Winning in Strategy
The aim of strategy is to discover the most advantageous course of action in any given situation. Strategy involves making optimal choices that best leverage an organisation's resources and capabilities, to create an advantageous position relative to its competition. It involves a thorough analysis of your current position, a comprehensive assessment of possible options, and the implementation of the selected course of action. A winning strategy therefore necessarily demands innovatory forward-thinking to achieve tangible and sustainable results.

Luxury - A Complex Sector
The high-end and luxury sector is multi-dimensional, and highly complex; comprised of businesses pursuing the highest standards of quality, exclusivity and distinctiveness. Incumbents customarily seek to deploy the most intricate competitive strategies, often disregarding cost factors, to explore the boundless range of peculiar dimensions that will be sufficiently valued by customers to permit the uppermost price premium.
Financing the Frills
Finance considerations are some of the most important concerns for businesses. Yet surprisingly, the decisions around reporting, budgeting/investment, capital structure/financing, and working capital management, are often routinely ill-managed. The impacts of financial mismanagement are significantly amplified in high-end premium and luxury businesses which are typified by higher costs and higher margins.
Prudence within Opulence
Businesses exist primarily to create value by making optimal financial decisions - whatever industry they are in - through investing in ‘projects’ or ‘products’ where the benefits outweigh the costs. Most business decisions however, relate to complex, future uncertainties. Hence, astute business leaders must seek to acquire the expert tools and knowledge for sound assessments to foster informed judgements and astute financial decisions.
