Burley White & Co
Business Advisors | Boutique | Experienced
We work with entrepreneurs, owners and directors in the execution of their strategy and business plans. We specialise in translating strategy into action, with a focus on turnaround situations and later stage start-ups.
Our mission is to help business owners and executives clarify their strategies and effectively execute their plans.
What we do
Strategy & Execution
We assist in the formulation and execution of your business strategy and plans.
We do this as an adviser, or in an interim C-suite capacity.
Director & Advisory Boards
Stuart White also fulfils both director and advisory board member roles.
M&A readiness & execution
We assist businesses to be 'investment ready' in preparation for securing equity and debt capital. This includes assistance with the preparation of information memorandums and business plans.
We assist in the operational execution of M&A opportunities and divestments.
Negotiation | Facilitation | Mediation
We negotiate, facilitate & mediate, or simply advise in relation to commercial disputes involving customers, suppliers, financiers, directors and even shareholders.
This includes securing outcomes for Release Deeds, MOUs, Heads of Agreements and Shareholder Agreements.
We believe that every challenge also represents an opportunity. We actively seek to identify those opportunities while navigating through the challenges.
We believe that a strategy without a plan for execution is merely a hope. So we make it our priority to turn strategies into actionable plans.
There is never just one element limiting peak performance, but it invariably revolves around having the right team of people. Teamwork is at the core of our approach.
Negotiation is both an art form and a science. We believe that commercial negotiations secure superior 'win-win' outcomes when combined with a facilitation approach.
