Unorthodox Solutions Proven Results!
Who I am is a consultant, and like many consultants I wish to bring my expertise and insight to businesses who are looking to improve and drive their businesses forward, or bring them back from the brink. Yet the difference is in how I achieve it and what I wish to impart on my clientele. It can be summated in the Logo ‘Elucid8’, a play on the word ‘Elucidate’ which comes from the Latin word ‘Elucidatus’ which means to make something clear or to explain. The number 8 being used in many different cultures and signifies harmony, balance along with noble business pursuits such as the pursuit of success and wealth.
In short what I bring to the table is harmonious success with solutions, direction and strategy that serves the business while being sustainable and ethical. For that reason I will make your business better in a way you can rest easy at night, with the tools and guidance to ensure you understand clearly.
In conjunction with my network of professional resources, I am more than capable of providing end-to-end holistic and compliant solutions for your business.
When a business has reached a plateau or the word ‘busy’ is no longer a headline but the name of the paper; it can be difficult to break from the status quo. I can assess and provide detailed performance improvement plans for your business allowing you to achieve operational efficiency.
NEW MARKET & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Sometimes it’s hard to see the potential when in the thick of work, and fantastic opportunities can be missed. Furthermore, even if those opportunities or dreams are there, they can sometimes seem impossible or daunting. My experience will empower you to achieve those goals, and see the true potential of your business.
Automation has been the latest buzzword in a long list of other synonyms for improvement and progress. I bring optimisation with a view for organic and sustainable change rather than change for change’s sake.
Driven by generating extraordinary value, I deliver business turnaround through detailed analysis of the current situation, breakdown of issues to manageable components, development of shared understanding among staff, and providing realistic strategic options for improvements.
