The business consulting / advice / coaching / mentoring industry is unregulated and as such anyone can decide to be a business consultant / advisor / coach / mentor or some may attend an information session from one of the many franchise or template coaching systems out there and decide to give that a go.
Our difference is expertise from experience - We are not a franchise nor are we template based, all our associates are ex executives who have excellent track records of running, managing and growing businesses. Our role, as experienced business executives, is filling the gap by providing objective and practical advice or being a sounding board to bounce ideas off or talk to about any matter, and always in the strictest confidence.
