Business Consultancy

Business Consultancy Services for Small Businesses

Here at Wisteria, we understand that starting and developing a business is a challenge. You don’t always know the next steps or where to turn. Since 2002, we have been working with small businesses to help push them forward. The businesses we’ve worked with have been in their early stage, but always are driven, well-funded and ambitious about their growth plans.

Our understanding

Making the right strategic decisions is paramount for any business. The direction and success of the business is dependent upon this and it is your responsibility to make the correct decision. Such strategic decisions could be:

  • Do you diversify your service?
  • Is your company structured correctly?
  • How do we maximise value?
  • How do I achieve the growth I need?
  • What’s the best way to raise funding/investment?
  • Do I have the right mix of skills within my team and when should I invest?

Of course, inviting an outsider into your business can be difficult, but such strategic decisions should be made after seeking expert advice. Just take a look at the services we’ve provided to our previous clients in diverse sectors such as: recruitment, media, biotech, telecoms, retail and wholesale, leisure, and financial services.

How we can help

Wisteria offers an expert service, delivered by our in-house experts. We provide business consultancy services for small businesses in one of two ways:

Business consultancy

Typically, we will take this approach when responding to a particular issue or working on a defined project. We will meet with you to better understand the particular project, its aims, and challenges.  We will then work together over a period of days and weeks to push forward and complete the project.

Regular meetings

In this approach, we will typically we meet with you periodically (normally monthly or quarterly) and we review the performance of the company together.  Our role is often about asking the ‘difficult’ questions and then helping you to figure out the next steps
