Investors – PE, VC

My role is to safeguard your investment in companies – whether they are start-up or high growth.

It is clear that you want your investment to grow, you have researched a prospect, done your due diligence and believe it will be a great success.

My role is to:
Safeguard your investment
Provide business skills
Mentor the team

However the people you are investing in may not have all the business knowledge or skills for you to feel your investment is secure. You may not yet be ready to give them complete freedom with your money. You may feel they would benefit from guidance, business support, and systems to build the company.

This is where I make the difference.

My clients value my knowledge and experience in supporting a management team. By working with them as a Board they will develop systems, controls and acquire the knowledge needed to run the company as well as the business.

You will know there are in a safe pair of hands to support your investment on its journey.

You will also know that when you come to sell your stake and the buyer conducts due diligence, you will achieve the maximum value.

Business Owners

You are building your business and have many ideas of how to make it a success.

You have too much to do and too little time in which to do it.

You may have a vision for a product, a system, or a new solution to a market problem. And often you will be part of a team with one being the ‘customer facing’ specialist and others being the ‘product’ or ‘technical’ specialists.

What will often be missing from the equation is a ‘business’ specialist.

How to avoid the snakes
Where to find the ladders

It is often assumed is that if the ‘product’ is good and the sales/marketing is good then the profit will flow.

While that may be true for a while there are many traps for the unwary and uninitiated.

Only after a problem emerges and threatens the entire business does it become obvious. I have witnessed so many businesses being destroyed by what was apparently ‘unexpected’.

My role is to support you in growing your company while you grow the business. It will help you achieve your goals more quickly and with fewer problems.

The value is my experience and knowledge helps to support you in creating the success that you know is possible.

Vital Areas for Growth Companies

Worthwhile Board Meetings

Most Board Meetings are wasted opportunities to make a difference.
There are 3 critical areas where all owners MUST AGREE.

If they don’t agree there is a high risk that they will discover too late that they are unable to work with each other leading to the disintegration of the business.

I’ve seen that too often!

With guidance, Board Meetings become a valuable asset to help you to run your business and will ensure that, by the end of your journey, all your hard work has paid off.

Strategies that Work

There are 7 key areas of strategic importance to managing the profit in every organisation.

These include areas such as whether the organisation is efficiently structured; what products or services are being offered now and are under development for the future; how your market perceives you; what are you doing to ensure loyalty from your customers.

There are other areas relating to the equity value of your organisation. These are vital for your future. Yet many Board meetings miss these key areas completely.

What you don't know!

Most business people are passionate about their organisation. And they often believe they have enough of the answers to ‘get by’…until something goes wrong.

Many of my roles have been to rescue organisations who realised too late that there was a problem.

You have no idea
what it is you don’t know!

No one expects the unexpected!

That’s why having someone who’s well trained and been ‘around the block’ can be a tremendous asset to you in ways you may not realise until it’s too late.
