Dominic was the CEO of a small Charity working with vulnerable adults and families in the local community.

To deliver a more sustainable impact, Dominic had a vision for creating a new social enterprise, requiring a robust business plan and additional funding to launch.

Despite his passion for the project, Dominic needed to secure the backing of his board of trustees, who were understandably focused on the risks of an new, uncertain venture.

Through facilitated sessions via Zoom, we provided Dominic with business coaching to challenge and test assumptions within his existing strategy, and to build new financial models that enabled scenario planning based on a blended mix of funding.

As a result, Dominic was able to confidently give his Trustee Board a comprehensive business plan, as well as providing a set of tools and a dynamic financial model to update and revise as funding options were put in place.

Though it finally took >18 months from our initial engagement, Dominic finally saw his vision become reality.

Having the flexibility to revise and update his plan was a key element of the journey as goal posts inevitably shifted along the way.
