Do you own or manage a business?
Owning or managing a business has always been challenging and this has certainly been true over the past number of years. No matter what the business environment though, even when faced with exactly the same challenges, not all businesses perform the same.
Why is that? Why do some businesses thrive, even in difficult business environments, while others struggle or die?
There is no one answer to this question, but at Casey Business Consulting we are firm believers in the expression ‘if you do the right things consistently, then you have a great chance of succeeding’.
Sounds easy doesn’t it? But of course the challenge is in figuring out the right thing. That is where Casey Business Consulting can support you and your business. Do any of the following challenges sound familiar?
- The business is ready to expand and we need to develop a strategic plan to make sure this is done in a planned way. We need help with the strategic planning process.
- We are planning a major investment in the business but we need a business plan to support our loan application.
- The business is doing OK, but I know it can perform better – I just don’t know what changes are needed or where to start looking.
- Our margins are low and we are not sure how to improve them.
- Cash is always tight and we’re not really in control of it.
- Turnover is low and falling – I need to find new customers but I don’t know where to start.
- I feel like the business is running me, rather than I running the business. We seem to go from one crisis to another.
- The business has lost its way and we’re no longer sure what we are trying to achieve.
- People in the company are doing their own thing and not really working as a team.
If so, then it is time to contact Casey Business Consulting. We can guide you through the strategic planning process and the preparation of robust business plans. Also we can help you identify the key issues affecting performance (or nonperformance) and support you in developing and implementing action plans that will address those challenges successfully.
If any of the above sounds familiar, then take the first step and contact us. An exploratory phone call or e-mail costs nothing and all inquiries are treated with the strictest confidence.

What others say about us
In 2010 CIL Precision appointed Denis as Managing Director of the company. At that juncture the company was experiencing challenging economic issues, similar to many other companies in Ireland. Denis impacted immediately and positively through his commercially focused management style and rounded skill set. During his tenure with CIL Precision he set broad directions and objectives and keenly supported the management in the achievement of same. This led to increases in turnover, profitability, stability and employee morale and generated new business and customers. Denis is articulate and communicates convincingly and fluidly with a down to earth style. He is very much a people person with a business and engineering background. In early 2015, Denis decided to pursue his interest in consultancy but his efforts with CIL will continue to resonate.–Colm Morrissey, Chairman CIL Precision Ltd
We are delighted that Denis applied to join our mentor panel. He is a strong addition to it and has already made a significant difference to several local businesses. The feedback received from clients on Denis has been very positive. He is very knowledgeable and his combination of engineering, management, finance and business development experience makes him an ideal mentor. He is especially well suited to working with companies in the technical, engineering and manufacturing sectors.–Ita Horan, Local Enterprise Office Tipperary
When we approached the local enterprise office for support with establishing Brodeen Engineering they appointed Denis as our mentor. His precision engineering background and business development experience made him a good fit with us. He helped us to prepare a really practical business plan. We were awarded an above average grant from the LEO and the plan definitely helped with this. Denis came back recently for a follow up session. The business is growing quickly at the moment and Denis has given us some very good advice on how to deal with the typical challenges faced by companies at that stage of development. This included how to maintain control of the company’s finances and the importance of preparing detailed cashflow projections. Being ready for those challenges is making a real difference to us. We are delighted with the support Denis gave us. He was enthusiastic about our business and has certainly made a positive contribution to it. We highly recommend Denis as a business mentor.–Damien Grisewood and Joanne Duggan – Co-owners of Brodeen Engineering Ltd
