CAPABILITIES

Your business is unique so we don’t provide sanitised or generalised management or consulting packages but instead work closely with you to assess your business’ needs in the short and long term and work side by side with you to implement processes to achieve your goals.

By working with you to clearly define the strategic direction of your company or firm and the processes for implementing these strategies this generally frees up the time of the CEO, CFO or Practice Professional to manage the business free of this administrative burden of managing these processes.


Part of great leadership is recognising the limitation of your own expertise and skills and the need to surround yourself with people with specific expertise that can complement your strengths and provide a sounding board for your ideas and their execution.

  • Key Person Insurance - a key person is someone who provides ideas, drive, initiative and skills that generate the profits needed for the survival and growth of the business. The sudden loss of such a person has inevitable costs, not all of them obvious. We will work with you to ensure that a solution is in place that covers the financial consequences caused if a key person dies, suffers a traumatic illness or is totally and permanently incapacitated.
  • Shareholders agreements - deal with the exit of a business owner on a voluntary or involuntary basis. The purpose of these agreements is to ensure continuation of the business with minimum disruption in the event of one or more business owners needing to exit the business.
  • Business Wills - every business owner who has one or more partners should have a Business Will to establish how the business would survive after the death or severe illness of one of its principals. A Business Will within a Succession Plan provides for business continuation with minimum disruption in the event of a principal needing to exit on short notice. The agreement also eliminates concerns by creating ready buyers and sellers at a fair, pre-determined price.
