Avalon adopts an approach that focuses management on its long-term vision, at the same time insisting on a realistic appraisal of the status quo, critical success factors and SWOT analysis, i.e. the starting point for the plan.
The Consultancy helps management to tease out a strategic plan to bridge the gap between the vision and the status quo, and achieve stakeholder aspirations. The plan sets out major strategies, responsibilities and timings, in short ‘who will do what by when’.
Recent assignments include working with the owner-directors of three separate motor retail groups, and a rapidly growing estate-agency chain in the North-west of England, a commercial painting contracting business in the South East, and a highly successful asset-financing company on the Wirral.
Ask Me a Question
Please feel free to contact me using the form to the right. Alternately there are a few FAQ’s below which may help.
Where are you based?
We’re based in Cheshire, England, but it really isn’t relevant because we prefer to go where the client is based. For example, we’ve worked recently in Bathgate, Swansea, Burton-upon-Trent, Basingstoke, and London.
Are You a One Man Band?
No, Avalon is led by its Director Tim Worrall, but it works closely with three experienced associates who complement Tim’s strategic experience with financial and human resources skills.
Is Your Experience Limited to The Motor Sector?
We have extensive operational, non-executive and consultancy experience in motor retail, but we have worked in over 60 sectors. Recent assignments include work in mobile phones, estate agency, financial services and distribution.
Isn't Management Assessment all About Getting a Gut Feel for a Person?
We believe gut feel is important, or put another way, the personal chemistry needs to be right, but it should be the last 5% of a decision, not the first 95%. By adopting profiling and structured interview techniques, supported by referencing as appropriate, we endeavour to put a degree of science into our processes.
