  • “Following business succession, we had ambitious goals that seemed quite out of our reach. We were introduced to Graham Ballantyne of UK Business Mentoring who has been instrumental in helping us establish a strategic and operational business growth plan. Graham really listens and understands our business and has worked with us to effectively steer us in the right direction. He has enabled us to look upon our business from a different perspective and challenge ourselves to take firm and positive steps towards our goal. Graham’s approachable manner, knowledge and support have made this a very exciting chapter for our business.”

    Benefits To Your Business

    Business Reviews

    Undertaking a review of your business starts with what’s your goal? Where do you want to take the business to? In the course of the review, we will look at over one hundred and fifty different areas of your business including structure, management, processes, marketing, financials and of course your people. We will then present the review to you (and co-directors if you wish) highlighting the strengths and weaknesses in the business together with our recommendations as to actions needed.

    Business Mentoring

    We like to describe ourselves as your ‘challenging friend’ someone who is on your side, to support, help and encourage you but who will also tell it to you straight. Our role is to enable you to achieve your goals and help along the way with any challenges or obstacles that come up on the journey. We work with a lot of our clients for years, some over ten years, they appreciate having the support of an experienced business person who is available to them to discuss issues of any nature.

    Strategic Planning

    For many business owners, strategic planning is something that they rarely seem to get around to. Our role here is to discuss and agree with you on what do you want from the business personally and what the business needs to achieve to enable that. Once we have the ‘Destination’ set, we can work with you to agree on how this should be achieved, what needs to be done, benchmarks to be achieved and an overall plan to monitor progress.

    Whatever challenges your business faces, whether that be around people management, financials, marketing or any other area. Ultimately we help you to grow, turnaround or prepare your business for a sale.
