Start Up Support


Starting a new business is very exciting but is also one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. Without the right business support and planning you can soon find yourself in unfamiliar and uncomfortable situations. According to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months, this is not necessarily because the business concept is wrong, but it can be down to the fact that the unknown challenges of running a business can be too great for those involved. The business idea is the easy part!

We can help you, whether it is with the initial set up challenges and fears or if it is with the plan designed to achieve your goals! Everyone has to start somewhere but there is no need to struggle on your own.

Support for Growth

Is your plan to grow your business?

Have you worked out what that growth looks like?

Is your business strong enough to cope with growth in its current state?

Most businesses want to grow one way or another but in order for that to happen successfully you have to be organised and create a plan, consider your business, your team, the market place and potential future changes. Both you and your business need to be strong enough to cope with the growth. iekos provide business support and can help you review your current business and design a plan for successful, sustainable growth.


Support for Change.

Do you need to make changes in your business?

You could be diversifying your service offering or having change forced upon you by legislation, economic circumstances or the market place . Many businesses struggle with the day to day running of the business and it can feel stagnant. The appetite for change is there but knowhow and business support can be the challenge. If this sounds like you then you could benefit from our change support programme.

In order for your business to survive and grow you need adapt to change. You need to stop, reassess and look at ways in which you can be flexible in order to move forward, tackling any challenges you face along the way. iekos can help you with this process, by having an objective viewpoint, we can help you to identify what needs to change and we are there to support you to find a new way forward.

Whether it is redefining your culture, making team changes or designing and implementing new processes; we can help you. Throughout the process we ensure that you can achieve your business goals, our experience could be vital to help move your business forward.



In order to improve and grow your business you know what the true problems are. Once we know and understand this we know what steps we need to take to eliminate the frustrations and move forward.


What's your WHY? Why did you start your business and what do you want it to look like in the future. Often when we start it is because we are passionate about something but we can loose that passion as we become bogged down in the day to day running of a business. Here we will work to understand your WHY!


Once we know the position and the purpose we can build an action plan and process for you and your team to follow. The most important element of growth is strategy. It defines your goals, helps keep you focused and provides you with a map of how you are going to get there.

“The business had grown rapidly over the last few years but the process weren’t in place to support it, having the support to analyse our current procedures and looking at how we could change has really improved our structure and our overall growth has continued in a much more manageable way.” 

“Working with Hayley has been the game changer for us, we knew we needed to change in order to move forward we just didn’t know how. Having a structured approach to this has really helped get a plan in place that is realistic to follow” 

“We just needed some advice to get on top of our employment issues, not having inhouse HR personnel made it really difficult for us to understand our obligations and what we needed to do. With very little disruption, Iekos helped us to understand the process and got buy in from our team too, thank you”. Gavin Manager

One to one sessions to help with the design and plan for implementation of new internal operational processes to ensure continuity and consistent quality of service and product.

Also, the implementation of full HR policies and procedures to aid and minimise HR issues.

“We had grown successfully over the last 5 years, but we hadn’t adapted what we were doing in order to stay on top of things. We were overwhelmed with the amount of work but just employing more people wasn’t helping. iekos helped us to change how we do things to make the business more streamlined and ultimately gave us a better focus”.
