The business environment is operating at a faster pace than ever before.

The disruptive impact of technology and the shift to a more fully digital world has fundamentally altered the way that companies approach how they finance, grow, and ultimately exit their businesses. Navigating this landscape requires a clear strategy for achieving growth and a focused plan to execute it, in order to fully realize the value from the business.

How Grant Thornton can help 

Our team will collaborate with you at board level to help you make better, more rigorous and quantified business decisions in pursuit of your strategic objectives.

We can share our insight with you on all aspects of your growth strategy. Our market and commercial due diligence offerings can help you assess the market opportunity, how your business compares with your peers and against benchmarks, as well as analyse potential acquisitions to enhance your growth trajectory. 

In addition to helping you formulate the overall strategy our comprehensive service offering provides the full range of support needed to execute it, including debt advisory, corporate finance advisory and operations advisory. 

The breadth of our offering is a clear advantage, but we also bring depth of experience. Our practitioners have industry and banking backgrounds allowing them to bring real world insight to strategic questions. 

In a relatively low growth domestic market, the right strategic choice often involves expanding into new geographic areas. Here the strength and depth of Grant Thornton’s international network provides you with a clear edge in assessing new markets overseas. 

We can offer you advice and guidance on a range of strategic issues including: 

  • Helping shareholders and management assess their strategic growth, value creation and realisation options
  • Creating value through M&A
  • Assessing alternative financing solutions to deliver strategic objectives
  • Market and competitor KPI benchmarking
  • Assessing preparation and readiness for an exit 

We believe it is vitally important to be able to think clearly about your strategic ambitions and objectives free from the distractions of day-to-day operational demands. Grant Thornton’s CEO Room provides a critical thinking space for business leaders, offering a stimulating and interactive space for one-to-one discussions, where you can work on your key strategic, financial and leadership issues. Visit the CEO room for your initial free session.
