Business Advisory Programs

for impatient entrepreneurs who want to get there faster

Wouldn’t you just love to have some shortcuts?

When you’re stuck, a little bit of insight can go a long way. And when it comes to insight, two heads are always better than one.

You already know that building and running your business is hard. You don’t need more information—you need less confusion. You need someone to help you find and fix problems quickly. Insights, best practices, practical advice and tools you can use to break through the barriers holding you back from building (or growing) a great business.

My advisory programs are designed to do exactly that. You get to work with me one-on-one, benefiting from my 30+ years of business experience and my specialty of helping businesses like yours. Programs are designed specifically for your needs and we always make sure your investment in a program is justified.

Investing in an advisory program is a big commitment—both financially and in time. I don’t take this commitment lightly—in fact, I take your success personally. I’ve been where you are now so I understand the doubts and concerns. And I make a living from doing this.

So I will do whatever I can to help you be successful. Because your business depends on it—and mine. And I care.

The programs

Programs are custom-designed for your specific needs around a common framework – the Tornado Method. This gives us a solid base from which to plan the program and ensures we find and work on the root cause of a problem, not just the symptoms. Programs usually fall into one of four categories (shown below).

Programs will usually fall into one of these four categories with the Tornado Method as a foundation.

How it works

Every program starts with a Strategy Session and a Design Review Session. These sessions help us both understand if and how I can help you, what we should be aiming for in a program and what the ROI (Return On Investment) for you should look like.

Programs run in 6-week sprints or 12-week cycles depending on the program and how much time you’re able to devote to it (working on your business, not in it). And a break between programs give you the chance to get settled in with the new normal.

Each program ends with a Program Review to assess how far we got and where we should go next. But I don’t disappear—I’ll be around for as long as you need me.

But even before we start with a Strategy Session I’m going to ask you to do some homework—more about that in a bit.

how advisory programs work

From solopreneurs to $30M construction firms all over the world

I work with solopreneurs and business owners. I specialise in service businesses (though I do work with retail businesses as well). And it doesn’t matter where you live—I run most of my programs in person or online.

My clients include software developers; interior designers; business coaches; sales development professionals; engineering firms; graphic designers and agencies; content marketing specialists; lead generation services; creative strategists; executive recruiters; a concrete company; strategy consultants; life coaches; a documentation services company and a wide-area carbon offset measurement startup.

Here’s what some of them have to say:

There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing a business succeed – I love what I do!

I love the way that Neville can move from visionary to being an execution ninja. He pinpoints the pain, paints the dream, gives you some tough love, and then maps out a step-by-step action plan. It’s a rare combination of being a creative and a systems person, and he holds himself and his clients to account.

In the six months since I started working with Neville, I’ve doubled my revenue and reduced my client engagement time by 30%. I’m now on my way to build the dream I never thought possible before.

Having someone who’s been there and done that to show you the ropes and also ask you the difficult questions to see whether or not your business is validated – and to give you the tools and tactics and wisdom to succeed – is underrated and incredibly valuable.

Neville has been absolutely amazing. After our very first meeting, he was able to help me overcome one of the biggest hurdles I had in my business. I obviously came back and bombarded him with my other business issues and he was able to guide me in the right direction.

Get started with some bedtime reading

If you’re interested to learn more about the advisory programs and how I may be able to help you, I’m going to ask you to start with some reading (OK, it may not quite be bedtime reading).

The 11 Elements of a Successful Lifestyle Business is an ebook that explains the Tornado Method in some depth, and how life (and business) goes wrong if you don’t get all 11 elements right. You will get to know the Tornado Method—an important foundation for working together—and it will speed things up tremendously when we do start talking.

So, fill in the form, I’ll send you the ebook and follow up from there. And if you have any questions, send me an email.

(If you’ve already decided that you’re ready for a strategy session, you can book it here).

PS: Don’t let the “lifestyle” part of the title confuse you—it’s just my way of saying we all need to have a life as well.
