We work with you to improve your professional services business across all of the financial, profit driver and practice dimensions.
New Light Strategies was founded in 2011 as a specialised professional services management consultancy focused on providing chief executive officers and senior executives with solutions and insights that drive business performance improvement and deliver strategic, sustainable and profitable growth.
We are particularly skilled at analysing the profit drivers and strategic elements of professional services businesses and using these insights to identify the elements of your business that require improvement and that will produce the highest long-term profit gains.
As well as gaining insights and formulating ideas and solutions, we help you communicate with all stakeholders. The ability to sell ideas and solutions is an essential component of any strategic change.
Our approach is underpinned by extensive executive management experience with a breadth of business skills and experience across operational, strategic, marketing, sales, service delivery and finance functions. In other words, we combine methodology with experience gained in operational executive roles, leading to practical business solutions.
