We work with businesses who are looking for

Non Executive Director/Strategic Advisor

As a Chartered Director (IOD) with a leadership background in staffing and recruitment. I am a capable director combining substantive and effective strategic and operational experience. With board experience in a number of environments we assist businesses looking for commercial/governance and current board development.


Many business no matter what size either face times when their growth is plateauing  or they have ambitious growth plans for the future  but are not sure the best way to drive those plans forward. Aequus Partners focuses on the entire business from top to bottom always measuring against the company objectives to complete its Business Review. Once complete, the results are combined to create a full, integrated growth programme.


Turnaround can mean many things. However, if your business is experiencing poor team, divisional or business performance in your current markets and things are getting tough then  we can help immediately. A significant amount of consultancy work over the years has been turnaround work and we can achieve very quick and significant results, safeguarding the future of your business.


The two big challenges SME businesses face when considering new markets are;

Choosing the right new market. and Creating a 1-2 year strategy including; headcount, investment, risk, opportunity and 60 day action plan.

Both activities take time, investment and the expectation that Owner’s should know everything about their local demographic, competition and what market to diversify into next. We have witnessed in most cases that SME’s are grown either by successful recruiters who recruit in a market of strength or build around the markets owners understand.

Aequus Partners support owners and management to learn new markets from top to bottom in a format which can then be used in developing new revenue streams and headcount growth.

If you currently run your business with passion and integrity but are frustrated by not being able to grow your business as quickly as you would like, and would be willing to try new ideas to generate new results with some external input, contact Aequus Partners today for a no obligation, FREE strategy meeting to discuss your plans and see how we can put you on the path to growth and success.
