Reducing Your ‘Business Risk’ Through:

Small/Medium Business & Management Consulting

Educational Consulting

Resource Development – ‘Learning Materials’ for Educational and Business needs

We specialize in helping entrepreneurs like you...

Many entrepreneurs are technical experts in what they do but start a business without any formal training or experience in management practices and principles. By "management" here we mean the business of successfully managing the non-technical side of the business, the "back room" activities. As a result of inadequate management, many small businesses fail in the early years. They fail not because of a weakness in the product or service concept they have, but because the business was not properly managed in the back office.

Approachable Consultancy Limited is a small business consulting firm dedicated to helping your business succeed. We truly enjoy working with local business owners, family businesses and Private Training Organisations to help them resolve business and educational issues.

We specialise in assisting small business managers and owners, evolve, morph or otherwise change from a manager of things to a manager of people and from a technical expert to a strategic thinker. As a business emerges or grows to a certain level, management techniques must change or the business will run into trouble. Research has shown this is often a difficult task because of ingrained habits developed over time. However, failure to grow as a manager is a major, perhaps the major reason why a business will falter, stagnate or even collapse under its own weight.

We pro-actively educate your staff in best practice for human resource management and quality assurance. We will help you improve your company's performance and optimise return on personal investment. We work collaboratively as an impartial "third party". Our highly trained consultants offer solutions.

We do not believe in supplying you with a ‘band aid’ to fix a problem. Yes, we may offer an immediate solution or advice but we are interested in solving the cause of the problem so that it does not re-occur for you. We base our solution on a simple causation model.

Similarly, we do not believe in providing you with a solution fit for a corporate with all the bells and whistles for an exorbitant fee. We believe you want a solution that fits your needs with some future proofing.
