To quote Henry Ford “Vision without execution is just hallucination”.
Are you taking ruthless execution in your business or are you waiting for everything to be perfect?

Business Consultant and Risk Advisor
Over the past 25+ years, Stewart Clark has worked with many business owners across a broad section of industries, in both small and large businesses. This work has included extensive business reviews from a financing/operational perspective, through strategy, succession, marketing, risk and more general business disciplines.
Experience has shown that it's not what you make that counts, it's how much you keep which really matters. Many businesses are not clear on these points, in that they are not in control of how much they are generating (revenue/marketing/sales), nor are they clear on what they actually keep (gross/net margins). Strong business disciplines address both of these areas.
Services provided to business include strategic planning, profit enhancement, succession planning and business structuring, marketing and sales performance, risk assessment and advisory.
There are a lot of consultants/coaches who talk the talk and help you plan your journey, but very few will develop the strategy, work with you through the trials of implementing change, and then still be around to see you celebrate your wins and achievements.
