Inform Business helps business owners make decisions that increase:




Our advice is based on detailed financial analysis and review of existing operations and prospective changes – but with a practical understanding of challenges and opportunities that face business decision makers.  So the support given will be with deep insight, vision and added “energy” which has helped clients in many different sectors and with different issues over the years.

Fees are normally charged on a time basis though there are occasions where the risk of uncertainty of outcome is shared with clients.

Projects are accepted only with owners/executives who have:

  • the will to change
  • the authority to act
  • the incentive of personal benefit
  • good products or services in a viable marketplace
  • the willingness to pay for advice and support and
  • where the potential value of our input is expected to be higher than our fees.

Of course, we are happy to meet for a confidential meeting for which there is no charge.

Generally an initial telephone conversation can establish whether to meet.

Working with Clifford on a sales, marketing and growth plan really helped re-energise my whole attitude to the business.

He helped me explore new ways of driving the business forward with a strong purpose and a detailed plan.

The results of our time together have already been significant.

I now feel much more motivated and very positive about the future of my business


Managing director, Confidential

[After a 3 hour New Business modelling session with Cliff – using Strategyzer]

It is really helpful to have an overall  plan or view of the business and I now feel that everything is “in one place” as opposed to all these ideas or bits of info being “out there”.

So the work on the detail can now start in earnest…  I can see there is much work to be done on the detail and testing.


Start-up founder, Confidential

A three month commitment to the discipline of structured management review meetings.
