Business planning can begin immediately.

The type of business and complexity is not a barrier as Glenn is able to adapt services to suit any business and your budget. This includes custom services that may start with a Q&A service for a negotiated price. Start with an e-mail detailing your needs and we take it from there.

Q?

Why do you offer subscription services and can I just get a Business Plan prepared?

A.

All our services are provided with the understanding that for a truly customised service, your business will need to provide the key creative element and we will provide the structure, process and work towards a complete outcome and this may take time. Initially, you could have a quick return on your request within a week or two and be able to implement strategies and action immediately. In this case a one-off payment for a set service can be arranged.

Generally, a better outcome is achieved when we can work with you in partnership and customise the service over time. You may have many questions and issues that rely on the particular service and we are able to offer this unique way of working with you too ensure it is the right fit and outcome to best suit your business. A business Plan for example is both a documented plan for the future but it also will need adjustment of its actions over the period of the year that it is set for and we are able to guide you through this full year and offer an evaluation or review process that is vital to achieving success.
