Do any of the following ring true for you?  If they do, we can help.

  • You’re an entrepreneur who wants to grow fast but does not want to have to wear all of the hats.
  • You run a small business and would love to have some help to get effective processes and systems in place and create a solid base for growth – without having to hire all of the different skills and people.
  •  You’re facing changes, looking to grow or maybe exit your business and want some help and advice, maybe to produce a business plan, decide on the next phase or help with recruitment.
  • You know that you should make better use of Social Media, but never get around to doing anything about it due to other pressures.
  • Your Website needs updating, refreshing or replacing or is not delivering what you thought it would.
  • Your team needs training but there’s never the time to get them together in one place. Or maybe your customers would appreciate training on your products or services to reduce support calls. On-line training could be a solution, but where to start?

Our services

Someone to take an objective view of your business. Someone who understands your objectives and can act as a sounding board for your ideas, and offer advice if needed. It could be strategy, sales,  marketing or longer term planning advice, preparing a business plan for internal or external use to gain investment. Most importantly, we actually follow through to help you to implement what you need.

Social Media Management

Making effective use of social media requires a consistent approach, regular posts and fresh material. Most businesses have great intentions but struggle to keep up a consistent flow of quality posts. That’s where we can help.  You can chose to use us as a one off to get things in place and train your team, or outsource the updates and content to us.  We’ll also advise and help you to decide on the most appropriate channels for your business.

Website design

Your website is your face to the  world, so it’s important that it looks good and is up to date. If you want to maintain high rankings in search engines, then it needs to a have a regular supply of fresh content. We offer a full design and support service along with SEO optimisation and regular update and maintenance options to help keep it performing for you.  From simple brochure sites to  shops or booking systems (events, accommodation etc) our team can help.  For more information, click here.

CRM

Knowing what’s happening with your customers is critical and can make the difference when it comes to keeping those hard won clients. Not just how much and what they buy but who the key players are, when was the most recent interaction, with whom and what about?  We can help to get your CRM system in place, or help you migrate to a CRM system, and train your team to use it and keep it updated.

Our credentials

We’ve been in business, working for large and small companies in the public and private sectors for more than 30 years. We have vast corporate experience from business operations to team and business management.

We’ve been through the process of starting and growing a successful business and understand the challenges faced by entrepreneurs and small businesses.

One of the most, if not the most important skill we possess is the ability to listen.  Any interaction with our clients starts with listening. As a result, once we have established where the problems lie, we work collaboratively to provide effective solutions, and provide business consultancy with practical support.

Habits and rituals
