• Business Planning - Every Business needs a Business Plan but how many start ups fail due to the lack of a comprehensive Business Plan. It is commonly recognized that 4 out of 5 new start ups fail in the first 12 months and a key reason for this is a lack of a proper Business Plan. Your Business Plan is not just used to gain financial support (although this is obviously a key reason) but to act as a "roadmap" for the Business by which progress can be measured and tracked.

- communication and how it is handled is critical to the success of your business. If you are having problems getting your management message across we can help you by reviewing your communications strategy and methodology. We will make key recommendations which will revolutionize your business communications and get your message across.
Effective communication is central to a shared vision of organizational objectives. Why is it that communication always seem to flow more smoothly in some organizations than others ? One reason is that the prevailing communication climate directly influences the extent to which communication is a positive or negative force in the organization. An open or supportive communication climate promotes co-operative working relationships, and is therefore conducive to effective information gathering and transfer. A closed or defensive communication climate has the opposite effect.
