Audits and Reviews

We take a long hard stare at your organisation. A Paddington Bear Stare. We can take a helicopter view, or drill down into a specific area you have identified. We like to take a broad overview to see the whole picture as well as the micro environment. We can review how the organisation is operating and look at key competitors and market trends. We have a broad senior management background so have experience across the board. This broad approach along with day to day operations gives us an unique insight into people and how they respond to challenges and change. Staff and colleagues need to be supported and kept up to speed with plans or they may become disenfranchised and disillusioned.

Support Services

At times there is a deep valley ahead and we cannot see past the mountain ranges. We have led dynamic businesses operating in competitive markets and been responsible for the day to day operations, multi-site and multi-national. Our experience includes operational management, administration, customer services, marketing, procurement, distribution, health & safety, central human resources, ISO management systems, risk management, compliance, governance, business intelligence and KPIs. We can help strengthen key areas to give you breathing space. We can also help recruit and mentor staff to move you forward.

Business Turnarounds and Exit Strategies

Sometimes you reach the top of the mountain and have nowhere to go. Goals have been achieved. Or a crisis knocks you off course and the organisation sails too close to the rocks or the edge of a cliff. We have lived and survived the full business cycle, the highs and the lows. We can help steady a ship in stormy waters, rescue a critical situation, and help guide a suitable exit if this is what is needed.

“We are passionate about helping you be the success you can be.”

Case Studies

Scientific Equipment Supplier

A well established science equipment supplier contacted us asking to review their operation and business plan. Life was becoming more difficult particularly with a specific competitor who had deeper pockets. We reviewed their entire operation, sales and management team. Working with the management team we identified a number of issues and helped put in place plans and mentoring to address the issues. Twelve months on they are happily going from strength to strength.

Local Charity

A charity asked for help to review their ISO, H&S and HR policies in preparation for submitting tenders for extra work. We carried out a desk review as well as visited their sites to walk them through some ideas. We updated the policies and helped put in place a review process so they can stay compliant and benefit from more relevant and helpful policies. This turned into a regular review of other policies to help them out in an area they are not specialised in.

Health Services

A new innovative start-up national health organisation needed project management skills and coordinate their various mushrooming IT projects at breakneck speed. Their demand was soaring and we were able to put hands on deck to strengthen their management team in critical areas. A real roller coaster ride, and freeing up the original team to concentrate on supporting clients and patients and improving lives.
