The problem we solve

Most business owners are very confident in the day-to- day management of their business and dealing with customer service and sales. Business owners confidence is generally lower in financial management and business planning.

Through our successes and the challenges, we believe high quality planning is the key to achieving great results. We have a shared passion for working with ambitious business owners to achieve their personal and business goals through business modelling and planning

Our main purpose is to work with you to create a high quality plan to build business confidence, providing clarity for the business future and identifying areas for business improvement to grow the business.

Working one to one or with teams the aim is  improve your business through strategic planning, profit improvement and cash flow improvement. We also work on improving business value for businesses as well as shaping up businesses for sale.

The starting point is to identify where you are now and your desired state to improve your current business model. The next stage is to focus on the products and services you sell and how that impacts on your profitability, equity growth and cash.

Once a solid base has been created and clear goals have been established the next phase is to create an enhanced business model and build a high performance business.

You will have access to proven systems, strategies and processes to support your business. You will have the benefit of having a  business advisor who can explore  business improvement strategies  for your business.

The dashboard is then developed and key performance measures are put in place to put the plan into action and to track progress on a monthly basis. We ensure the performance measures track all of the key areas of your business and not just the financial measure.

 

 

Business Programmes

We work with our clients at 3 main stages of their business development. On all 3 programmes we carry out an in depth review with you to identify your current issues and challenges so we all have a common understanding of our starting point. With all programmes our goal is to give you a clear way forward and a plan you have belief in that we will work together with you to implement.

Breakthrough

This programme is aimed at new businesses with investment available or businesses have have commenced trading and now need support to scale and grow their business.

We start by stress testing your idea to see if there is a viable business model. We test, research and adapt your proposition and build a financial model to prove it is going to generate the income for you and provide value for your clients.

We maximise the chances of success by rigorously reviewing your plan and setting clear milestones and targets to track progress and mitigate risk.

Accelerate

This programme is aimed at businesses that now have systems and processes in place and a team and we can then accelerate the business turnover.

Innovate

This programme is aimed at businesses that have achieved their original goals but are now market leaders and are facing increasing competition.
