Business Development Consultant
Business success is providing a product or service that solves consumer problems – and making a profit.
Business success is reaching the people you can help the most, meaning providing people with a product or service that solves their problems – and making a profit after salaries and expenses.
As markets, competition, industry and technology changes, mergers, acquisitions and divestitures are just a few factors to master in order to drive on-going business success.
Most business leaders understand that profit, success and continued growth are all achieved through an intelligent, articulate and well-crafted business strategy.
Differentiation is the essence of strategy – the prime source of competitive advantage
The essence of a business model therefore, is that it defines the manner by which an organisation identifies its clients’ needs and wants, meets those needs, delivers value to those clients in the way they want it, entices them to pay for that value, and converts those payments to profits.
Achieving bottom line organisational goals, will thus depend on how well organisations know the needs and wants of their stakeholders, investors and target markets, and how efficiently they can deliver upon those needs and wants with productive employees who are really inspired to deliver their best.
It’s about building capacity, developing skills and best practices, instilling authentic business values, beliefs and principles – and finding insights on which to build future excellence, legacy, profit and sustainability.

Henry Ford once said, “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” There’s a marketing truism nuzzled into that statement— that while good businesses simply meet a need, great businesses exceed expectations. Like Ford, innovative brands deliver their horsepower in new and surprising ways, and they use creative strategies to do it.
So how can brands push the envelope without crossing a line? How can they gain attention without losing customers and sacrificing their brand image in the process?
With a well-thought out and planned brand strategy. A brand strategy is a long-term plan for the development of a successful brand in order to achieve specific goals. A well-defined and executed brand strategy affects all aspects of a business and is directly connected to consumer needs, emotions, and competitive environments.
A successful strategy also heightens brand equity (the amount of money customers are willing to pay for the value your brand provides). In addition to generating revenue, brand equity makes your company itself more valuable over the long term.
RD incorporates all the essential components of a comprehensive brand strategy that will help grow your business in all aspects, especially profits, and be set on a path of sustainable development to remain so
