Invariably, five key areas of the business will need to be fixed

The Assessment is likely to identify at least five areas of the business that need to be fixed. Most commonly, these relate to money or people. You may choose to accept my Assessment and manage the change process yourself. You will have all the information you need. However, if the challenges are complex or if re-financing is involved, you can ask me to take the project to the next stage; the development of a detailed Business Plan.

The Ride the Storm Business Plan is not the tick-box affair you show your bank manager. It’s a plan to put you back into profitability and will appeal to potential shareholders. It covers every aspect of your business including location, premises, manufacturing, staff, distribution, marketing and sales. My Business Plan has been refined over many years and has been instrumental in restoring many businesses to profitability.
