Business Review

Nick Shanagher advises the owners of small and medium-sized enterprises on how they can make more money. His clients avoid timewasting and put their focus on retaining good customers. Nick is based in the Thames Valley and accredited by the IBD Business Advice Group. He works with clients UK-wide.

Set and hit targets

Sometimes your personal goal may be clear (for instance, to climb Mount Everest) but you have not worked out how to get there. Other times you are too busy working in your business solving other people’s problems to see the big picture. My one-page gameplan puts the focus on winning customers, maximising cash, getting the most out of your people and cutting timewasting.

Build your value proposition

Everyone likes playing to their strengths. But is your value proposition right for your customers? Do you meet their must-have needs? We use a simple, visual tool to get this right so you can focus on what drives profit and avoid wasted marketing spend.

Get a grip

Good disciplines are needed to make a strategy work. One sign of problems is when you find yourself tackling the same issues over again. Improved communications and goal setting will get your business to the next level of performance. We use simple processes to ensure the key jobs are done by the right people, the key tasks are delegated and the team pulls together.

Who I work with

My clients include successful owner/managers, start-up entrepreneurs who need a second pair of eyes to stay on track, and directors who want to be coached on developing their leadership skills and careers.


I am accredited by the IBD Business Advice Group, which has 200 advisers UK-wide who help thousands of business owners get their enterprises to the next level by providing practical help and advice.
