Costs

It’s hard to be specific, as each project requires a different amount of effort, but I always offer a free initial consulting chat by phone to try and determine your needs, after which we can work together on a solution or service which fits your budget. I work both for fixed term defined project rates and daily/hourly rates, depending on what best fits your needs. I also work on a retainer basis for ongoing tasks.
I understand that resources, both in terms of time and finances can often be tight. My aim is to save your company money by working with the best suppliers or service providers and managing projects effectively, efficiently and on time.

Could the new staff member at senior level you’re considering be unnecessary? Maybe, instead you require someone like myself to initiate, plan, manage and complete a defined project on your behalf and potentially if needed train in existing or new staff once implementation has been realised.

Do you need someone that will find the best suppliers and service providers, or indeed target customers and distributors for your business? Saving you both inordinate amounts of time and gaining cost savings on your behalf.

Effective strategy and planning in all areas of your business can save everyone a lot of money, but strategy and planning is just one area where I can help, I am experienced in a host of areas of business set-up, from grant applications to premises design and layout right the way down to simple yet time consuming projects such as implementing barcode and costing details on your pos systems.
