Our Team
Our biggest strength is our people. Our business plan consultants deliver much more than a simple business plan writing service. They bring a depth of commercial experience, expertise and insight that gives you a real advantage when developing your business plan. To some clients they become more of a mentor or business plan advisor where their experience can help guide entrepreneurs in the early stages; for other more established organisations formal business plan consultancy is more appropriate and our consultants are experienced in delivering board level strategic business plan consultancy. We are flexible to your needs.

Our Experience
Our business plan consultants have first-hand experience in the UK and Internationally of working with business start-ups, helping SMEs grow, developing corporate strategic plans, and raising bank and equity funding. They provided business plan consultancy to help entrepreneurs convert their ideas into commercial reality, and helped some of the largest international companies develop strategic plans for growth. So, your dedicated business plan consultant is in a great position to ask all the tough commercial questions before you get to pitch your business start-up idea or implement your business management plan. That way, we aim to give your business plan the best chance of success.

Our Expertise
In addition to the core skills of financial forecasting and business plan writing, our business plan consultants have a broad range of additional expertise. It includes research and analysis, financial modelling, feasibility studies, strategy development, product and service value proposition development, commercial strategy development, project management, accounting, and fund-raising for start-ups through to large global corporations and not-for-profit organisations. If one of our core Business Plan Services doesn’t quite meet your needs, we can tailor a range of services for you.
