With Business Owners, Building Lasting ValueHelping Business Owners & Entrepreneurs Build a Business They Can Exit Profitably
Is your business worth what it should be?
Or do you believe your hard work is under-valued?
Business owners too often find themselves to be “Employee #1,” spending all their time working IN their business instead of working ON it to build lasting value.
They’re frustrated at not being able to get away from the day-to-day issues and at the slow progress of the growth of their business.
In many cases they feel trapped in their business and unable to exit it, unable even, sometimes, to take a holiday as the business depends on their presence.
If any of this resonates with you, talk with me and let’s see how we can change this.
My Approach To Working With You & Your Business
Having attended the Powerful Company Directorship course by Guy, it is very apparent that all new Directors should take this course. Even if you have been a director for a number of years, you will find valuable insights. Risk, negligence, Shareholder/Director duties and responsibilities, how to set up a board and more.
The course itself was so much more than a purely academic recitation of the Companies Act and other regulatory aspects as relates to Directors most importantly, as well as Share and other Stakeholder parties. It was highly interactive, which made understanding what Guy was explaining that much easier to grasp. And that goes for all who attended, most from quite different business fields. Guy made his subject matter applicable to each and all, and questions were welcome anytime and answers reciprocated

A vibrant board is key to a successful business. It sets the strategy plan and the tone for the business, provides independent oversight and opinion, brings additional experience and skills, reduces business risk and the cost of capital, ensures a professional management culture and positions the company for long-term growth.
Furthermore, all boards should have Independent Non-Executive Directors to add skills, experience and ensure objective input and oversight.

Strategy & Direction
Sometimes, business owners are so involved in the day-to-day activities and challenges of their business that they don’t have the time to look at how the strategies and value proposition they developed in the past need updating as conditions change.

Powerful Company Directorship
Are you clear on the advantages of a proper board and regular board meetings, or are they just a “tick the box” exercise for you?
Are you happy that you understand the duties of directors as legislated, and that you are not open to losing all your hard-won assets?
Do you see your business growing steadily in value, knowing you will be able to profitably exit it when you wish?
If you answered ‘No’ to any of these questions, you should consider attending the Powerful Company Directorship course.
This 4-module interactive video-based course covers all you need to know to set up an effective board and run board meetings that add great value to your business, helping it grow in size and value steadily for years to come. The course also covers the Companies Act as pertains to duties of directors, what you need to do and what you must not do if you are to avoid liabilities – after all, directors and officers of companies can be held personally liable to the full extent of all losses and damages suffered by anyone as a result of neglecting their duties, and could be prevented from ever serving again as a director or officer of a company.
