Frequently Asked Questions

Before choosing to work with a specialist advisor like us, you may have some questions. Here we’ve compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions. Please get in touch if you have any more questions; we would be happy to help

How do you know more about my business than we do?

We don’t know more about your business. You are the experts in your own business, and we never forget this.

We help you by bringing ideas, designs and engineering solutions from a broad selection of other industries and situations. This approach, combined with our expertise, means we deliver the best solutions for you, your business and your team.

Freeing you up to do the things that matter and grow your business.

How much time or effort is this going to divert from our normal operations?

Our solutions and improvements are designed to fit into and around your business. Any involvement by your team is an investment in developing the business further.

That being said, we apply our expertise to minimise any disruption to your normal operations.

How can I be sure of the quality of your work?
  • Any solutions and improvements we deliver are a combination of our experience and expertise. This approach means you get the best solution for your business.
  • We ensure our solutions work by understanding and maximising the knowledge and skills you already have in-house. We’re here to help you grow your business, not redo it.
  • We purposefully avoid confusion and jargon – You’re busy and need your solutions to improve your business, not add something to your list.
  • We treat everyone with humanity and courtesy and our clients agree that our information is professional and clear.

But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at some of our client testimonials below.

Who owns the proposals or designs?

Any designs and proposals developed for you are owned by you.

We don’t share any proprietary design and systems, so your intellectual property remains intact.

How can we stop the costs spiralling out of control?

At each stage we set out modules of work with defined outcomes and clearly defined costs, giving you peace of mind and the ability to plan ahead.

Do we have to follow your recommendations?


However, any recommendation we make combines our experience and expertise with your in-house knowledge and skills to create the best solution.

We are also independent, so you can be confident that any recommendation we offer is because we know it’s the best for your business.

If you’re unsure by what we’ve suggested, talk to us. You need to feel assured and in control when it comes to your business and we’re confident in our ability to help you.

We are always happy to review recommendations should new information comes to light or circumstances change.
