Growth Trend is a Toronto-based Management Consulting firm, founded in 1990 by Ken Steven. We specialize in the development of custom business growth strategies for entrepreneurs / owners of small to mid-size companies.
As an added bonus, if our clients have become enslaved by the business they created, we show them how to break free from the day-to-day operations so they can start enjoying their success.
We take clients who think they've maxed out their growth potential and show them how to skyrocket their sales and profits.
We take clients on the brink of bankruptcy, that other consultants have given up on, and reinvent their business to keep them alive and help them thrive.
Our ingoing objective is always to double the current sales and profits of our clients. Although this may seem like an unrealistic growth target, it is actually the secret to our success. It forces us to do a strategic rethink about each client's business rather than doing the typical tactical tweaking of advertising and promotion activities.
In our experience tactical tweaking generates modest growth at best and quite often that growth is not sustainable. But strategic reinvention can generate explosive sales and profit increases because you're no longer constrained by looking at the business for what it is. Instead it opens up your mind to consider all the possibilities for what the business could become.
Unlike most consultants, we won't just present you with a 500-page report on how to build your business and wish you good luck. We'll stick around and work with you and your team to make sure that our recommended solutions are successfully implemented.
Here are just two of our consulting success stories to illustrate the point:
A client in the manufacturing sector had lost more than $100 million in the three-year period prior to working with us. They had only 6 months of cash left to keep the doors open and keep 700 people employed. We had them cash neutral in 5 months, and helped them generate a $14 million profit in the following fiscal year.
Annual revenue for a high-tech manufacturer had plateued at $6 million, so they asked for our help. We worked with them for two years to replace an engineering-driven culture with a marketiing-driven culture that allowed them to almost triple their revenue.
Let's talk about growing your business.
