Who we work with
Our client profile
Typically we work with founder led private businesses that have already achieved some success but are looking to take the business to that next level of robust, sustainable growth within a more mature business footprint.
Barriers that may be holding them back often include:
a lack of clarity or conviction over the strategic direction of the business
an over-reliance on the owner or key individuals affecting focus and execution time
inexperience in developing and empowering a professional management team
a lack of expertise in critical strategic, technical or industry areas
an absence of wise counsel to act as a business confidant or sounding board
Additionally we work with start up founders who value the support and business discipline that an experienced advisor can provide from the start in evaluating opportunities and putting in place the capability to identify and support rapid growth.
From time to time we also work with Not for Profit boards who require expert assistance to shift from an out dated committee structure into a modern, professional board providing a clear strategic mandate to their organisation.
"The value of having feedback from such an experienced and dedicated advisor who can see your business from the outside-in is enlightening. Never, have I been so clear about the strategic direction of my business and more confident about the decisions that have to be made. When you’re leading an organisation, Lindsay has your back, and his mandate is to drive your achievements and successes. I recommend you talk to him today."
