We specialise in working with owners and management teams of businesses with ambitions for growth to give them the comprehensive and consistent guidance, insights and action plans they need to achieve their growth goals.
For an established business that’s now looking to move to the next stage of growth, standard business planning templates aren’t enough. What’s required is a focused, customised and in-depth process that can address the specific situation of the business and create a realistic and actionable path to the future.
Beware: piecemeal advice hinders progress
It’s often the case that a business owner will get advice from various consultants across areas such as marketing, human resources, and IT, as well getting occasional financial tips from their accountant, and possibly ideas from a business coach or from being a member of a business group.
That sort of infrequent and uncoordinated advice can be frustrating for the business owner to try and pull together, and difficult to follow when it comes to actually implementing improvement initiatives and achieving growth for the business.
We work with you, at a deeper level
Many consultants and coaches will give you suggestions or advice, and then leave you to try to implement it on your own. Our difference is we actually work with you at a deeper level, hands-on, inside your business, to help you identify and implement the best business improvement initiatives to reach your goals.
Our style of business management consultancy includes our proprietary Business Success Ecosystem methodology, as well as customised in-house training and one-to-one coaching services, tailored for each clients situation. We also provide a range of tools that will help you understand, implement and maintain the improvements within your business. We want to see you fully benefit from the actions taken.
Due to the depth and transformational nature of our client relationships, we usually partner with clients over a 12-month period, based on an agreed scope of work, to help the business (and the business owners) reach their particular goals.

We add to what your accountant does
In the past it’s often been assumed that a firm’s accountant would provide business growth advice. However, research clearly shows most accountants focus on managing financial history and producing neat, accurate reports. That’s not a criticism; they simply are not trained, nor do they have the confidence, to provide specific proactive guidance across multiple areas of their clients business.
The good news is that we can work with your existing accountant, using modern methods and digital tools, to help you create and implement effective and timely business growth initiatives.
As part of our business growth program we’ll review the financial data and reporting you are receiving and assess if you would benefit from a more detailed or revised format for your business data. The goal is to help you make more informed business decisions.
What does the name Vectis mean?
The word Vectis comes from Latin, and means ‘lever’ or ‘used for leverage’. This is an apt description of our services. We help clients achieve leverage, gaining maximum impact from their efforts to grow their business. This is done through combining the knowledge, expertise and tools provided by Vectis with the industry expertise and passion of our clients.
