We consult to private companies across a number of industry sectors who are typically rapidly scaling, undergoing significant transformation, seeking fresh growth strategies or experiencing distress .
Our approach is to quickly identify the company’s goal or issue, formulate an achievable strategy plan and execute on that plan. We focus on delivering our clients solutions and outcomes which are both measurable and long lasting.
As well as our in-house consultants, we draw from a deep pool of industry professionals known to the Thames team, our broader network or referred to us for specific projects. Rigorous vetting of all of our consultants prior to engagement and active management throughout from your dedicated relationship manager means you can be confident of the quality and timeliness of our services.
Early stage scale up companies / rapid scaling
For early stage, rapidly scaling companies, we offer a senior pair of hands experienced with growing businesses who also possess a thorough understanding of what is required to build a scalable platform for growth.
We can step into part time roles or undertake engagements where a specific skill set is required but the company may not yet be ready to create a permanent position. We find this often occurs in periods of rapid growth particularly across COO/Chief of Staff, marketing, governance and sales/business development. Often companies will have staff who are able to take on management but lack the experience or industry knowledge to set up best practice frameworks. Upskilling, onboarding and change management form part of our service in these instances.
The outcomes typically equate to broadly ‘getting the house in order’, implementing governance, operational and financial structures as a platform for scalable growth which attracts investors for future capital raises and customers for continued revenue growth.
