Conduit Consulting

Will your Business Plan maximize your company’s growth, profit and value?

Establishing a company and positioning one to endure not only requires vision, strategies, processes and infrastructure, but also Management and Workforce commitment. If it’s not built to last, it will be difficult to extract much value when you sell.
 
No matter if you are seeking to grow, right-size or sell your business, your Business Plan can be a useful tool to (re-)orient the management team and employees, influence financiers and attract buyers.

Conduit Consulting LLC receives ACQ magazine Global Awards 2012. Conduit Consulting LLC recognized as Independent Strategic Adviser of the Year.

What are you doing to break free from the constraints limiting your company’s success?

Clients often engage Conduit Consulting to perform an independent Business Plan Evaluation as a reality-check. Our independence and expertise reduces clients’ risk of failure and improves strategies and planning in two broad-reaching ways:

  1.  Avoidsself-serving perception bias” (which is when an individual analyzing data accepts information that confirms his/her
     biases and discards, ignores, discounts or rationalizes information that conflicts with those biases)
  2.  Provides a fresh perspective, insights and guidance from those who understand what it will take for clients to not only reach
     their desired destinations, but also achieve sustainable results.

Unlike most Deal Advisors or Strategy and General Management consultants, Conduit Consulting professionals have transaction management, consulting skills and substantial hands-on operating and executive management experience. Our unique multi-disciplinary expertise and vast industry knowledge enables us to quickly recognize obstacles and swiftly overcome obstructions on clients’ path to profitability and wealth creation.
