A whole lot of planning might make sound and look good, but unless you’re implementing it’s almost wasted.   On the other hand if you start implementing and doing lots of activity but haven’t done any planning it can be leading you in the wrong direction and the results can be disastrous.

So why the name PlanA?   Well simply we believe if you develop the right plan from the start – PlanA – there shouldn’t be any need for PlanB or even PlanC.

Too often people are so worried about contingencies and what they’ll do if things don’t go according to plan they fail to recognise if they spent a bit of time in planning they’d achieve a whole lot more.

Do you ever feel that you suffer from ‘busy sickness’ – that you’re just so busy ‘doing’ that you don’t seem to achieve anything?

PlanA has developed a number of strategies for the business owner that will make sure they are working in key areas and are getting the results they deserve.

These strategies have been developed through years of practical experience in business.

Sectors that John has assisted businesses in are:

  • Construction
  • Wholesale Trade
  • Retail Trade
  • Online
  • Insurance Services
  • Real Estate Services
  • Professional and Technical Services
  • Transport
  • Administrative and Support Services
  • Manufacturing
  • Health
  • Not for Profit

If we can help you in any way don’t hesitate to contact us.
