Why partner with a business adviser?
If you struggle with aspects of planning your business, leading your team, identifying growth opportunities or focusing on an exit plan, talk to Henchards.
We bring ideas, support, structure, questions, personal guidance, experience and energy needed to help you drive your business forward with your end goals in sight.
It’s all about relationship
Since Henchards began working with business owners back in 2003, we’ve developed a range of trusted techniques and processes. These structured methodologies have been proven to work in a wide variety of businesses, time and time again.
That’s not to say we take a cookie-cutter approach to your business. We don’t. Our tools and processes are flexible, and we’ll tailor our approach to match your needs. We can do this because we spend time getting to know your business – and you. In other words, we’re as invested in your personal ambitions as we are in your business goals.
What does this mean in practice? It depends on what stage your business is at, but we’ll typically run an in-depth ‘business review session’ to ascertain where you are now, a ‘futures session’ to determine where you want to be and where the business needs to be to meet those goals and a ‘goals and planning session’ to agree priorities and plans. After that, we’ll continue to work with you to measure, review, adjust, and celebrate your achievements.
Building successful businesses
Over the years, we’ve developed a track record of working with lots of different businesses, particularly agencies, consultancies and technical service providers. We’ll work alongside you to help solve your challenges, relish opportunities, add to your core strengths and stimulate new and exciting ways to run your business now and in the future.
Henchards works with company owners typically running a business with a £1m+ turnover per annum across Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Berkshire and London. Talk to us about getting the business advice you need.
Celebrating 20 years of Henchards
From the germ of an idea into a twenty-year journey; in February 2003 Henchards was established. What did we plan, how did it turn out and what’s next?
Henchards’ Director, Ian Parker, tells the story, “I don’t come from a family of entrepreneurs, nor did I harbour grand plans of business ownership when I was a lot younger. I lacked a ‘guiding’ hand when it came to work and business. As a consequence, I had always made ‘what next?’ decisions as each opportunity or obstacle presented itself. Whether through luck, judgement or otherwise I started the business having just left Orange, where for four years I led the multi award-winning customer service team, with an itch to do something differently.
We have talked to other business owners and they are taken aback that we forecast our revenues, costs and cash flow
