Advice & assistance to help you put your business on a firm footing.

Business Advice, Mentoring & Funding

Hi, my name’s Alan Gitsham.

As a business owner, you’ll know that running a business can be extremely enjoyable and rewarding, but it can also be very challenging. 

You can easily handle tasks within your own range of skills, but aren’t you often called upon to understand and resolve problems which require skills that you don’t have.

As an Entrepreneur you want to concentrate on your customers, look after their needs and beat your competition.

But you also need to look after the money-side of the business and manage it effectively so you don’t have to spend time juggling your cash to pay your employees and your suppliers, let alone your utilities and the taxman.

This is where I can help.

As a qualified accountant and management consultant, I have experience of different industries as well as different functions including finance, marketing and people management. I have also started and run my own businesses, as well as bought and sold companies.

Implementing proper financial management, budgetary control and cash flow management will put your business on a firm footing and enable you to get on and run your business without wasting time and sleep on day-to-day cash flow problems.

I can help you raise Grants and start-up funding, Equity funding, Loans and debt re-financing, and if the business is currently struggling, I can provide a turnaround strategy to get it back on track.

Practical business planning, especially taking into account the maturity of the business, will show you what you need to do to grow the business and will forewarn you of the crises you are likely to face as it grows.

Plans to grow may also involve mergers, acquisitions and investments, and I have experience with those. And you may decide, or at least plan, to exit the business, so a valuation and sale may be required. Good planning and actions taken now can increase the value of your business in the future.

I mentor and advise at very affordable rates.

Let’s have a chat over coffee.

Call me anytime on 07467 322965.

I am based in Christchurch, Dorset, and work throughout the South of England.
