Strategy and business development
Every strategy session is different with each client having a unique set of needs and circumstances that must be considered. Therefore, it is not possible to have a blueprint for the strategy process that will work for all situations. It is a creative, collaborative process and it is always tailor-made to the needs of our clients.
We have had the privilege to engage in strategic planning initiatives in the private and public sectors and are looking forward to assisting you with yours.
We are experienced in facilitating both physical and virtual strategy sessions and are comfortable in English or Afrikaans.

Traditional family-controlled or -owned businesses often experience frustration due to the lack of succession planning, insufficient strategies to identify new leadership and poor communication to the next generation. In many instances, current shareholders acknowledge the need for a packaged solution that caters for the unique circumstances of the business and that will effectively address the requirements set out by the business owners.
