Why book a small business audit?

An injection of expertise into your product business

Running a business is an exhilarating ride, but it can also get overwhelming too.

There is a huge amount of advice out there available, but sometimes you just need someone who understands your small business niche to guide you.

At some point, the best use of your time and money is an in-depth session with an expert to help cut through the noise and create a clear plan for the year. 

Sound familiar? I’ve love to help.

Working with me to create your small business success plan

What a small business audit offers

A full review of your business, and the opportunity to create an exciting plan of action for the year ahead

We’ll kick off the process with you completing an in-depth questionnaire before working together. Covering a range of topics, the questionnaire will provide me with the context I need to help identify where things are working really well, and where your areas of development are.

It’s a unique opportunity to find out how your business is performing compared to my extensive experience of product businesses.

We’ll spend our first hour together exploring the results of the audit questionnaire.  

You’ll leave the session feeling clear on what is working well, and what areas need addressing to keep your business on track.

In our second hour together, which can be booked on the same day or at a later date, we will work together to create an exciting plan of action to carry you forward through the year.

You’ll leave this session feeling energised and excited, clear on what steps you need to take to build your small business in 2023.

During the following two weeks you will be able to reach out to me via Whatsapp or email to ask me any questions that may come up after our session.

This gives you continuing expert support as you begin to implement your plan.

I have recently had a business audit with Catherine and I honestly cannot recommend working with her enough. Catherine is an ideas machine, perfectly in tune with the challenges a small business owner can face and all about making your goals achievable. Thoroughly recommend.

Frequently asked questions

Everything you want to know about Small Business Audits

Got a question that’s not answered here?  We’d love to help.

Absolutely, I have run many sessions with two people.  Zoom works very well for hosting multiple people at a time.

Yes, any session where we meet on Zoom is recorded and uploaded to a shared folder for you to access afterwards.  Many people prefer this as it means that they don’t need to take so many notes.

Yes! Payment plans are available to spread the cost of a business audit across three months.

Typically these sessions are held on Zoom, which has the added benefit of being able to record the session for later review.

However, if you are based, or willing to travel, to South East London, I am sometimes able to meet in person.  Feel free to ask!
