A local entrepreneur is celebrating the official launch of his new business consultancy, and has already secured his first two retained clients in the region.

Alan Adams has launched Shrewsbury-based Horizons Consultants to help business owners across Shropshire and surrounding counties to grow their profits, expand their client bases, and ultimately to make their businesses work for them.

“There’s never been a tougher time to be in business than right now” explained Alan “which is why many people think that I’m mad, or brave to be launching my own dedicated consultancy service. And yet now is precisely the time that most business owners need the maximum support. And that’s not hand holding but actual practical and tangible advice that can impact on their businesses straight away.”

A Master Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner, Alan’s commercial background and understanding of the challenges facing  businesses right now has already helped him secure two retained clients, with dozens more attending his first workshops and seminars. “We’ve taken on a local PR agency and a health and safety-focused company already, to help them make what are good businesses truly great. And our early Goal Setting Workshops have been really well attended, with some fantastic feedback.”

Initially trained in International Disaster Engineering and Management, Alan is able to bring significant expertise in recovery planning to his advisory role, and is a firm advocate of setting good procedures and practices up from the start. “We have a range of tools at our disposal and can work from top-line strategy right through to hands on tactics, covering the full range of business disciplines. And, unlike many consultants, we don’t focus solely on sales but take a holistic approach across the whole business, including operations, purchasing, HR, accounts and finance, and marketing.”

“The core thing is really drilling down into each business, and absolutely getting under the skin, and we do this by asking the right questions, understanding the markets, and investing time in getting to know each and every client. Only then can we best advise the steps to take, making our solutions truly tailored to meet their needs” Alan added.

“Anyone interested in finding out more about our approach, discussing how we could help their business, or simply having a no-obligation initial chat is really welcome to call a member of our team” Alan concluded.
