WHY CONSULTING?

The major difference between coaching and consulting is who is doing the work. In coaching, the client is supported in achieving their own specific goals and outcomes.  In consulting, the consultant is primarily responsible for projects or results.  Your benefits:

  • Concentrate on other aspects of your business during the consulting time;

        as your consultant will focus on the tasks you need completed.

  • Gain an experts insight and perspective you may not notice.

  • Discover new skills and opportunities.

  • Save money, time and reduce your stress.

  • Take advantage of resources and guidance.

  • Problem solve without judgement.

  • A Consultant can initiate change.

CAN INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND PROFITS.”

Birds of a feather...

Consultants can bring you the best resources; watching over you while you focus on your business.

Clients range from small business owners to serial entrepreneurs to those ready for exit strategies!  

Consulting clients work in the business.  Support is needed to do the work on the business.     My specialty is systems, processes and policies.   Many of my clients have reported "not knowing what they don't know".   I bring templates and resources to Operations - Market - Finance areas of business.

Clients experience increased productivity, higher quality in the workplace, organizational stength, customer service and relations, less customer complaints, retaining staff, cost reduction  and increased profitability.  

The investment in a consultant can result in fresh eyes supporting the busienss.  Clients are often surprised by the changes!
