Business Planning

The top reasons companies underperform is they lack the foresight and discipline to develop, implement and monitor their business. Much of this starts with a plan as “without a plan, all roads lead nowhere.” But not all plans will get you where you want to be and not all parts of the business need a plan. The key is to be focused, use the right metrics to monitor progress and properly consider the organization’s culture and capabilities. And make the necessary corrections when the results do not meet the company’s goals or objectives. The Salontai Advisory Group’s business planning services include:

-  Geographic, Service Offering and Client Sector Market Assessment

-  Marketing, Business Development and Sales Approach

-  Annual Business Plan Development

-  Organizational and Individual Goal-Setting Systems

-  Best Practices for Measuring Results

What Clients Say

"Thank you" seems so totally inadequate for your absolutely masterful Fundamentals of Professional Practice Laureate's presentation. The content was completely spot on, and the way in which you organized it was inspiring...but the delivery was even better: relaxed, humorous, serious, approachable. Easily half of the 100 "rising stars" of the 40 firms represented congratulated me for bringing you in to speak!

Keynote presentation in Denver, CO

"I have worked with many CEO's in my 30 year career and Gerry is without question one of the best. Gerry has the unique ability to quickly assess a financial situation good or bad. Some call it a gut instinct, but as a CFO I know Gerry knows the numbers beyond his gut and what it takes to keep a business humming along! Gerry has kept me on my toes and will do the same with any other CFO or CEO that has the opportunity to share in his knowledge."

John Pilkington
Former CFO, Kleinfelder

"Gerry Salontai has been very helpful to Freese and Nichols in his role as an advisory board member. He has a very straightforward approach and has brought a unique perspective to our firm on a variety of topics. I appreciate the way he shares his experience-providing an opinion with several possible options to help resolve an issue. He uses this approach like a master."

“Gerry Salontai was VHB’s first outside board member.  He came to us as a former CEO with experience leading a firm from annual revenues of $100M to $300M – exactly what we were planning to do!  Gerry brings deep industry knowledge and a unique style that is both challenging and insightful.  Gerry is the real deal and with his help VHB is well along the way to its goal increasing revenues by $80M during his tenure.”
