 strategic advice

Thea Callan is a retail pioneer. nails inc is her rapidly expanding provider of retail nail treatment services and related products. Rapid is an under-statement. The company is growing at a geometric rate; and has an ambitious national roll-out programme.

We have worked closely with the management team, advising on the underlying business model and helping to reshape it from an "owned store" to a concession-based model. We have helped them identify the key performance indicators and tackle key issues such as location, store management, personnel, pricing, capacity utilisation and product margins. Our consulting role has also involved the second, third and fourth rounds of fund-raising.

You have identified an opportunity (or a problem). Of course, you want support and advice. But you don’t just want a yes-man. You want somebody who isn’t afraid to test and challenge you.

We will help you:
* get your new business idea off the ground
* develop and grow your existing business
* turn around your business and tackle its problems

address your succession issues
