Customer & Growth Strategy
What's worked in the past often doesn't work in the future. Much like individuals, companies need to have a growth mindset and that means re-visiting and re-inventing their beliefs about where future growth will come from.
The right customer-centric Growth Strategy can give a company every chance to delight their customers, create a positive viral coefficient and get "hockey-stick" traction.
Advisory & NED
What do you do when a company has accelerated beyond the direct experience and capabilities of its leadership team?
A good Advisor or NED (Non-executive Director) will help leaders see the "forest from the trees" and navigate the challenges they face as they steer their company in to the future.
Coaching & Mentoring
Be it a new founding team or seasoned leader, life at the top can be tough.
Entrepreneurship is incredibly challenging and takes its toll in many ways. Coaches & Mentors help sustain leaders and support them through what is often an incredible but daunting journey.
Having someone to speak to who's "been there and done that" has a value that is immeasurable.
"I first met Elie when I was running propositions/innovation globally for Aviva. It was very quickly clear that he had a ton of merit - taking complex questions and distilling them into simple bite-sized components without fanfare. When I subsequently co-founded a deep learning startup, he was one of the first people I thought to ask for advice. Elie has no lack of technical understanding, but what really set his advice apart is his ability to see wider/bigger patterns in the space where my startup is competing. His advice was invaluable and revealed actionable points that I would not have discovered quickly on my own."
Jeff Bradley, CEO, Phrasia
"Having Elie as an advisor and sounding board while growing and scaling Luana helped keep me on even keel and gave me great confidence when making pivotal decisions. Elie helped me navigate the challenges of growing the start-up, all the way through to deal structuring and acquisition. Elie brings incredible value and unique insights."
Varant Bomoushakian, ex-CEO, Luana
"Elie helped us to accelerate the success of a client we had been working with for some time. He guided the client’s leadership team in identifying and addressing key vulnerabilities in its business and value proposition, in achieving product market fit and in reaching an addressable market far larger than they had been targeting, previously."
