Business consultancy services
My business consultancy services are bespoke to each project. Below are just a few of the areas of support that I can offer you
Monthly reporting packs and dashboards
Being able to see the current cash position of the company, latest tracking against budget and financial projections consolidated in to a digestible monthly pack can be a vital tool in armouring executive management with the key facts about their business.
Cash flow and cash management
It is vital that you have control over this area of your business. I can carry out a range of cost and revenue stream analysis as appropriate - be it high level, in-depth, verification of the current process or set-up from scratch.
I can tailor cash flow budgets and forecasts over a range of time horizons that will suit your ongoing needs.
Budgeting and forecasting
Having adequate budgets and forecasts in place allows you to be realistic and proactive in your business strategy and forward thinking in its outlook. Having this information on your company's future will assist in navigating a range of circumstances and discussions.
In house upskilling of existing staff
Extracting the potential within your existing finance team can be the quickest, simplest and most positive method of getting what you need. I can teach what are often simple techniques and reorganise work flows to enhance and energise the department.
Process review and development
Establishing and maintaining an effective control environment with accountability at the right level is a crucial aspect of any business. Whether it be reviewing your existing processes or starting from scratch, I can help implement an efficient, robust, targeted or complete process for finance.
All companies at some point will need to face a decision related to their financial system(s), sometimes more than once. Perhaps you want to make the switch to a new accounting software or do not feel you you are getting the most out of your existing software.
I have been involved in multiple system transitions and implementations - and it involves much more than just the system itself - training and managing staff and expectations through change are also key to success.
A word from some of my clients
Sian Millar, business owner
I worked with Sam for a number of years when she was FD within my business. She set up systems and processes to support the operational team, as well as produced detailed and useful management information packs on a monthly basis. Sam worked on several projects including acquisitions and part disposals (site sales.) Ultimately she worked through the sale process with me (all due diligence with legal team etc)
