Often business owners are faced with the reality that change needs to occur to survive an ever-changing business landscape however those changes are not always easy to manage when staff and systems have been ingrained in the business organisational structure for many years. Alex has assisted companies in his previous employ with such changes and has worked closely with the business owners to bring those changes on board in a professionally structured process reducing an inevitable financial crisis occurring.
