Springboard your partner for faster growth!

Does your accountant give you a history lesson each year?

Are you frustrated by looking at accounts maybe 7-9 months after your year end?

You cannot change the past – but you can change the future!


How can you address those issues without a full time FD?

Springboard is an innovative service – aimed at aspirational business owners and those who recognise the need for change.

It gives you all the benefits in terms of strategic advice and business planning – without the cost of a full-time finance director!



  1. Start by asking yourself some basic questions: 
  • Where am I now?
  • What’s working?
  • What’s holding you back?
  • What are your key frustrations?
  • Are you working too many hours?

Once we understand your goals we can start to set targets with you and start thinking about an Action Plan for your business.

  1. Goal Setting         

What is your vision for your business?
Where do you want to be in 5 years time?

Try to think in terms of SMART Goals.

These need to be:

  • Specific
  • Memorable
  • Accurate
  • Reasonable
  • Timely
  1. Target Setting and Diagnostic Review

We can help you set outline targets for the next 3 years:

  • Pre-Tax Profit
  • Disposal Income
  • Shareholder value
  • Work / life balance
  • Other factors – such as Exit Planning

We can complete a Diagnostic Review of the business with a detailed SWOT analysis which will also help you analyse the roadblocks which may be holding you back – and stopping your business from achieving its full potential.

  1. The Business Roadmap

Once we’ve gone through your goals, helped you set clear targets and completed the Diagnostic Review we can start working on a Business Roadmap

We can help you build a plan which is focussed on achieving your goals, hitting the targets and perhaps addressing your work-life balance.
