Corporate Advisory Services

Support every step of the way through the complex and changing world of business with frontline advice from experienced business professionals.

From the basic business platform to senior management structures, from systems and controls to e-commerce, from innovation and brand building to worldwide sourcing strategy, from exceptional growth to business downturn, we have direct experience and are at one with our clients every step of the way.

We support Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of business development and automatically enjoy an unspoken status within the Christian Douglass client portfolio.

The role of the entrepreneur is often misunderstood by many in the business and financial services industries.

At every stage of the process there are extreme difficulties to overcome and none more challenging than when success finally comes. And when it does it often hits like a hurricane. Everything you have taken for granted is challenged as your organisation and everyone in it creaks under the pressure. You often find that success is more painful than the process of getting there.

Most entrepreneurs are more inspired by building successful Brands and seeing their energies and vision converted into businesses of real value and purpose. Wealth considerations are often secondary but when opportunities do come it is essential to the peace of mind and the security of the entrepreneur that the support team understands what the business means to him and how almost inextricably linked they have become.

As the business develops and the potency of your creation is recognised, you will need to strengthen customer service and liaison, strengthen peoples skills by training and recruitment, recruit senior management, develop better information systems, address stressful banking and finance relationships, review manufacturing and distribution arrangements, review innovation strategy and process, develop brand strategies and control mechanisms, relocate the business or parts of it nationally or internationally, strengthen sources of supply and renegotiate contracts ... all in all, many complex and challenging situations.

Perhaps you need short-term support to allow you to concentrate on what is great about the business – your vision and your ideas!

Think Christian Douglass. We have the technical expertise and practical experience to give you all the support you need. Our unique blend of backgrounds in accountancy and law make us a natural one stop shop for medium-sized businesses.
