Business Advice - The Business Strategist

Call or virtual meeting

Business Owners book a call to discuss your current situation and your objectives for the future. Whatever you do will have a substantial impact on your financial well being and sustainability, I am here to ensure you have considered your options and help you with the best way forward.

Any Day

I have set aside time to assist business owners to develop their strategies or to talk through issues they may be having in their business but don’t know who to ask or how to solve a business related problem.

Any business related questions

Ask me how to develop a growth, diversification, acquisition or exit strategy and if what you are considering will work for you without wasting valuable time and money by getting an experienced independent view.

Get an unbiased view

You will already have people who advise you on financial matters, however I am offering you a second opinion before you commit yourself for the long term.  I will offer you an unbiased view to enable you to make an informed decision about the future of your business.

You will never receive any communication from me after the meeting unless you ask me to.  All advice given is without obligation and completely confidential.

Non Executive Director

We work with business owners who genuinely want to grow their business for value creation. We help you to identify key drivers that will enable the business to scale up. As the Company develops through its lifecycle you will need help in structuring to enable growth by planning through diversification, restructuring or aligning the business with a range of strategies for future growth.

We will hold the executive team to account; guide; challenge and support them by
ensuring there is a diverse group of people on the board (as needed) with different
backgrounds and experience. This will allow us to formulate growth Strategies and drive performance through financial and activity based KPIs to accelerate performance and value.

Business owners need help in being able to work on their business rather than working in their business; to enable real growth and value. A Non Executive Director can help them to put measures in place to drive performance, accelerate profitability and sustainable growth.
