With over 25 years of SME and PLC experience, we specialise in providing tailored solutions and business help for a wide range of businesses.
Do you feel that to have Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) to provide business help is an expensive option and as a result, do without?
Do you need to work incredibly hard just to keep your businesses operating on a day-to-day basis?
Frequently we hear that business owners neither the time nor resources to plan or to think strategically.
Many business managers tell me that they are so short of time that they just about manage to keep the wheels turning and that they see any time spent on the ‘global’ view as a luxury. They rarely if ever have time to stick their heads above the parapet to see what is going on in the world outside. That said, my view is that it is critical for business owners and managers to have this input as it informs their decision making and in some cases the strategic direction of the business.
The demise of the BusinessLink network across the UK has removed an enormous resource, the loss of which is already obvious. The absence of BusinessLink, or the lack of a NED on your board, does not mean that you have to do without this external input.
We can give you business help and guidance based on our wide and varied experience gained whilst working for major UK banks and PLCs and through our involvement with businesses, and business support networks, across Yorkshire and the North East.
We also specialise in mentoring and coaching programmes, to support you and members of your teams with specific issues.
Another important aspect of business help relates to your balance sheet. It is essential to ensure that your business is funded correctly. Banks, shareholders and investors are paying ever more attention to the shape of your balance sheet and to your gearing. How your balance sheet is structured can have a material effect on your relationship with these very important stakeholders.
Hawkmoor Associates can give you valuable independent business help and guidance to help you maximize the efficiency of your business assets and directors/managers.
