Business Planning and Business Improvement Programs for small to medium enterprises

We offer structured Business Planning and Business Improvement Programs for small to medium enterprises in Perth, across a range of industries. Our simple engagement process starts with a free, no obligation business risk survey that can be done completely online.


How our Business Advisory Programs work

Free Online Risk Survey

Complete our short, no-obligation, Risk Survey to identify the key risks your business could be facing. This 10 question survey is done completely online, and can be completed in under 5 minutes.

Stakeholder Workshops

Once risk assessments are completed, we facilitate face-to-face workshops with key stakeholders and our advisory specialists. The workshops will cover SME sector benchmarks, research statistics, SWOT analysis and goals, strategies and key action items.

Strategic Report

All outputs from the workshops are captured in a Strategic Report. This report includes market leading benchmarking against similar SME’s; summaries of key analysis; recommends business improvement strategies, and is supported with our advice for implementation.

Tailored Support

Once you have started implementation, we offer a range of tailored support packages to help keep you on track. These range from basic monthly check-ins to Virtual CFO Programs that can be tailored to your business needs and budget.

Additional Business Advisory Services

In addition to Business Planning and Business Improvement Programs, we also offer a range of detailed advisory services targeted to specific business needs.

External CFO Service

External CFO packages are suitable for businesses without a dedicated Chief Financial Officer (CFO) or finance function. This provides accurate financial information in a timely and affordable way, and allows business owners to focus on growing their business without additional stress and concern.

Valuation & Gap Analysis

Understand the true value of your business as is stands today and the valuation gap for what it could be worth. We use our detailed risk and value driver assessment together with sector benchmarks to identify future value improvement opportunities to capitalise upon.

Board of Advice Program

We provide a framework for SMEs to establish an internal BoA to provide business owners and stakeholders with regular access to independent expert advice and personalised support, addressing key strategic and operational challenges whilst developing internal business management skills.
