Whereas Axiom-e focuses on working with clients over a period of time, The Financial Doctor seeks to operate in a similar way to medical doctors and to undertake specific one-off work for clients ("patients") who for various reasons are not as healthy as they might be.
The work typically involves focused remedial work on under-performing enterprises for varying lengths of time.(Such work is often undertaken by what has come to be known as a Company Doctor or Business Doctor.)
Helping the patient
Using the well-established axiom-evaluation service and other specially designed tools, The Financial Doctor seeks to:
- review and assess the financial health of the client
- diagnose the underlying problems which have resulted in the client's ill-health
- prescribe remedies for the condition via a detailed report
Taking the medicine
Having discussed the options with the "patient", The Financial Doctor is usually asked to:
"Surgical work" typically involves Axiom-e working over a period of time to undertake the action necessary to turn the business round.
- undertake "surgery" leading to the client's recovery and good health
In a number of cases, the "surgery" could well result in Axiom-e being appointed as a consultant to - or non-executive director of - the client to help ensure that the client stays on the right track.
Visiting the Doctor early enough will result in a successful recovery. Research though shows that the later a patient waits to see the Doctor, the more difficult it is to make a complete recovery!
|Under the auspices of the Turnaround Interim Manager Network, axiom-e can provide support to directors and business owners at a time of need across a range of business functions.
If corrective action is not desired or warranted, The Financial Doctor will help to minimise the on-going impact on the client company or their directors and shareholders by introducing them to other specialists advisors such as liquidators/administrators and lawyers.
To ensure that the corrective action remains successful, a follow-up review will be undertaken at a suitable future date.
Making an Appointment

To arrange to see The Financial Doctor, please contact him. Although The Financial Doctor will quote a fixed fee for his services before undertaking any work, the initial consultation is free.
We look forward to helping you.
