Business Consultancy – Tailored To Your Needs

A common misconception is that consultancy services are exclusively the reserve of “big business”. The truth in reality is that the spread of consultancy usage is fairly linear across all sectors and business sizes.

That’s why we understand that every business is different, and so must the solutions that we offer to our clients be. At Akcela, we understand that the reasons for hiring a business change consultant are varied too. One of the easiest mistakes to make is to think that the simplest thing to do is to struggle through without engaging external support. We offer a wide range of management consultant services, but we would always suggest to any company unsure if a management consultant can help, to take advantage of our free sixty minute consultative conversation. This can be either face to face at the University of East Anglias Enterprise Centre in Norwich, Norfolk. At your site, or through a remote business meeting via Zoom or Microsoft Teams.

Results Driven

We are a results driven consultancy, because ultimately, that is why our clients choose to work with us. The process and the people can be labelled in many ways. Change Management, Management Consultant, Business Consultant. For us, that isn’t what is important. What matters to us, are that the results meet expectations.
