Frequently Asked Questions
First of all, our initial meeting with you is free; the intention of which is to learn more about your business, establish our credibility with you and see if there is anything that we can help you with. At that point we will agree a commercial rate with you. Typically, this is based on a rate appropriate to the service we are providing. Sometimes it may be a fixed fee for a given project. Our experience is that you can quickly recover our costs through the impact we make on the profitability and performance of your business.
Our consultancy target audience are entrepreneurs, professionals, managing director/owners of businesses, government and non-profit organisations with 3+ staff. Having said that, we do work with start-up companies too.
It’s the old adage of working ‘in’ a business rather than ‘on’ it. If you’re in top management or the managing director, you are probably dealing with (firefighting maybe) the daily issues that are ending up on your desk – because the buck ultimately stops with you. By working with us, you are accessing a consultant who knows what it takes to run a business, with the benefit of being able to take an unbiased, ‘helicopter view’ of your organisation and work with you ‘on’ the business. It can also be a lonely place to be and having an experienced ear to use as a sounding board will impact your business and help relieve some of the day to day pressure that you may be experiencing.
In the unlikely event that you do not agree with a consultant’s findings he/she will discuss the reasons why and will always leave the final decision to you.
The objective of a Make Live International consultant is to improve the company, grow the company, eliminate money losses and make the company much more profitable and secure. When this message is conveyed correctly to the workforce, they usually want to co-operate in any way they can.
Absolutely. The Make Live International Management Consulting Code of Ethics strictly forbids any of our consultants to discuss your business with anyone. This also applies to any specialists who are engaged to work in the company. We are very proud that we have never ever had a complaint about any of consultants regarding client confidentiality. If a consultant feels it is necessary to brainstorm with other consultants to gain greater insight to a particular situation or find alternative solutions to a difficult problem, the company name or other identifying information would not be divulged.
Our consultant will expect you to assist him/her in as many ways as is necessary to implement the solutions to the problems that have been identified. The relationship between you and the advisor is a partnership where you work together to make sure that the solutions to the company’s problems are implemented fully. If you do this, it will ensure that the company gains the most from this exercise. Obviously, the consultant will not ask you to do anything unplanned or put pressure on the time you spend running the company
Very quickly, certainly within the first 90 days. It is worth stating though that a Make Live International consultant is only effective if you are committed to learning and implementing change, and are open to being helped and taught how to improve your business. If you have been in business for a while you will know that ‘quick fixes’ don’t work and meaningful improvement takes time. It normally takes 12 months to effect significant change. You will however see small improvements in your business each month which add up to significant overall improvement.
