Pricing Strategy: A great pricing strategy is the most powerful but most undervalued weapon in the armoury of small business. Floodlight will help choose and develop an effective pricing strategy with the goals of improving profit and retaining customers.
Management Metrics: Too often mangers are besieged with mountains of meaningless data that confuse management and stop them from making the correct business building decisions. Floodlight will Identify and develop 5 or 6 measures of performance of the company that will quickly and easily put management in day to day control of the company.
Restructuring: Debt and its management is the core of a financial restructuring process. Floodlight will layout and implement a strategy to reduce debt to manageable levels. This process can take a few weeks to develop and several months to see through to a successful conclusion.
Build Assets: It is often possible to utilise the company to create assets for the benefit of the owners. This could be assets outside the company or to place the company in a position to be purchased at the best possible price. Floodlight will examine the company’s capacity to generate such assets and develop a course of action.
Pre-Determined Profitability: Floodlight will develop and implement a plan to maximise profits. This process begins with benchmarking the company’s performance and planning to exceed them. Then Floodlight will develop a strategy to mimic the methodology of Wal-Mart and other big box stores that have used a formula for decades to achieve pre-determined profits. Virtually every type of company in every type of industry can use this approach.
Exit strategy: Too often in small business, money is left on the table by the owner at the time of the sale of the business. This is typically because the company is optimised for sale and there was no predetermined strategy to target a particular buyer. Floodlight will work will the company to develop value in the company and construct a plan for its sale.

At Floodlight we teach our clients the tools to build their business and make it profitable.
When we first met Floodlight we were floundering in a financial quagmire, not knowing which way to turn or who to call on for help.
We had approached one financial institution after another in an attempt to secure debt amalgamation but we were refused.
Floodlight has extensive back ground in financial and business matters. Upon meeting with Floodlight we immediately felt at ease with their approachable and helpful manner.
Although we met with them several times, they never once made us feel ill at ease regarding our financial situation. They showed empathy and were very pragmatic in outlining a financial path for our consideration.
We feel very comfortable in recommending Andrew Gregson to anyone who is seeking sound, well thought-out, financial and business advice.
