Holdsworth Advantage has created a service which is everything the SME MD needs to grow.
— Robin Tidd MBA FCMA CGMA MCIM, Co-Founder


Holdsworth Advantage has been a trusted business advisor to companies all over the country for over 30 years. For us, advising businesses usually comprises of two roles. The first is a short analysis to help the business to identify an overarching Business Strategy and/or Marketing Strategy and a ‘high level action plan’ which will succeed. The second role is to promote ongoing improvements, in line with the aims of the owners. The usual requirements of such business

  • More Sales: A growth plan and assistance with implementation of the Marketing Strategy
  • More Profits: Analysis of where (anywhere in the business) there is waste or opportunity to improve performance and therefore results significantly
  • More Control: Ensuring that processes and systems work well enough to allow the MD and his team to be in complete control

With small businesses, expert Financial Control is often a permanent strand of our involvement. As an MD you will have a ‘go to’ for financial management on a week to week basis. Emphasis on each of these roles is shifted according to the current needs
