There are 5.7 million SME’s in the UK, employing 16.3 million people – Depending on which report you read* up to three quarters of these ultimately fail within 3 to 5 years, with the most common reasons being a lack of a coherent strategy, clear value proposition and brand marketing.
Having a winning business strategy shouldn‘t just be reserved for FTSE 100 companies and too often small businesses can confuse business goals and objectives with genuine strategy.
Do you feel like you’ve lost your way a little and have forgotten what your business is at its core? Are you struggling to keep up with the competition or perhaps can’t quite put your finger on why you are not doing better? Maybe you’ve got a brilliant product or service and a receptive market but are lacking something to take you to the next level – the second phase is always the hardest.

We have devised a consulting programme called “50 questions to set your strategy”. These fully interactive workshops are designed to diagnose, analyse and ultimately provide you with clear goals, strategic objectives and tactics that will set you on the right path for future success.GET IN TOUCH
Nobody knows your business better than you. We don’t come and tell you what you should be doing – we provide the framework and some beautiful questions for you to answer & devise what is right for you. You are brilliant – you just need to make sure everyone internally and externally knows why.
Our strategy sessions can be run over one, two or three days and end with immediate deliverables – a coherent plan that can be fed down throughout the organisation for inclusivity. We will help you dive into what you do and analyse who you are, teasing out your options, opportunities and decisions on your future.
