About us

Running a business is hard work. There are many factors that can impact business performance and conditions can change quickly. The problem facing companies is that accurately identifying the key issues and accepting their main weaknesses - before it’s too late - can be a serious challenge and one that many business leaders simply aren’t prepared to meet. This is where we come in.

Culture is key

We know from experience that business performance depends on people and the decisions they make, rather than because of product, process or market conditions. If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that culture and leadership are key to success and although the personal focus can make these issues tough to tackle, recognising them and embracing change is vital. Now is the time to be honest with yourself and accept that these realities simply cannot be ignored.

Our approach

Vast experience of owning and running companies through both good and troubled times has shaped our unique process for getting businesses back on track.

So, how can we help you?

  • Short term analysis – Addressing any financial and confidence issues with sources of working capital, customers, suppliers and staff. Often when a company is under pressure things can get manic. The objective is to calm everything down and give everyone time to think. Importantly our aim will be to achieve this without additional borrowing.
  • Forward planning – Successful companies focus on customer intimacy, operational efficiency or product excellence. World leading companies are good at all three. Axiom will work with you to build a long-term plan focused on developing these key attributes.
  • Maintaining momentum – The seeds of failure are sown during success. An Axiom review will highlight the areas that need addressing to ensure that the good times continue.
  • More than just financials - We are not insolvency practitioners, we are so much more than that. We help businesses in all aspects of their performance, not just financial issues. From restructuring individual departments in large corporations, to helping SMEs identify and solve the biggest challenges holding them back, we are focused on helping businesses grow and prosper.
  • Investment - We offer straight investment either from Axiom or one of our associates and are happy to enter risk reward arrangements to reduce costs for a business that is already financially stretched.

We will always act with honesty and integrity and will never pull our punches. We ask and expect that you will act in the same manner.
