Services & Approach

Co-Pilot® is here to help you make Progress.

Having been involved at the coalface across my own businesses, as well as family businesses, I have had to make them work. I seek to use that experience and learned resilience to help others formulate a plan and make the necessary changes to remove the barriers which allow them to move closer to their goal.

Working alongside business owners & managers to guide towards greater clarity, confidence, productivity, progress, outcomes, accountability & business value – as and when required – by asking the timely questions to help uncover, consider, plan, architect, create plus project manage implementation if required, with credible partners.

The outcomes help position a business for the next phase, whether that’s growth, contingency, scale, change, capital requirements, formation of partnerships, as well as positioning for succession or exit.

No matter what your initial intention for seeking guidance, your business should be saleable at any time, which means you have options at any time – that’s the goal.

The fact is – if you own a business, you will Exit sometime. Be Business & Post-Business Ready by taking a broader view of the business today, so that we are able to prepare you for exit, even if that’s not on your current horizon.
