ADVISORY BOARD SERVICE FOR BUSINESS OWNERS


Many small businesses do not achieve their full potential because the decision making process is not structured and disciplined.

Why?


As a business owner you need to make decisions which impact on your clients, cashflow, team members and yourself.

Getting help with this aspect of running a business could be the best decision you ever make.

What is it?


An Advisory Board is a select group of independent people who provide strategic advice and support to the business owner.

They provide non-binding advice and therefore are less formal than a Board of Directors.

This means there is greater flexibility in how they operate which fits in with the budget and operations of a small business.




Having an Advisory Board ensures that the Business Management Team stays focused on the big picture and long term strategy, rather than being distracted by short term issues.

The process:


1. Tiansa Group works with you to identify people with the skills and experience needed to help you make the decisions necessary to get the best out of yourself and the business.

2. Michael Huntington acts as Chairperson of the Advisory board and helps you to set the agenda and conducts the meetings to critically analyze the business, ensure accountability and reduce risk, ensuring the sustainable growth of the business.

3. Board members develop an understanding of the business, the environment you are operating in and your competition.

4. Your advisory board will meet each month to review the performance and fundamental aspects of your business.

5. Board Members are kept up to date with the activities of the company between meetings and are available for consultations or to help the business owner by working on specific projects.

6. Minutes of Meetings are circulated and actions followed up on, so that progress is always being made.

BUSINESS PLANNING


Tiansa Group can help you prepare a Business Plan which will address the steps required to meet your business goals, as well identify methods for dealing with the challenges that may confront your business along the way.

Who needs a business plan?

Anyone who is in business or is thinking of starting a business, or raising capital or finance, and is serious about succeeding should have a Business Plan. A proper planning process should be conducted before you invest your, or anyone else’s, time and money in a venture.

Start-ups:

A Business Plan is essential for start-up businesses to ensure they have analysed the market and the opportunities, and to ensure they have sufficient capital to survive until they become profitable and cashflow positive.


It will also help to convince potential investors that you are serious about your business.

Established businesses:

An established business may require a plan to raise finance to fund the next stage of the venture, to assist with mergers and acquisitions or to convey the mission and goals of the business to employees, customers and suppliers. If you already have a business plan and it is not reflecting reality or the business climate is changing and the plan is not reactive enough, Tiansa Group can update your plan to maximize planning as a tool for managing your business and making decisions.
