Why our approach to business consultancy?
At Beacon Business Consultants our approach to business consultancy is the broad concept method. We will organise to meet at your premises (where possible), where our consultant can meet with you in person. You can then take them on a walkthrough of your business. If distance or other reasons don’t allow, we can do this step remotely. It is still highly effective.
Following this, we will have a more in-depth discussion to establish why you are looking for a consultant. Also to discuss what it is you’re hoping to achieve. We discuss any issues your business is facing and verify that we are best placed to help you.
Once we have outlined this, we will work together to establish a realistic timescale for the change.
Our consultant will conduct a quick fact find exercise to gather further information about your business. Lastly, we will schedule subsequent meetings to ensure our momentum continues.
Our clients have found it to be beneficial to have a feeling of having someone to answer to. This is because within many small businesses there are sole directors. This leads to prioritising the day to day running of the business and not making time to focus on these other factors. By investing in a consultant you are forcing yourself to face the issues and act on them. This in the long run gives you more time to do what you want to do because you have a sharper functioning business.
