"The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.”
Welcome To The Original Cabal Cloud Company
Welcome to my website. Its purpose is to explain to those interested in working with me, what it is I endeavour to do. I have spent over 30 years with Boards of Directors, charity trustees, and other teams, as a Non-Executive Director or additional team member, which has given me sound experience and insight into working with groups of people to unlock and improve their performance.
“I have had the pleasure of serving as CFO on two Boards chaired by Rollo Clifford. His skills as chairman resulted in a keen focus on the issues under discussion and an ability to cut through the static to clarify and summarise the arguments and required actions. In both cases his task was made more challenging because of the financial situation of the two companies resulting in interesting meetings and difficult decisions. It is at times like these that having a strong and experienced chairman proved invaluable.”

Sometimes groups find it difficult to discuss complex or controversial topics, which is where an experienced mentor can bridge gaps and help build Team effectiveness, and improve the venture's success. That is what I do.
I meet with each director, manager or key player to hear what their version of the group's aims, objectives, strategies are, and what they see as their responsibilities. We then meet together to complete the real, living operating plan - and implement it.
Rollo has a history of providing venture capital to give private equity to start-ups or emerging businesses with high growth potential. He typically invests in technology or innovative companies. He has a wide network of contacts worldwide.
Rollo Clifford is a District Councillor for West Somerset DC, in the Exmoor National Park. He is actively involved locally working to improve this beautiful but underfunded area and ensure quality Broadband access to unlock the potential of all.
There are a number of books I have in my library, which I share with you in the hope that you will be as inspired as I was when I read them. I encourage you to read as many of them as you wish, as I am sure you will enjoy them.
Any Other Business! We would be glad to hear from you with your thoughts or ideas on other topics around strategy, implementation, venture capital and beautiful Exmoor. We look forward to hearing from you.
"A great motivator! A particularly creative man, enjoy him!"

"Rollo brings to every task a very high level of energy and enthusiasm couple with a terrifically positive sense of purpose and of optimism. He has strong technical skills in areas of group behaviour and achievement, the ability to decipher the coded messages of your staff and the courage to cause them to be aired and addressed. This involvement always triggers a response. I have known Rollo for over a dozen years. In that time I have seen him as an instructor, enthusiast, discussion leader, and consultant. I recommend him to all who feel the need to rethink their sense of purpose and their place in the world."
"Rollo's most direct involvement resulted in a very high profile team, sure of its standards and confident of meeting its stretch targets. He helped us achieve this by challenging our assumptions and disturbing our sense of contemplacency. This team was a self regulating group for years after Rollo disengaged from the effort."
"Rollo Clifford certainly had an influence on the direction of our company in helping to create a structure which was extremely successful. His ability to cajole, persuade and drive issues to fruition is beyond question, at the same time creating a sense of strength and determination among people he is working with. I have no hesitation in recommending Rollo's expertise."
