Every business no matter how large or small needs "expert help" every now and again.
Small to medium sized businesses are usually started by and entrepreneur who has a great idea. The challenges then become:
Turning that idea into a marketable product or service
How to ‘sell’ the product or service
Finding great admin support as the business grows
Understanding the financial aspects of a business and the danger phases
Knowing when and how to grow internationally
Knowing when and how to introduce your NEXT product or service
How to build a great website with e.commerce capabilities
How to reach a global market with social media
Even large businesses are not immune to the constant changes that beset ALL businesses. Sometimes an external coach or mentor can help CEO’s and senior managers view their role differently so they can add value to that business. Sometimes bringing in a ‘project manager’ to oversee some aspect of a business idea or problem can free up time for managers so they can keep an eye on the day to day of the business.
We pride ourselves on having an international pool of expertise. Whether you are looking for a project manager in the UK or a business mentor in Malaysia, we can help you.
ALL our contributors are ‘experts’ in their area of professional services. ALL have many years of experience in their chosen topic.
