Realisation through Collaboration

Providing specialist consultancy, strategy, and services

to help you realise your business potential

What we do

Every business faces challenges to overcome and every business growth cycle needs to be tested on a regular basis.

Working in partnership, Christie Consultants Scotland ensures you never have to face those challenges alone. We provide business review and strategy advice for our clients, as well as business to business services based on Christie’s ACT NOW review model.

Your challenges may include…

  • succession planning

  • a need to consider finance

  • marketing support

  • logistics

  • additional staff resource

  • exit planning

  • HR needs

  • or acquisition

Whatever is holding back your business growth, our team of specialists can assist with advice and source the best-in-class professional services for your needs.

Collaboration is an essential ingredient for all successful businesses, now more than ever, as we exit COVID. All enterprises need to be considering their future plans and asking themselves “What’s next?”

ACT NOW is a simple and effective way to take a step back from the daily operations and take a strategic overview of your business, to move forward.

The Team

All our consultants have owned their own businesses, experiencing the challenges that you as a business owner continue to face. Our experience is your experience.

We understand that growing a business can be a lonely place for the sole trader, partnership or young company and every bit as testing for a seasoned Board of Directors needing that additional set of eyes to look at vision planning. Our eyes are your eyes.

Having a team of specialists in their field behind you, to collaborate with on-demand is a massive advantage for any business.  Our team is YOUR team.
