Customized Business Advisory Services
The CFO & Business Advisory program is a suite of services designed to support your business goals through a customized and structured approach.
Over a twelve-month period, I become a member of your team; providing guidance, advice and ongoing support to help you make real, measurable changes to your business.
The program is centred around three key objectives:
1. Improving profitability and cash flow
2. Providing peace of mind that your business is under control
3. Increasing the value of your business
It is delivered in three phases:
We take an in-depth look at both the financial and non-financial elements of your business to understand your current position. This may feel like a reality check!
- Financial Health– We analyze the financial health of your business, and together we determine your strengths as well as areas for improvement.
- Q&A– During this comprehensive discussion, we discuss your strengths, discover challenges, uncover opportunities and much more.
We roll up our sleeves and prep for both short- and long-term growth, including profitability and cash flow improvement.
- Profit Improvement Planning– We review the four ways to profit improvement and the impact that small, incremental changes can have on your bottom line.
- Strategic Thinking– We take a 30,000-foot view of your business to provide clarity and focus for your vision.

- Key Performance Indicators– We identify, measure and interpret your business’ critical success factors.
- Systems and Processes– We review, assess and develop systems and processes for efficient reporting, workflow and communications throughout your business.
Now we transform findings into actionable steps, monitor progress and evaluate results. We can also re-evaluate plans and/or strategies and adjust where needed.
- Monitoring and Scorekeeping– We monitor, review and evaluate your KPI’s and financial performance against forecasts.
- Business Advisory– Using a collaborative approach, I’ll be your sounding board to keep you focused on your business’ objectives.
