AREAS WE COVER
Is your business growing rapidly but you’re struggling to fulfil orders? This is what’s known as ‘over-trading’ — taking orders but experiencing issues with cash flow. Rapid growth might feel like success, but with your management team stretched and financial pressure growing, these early indications suggest your business is declining.
Have you suffered a loss in market share and reputation? Or maybe your turnover is declining, profits stagnant and you’re experiencing losses for the first time?
Your business might be appearing to be trade successfully but under the surface, things are going wrong – fast.
Are your cashflow problems getting worse? Do you have a persistent overdraft or borrowings that are increasing rapidly? And are you struggling to pay your HMRC tax bills?
Whilst not at a crisis point yet, problems are starting to mount and become more apparent. You may have a constant lack of cash, high interest payments, frequently missing bill payments and tumbling margins.

"Obi is unique combining the skills of a CEO and a CFO. Obi understands businesses and how to make them fly. He is highly intelligent, personable and achieves results. The sort of person that you want on your team."
“He gets things done through his highly collaborative management style and with persuasive leadership. I have seen Obi inspire clinical engagement and gain buy-in from executive peers and divisional leadership teams – often in highly charged or challenging situations. He will take an integrated approach to often conflicting goals by linking finance, quality and operational priorities to deliver sustainable financial, quality and operational improvements.”
“Obi is highly intelligent. He understands how hospitals work and this allows him to deliver results. He will gain buy in and co-operation from clinicians, finance and operations to ensure your goals are achieved. He has a wealth of experience to draw upon in order to transform services, save money and engage staff - I needed a solution rather than a series of quick short-term wins – Obi delivered this, and I would definitely engage him again if the need arose.”
"I worked with Obi on a senior leadership project for an international hospital. It was a pleasure to work with someone who has the same strong work ethic! He was professional, extremely knowledgeable and added immense value to the project."
- Tracy Bedwell, MD of global M&D company
Obi is a person who can make a real difference through his ability to understand the key challenges involved in a turnaround or business improvement situation. He can work with stakeholders to both formulate a turnaround or improvement plan but most importantly to get buy in and actually deliver the plan. He has experience of a wide variety of industries primarily with SME's in the private sector and in the NHS in the public sector.
Stephen Burke, FD and Transformation Specialist
I have worked with Obi on a number of projects and found him to be diligent, well informed, highly experienced and able to follow through and deliver his work. I would certainly recommend him for any consulting engagements.
Jonathan Webb, CEO Clarity Associates Ltd
I have known and worked with Obi for the last ten years on a number of different projects in the NHS. All of these assignments have been complex, challenging and have required clinical, operational and financial changes to be made at pace. What sets Obi apart is his ability to take people with him through these changes and to communicate them clearly and appropriately to those impacted. The client is always disappointed when the work is complete as Obi is a joy to work with and has a passion for ensuring that the changes made are sustainable and management teams and their staff develop their capabilities/capacity along the way.
Iain Alexander - Partner, PwC, Leader Government & Health Industries Restructuring
In these mad times it's great to find someone who can help you out of looming financial trouble so I was delighted to be introduced to Obi who brought clarity to my complex network of businesses. Once things became more settled, I expected to need to find someone else to review the growth and expansion plans for my media business, but again Obi was an invaluable consultant on a whole range of financial and business growth issues. Now pleased to work with him as our outsourced FD on contract.
