Business Phoenix was launched to support the many small and medium sized businesses battling to survive the shock of the coronavirus lockdown.
The founders of Business Phoenix have been through the victories and defeats of running SMEs. We have passed through the pain of an administration; we have also watched profits surge and our companies expand. We know, only too well, that the experience of running a failing company can be a terrifying and lonely experience. We also know that achieving turn-around success can be a uniquely exhilarating feeling. We have done both!
SMEs are looking for advice in many technical areas as they battle with a myriad of new threats, with new regulations and with new and strange opportunities for Government support. The situation changes every day and there are still all the normal challenges of running a company: cash flow, HR, supply chains …… and of course, the list goes on.
Whilst larger companies either have their own expertise or can still afford to bring in specialist external advisers, SMEs seldom have the necessary resources available to follow this route. The self-reliance and resilience of the people who lead them are powerful characteristics in normal times, but can leave them dangerously isolated in times of crisis. Most leaders benefit from having a close adviser on whom they can lean privately whilst simultaneously maintaining an outward image of cheerful optimism.
