ARE YOU GOING TO LEAD IT OR FOLLOW?
The Visionary Solutions approach looks at repurposing people, places and products to complement the fundamental marketplace changes. Predictions look at where you expect the world to be. Leading takes it towards a vision. When clients come to me, they often point out the symptoms of their problem. Imagine if you could discover the underlying issue that was causing them and be on the right track within an hour? You only get one shot for your vision to lead. Wait too long and you’ll be following and chasing another leader. Whether the problem is how to point your business or a specific component of it that isn’t working, I won’t rewrite what you’re trying to achieve, but I will draw together the key components of it and connect them in an optimal way that quantum leaps your business without leaving you behind. I call the approach 'one-shot' consulting. You only have one shot at getting it right and being the leader in your industry, one shot at first impressions and with my solution based approach, your business will get the one shot boost that it needs to overcome the stumbling blocks and get ahead. The approach is active and puts your decisions as the driver. It is not reactive to competitors that have taken the lead in your field with you holding onto their coat tails. The companies that I have worked with range from start-ups, rapidly-growing scale-ups and more established organisations. They may currently be in a dominant market position or they may have some specific areas for concern. They all, however, wish to anticipate growth areas and position themselves for the future so they thrive. Industries that I have worked with include technology, property, outer-space development, investment and financial services and, I find throughout, that a "fresh set of eyes" can add huge value from a business perspective. This, combined with having an innovative mind and being able to articulate the benefits of a particular strategy is why more and more clients from unfamiliar industries seek out my expertise. The approach to solving problems is often with one eye on the immediate and another on the longer term. Too many businesses, however, focus on the quick fix and forget the future. The solutions that One Shot create will fix today’s problems whilst also identifying a long term solution that aligns with your vision. “The one thing that’s constant is change”. What problems and fundamental changes are you anticipating?
I’ve found Charles to possess one of the sharpest minds of anyone I’ve met. Armed with this intellect, Charles consistently provided sound advice that has helped me to manage and grow my business – a Pilates studio whose mission is to provide the highest quality physical method that Pilates offers. My experience wit h Charles is that he takes the time to understand my business – both its challenges and opportunities – providing counsel that is strategic and creative.Ketty Bucca: Pilates and Wellness Business
Charles guided and advised me through a property development project. His attention to detail was very precise and he presented the options and directions that could be taken. His practical and no nonsense approach was invaluable to me and saved me time and money. One of the key benefits was scheduling so that things continued to move forwards even when bottlenecks arose. His advice and guidance on another business of mine in the dance and wellbeing industry was also very constructive and forward thinking in its approach.Lily Cashin: Property and Ballroom Dancing School Owner
