Thats where Business Doctors can help.

We can also help you to evaluate the value in your business so you can decide whether to sell or scale up for growth.

"Careers Wales Mid Glamorgan & Powys Ltd benefited significantly from Graham's extensive knowledge of business and his previous experience as a Board member during his four years as our Chairman. His ability to focus our work on the needs of stakeholders and the business community, together with his enthusiastic and supportive style helped the organisation to succeed. He led the Board during a complex and sometimes challenging merger process with energy and commitment. I was also personally grateful for Graham's support when talking through organisational issues."

"Graham has been an instrumental and highly professional Business Consultant when providing advice and guidance to my various business ventures as they grew. He can also roll his sleeves up and support when the going gets tough.

"Graham has been working with our team since 2016 as we seek to enhance the visibility of the facilities we have for Business Owners across South Wales. The combination of seminars, workshops and events built around progressive topics have attracted many visitors from the business community. The 100 plus tenants we have on site have also found the information, advice and guidance hugely beneficial as they overcome the challenges associated with running a modern business. Graham has been able to tap into an extensive network of contacts which makes him quite unique." January 2021

"As Chair of the Wales Fraud Forum, I wanted to thank you and your colleagues from the GDPR Alliance for the very informative and engaging masterclass you presented on readiness for the General Data Protection Regulation. I have seen you present on this subject before, and you avoid the temptation to scare the audience with too much emphasis on regulation and the risk of financial penalties, instead concentrating on the benefits and opportunities of compliance. It was particularly evident that, not only did you have a good grasp of the theoretical aspects, but you were able to cover in detail many of the practical implications for organisations. Delegates went away with a sense of the overall scale of the task ahead, without feeling overwhelmed, and having a clear view of some of the concrete steps they need to take now in order to prepare their workplaces for the new regulations." Summer 2018
"Graham has been a tower of strength to both Jarrod and myself by providing guidance, advice and support in a structured practical way. We now have the confidence and self belief to move to a position where we can work on our business rather than constantly in it and that has allowed us to build a team that will help us achieve the ambitions and aspirations we have for our family business." October 2020
"During the last seven months myself and Samantha have had the pleasure of working directly with Matt. During this time he has invested a lot of his knowledge and skill with us and helped us fine tune our existing business, ADT Home Services Ltd. He has improved our management skills, and supported us through uncertain times, which in turn has made us better business owners. Matt has also given us the confidence to go and try something different and supported us in every way possible to start a new venture, tenty Ltd. A new business that is about to launch! Matt has been an invaluable asset in helping us to aim for further successes in achieving our vision."
"As a fast pace financial services company we understand that from time to time, it is important to stop and reflect. We engaged Matt Preece from the Business Doctors who came and undertook a no obligation diagnostics on our business to see what was going well and what was not going so well. What struck us most with Matt was how approachable he was and how sincere he was, he was not interested in papering a crack with a ban aid, he really wanted to get on the pitch and coach. Matt has helped us from things such as recruitment to staff engagement to one-to-one staff coaching on standards and behaviours. Matt has a number of tools in his bag to do the job and is fantastic when it comes to analysing what tool is the right tool for each job. Matt is very forward thinking with his questions to really understand how he can help the business and add true value. Whilst I was always sceptical about business coaches, Matt put those concerns to bed with his genuine and customer centric approach, whilst putting our business at the heart of everything he does."
"As a business we were looking for new ways of working to help us scale, and through a series of discussions and meetings with senior staff Matt proved himself invaluable in helping us define and implement those new procedures. Matt's communication skills with staff at all levels, insight into motivations and bottlenecks and methodical approach to change helped us work through our new procedures as a team and get where we needed to be."
