Do you have concerns for the future of your business?

Empower Business advisors work with manufacturers, trades, retail, service businesses, and not-for-profits across Northland and beyond.

We work closely with businesses such as yours to help you engage in forward looking planning and careful evaluation of your priorities to ensure you have control over your future.

One thing our clients have in common is that they’re committed and motivated to making positive changes in their business.

Here are some common scenarios we can help you with:

Business Owner Concerns

Our Solution

How it Benefits You

"My business is not achieving its potential for profitability and growth."

Our business advisors work with you to understand your vision for your business and develop an appropriate business development strategy. Together, we’ll review the plan monthly against performance, and revise as required. 

You will have a business strategy that will form the backbone of your business. So you stay focused on achieving your vision.

"I am spending too much time in my business, away from home and family."

We help you put in place a ‘best practice’ approach for your operations. Using cost-effective software solutions, your operation will be more consistent, timely and effective.

Your business will be more efficient and you will spend less time on admin and unimportant tasks.

"I rely on one or two key staff to help me run my business.I worry what would happen if they left or were unavailable at short notice".

We help you streamline your processes and store them in a dynamic knowledgebase. You can then be confident that you will always know what everyone in your business does!

A business knowledge base that will repay you each day and have significant value when you come to sell your business.

"My business is making a profit but I never seem to have any cash!"

We’ll analyse your cashflow management, and implement policies and procedures so you can hold onto more of your cash – and spend less time managing it.

Improved cashflow management and cash position will give you the funds to grow your business

“I’d like to get a better understanding of the numbers that drive my business, but I don’t know where to start.”

We get it – numbers can be daunting. So we’ll work with you to identify the most essential key performance indicators (KPIs) for your business, and create easy systems and tools to help you with KPI measurement. 

Having suitable KPI reporting at your fingertips lets you know exactly what’s happening in your business right now. Giving you the confidence to make the right decisions to grow your business. 

“I need to increase sales.”

Our business advisors will help you develop a Sales and Marketing strategy alongwith the KPIs to keep you on track.  We can provide you with tools to help you keep track of existing customers and new enquiries, to ensure that no opportunities get missed or forgotten. We’ll also work with you to fine tune your sales process.

Once you have a plan on how to achieve more sales, the use of software tools will make it easier to track every customer and prospect, so no opportunities are missed. Making the most of your existing leads and customers is the best value-for-money when it comes to increasing sales.

“We are struggling to manage the uncertainty in our business."

Our business advisors will review your company’s demands to adapt to the new business environment to stay relevant and competitive. We will work closely with your senior management team to develop and execute a business strategy to meet these uncertain times and ensure you are on a path to profitability and success.

Our business approach and commitment to our clients is different. We work closely with your management team to ensure your business strategy is executed as per plan and that you achieve your vision and goals.

“I’d like to sell my business at some stage, but don’t know how to get the best price for it.”

Business succession planning and exit planning is about developing the right strategy  and creating a turnkey operation that makes it easy for a new owner to step in and take over. Our service helps you develop your strategy and then keep on top of the numbers to achieve your goals. Plus we can help you to implement  business process improvement tools to systemise your business so it’s easy to manage. 

Increasing the value of your business is central to a solid exit strategy: we can help you with all aspects of this, so you get the best price for all your hard work.

As you can see in the scenarios above, our business advisors don’t just tell you what you need to do – we work alongside you to achieve your goals on time.

“We have owned our business for seven years and about a year ago decided we wanted to improve our business systems and operating procedures. With Trevor’s expert advice we quickly implemented a great business management system that gives us much a better insight into how our business is performing on a monthly and annual basis. Trevor is very patient with us (!) and gives us lots of ideas on how to increase our income and keep our costs down.”
