CEO & Board Advisory

CEO & Board Advisory Services

BGC’s CEO & Board Advisory services are made available to selected clients who are embarking on a 12 – 36 month change program that culminates in a clear transformational outcome, such as:

  • A step-change in operating scale
  • Digital transformation
  • Merger or Acquisition
  • IPO
  • Exit or divestment

To help you achieve your desired outcome we work alongside your CEO to develop and implement a roadmap that enables you to achieve your desired outcome in the most efficient and effective way possible – ensuring your resources (human, financial and physical) and operating systems are properly aligned to execute the required change with minimal disruption and maximum benefit.

For the last two years Geoff has acted as our one-man advisory board – helping us calmly navigate the COVID challenge and achieve very significant sales and profit growth in a heavily impacted industry.

His sage advice and input has improved just about every aspect of our business (sales, marketing, operations, IT  and CRM) and has helped us transition from a family-run business to a professional medium enterprise.

This year Geoff is focussed on helping us implement our exit plan and I have every confidence that he will help us achieve an Enterprise Value several times greater than when he started.
