Poor strategic strategies rarely drive profitable results, in fact they can cause confusion and losses.
When a business tries to be a jack of all trades they do not succeed. A strategic plan provides clarity and direction for your business.
During a strategic planning workshop we involve employees to capture innovation and create a sense of enthusiasm and accountability.
We create (or recreate) the Vision, Mission and Values to drive purpose.
We challenge every aspect of your business strategy and identify new markets, customer targets, products / services and identify opportunities for growth.
We help align employees with the newly created strategy to ultimately drive profits through purpose.
We help you execute and achieve your vision.
A business restructure is usually performed on under-performing businesses.
However, restructures can also be performed on businesses that require revamping and change.
A restructure can protect the current business and can provide a platform on which to rebuild - bigger and better with stronger foundations.
Restructuring involves working in all areas of the business. Reviewing current systems and processes, identifying pain points and working towards a smoother running business.
We evaluate, rationalise, reconstruct and profitably grow your business.
Operational changes and performance improvement underpins a successful restructuring strategy.
From our experience, SME business owners sadly invest less on themselves than anyone else in their business.
Businesses usually outgrow the employees, especially if they are not upgrading their skills and knowledge.
As a business grows it needs new skills to handle larger challenges.
We help develop employee skills and knowledge base.
We train on process efficiencies, internal controls, technical, leadership, and change management - to name a few.
We help employees perform outside their comfort zones while building capability within.
Without timely reporting, you are essentially leading blind.
From our experience, SMEs usually do not have sophisticated reporting and rely on basic reports from their systems to make decisions.
Basic reports do not provide enough information to make solid sound decisions.
We provide a framework for reporting that simplifies the analysis of data.
We dig deeper into the numbers and investigate the causes of certain results and flag potential issues.
We provide recommendations to improve results and monitor them accordingly.
We create KPIs that drive employees towards goals.
Our aim is to create a culture of monitoring, reviewing and reporting – with – Action!
Sales & Marketing plans focus on key target markets, customers and industries.
It explores where you can strengthen relationships – new and existing.
It will guide where the Sales team should be focusing and what to sell.
By having greater control over the Sales cycle through systems and processes, the higher the chances of customer conversion.
Progress and execution (or lack there of) is proactively monitored through reporting.
We transform the Sales cycle through:
- Analysis of sales data to investigate eroding Gross Profit margins.
- Strategies to increase Gross Profits and Net Profits.

When faced with financial difficulty owners can feel overwhelmed and unsure on how to manage their cash flow issues.
We reduce the personal and financial pressure by implementing and executing an effective plan.
We review all areas of the business to identify the causes of an under performing business and provide solutions to the root causes.
By identifying the underlying causes we give the business the best chance of survival.
Businesses dealing with a distressed balance sheet and performance challenges do not have time to waste. They need fast action to stabilise and rectify the situation.
We drive the change needed to save your business.
We negotiate with key stakeholders including suppliers, customers, banks, unions and landlords to have them on board with the restructure process.
Our aim is to stabilise and rescue your business.
Culture enables strong growth for employee engagement.
We inspire, empower and motivate employees to ultimately become more.
With our deep understanding of the relationship between culture and its outcomes we work together to generate a positive collaborative culture.

Keeping it simple and practical are at the forefront of all our recommendations.
All roads lead back to Finance, so to control your financial position, you should control the operations of your business.
By reviewing what you do, how you do it and why - we can provide clarity on where the business is burning cash.
By simplifying systems and processes with what needs to be done, rather than what is actually being done, we eliminate inefficiencies, improve profits and cash flow.
We assess the risks exposed in your business and establish internal controls to mitigate risks.
Each Division is reviewed with solutions on streamlining and improving Operational efficiencies and profitability.
Pain points are identified and solutions to fix them at their core - not the surface, where they will resurface later.
A smoother running business is created without the daily roadblocks.
The aim is for the business owner to gain control of their business and the way it operates.
Cash flow is a critical part of any business. If not properly monitored and controlled it can be the end of your business.
Understanding cash flow drivers and establishing internal controls will assist in long term stability.
We can establish internal controls to improve cash flow by reviewing:
- Sales and Cash Collections,
- Purchasing and Payments,
- Inventory control and Management,
- Operational Processes, and
- Financial Commitments.
Cash flow is not an area that can wait to be fixed.
We help SMEs restore from survival to stability and then growth.
There is no point in building a business on weak foundations.
We understand that cash is not usually the primary issue. It is everything around it that is creating losses and instability.
Don’t wait until it is too late to fix your cash flow situation.
Act now and gain control.
