Is this for you?
- Are you a Business Leader, wanting to improve, change and grow your business this year?
- Are you sometimes frustrated with your progress?
- Are you overwhelmed and too busy doing stuff all the time to think about and plan how to move towards your bigger business goals?
- Do you struggle to “see the wood for the trees” in terms of the best way forward?
- Are you frustrated by a lack of time, focus, resources, or consistent pipeline?
If so you are in the right place.
If you want to improve things, and make more of a success of your business this year, then it’s vital you invest TIME to think and plan your way forward.
Unfortunately, time is the one thing Business Owners tend to struggle with the most!
The irony is, once you start to put the time in to planning, then your activities become more purposeful and effective, and that in itself starts to help you create time. But it starts with the first step, you’ve got to carve out some time to get going: we like to say “you’ve got to take time to make time!”
A paper from Business Information and Skills (BIS) in 2013 found that 46% of SMEs do not plan!
Many businesses we speak to aren’t sure what “strategy” is. In fact strategy is often associated with big companies and seen as an inconvenience for smaller business when there is so much to do all the time just to keep the business ticking over!
The issue we find with many businesses we speak to is that they essentially operate in a reactive manner, often just jumping into the next thing that seems right in the moment. They find as a result that they WASTE time, money and effort investing in resources and activities that do not get them the results they want. This is often because they have not put the time into first being clear on their objectives and then working out what is likely to have the most impact in getting them there. They don’t have a strategy: a proactive plan for the result they want to achieve.
“Change is not a destination, just as hope is not a strategy” Rudi Giuliani
We believe you need to have a clear picture of where you’re going and then develop a strategy for getting there. This in turn will help you to make better decisions in the moment about what to invest in, where to focus your efforts and where to invest your time if you want to grow.
Invest your time in strategic planning and you will have more time in the future!

Having ran and developed her own business for 8 years now Beverley understands the challenges, highs and lows of running a business, the sorts of frustrations experienced when wanting to grow and what it takes to succeed. Her drive is to help others move towards their business ambitions and fulfilment of their life purpose.

Bryan CharterWith a 10 year career spent between business development and managing operations in the property services sector, Bryan has a proven track record of growing and managing business. When Bryan joined his first SME (Pulse Management) in 2010 as their Business Development Manager, he was inspired by the impact he could have in a short space of time working with an agile, owner managed business. Leaving them 2.5 years later the business had doubled in turnover and landed some marquee clients in the process. Bryan had also decided that this was the sort of impact he wanted to be able to have for multiple owner managed businesses.
Bryan returned to bigger business to set up and run local business units and further deepen his experience. Having built up a wealth of knowledge in people, process and systems management, Bryan decided to move into SME coaching, consultancy and training in 2015. Meeting Beverley shortly after, they quickly realized their aligned values and ambitions and entered into partnership in November of that year.
Specialising in serviced based businesses, Bryan brings focus, strategic insight and the benefit of a wealth of experience to empower his clients and give them the tools to drive their businesses forward towards achieving their business ambitions. Bryan has a reputation amongst his clients for a practical, down to earth approach that helps provide clarity and helps them deal with their most pressing issues now, whilst making sure that their efforts are always contributing towards their ultimate goals.
Taking time to do this was the hardest decision, there is always something to do, we knew that we need to plan but to be honest this would not have happened without Bryan and Beverley’s encouragement and leadership.

Our board did a Strategy Session and it has really helped us to have a common vision and for me, as CEO, to start to focus on specific and agreed deliverables.
The monthly meetings hold me to account and provide a structure for reporting back on progress to the board. It is a really useful programme for anyone wanting to take their business to the next level.” Gill Perkins
I have aims and goals now rather than panic. I can see progress in increased monthly turnover and in having more of the key structures in place to support the existing growth and enable more. I feel far less stressed about the whole process.” Richard Gamble Frost
