“Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” Confucius once said. Confucius had obviously never had to deal with mountains of back office legal and administrative documents, government jargon or constant changes in legislation…
The chances are that you started your business out of a passion and brilliance for what you do. The chances are that you didn’t start it to be filling in endless forms and trying to understand ridiculous acronyms, UK legislation or GDPR compliance. But I did. And I’m here to help you!
I have worked with and helped hundreds of small organisations across the voluntary and private sectors for nearly 20 years. I am an experienced troubleshooter, jargon translator, problem solver, volunteer manager, and trainer. I am an expert in crisis management, conflict control, health and safety, GDPR and long term sustainability. I can also guide you through the maze of setting up an organisation, governance, data protection, safeguarding, office systems, volunteer recruitment and management, charity registration and project development. And that’s just for starters.
I am a fixer. If I can’t do it for you, I definitely know somebody who can. The things that give you a headache, are the things that make me tick. I love unscrambling the boring, complicated and confusing bits that you just don’t have time for.
I ensure that organisations are up to date, co-ordinated, strategic, viable and legal. I can cross the i’s and dot the t’s and untangle everything in-between. I provide a fresh set of eyes, and am an expert in identifying current and potential complications, issues and obstacles and helping solve them. I can help you worry less about the dull and complicated things – I do the tricky stuff so you don’t have to. I can train your staff and brief your organisation, I can even write handbooks!
My aim is to ensure you have the completed paperwork, information, tools and structure you need to run smoothly and effectively. The result? A well oiled machine, a paperless office and a wealth of in-house knowledge. You can concentrate on delivering the important stuff: your services and products. I can susify the rest.
“Susi is the antidote to the modern business consultant. Kind, enthusiastic and intelligent people, her enthusiasm and passion for dealing with the vital, but tedious, things that come up when running a small business is both bewildering (to me!) and amazing. Susi strips away the BS and simplifies the jargon. Without her, I would probably still be sat with my head in my hands, wondering where to start”
