My areas of expertise include:

Business planning

It’s important to have goals – but objectives mean nothing unless you have a clear plan in place to help you achieve them! I can help you put together a solid strategy for growth that allows you to move into the next phase with newfound confidence and strong financial foundations.

Efficiency optimisation

There’s nothing I love more than finding new ways to cut costs and boost profits.  I can help improve all areas of your business, whether that means using some key business disciplines, team structures for best effectiveness as profitability, reviewing import/export arrangements or something else entirely.

Cashflow forecasting

I can help you prepare for each financial chapter by looking at your invoicing procedures, credit control processes, and predicted income and expenses, then putting together projections that can be used to explain your cash position and justify plans for expansion.

Outsourcing management

I’m a huge advocate of outsourcing. At its best, it will mean that the outsourced task is not left on the side of someone’s desk, is delivered on a timely basis and therefore maximising its benefit.

However, outsourcing is an area that can cause a great deal of damage to your business if relationships are not managed correctly and your real-time business requirements are not monitored consistently. I can assess your requirements and find ways to improve your current contracts. My role is to ensure outsourcing is a benefit to your business and a positive experience.

My areas of expertise include:

Personal finance reviews

I’m not a regulated finance professional – but I have many years’ experience in helping business owners make their finances work harder for themselves and their families. If I believe you will benefit from chartered advice, I will point you in the direction of one of my trusted IFAs.

Banking Tenders

I am a highly experienced global cash management specialist who’s here to help you make light work of the bank tender review process.

Testimonials

I have now been working with Sarah, for several months and if I am honest was wondering, in the beginning, were reaching out to a business consultant was going to take me. Happily, What I did find is that Sarah has many years of business and banking knowledge under her belt with which to draw on for advice and guidance helping clients like me move forward in the right direction. The meeting atmosphere she creates is both relaxing and informal allowing me to have my regular vent at the beginning, but which in turn is highlighting some of my issues within my business, and that is where she then sets about working with you and suggesting how we can possibly turn things more positive. Whilst we talk there is always things that she suggests that sound great or highlight what is available, but I am often too busy to handle a selection of options which is again where Sarah will roll up her sleeves and do investigating work herself and come back with the best options available for your circumstances. I do believe that people buy from people and trust them better as they get to know the person, I have a few similar likes with Sarah and so sometimes we tend to wander off project but after a few laughs, we do continue. For me personally, this relaxed mix of help and guidance in such a manic world is rewarding both personally and for my business. Sarah thank you for the invaluable guidance and many laughs.
