Business strategy

Many businesses exist day-to-day, always hoping to do better, often just fighting to survive. It’s a daily struggle that can deny you the focus, the time and the opportunity to develop a robust plan to execute with any conviction.

Even businesses which are doing OK often know deep down that they could either be doing better or that market conditions could well reverse their fortunes. I can help identify new opportunities, research and investigate them and I’ll even get my feet wet and get out and start to open some doors for you if that’s what’s needed.

If you recognise these circumstances then it’s time to create a plan to build a stronger, sustainable and more profitable business.

MAKING IT HAPPEN

Some businesses have a plan in place, but often fail to put it into action.
Your plan shouldn’t live in the bottom drawer or gather dust on the shelf. Using a 3 x 3 x 3 model it can be a document to manage your progress and manage your team, making sure everyone stays on track.

A CLEAR VISION

Often the business vision exists in the head of the business owner but other colleagues aren’t engaged or seem to care in the same way.

This is a relatively straight-forward communication issue to solve, with the result that everyone in your business understands their role and responsibility and is driving your business forward.

PLANNING AND STRATEGY DELIVERED IN YOUR BUSINESS

My financial, business and management experience has helped me to develop a roadmap for planning growth and business success.

Utilising the experience from my time in corporate finance with Barclays, NWS and the Bank of New York, my analytical skills allow me to quickly identify the financial dynamics at work within your business. I’m also able to budget and model scenarios and opportunities.

With almost 20 years spent running businesses and departments, working with clients to improve efficiency and a lifelong study of management and performance I will bring a refreshing and exciting perspective to our business discussions.

None of this is about telling you how to manage your business; it’s about being available to bring an external perspective, be a resource to grow your business or even just a sounding board with whom to discuss strategic issues.

If you feel there are opportunities for your business to grow and to become stronger why not call me on 01757 249442 or email me at hello@askmjs.co.uk and we can discuss sitting down for an initial meeting.
