CREDIT CRUNCH HELP
Examples of help we can give:
Family Business Succession
A well established family business had gone through a succession change and suffered the resultant challenges. The Managing Director needed an independent source of advice and guidance to enable the company to avoid decisions being influenced by family or emotive issues.
We mentored them through this transition. We provided pragmatic advice and solutions, such as a pricing model, which enables the directors to sustain and improve the business.
The results are encouraging. New investment has also contributed to the confidence in the future. The business has strategies in place for successful development and suitable performance management tools to maximise profitability. Sales and bottom line improvements have provided a solid foundation to plan with confidence for future generations.
Marketing for attraction
A significant landmark has unique characteristics as a conference and food facility, in central Norwich. The potential for business is extensive and the business, which is a charitable trust, wished to have assistance mentoring the Marketing Manager to define potential, establish scope, prioritise and implement new marketing initiatives.
We focused on mentoring the Marketing Manager. A marketing plan was produced and launched to the departmental heads, who then made a significant input to the plan.
This helped to obtain buy-in from key sections of the business for the plan. We improved their leadership and communication skills, and enabled them to take the plan forward as an initiative “owned” by all managers and departments.
