NED/Board Support

We've helped over 100 companies at board level with their governance. Building your business on a solid foundation is critical for sustaining growth and planning for exits.

Growth means governance

Build your business on the right foundations

We understand that governance is not likely to have been at the top of your list when you had a dream to build a company. However, as you grow things become more complex and need a closer level of oversight. Whether it's reviewing cashflow forecasts, evaluating IMs, developing the senior team, or managing risk, growth means governance.

Getting the right advice, having a critical friend, providing access to a network of experts, is all part of the Wellmeadow experience.

What does board support look like?

As business owners ourselves, we understand what the ups and downs of business life feel like. We also know that time and money are scarce resources.  That's why our board support is action-led, jargon free, and time-tested.

Make Better Decisions

Running your business is about making decisions, from the day-to-day, to the strategic.  We help you develop your team and your systems to drive better decision making to help your business grow.  

Get Stuff Done

We are an action-orientated business.  We can help you facilitate your board meetings to ensure they are action-focussed and accountable.  We handle the board meeting admin so you can focus on the issues.

Increase Enterprise Value

When it comes time to exit your business, you want to maximise the value.  To ensure smooth due diligence, we design process to manage risk, finances/funding, HR, plus a load more.

Developing a growth strategy mindset

For businesses looking to get serious about growth

Aligned to good governance is having a great strategy for growth.  Sustainable growth requires a balance between opportunities (demand) and the people/capital/technology required to capitalise on them.

A growth strategy should identify the rate of growth, where the growth will be found (markets), and how the growth will be actioned (internal resources). Ultimately, it will be focussed on revenue (and profit) creation. Looking outwards, we help businesses with the process of identifying target markets, and mapping the buyers' journey (lead generation through to customer conversion and retention). Looking inwards, we help put the systems, technology, and people in place to make things happen. Typically, our board support service helps provide a metronome of progress towards the goal.


Our approach to growth strategy

In our experience, we've seen that companies that set out a deliberate strategy to grow, tend to do so.  By stating intentions and putting in the groundwork, businesses better position themselves to drive growth or take advantage of opportunities when they come along.

Our board support/NED services are based on a fixed-fee monthly retainer.  Growth consultancy support can be tailored your unique requirements.

Vision & Strategy Support

If you're not sure where you're going then you probably won't get there. We can help you see the future and chart a course to get there.

A vision embodies your values, and inspires your future

"Without a vision, the people perish"

This ancient proverb rings true today.  Creating a vision and developing the strategy are the jobs of the leaders.  Most leaders within an SME business context spend less than 5% of their time thinking about the "big picture" stuff.  However, it's a critical part of the role of leadership. 

Over the years we've used the "Collins-Porras" vision model. In brief it looks at who you are as a business (Values & Purpose) and where you want to be (Big Hairy Arse Goals & a Vivid Description of the future). By taking the time to understand these elements of the vision, it becomes easier to articulate and communicate. It also helps guide other aspects of your business particularly areas such as recruitment.

Let's start talking

If vision = destination, then strategy = how we get there...

Once you've got your vision sorted, you need a plan to achieve it.  We are not interested in developing strategic plans that sit in a draw collecting dust. We can help you build an action-focussed plan to get you where you need to be. 

Complexity, simplified...

How does having a clear vision and strategy help my business?

Talk to many business people and the idea of "vision" or "strategy" conjures up images of sitting in a meeting room staring at a flipchart, or sticking post-it notes on the wall.

However, a clear vision and strategy are the foundations that successful businesses are built on.  They guide and direct the decisions that are made such as investment and the type of people you recruit.  Values and purpose (which are a critical part of the vision) influence everything from marketing messages, to how profits are spent.  Taking the time to get it right, pays dividends in the long run.

Outsourced CMO

Want the benefits and expertise of a CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) but don't have the budget/appetite to do so? Why not try an outsourced fractional CMO - all the experience at a fraction of the cost.

Unlock your growth potential

Save up to 75% of the cost of a full-time CMO

Hire a fractional CMO to help accelerate your business growth. It's estimated that c-suite execs spend about 20% of their time adding value.  Why pay for the other 80% especially when you've got all the other costs associated with scaling a business.  

The average CMO salary is circa £150k. Outsourcing the CMO role is a great opportunity for SMEs to access expertise at a fraction of that cost (about 25%).  For scale-ups, it's a great way to de-risk this role until you're ready for a full-time person.

Let's start talking

Do more with less

A fractional CMO combines experience and expertise with a flexible, economical solution for companies looking for marketing leadership. A fractional CMO can help develop your marketing strategy, manage the team, and ensure agreed outputs are achieved and results are delivered.

Reduce Expense

Pay a fraction of the cost of a full-time CMO and get the same expertise and experience.  It also puts this expertise in the reach of many SMEs.

Cross-Client Pollination

Get the benefit of working with experts who have clients in a variety of industries. Work with people who have seen what works elsewhere and can adapt it to your context.

Increased Flexibility

Use a CMO for a day a month, three days a week, or even full-time on a fixed term contract. You're in control of the amount of time, budget, and scope of the projects.

Build with the best...

Why Wellmeadow CMOs chose to use HubSpot.

Outsourced Sales Director

Designed for businesses who don't have a sales director but want help shaping the sales team.

Add extra horsepower to your sales efforts

Drive top-line growth with a part-time sales director

Sales is typically one of the roles that is best done in-house. However, we have seen that as as a business scales, so does the demands on the sales team, particularly at the strategic level.  Using an outsourced sales director allows companies to leverage the extensive experience and expertise of seasoned professionals without the commitment and overhead associated with a full-time executive position.

Whether it's on a part-time or project basis, an outsourced sales director can help shape strategy, set up sales process, and help manage the team.  This can all be achieved with a significant amount of flexibility, giving you expert, strategic sales support at a fraction of the cost of a full-time hire.

The benefits of an external perspective

Whether you're looking to plug a gap whilst you find a full-time person, or if you just need some part-time, support to help you scale, here's some of the benefits of having an experienced, external viewpoint as part of the team.

HubSpot helps manage sales teams

HubSpot Sales Hub challenges the outdated "do more, sell more" strategy.  It provides integrated tools and sales insights to boost productivity and strengthen customer relationships.

As a HubSpot partner, Wellmeadow regularly uses Sales Hub to help businesses manage their sales teams This approach represents a shift towards efficient, insight-driven sales processes.
