- Why Choose Bedford and Main?
Why Choose Bedford and Main?
Because we will ask: Why do you need a consultant in the first place?
You might be surprised to know that we are the first ones to ask this question. We want to understand what event transpired or changed that is now motivating your firm to reach out for help. Getting a rock solid understanding of your goals is critical to making the engagement a success.
You may be even more surprised when we propose only a limited engagement, or perhaps that there may even be a better option than using our services. OK, we admit that we are not the greatest salespeople. But we sleep well at night knowing the engagements we enter into add real, sustainable value to our clients and are personally fulfilling for us. The proof- our testimonials can help you see the value we’ve brought to our other clients.
Our clients are typically well-managed, solid firms who don’t like to pass on potential new business. At some point the natural effect of running a tight ship is that when an unexpected opportunity arises, the best of the best still run out of one of the three magic ingredients: Time, Money and Resources.
- Time is a precious commodity. You have other important goals and set deadlines are always already scheduled.
- Money is usually a consideration. You simply don't have the budget to hire a full time senior manager.
- Resources are constantly stretched. You don’t have senior experienced staff with plenty of excess time.
You need a highly qualified resource that has the skills, experience, contacts and background to fit your needs.
You need a resource you can trust. One who will absolutely deliver by providing the full support required to make you successful. See if our approach to consulting is the right answer for your firm.
