Training Case Study

The company had been established with an inappropriate ownership structure and management differences were seriously affecting operations.

What we did
Mentored and advised the majority shareholder and managing director through the restructuring of the business. This set the foundations for a period of sustained growth in both sales and profitability. We continue to provide regular ongoing advice on issues such as staff management and motivation, pricing and marketing strategy.

The company is now substantially larger and more profitable and now attracting interest from other organisations with a view to acquisition.
