If you’re a business owner who’s serious about taking your business to the next level, then I’m thinking your strategic plan is in place and you have the best support team to realise your goals?
Plus you would have all the financial data, trading and cash flow projections and thoroughly reviewed your operations to identify the areas of concern that are hindering your performance improvement and operational efficiencies?
If you don’t have the answers to the above questions, then you’re probably in need for some professional help.
Forbes ran an article in March 2014 entitled “Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction”, which highlighted the role leaders must play to achieve strategic growth and operational success. Factors include the ability to think outside the box, keeping in touch with customer demands and modifying the organisational culture to facilitate the changes needed for growth.
With my roots as a Chartered Accountant in Price Waterhouse, I’ve successfully mastered the financial disciplines and business management practices to help SME’s identify, implement and achieve business success. As a CFO and Commercial Director in multinational corporations (Unilever, Westinghouse, Sheridan and P&O), I am experienced in the many challenges faced by all levels in a business, and have developed a holistic approach and bring cohesive change to all parts of businesses.
Today’s business leaders are time-poor and must overcome a mountain of responsibilities such as personal/staff motivation, goal setting, succession planning and/or exit strategy along with financial and operational affairs. All these can leave you with little time to truly focus on how to make a positive impact on your business bottom line and business value.
