- Fighting for Survival
- Cannot Scale the Business
- Making Poor Decisions
- Unclear Vision & Strategy
- No Viable Exit Plan
Increasingly, I am also being engaged to help grow then sell private businesses.
For instance, I coached the CEO and his leadership team to turnaround a financially-distressed scientific services company (liquidation value at the time of my engagement, circa $2m) and in just over 2 years, personally negotiated the sale of the entire business for $11.5m to a listed European group.
My Cardinal Rule:
I only undertake an engagement where the value I create is 3 times to 10 times the price I charge.
My success rate in getting a Company “unstuck” is down to one simple rule – Fixing the things that most need fixing now.
