That means we start every relationship by listening. Some business owners may know exactly what help they need and have a clear aim in mind, and in those cases, we map out a tailored strategy to reach those goals. But there are also those who need a new perspective, so we help you find clarity on what matters most.
Strong client relationships
We spend time really getting to know your business, building up long-term relationships with the aim of becoming a trusted part of your team. We believe this is the only way to genuinely engage with clients, because by making sure we are always up-to-speed on your progress and goals, we can give you truly focused support. And of course, because we monitor your performance closely, we are fleet-footed enough to offer immediate, targeted advice without wasting valuable time reacquainting ourselves with your operation.
Proven business tools
We certainly don’t try to enforce the same pre-designed template on every client. We use a variety of tools and processes – from structured business diagnostics to performance-tracking dashboards – choosing only the ones that match your requirements to help you grow your business effectively.
These tools are important, because they allow us to apply proven techniques that have been informed by the latest business thinking. They also allow you to track your progress, so you are able to measure your success and see tangible results.
A talented pool of experts
But tools and processes are only part of the story. Once we start working together, you get access to a wealth of expertise. After more than a decade in the industry, we have developed an extensive network of specialists we can bring in to deliver high-quality support for everything from sales and marketing, to accounting and HR.
At Henchards, we’ve got everything covered, so give us a call today on 01276 858199 and find out how we can help you.

What’s your business story – and how might it enhance your exit?
Selling your business is no different to any other sale in that it has both objective and subjective aspects. To get the best outcome from your business exit you need to work on both.
A potential acquirer of your business will look both at the facts and the story you tell. Different acquirers will place different emphasis on each. Business sales and valuations are assessed by various factors such as assets, financial record, risks and potential. The first two are pretty clear – they are what they are (or should be although different methodologies may result in different valuations). The second two, risks and potential, are more open to influence by ‘the story’ you tell. This story telling has a bearing on an acquirer’s perception of how ‘attractive’ your business is and how easy might be the purchase and integration.
