Why Use Us
As your company grows you, the CEO/MD, are getting busier and busier. Growing pains are taking their toll on you, and you have lost sight of where you are going. You are in need of another pair of hands to work alongside you and help join the dots.
Your managers are just as busy and maybe stuck at an operational level, because they don’t have the capacity, skills, or experience to run the larger company you now have. Your managers need support to work strategically and integrate their work with other departments and the bigger picture.
You would value someone who is separate from your business, yet understands the ins and outs, a trusted third party to support you at Director level. And, someone to drive profit today and into the future across all your departments.

Just a few of the clients that we have helped transform their business.
Managing Director - Brewster Bros.
“Concord has ultimately delivered us a 4-year plan that everyone in our organisation can understand. By everyone, I mean every employee and we are proud to share our plan with our whole team to give them clarity on our goals and how to get there. Involving everyone in the creation of the plan and delegating responsibility for its delivery harnesses the brainpower of the whole business and not just our senior management team.
As a chartered accountant, I loved the finance work. The numbers were inspiring and not just dreamlike figures – they had substance behind them and could be logically backed up when questioned. In fact, our Chairman, who was highly sceptical at first ended up thinking they were too modest! Overall the content of the Concord System has given a much clearer path to achieving our identified stakeholder needs and what the results will be when we deliver them.”
Head Coach - Dundee Rugby Club
“The input from Ewan and Ian has been invaluable and allowed us to accelerate our plans more than we believed was possible. The work has got us focused on the outcomes we need to achieve, helped us to see the synergies across our plan, and has given us real clarity on the future at Dundee Rugby.
This work has given us a more business-like approach at the club. I was blown away by the numbers and the story behind them shows they are realistic and achievable in the years ahead.
The whole process has been incredible and was the shakeup we were needing.”
Managing Director - Easter Greens
“The method of planning backwards excited me from the first time I saw it. When we put it into action it simplified everything and showed me what had to be done (and not done!) to deliver my vision for Easter Greens.
The work we did on the money was fantastic. I can now see what will generate the growth and expansion I am looking for, and how the money will actually happen in the years ahead. This keeps me very focused every day on where we should focus time, money and effort.
Ewan has worked closely with me, my managers and my team to get everyone on board with our one page strategic plan. Everyone can now see what the future looks like, what it means for them, and how they can help deliver it.”
