Adelina Lalic has worked with business owners for over 20 years in delivering strategic advice to early stage businesses, more established businesses seeking next-level growth opportunities and to those wanting to improve their overall performance and profitability.
Doug Webber has spent a career spanning over 30 years with new and emerging businesses and those recognising a need for “renovation”. His experience as a practising adviser brings deep knowledge of what’s needed to operate profitably, effectively and with a clear focus on client outcomes.
BusinessBlades services focus on helping business understand their “current state” and what needs to be done to achieve short, medium and longer term business objectives. Strategic consulting is at the core, aided by a range of tailorable tools and processes including the BusinessBlades Analyser, Pricing and Capacity methodology, business and strategic marketing toolkits.
We also recognise that people are key in the success of any business and therefore provide specific, practical consulting on people management and development issues.
