You want to optimise your business. Cash flow and/or profitability, for example, is under pressure.meer over priority 1
Have you achieved the goals you set out when you started your business?
DISCOVERY & ORIENTATION
Did you start with the belief that you could do things better than others? More personal freedom, higher earnings or a better product or service in the market. How do you think about this today? Can it improve or have you already achieved all the goals you set out at the start?
These questions are central in our Discovery meeting. As you will be talking to experienced consultants, you will quickly get an insight as to what is in the way of achieving your personal and business goals. It is an informal meeting – all we ask of you is your attention and an open mind.
During the Discovery meeting we will explore if there’s trust and a click between us. We will discover which opportunities there are and whether or not there is profit leaking from your business. We can immediately apply these insights in the next more in-depth phase: a complimentary analysis of your business in the form of our profit-leakage session.
PROFIT LEAKAGE SESSION
Where does profit leak from your business unnoticed?
Our ongoing research shows profits leak unnoticed in nine out of ten small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This can be up to 8% of revenue. By utilising our profit leakage tool, exclusively developed by us, we will quickly discover together whether this is also the case for your organisation.
Cause and effect
The profit-leakage session provides insight into ’cause and effect’: what’s happening (or not) that is causing money to leak from your business. But you will also be able to understand why your personal motives started to conflict with business objectives. By using our benchmark model, we’ll show you profit-leakage strategies that have worked successfully in similar situations.
We believe in investing in each other, so this session is completely free of charge. Free of charge is certainly not the same as worthless. That’s why we don’t offer this to just any business owner. In our Discovery meeting, we have already been able to determine whether it make sense to offer you this session. Are you curious whether cash is leaking out of your business unnoticed? The answer will only take you two hours of your time.
EVALUATION & PROPOSAL
Sleeves rolled up: let’s get started!
We only continue once we have a clear understanding of your situation and mutual trust is established. You will receive a straightforward proposal from us, in which we have shaped our partnership.
If cash-flow and profit improvement are your top priorities, we will start our Business Improvement Plan at the same time as introducing profit leakage strategies. That way, you will experience a return on our partnership straight from the start resulting in improved cash flow.
In our Business Improvement Plan, we address your priorities step by step. We focus on transferring our knowledge and experience, so that you and your team will be able to continue to implement improvements more independently.
The foundation of your company is well established, but you have a desire for an advisor to talk to. Someone who helps you lead your team.meer over priority 2
Be honest, what would you do differently if you could?
DISCOVERY & ORIENTATION
As a business owner, you have already developed a clear vision of where you want to be in three years’ time and have developed a plan to get there. You have already taken a number of important steps, but the need for an experienced sparring partner remains. Our Advisory Board set up meets this need, so that we can anchor improvements and guarantee the realisation of the plan.
Independent sparring partner
Why a business consultant can help your organisation
As a business owner, it gets lonely. An independent sparring partner can often give you just the push you need. They can be the mirror that gives back the insights that you subconsciously already have.
If you already work with a Thexton Armstrong® business consultant, we will have completed the Business Improvement Plan together. You and your team are now working independently on continuous improvements. However, you want to anchor improvements and secure our partnership but at a deeper intensity level; Thexton Armstrong’s Advisory Board is the logical next step.
OVERVIEW OF OUR ADVISORY BOARD OFFERING
In this session we will show you how our Advisory Board works and how it fits within your organisation. We have several options.
We only continue once we have a clear understanding of your situation and mutual trust is established. You will receive a straightforward proposal from us, in which we have shaped our partnership. You determine the intensity and frequency of our sessions and the degree of involvement of the Advisory Board.
Succession & Exit plan
You're thinking of selling or handing over your business to the next generation of perhaps your management team, but you're wondering if you and your company are ready for that.meer over priority 3
One thing we know for sure – at some point in time, you will pass on the baton to a successor.
DISCOVERY & ORIENTATION
One thing we know for sure – at some point in time, you will pass on the baton to a successor. By working with an experienced consultant, with no vested interest to hastily sell your business, you will get a realistic and objective insight into your business. This way you can be sure that this is the right step for you.
OVERVIEW OF OUR PLAN
Do you have a good understanding of how to handover or sell your business?
Selling or handing over your business is one of the most important events in your life as a business owner. But before you do this, it is important to ask yourself why, how quickly, to whom and for what price you want to sell your company.
In this session we will show you how we structure the process to prepare you to sell or hand over your business. Your priorities are paramount. If you don’t have a lot of time, we can quickly adapt to your needs.
We only continue once we have a clear understanding of your situation and mutual trust is established. You will receive a straightforward proposal from us, in which we have shaped our partnership. We have split our programme into two separate phases, giving you a clearer picture what needs to be done by when.
In phase 1 we determine your starting position and understand your motivation and priorities. At the end of phase 1 there will be a go or no-go decision moment. At that time, you will receive a separate proposal from us as to how we can proceed to phase 2. In this follow-up phase, we will work to increase the value of your company and substantially improve the chances of successfully selling your business.
