    How we can help

SUPPORTING YOU & YOUR BUSINESS

There are lots of ways we can advise you on your decisions and provide strategic and practical support to help you achieve your goals. We understand the one thing business owners lack is time – quality time to think about the direction and focus of their business.

Our business advisory team know the type of questions to ask to bring together a fresh perspective. We have the technical expertise, business knowledge and financial understanding to support you so that you can focus on what’s important – growing your business.

We can help you to understand your business performance and identify what you can do to improve profit and create time.

PROVIDING A SOUNDING BOARD

Our team are here to listen to your ideas, concerns or opportunities, wherever and whenever you need us. We can add value by bringing our experience and expertise to your meetings to act as adviser, challenger, facilitator or chair.

Whether you need us at the end of the phone or sat around your boardroom table, you can rely on us to be there and be the critical friend you need to advise you on your decisions.

BUSINESS FUTURE READY REVIEW

A forward-looking and action-focused assessment of your business from the outside in; a process designed to identify recommendations to help you build future value.

A review would typically involve:

  • Initial meetings with owners and key directors to understand your goals
  • A tailored request for information such as financials, business plan, client & supplier information, etc.
  • Follow-up questions and clarifications if needed
  • Identifying actions you can take to capitalise on market opportunities; improve risk management, address specific challenges raised, optimise business performance, and ultimately build business value
  • Personal presentation of findings with business owners (and management team if appropriate)

STRATEGIC PLANNING SESSION

Let’s get together in our offices for the day so you can step away from your day-to-day pressures and distractions.

How we’ll use the time

  • Review your personal goals
  • Agree your business purpose
  • Revisit the business’s recent performance
  • Understand what’s working well and what isn’t
  • Identify issues and opportunities
  • Consider your “accountability chart” – do you have the right people accountable for the right things?
  • Discuss effective ways to implement actions and gain traction within your business

Depending on where your business is now, this may be building on existing work you’ve done to develop business plans, strategies and action plans.

PROFIT IMPROVEMENT MEETING

We’ll share approaches to action planning, systemisation and accountability which can help you turn plans and aspirations into reality.

  • A structured session, informed by your existing management information and plans, taking a systematic and strategic look at what else you can do to grow your business
  • Identifying action areas that will make the biggest difference

ONGOING BUSINESS STRATEGY MEETINGS

Committing to regular sessions is a powerful way to really help your business gain momentum and achieve your goals. We’ll bring a new perspective, one that understands your business, to act as a critical friend and helping you on an on-going basis.

How our support will help

  • Review your recent business performance
  • Understand what’s working well and what isn’t
  • Identify issues and opportunities
  • Use all the evidence, insights and analysis to make better business decisions
  • Agree your priorities and update your action plan so the business keeps moving towards its goals.
  • “As long as I need a trusted adviser, I won’t be going anywhere else.”
