Every start-up has a specific focus and needs to be approached from a different perspective. 

Strategic Growth?

Is your business active and stable, but stagnant? Are you struggling to reach customers, find new markets, develop innovative products, or create opportunities to drive growth?

Kevin can assist in the planning and implementing of specific growth strategies that cater to your unique company vision and objectives. This process differs by business, but always starts with strategic planning and goal clarification.

These planning initiatives will then guide the implementation process that may include some or all of the following:

Business Survival?

Turning a business around that is not making money is a very challenging and arduous process.

Almost all small businesses find themselves in this position at some point during their lifespan; with the majority having to close their doors within 10 years.

Kevin can assist you with the planning and implementation of a turn-around strategy to get your business back on track.

Your recovery strategy will be unique, but may include any number of the following:

  • Environmental scanning to obviate and act on opportunities and threats.
  • Exiting or Entering different markets & segments.
  • Optimising business structures and redesigning jobs.
  • Terminating unprofitable products or services.
  • Disposing of assets to enhance and stabilise case flow.
  • Disposing of part of the business to suit the mission.

The potential topics that can be dealt with under this banner are too numerous to list, but you can summarise the service as follows:

These are focused one-on-one consulting sessions to assist entrepreneurs in any areas of their business or personal lives that require professional guidance or support.
