GAIN LINE Business Consultants

Business Consultancy... With a Difference

Businesses are subject to continuous change, and they should be. Failure to keep up with change within the marketplace leads to them falling behind, with competitors gaining the edge. And we believe that business consultancy should mirror this, with a unique approach that delivers solutions tailor-made to the individual needs of businesses.

Our Growth Sprint will develop and foster a mindset geared towards growth throughout your business, and throughout your entire team.

It’s a Sprint. Not a Marathon. 

  • All outcomes and actionable solutions are led by your team, those who know the business best. 
  • Failures will lead to success, everything is a learning opportunity.
  • There are no bad ideas, everyone’s voice will be heard as they share their thoughts. 
  • Make decisions as a collective as a result of the first-hand experiences within your team. 

Why walk when you can Sprint to the finish?

Capitalise on our approach and challenge the ordinary.

What is a Business Consultant?

In black and white, a business consultant can be defined as a professional with a broad range of skills, who helps business owners grow a business while improving performance and efficiency.

But, we don’t think you can answer the question, “What is a business consultant?” with such cut-and-dry terminology. A great business is the sum of its parts, so doesn’t it make sense to work together and really value the input from the whole team when looking to find the solutions to the problems being faced?

Often, and ironically, a business itself is actually the main obstacle on the pathway to success. Problem-solving is not done from the ground up, “solutions” come from the top, and trickle down. These solutions fail to account for the people who make them tick, those who experience the problems on a daily basis, and often, it is those same people who have been mulling over solutions in their heads, and yet stay silent on the matter.

We break that mould!

William Frederick Halsey Jr, a fleet admiral in the United States Navy during World War II, once said, “There are no great people in this world, only great challenges which ordinary people rise to meet.” 

We find this to be a quote particularly fitting for what we do. Great businesses simply do not happen by chance. If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you have to settle for the ordinary… don’t be ordinary. We help businesses, and the people within them, rise to meet the challenges they face, helping them do extraordinary things.

Take Your Business to the Next Level
How do you know you need a Business Consultant?

Often, when business consultants are mentioned, the knee-jerk reaction for many businesses is ‘why should I hire a business consultant?’ or what is a business consultant. We do understand this reaction, some businesses feel they are too specialised to benefit from outside help, while others, simply might not understand the value that can be added to a business. 

But this is where we really bring value. Our approach is different, built from the ground up, and led by data and first-hand insights into your business, from those who know it best. During our Growth Sprint, your team, and we mean the whole team get stuck in –  identify the problems, and we facilitate actions to deliver solutions.

But, how can you tell you need a business consultant?

In short, there is no definitive answer, and at the end of the day, there is ALWAYS scope for improvement within a business. There is ALWAYS room for growth. But there are some tell-tale signs that indicate a business could bring real, tangible results.

  • Has growth within your business stalled and you don’t know why?
  • Are you lacking the time and resources you need to get the job done?
  • Are you too involved in your own problems to see the obvious solutions?

Our Growth Sprint will address these issues by: 

  • Focusing your team on what matters, you’ll hurdle past incremental change. 
  • Arming your team for success through frequently and efficiently experimenting with business processes.
  • Using a data-led, human-centred approach to fine-tune your business strategy. 

Capitalise on our “less than ordinary” approach.

Bring outside inspiration in, with our team of extraordinary people – remember we are NOT your ordinary business consultants.

How we bring Value as your Business Consultants

We’re all too aware of the challenges faced within a business. The seemingly never-ending daily grind of the need for growth and innovation, while meeting the daily or weekly goals.  Seemingly, the challenge never ends…!

We’ll take your typical ‘boring boardroom’ meetings, and catapult them into the modern era, forming dynamic discussions that ensure your whole team leaves the room energised, aligned, and more than ready to make change happen. 

We foster a sense of togetherness, trust and creativity through facilitation, helping your whole team, think better and work better, together. 

Our approach means as a team we get sh*t done. We’re not going to walk you to the finish… we’re going to sprint you there!

We specialise in breaking down the barriers to success. We help you succeed through: 

  • A joined-up, team-centred approach, that leads to actionable solutions.
  • Ensuring the team are committed and buys into the solutions. 
  • Enabling and fostering innovation. 
  • Getting you to think differently.

But this is where we really bring value. Our approach is different, built from the ground up, and led by data and first-hand insights into your business, from those who know it best. During our Growth Sprint, your team, and we mean the whole team get stuck in –  identify the problems, and we facilitate actions to deliver solutions.

Deep dive into a business challenge

Our experts will guide you through a structured process to challenge you and keep you on track to make sure you come out of the process with tangible practical actions that your team will buy into.

How do you measure the success of a business consultancy?

We provide business consultancy services, with a difference. We’re not your average business consultants and our methods are far from ordinary. Our Growth Sprint involves the whole team, they’re not just for board members and senior management, positions, titles, seniority, they’re all irrelevant! 

It’s all very well and good when we tell you what we do… But the fact of the matter is that the metrics that define success will vary greatly, depending on the client, the business, and the situation. We’re well aware hearing about real-life examples, from real people, in real companies is much more compelling than it is for you to hear us talking about ourselves!! 

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of our Sprint Finishers. They’ll give you a deeper understanding of how we bring about real change, and the impact our work has on the bigger picture within an organisation. No gimmicks, no tricks, just transparency and an honest assessment of the work we’ve done, with the clients we’ve helped to challenge the ordinary.

Dan Sodergren, Co-Founder of Your FLOCK

“It’s a cliche but sometimes you really can’t see the wood for the trees – if we could all help ourselves we wouldn’t need doctors or coaches.

Objectivity is so important – I like to be challenged and learn different ways of thinking. GAIN LINE helped us define how our immediate goals might be achievable and gave us a playbook – now it’s up to Your FLOCK to execute.”

Dogs 4 Rescue

Dogs 4 Rescue is an independent dog rescue in a semi-rural part of Manchester where the dogs live together in a kennel-free environment run by Emma Billington and her team. The dogs spend their days getting all the exercise, socialisation, stimulation, love and care that they need whilst waiting for their forever homes. They are free, happy and sleep in warm beds at night, completely unaware they are homeless dogs unlike those in a usual rescue shelter.

Following the need to expand the team due to the high numbers of dogs sadly being abandoned as people return to work after the pandemic, Dogs 4 Rescue asked us to help them improve staff communication and culture.

Emma Billington, Founder of Dogs 4 Rescue

“It’s really useful to have something that we can start with straight away and I appreciate how the sprint pulled the ideas from us as a team.

Being a not-for-profit, we don’t often get a chance to access services like this, so we’re grateful for all the time and support from GAIN LINE.”
