With Business Owners, Building Lasting Value

Helping 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.

Marjoury Zondo

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

Director and Executive Training

Do you understand your duties as a director, or senior executive?

Does your board and board meetings add significant value to your business?

Understanding the duties of directors and how to create and run an effective board significantly reduces your personal risk & liability, and that of the business, while enhancing the growth and value of your business.

Board Services

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.

If you’d like to find out more about how you can strengthen your board and your business, and /or fill a short-term executive hole:

Mastermind Groups

It’s lonely at the top, so the saying goes – but all CEOs have experienced this. You’re expected to have the answers and lead the way, but sometimes you find yourself at a  crossroad. What do you do?

Mastermind groups are sessions in which senior executives meet (physically and/or virtually) in small non-competing groups to discuss issues in strict confidence within the group, giving them access not only to others who understand the issues but to a collective wisdom that can provide potential solutions.

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. And conditions have changed dramatically, especially in the past year or so, with the ability to operate in the digital field now essential.

Business Fitness means having a dynamic business – one that can adapt quickly to new entrants, technologies and changing market conditions.

If you’re interested in finding out more about how we can work with you on clarifying your business Strategy and Direction through our business coaching, mentoring and consulting services, tailored for you:

“More business is lost every year through neglect than through any other cause.” – Rose Kennedy

How interesting to see a lady who was not seen to be active in business making such a statement. Rose Kennedy was, of course, the mother of JFK, Bobby and Ted Kennedy (among her 9 children), but showed a clear understanding of business when stating that more is lost...

How to Fix the Costly Lack of Technology Understanding in Business

I read an interesting report in ITWeb this week following a survey by Xero, the cloud-based accounting software company for SMEs, of 400 South African small business owners. It shows how a lack of technology understanding and skills is costing these businesses dearly...

“Sell the problem you solve. Not the Product.” – Unknown

We’re often so involved with the products we sell that when talking to prospective customers we don’t address their problems and solve them with the solution we’re selling. We focus on the product itself, and then wonder why the customer is not jumping at the...
