playing in the sea. My focus outside of work centres around family, friends, food and fun.


Free thinker, number cruncher, problem solver, all day long dreamer.

I am an experienced accountant and finance director, with a passion for helping businesses to understand and manage their finances and then supporting them to use this as a platform to make informed decisions on how best to develop their business strategy for the future.

I worked for many years as an accountant in practice, managing a small practice and working with a wide range of businesses in a variety of sectors, before moving to a finance director role with a small company, and then setting up The Curious Companions with Dan. I am a qualified accountant and chartered tax adviser, and I have recently completed a Masters Degree (MBA) focussing on strategic leadership.

My experiences have allowed me to build a wide range of skills across accounting and financial management, planning and implementation of business strategies, and business leadership. I believe that understanding your finances is critical to business success, therefore designing reports which are understandable and accessible to people without a financial background is a core part of my role.

When not at my desk I love being outdoors, especially by the coast, or in my kitchen baking.
