Our core competencies include general business management, advice and mentoring, all aspects of growth management, financial and strategic planning, cost reduction and profit improvement. However, it doesn't stop there.   Our accreditation with the Institute for Independent Business gives VENTURESPHERE access to over 5,000 highly professional specialist associates with a very wide range of skills, covering all aspects of business.

Whatever your goals - achieving increased profit, expanding, recruiting new skills, rationalizing costs, raising new finance, exit or succession planning - or you simply want someone else around as a 'business friend', giving you the ability to share business issues with an independent person to achieve a better work/life balance for yourself, we can tailor an individual service to fit your requirements.


Why did we start VENTURESPHERE?
Large businesses use business advisors and consultants all the time for a variety of reasons, and it proves to be very effective. However, traditional consultancy is not often well suited to smaller and medium sized businesses. Larger consultancies typically don't have the cost structure or delivery mechanism required to effectively support businesses at this end of the market.

We have found that what Owners and CEOs of this type of business want is practical advice that works - not just management theory. And that usually includes the hands-on task of helping implement the solutions as well.

Our approach is exactly that...
We deliver real, practical help as well as the thinking, planning and consulting services, and we help you implement the desired changes in your business, whatever they may be. Or if you prefer, we can lead the implementation of change - the nature and depth of our involvement is up to you - after all, it's your business.

You may want us involved in detail in various activities - attending outside meetings with you, or representing you on your behalf, negotiating on your behalf, working on critical projects such as profit or cash improvement, increasing sales, better efficiency, helping you plan the future, producing management information and accounts, to name but a few.

Or you may prefer a simpler one-to-one relationship with a 'business advisor' who you can call on from time to time as a 'sounding board', who attends your management meetings, helps you keep sight of the bigger picture, and works with you as a 'virtual board'.
Or, like most clients, you may need some mix of all of this.

We can structure the right solution that is tailor made for your individual needs.
