The Better
Business Program

The Better Business Program helps people in business succeed. We challenge business owners to think big and work with us on a plan to realise their dreams and goals.

We do this by utilising our NOW – WHERE – HOW business planning approach.

NOW
We start the process by establishing the NOW for the business owner.
 
WHERE
We then challenge business owners on WHERE they want to be. We discuss goals such as desired profits, retirement dates and business sale expectations.
 
HOW
Once we have established the NOW and WHERE we work on action items to help achieve the goals. This is the HOW.
 
We capture all of this in a ONE PAGE PLAN. The important aspect is that we meet regularly to keep business owners accountable.

Succession Planning
& Business Valuation

Businesses inevitably change hands at some stage. Succession options include sale to an unrelated party, management or family buy-out or simply closing the door.

Succession planning and business valuations are therefore critical to getting maximum value out of a business.

CNS Partners can help. Every business owner needs a succession plan. Optimal outcomes are achieved by planning with plenty of time to execute.

We assist by:

  • Providing an indicative value for your business
  • Determining what drives value in your business and creating strategies to increase value.
  • Challenging you to plan for the future and document the process
  • Working out what really matters, including succession goals and actions items to achieve desired outcomes.

We’ll steer you in the right direction and get the best outcome.
