Is everything in place for your exit strategy?

Your business has evolved to a stage where you are almost ready to take that final step of making final preparations to sell. Are you spending the majority of your time working on your business or are you still tied up working in your business?

To optimise your business, you will need to revisit and fine-tune every element.

Now that you have assembled your winning team, you will need to go through  another process mapping exercise to ensure your business systems are all running at maximum efficiency. You should fully audit your customer journey, taking into account any recent additions and changes to the team makeup.

You will also need to look again at your sales and marketing activity. Are you definitely taking advantage of the right markets and allocating your marketing budget in the most cost-effective way possible?

Now that your end goal is that much closer, you may also find that some of your targets have shifted slightly. Are your current KPIs still relevant or do they need updating?

You may also want to look at making some simple cosmetic changes. Adjusting your organisational structure, aligning marketing materials and even physically re-organising office spaces can make a big difference when buyers look to assess your business.

Working with Gavin has given me clarity, its valuable having systems in place so I know that if I do something, I will see a positive improvement and I am already starting to see that.

What others had to say

Following the recent start of a new venture, I turned to GJC to assist me and act as a business adviser/consultant. Gavin & the team came into my business, reviewed how things were running, and developed a plan to help my business grow and succeed. Gavin has helped to structure my business and focus myself on the goals I’ve set, making my business is more profitable. Gavin helps to make business seem simple which in my trade is very helpful! With the structures now in place, I’m able to fully concentrate on what I do best, as there are processes in place to run the business and also grow the business moving forwards.

I approached GJC over 3 years ago, in order to help structure and grow my business. At the time, I was working alone but knew my plan was to build a firm and manage others and larger projects. Gavin came in to the company, identified areas for improvement and growth, from there he helped me to set up structures and procedures to aid with the growth of the firm, along with targets to achieve my goals. Gavin was approachable, easy to work with and had a great ability for helping me think like an owner of a business not a worker within it. My business has grown significantly in the time I’ve been working with Gavin, now employing over 20 members of the team, showing a turnover growth of 10-fold and a sister company now up and running. Gavin continues to be a key part of the company and will be well into the future.
