If you’re not quite sure what a business consultant like me does, on a normal day, I will go into your business and:
• Meet people, do a tour of the business to learn about your business
• Identify focus areas
• Work with the business owners and the staff to make some decisions.
• Create strategic and operational plans, targets, timelines and help you take action
For Company’s Solutions for companies vary. It gets complicated very quickly but I can help you understand what the technical names mean. Which option you take will depend on your specific situation. Call me or send me a question I will explain the specific options in more details and what is likely to apply to your situation.
Recovery & Change
Workouts occur where business owners recognise issues with its business and take early action to prevent the situation from getting worse. The key is to get in early, engage with key stakeholders and come to an agreement on how to manage the business. An independent perspective is critical in this circumstance. Recovery needs time, the earlier the better.
We understand the important role a trusted adviser plays in the client/adviser relationship. Don’t underestimate the value an independent set of eyes and different perspective on your affairs can provide. Like most of us you get so involved and immersed in your affairs on a day to day basis that it is too hard to step back.
Finance & Administration
Here are the top four reasons business owners say they failed at their business: Poor strategic management of the business, Inadequate cash flow or high cash use, Trading losses, Poor financial control, including lack of financial and other records. If we step back in time, let’s say 3 decades, these are the reasons cited by business owners.
Entrenched positions can be devastating to all those concerned. Conflicts create uncertainty, instability and are costly. No winners. Mediation is a process managed by an unbiased and independent voice in a confidential setting. I have years of experience dealing with people in difficult situations looking for solutions. Some solutions are better than others, but in a mediated outcome, the solutions are what you agree to, not what someone dictates. Let me help you achieve your solution.
Working towards a common goal or outcome my facilitation services will help you focus on what’s important. Facilitation will help you identify the issues, educate, get a agreement and suggest courses of action.
Used to avoid conflict and create collaboration around commons goals. This form of facilitation can be used as a preventative conflict tool. This is a process. A process where I oversee the progress of meetings to alleviate tensions, differentiate between personal and organisational goals or objectives.
Facilitation – Buy and Sell
Buying and selling a business is a stressful time. Appointing a facilitator to assist with a bipartisan approach to the buy/sale process will help reduce stress and tension, mitigating the risk associated with the asymmetry of information.
Liability and Risk
Whether you run a cafe, IT, manufacturing, retailing or an eCommerce business, all businesses need to minimise liability and risk. I can assess your the structure of your operation and with my connected network tailor the right risk, and more, so you can worry less about liabilities and concentrate on growing your business.
Being in business is tough. There are good strategies and bad ones. More often than not business strategic plans are bad. Really bad. I have simplified the strategic business planning process. It’s not hard. A focused facilitated business planning session helps you focus on the key elements of your business.
