We solve operational problems to accelerate aggressive growth within scale ups

If your team is consistently dropping balls and you know it’s costing you, but you don’t know how to truly do accountability, we should talk.

Does this resonate?

  • Ensnared in a cycle of recurring challenges
  • Team veers from the path of accountability
  • Bearing the weight of weaker companions
  • Witnessing a departure of team members or clients
  • Lost amidst the enigma of errors
  • Exhausted all known remedies
  • Adrift without a helm for personal evolution
  • Joy eludes your grasp, slipping like water through fingers

If you’re frustrated and stuck in the weeds, we have the way out. 

Together, we can help you get your time back and your freedom.

Get back on your evolutionary curve, personally and for the business.

We help scale ups move towards achieving their growth and exit targets by resolving their most frustrating operational problems.

We can provide you with a solution within 21 days or less, together with a bespoke strategy to enable you to move forwards.

“The impact is seeing something happening that would have taken us a year, perhaps two, to achieve by ourselves (at the four month point). It’s very different with your support. Looking forward to achieving even more and better results together.”

Amy Bingham of Black & Blue

we feel you, we know you’ve tried everything

The frustration is immense. You begin to think you’re broken, that you just can’t do it. Perhaps there isn’t another way, you just have to suck it up. Maybe you’re just a rubbish manager? Maybe your business wasn’t ever meant to grow?

Hey maybe you’ve tried working with another consultancy or outsource firm and you didn’t get what you wanted, from not convinced all the way to they just didn’t get it. 

Being in that position, when you so want to grow the business, is extremely painful. 

You can taste the impact for you and for your family, and you know what it’ll do for the clients you want to service. 

the great news is that there is always a solution

Even if you’re dealing with 

  • Your team dropping balls despite their training
  • Endless meetings that aren’t productive
  • Regular people issues
  • Your time being pulled into day-to-day challenges
  • A lack of systems and processes
  • Feeling like it’s ultimately all on you

There is a way out and it’s often in the place that you aren’t looking. It’s also usually easier and simpler than you suspect.

All is not lost, it’s very much still to gain. 

Who our process is for… and who it isn’t for

Black & Blue is for business owners who:

  • Are committed to building a saleable asset with an exit plan.You don’t want to be actively working in this business forever. You at least suspect that there is more out there for you. You want to leave a legacy or achieve a sale within the next 5 years. 

  • Desire to grow aggressively.Currently, your business is between £10-50m annual revenue. You’re scaling up and you’re stuck, but you’ll never give up. You don’t want to stay here, or in the next stage. You want to go big. You’re hungry.

  • Are stuck and frustrated. You’ve been spinning wheels with this problem for a while, 1-4 years. You’ve tried to solve it and you can’t. It’s killing morale and stalling growth. You need a solution. 

 Black & Blue is NOT for business owners who:

  • Want to keep things ‘ticking over’ with no desire for growth.

  • Are stuck on things being the same way that they’ve always been. You’re not open to being challenged or to change.

  • Want to work with a consultant purely to prove that their strategy is right. 

If this sounds like you, we want to help. Book your consultation to find out more below.

‘We’d almost missed our boat on all things accountability. When you’re being driven by the founder’s energy, it reaches a certain point and it dies – it can’t be ‘a business’. If I was to be in hospital for 6 months, I would come back and there’s no business.

When you’re doing this kind of work, not everyone can stay. People have left, because of what you’ve done. There are now people who are thriving because of what you’ve done.

We now have a common language. There is nothing more powerful than this.

You have made massive impact.’
