Looking for a Business Turnaround Consultant?
Hi, I’m Eric Taylor and I’m the CEO of Business Fixer – a business turnaround blog dedicated to helping failing businesses get out of the hole. If you find yourself in a business turnaround situation, then you’re not alone. Every business struggles at one point or another. Don’t worry – you’ve come to the right place.
Why Choose Business Fixer As Your Business Turnaround Consultant
I have been a successful business turnaround consultant for 10 years. I’ve worked with many industries including retail chains, sports clubs, charities, law firms, manufacturers, engineers, restaurants and even a circus.
Here’s some of the reasons why I have a great track record:
Holistic approach using the Business Triangle
I was always taught that every single business has 3 core components which I call the Business Triangle:
- Sales & Marketing
This is the foundation of any business. In my experience, business turnarounds can usually be traced to these areas. If we get these areas right, then the rest usually falls into place. It’s simple – we need to build a strong foundation.
Installing Financial Literacy Into The Team
Most senior professionals claim to be commercial. However, after working with hundreds of senior professionals I have learned that financial literacy is not as strong as it could be. In fact, one of the reasons some businesses are struggling is due to poor commercial decisions that came about from a lack of financial literacy. We need to install financial literacy in all the key players in the business. Once they understand finance and accounting, they can then get to work on painting the new financial picture and bringing it to life.
Creating a High Performance Team
A business is only as good as its people. I offer training and coaching that will turn your team into a High-Performance Team. This comes from 3 main areas:
1. Installing a culture of ownership
High-performance teams take ownership, lead the way and make things happen at all costs. As a business turnaround consultant, my job is to train and coach your people to understand that and then embed it in your company culture.
2. Creating a culture of excellent execution
Most businesses don’t have a business planning problem – they have an execution problem. You could have the best business turnaround plan in the world, but if your team can’t execute it, then it’s worthless. I train and coach people on what good execution looks like and how to do it with relative ease.
3. Lean and Agile Methodology
High performing teams who execute need to understand the art of work. I provide training on various lean and. agile methodologies to make your teams more efficient, less stressed, better communicators and better executors:
- Getting Things Done (GTD)
- 4 Disciplines of Execution (4DX)
- Communication techniques
- Project Management
- and much more
Why Business Fixer is Different
You don’t have to borrow your way out of the hole!
I’m not going to lie – there are many business turnaround experts out there. However, some of them do not fit my values. I don’t like it when a so-called business turnaround consultant or specialist leads the client down the path to borrow more money. This can be dangerous. Borrowing money or incurring any kind of debt is a bad place to be. My business turnaround methodology is all about doing it yourselves by making you stronger, more financially literate and ensuring we put measures in place so it doesn’t. happen again!
Remote Business Turnaround Consultancy
We offer a remote service for a number of reasons. Firstly, it’s more discreet. You might not want a visitor coming to your offices as it may arouse unwanted suspicion. Secondly, due to COVID-19, the world is still navigating the effects and remote solutions seem to be the best option for most right now.
We can perform our business turnaround consultancy via most popular video software such as Zoom, Skype or even Facebook video call.
