From generation to generation

As you become more successful, you will acquire more profits, assets and wealth. The family will also enjoy a better standard of living. However, the main issue will be how to transfer that wealth from generation to generation, optimize investments, save taxes, and ensure a proper succession planning for the business while keeping its core values and culture.

Our role will be to valuate the wealth of the family, assess the next generation’s ability to run the business, manage the assets, and structure the best trust and decision making process in order to ensure a fair distribution among family members based on their profiles, skills and engagement.

Having updated balance sheets, income statements and administrative documents/tasks always processed on time is a key challenge that must be well managed among all related professionals and authorities.
 

From market share to market dominance

Growing the market share is a continuous challenge for solid companies. The next step is not only to be well positioned in the market but also to move up in the ranking and ultimately dominate the market.

Our role is to guide the business to stabilize its positioning in the market, set an ultimate growth strategy to lead the market, neutralize the competition and start expanding to new territories for hedging its local risks and optimizing its return on investments.

Sometimes companies are ready for making a global difference but they get busy in the daily operations and challenges. Don’t just think of opportunity cost, think of opportunity gains and market leadership.

From strategy to dashboard

Strategy automation is the key to measure and enhance the operation. The first step is to go digital and then automation will be the next natural move in order to collect data, analyse it and make wiser decisions.

Our role will be to document the workflow, spot the bottlenecks, provide recommendations, implement the needed ERP – Enterprise Resource Planner and customize all the needed modules to go 100% paperless.

Each decision maker will enjoy his/her own customized dashboard and business becomes more joyful and more transparent while keeping tight control; without needing to micro-manage on daily basis. Now you can drive your business like you drive your car...

SALES TEAM DEVELOPMENT

Companies are generally downsizing but they keep investing in their sales force. Why?

  1. Sales is the heart of the company. No sales means no business at all.
  2. No matter how much you cut costs, the business won't sustain itself if you don't sell enough.
  3. Salespeople are not born, we parent them.
  4. Investing in your sales team ensures the highest return on investment.
  5. The world is going digital. The sales process is continually changing. Consumer behavior has shifted. Every company needs a sales team that can face the market transformation.

MANAGEMENT AND FOLLOW UP

Building a business is similar to building a home in so many ways:

- Location: To build a permanent home, you first need to invest in solid research to ensure finding the most suitable spot.

- Blueprint: You sketch the design, colors, and general branding to set your image.

- Plan: You create a plan to guide you through the steps you need to take as you start building and paving the way towards your goals.

- Experts: You look for the people you know will make your business bloom. Make sure you lead the way whenever construction reaches a halt. It is yours after all.

- Fairness: If this business includes more than one partner, make sure to involve them in the decision making process. It’s all about common ground.

- Foundation: You have to make sure you have rock-hard foundations, as they’ll hold your business forever. For this to happen, you need the right infrastructure: HR, Finance, Sales, Marketing, and Project Management.


Whether you travel a lot or you are too busy running the show, our job is to follow up on all the essential functions of the business and make sure productivity is always at its best.

Building a business requires your lifelong commitment, just like building your dream house.
