“Deciding To Grow is a very insightful planning process to help business owners understand their true drivers and motivations. Accurate thinking translated into truly desirable outcomes.”
Hi, I’m David Peters, a consultant specialising in supporting founders with businesses in the service and technology markets.
I work exclusively with business founders, a privilege that gives me focussed insight into the type of challenges they face as they and their businesses develop together.
Founders use my services when :-
In 1991, I co-founded my first business in IT services.
And I was good at selling and implementing IT systems.
However, I found after a few years that being good at my discipline wasn’t enough.
Unfortunately, making business decisions was very different to helping clients with their IT.
I lost my way and it was a painful experience, emotionally and financially.
Yes it was a learning experience, but it was extremely costly in many ways.
And I soon realised that as a founder I wasn’t alone.
I discovered that it’s very natural for some founders to reach a point where they cannot fix the issues that are stopping them from moving forward.
It’s not a fault, quite the contrary, it’s absolutely understandable.
Founders start businesses because they are great at what they do.
But they don’t have lots of experience in making and implementing business decisions.
And it’s the quality of business decisions that make the difference to their growth and success.
It’s the reason that I created Deciding To Grow, to give founders support in making better business decisions.
So they don’t have to go through the pain I did.
Deciding To Grow has helped founders to achieve a range of outcomes; refreshing energy and impetus, stimulating growth, and, when exiting, an optimised business sale.
I’ve always enjoyed great satisfaction when working with founders.
They have a story to tell about what got them fired up and how they have made it to where they are now.
They go for their dreams in spite of the challenges to be faced.
I’m a multiple founder too.
Prospective clients want to know what I can bring to helping them.
It’s a combination of my experience (successful and not so successful), relevance, and empathy, backed with a strong track record of positive outcomes using a proven framework.
Here’s some recent examples of helping founders to fix issues and get growing again.
It’s good to remember that each business is unique, as are founder circumstances.
Deciding To Grow is a framework with the flexibility to support founders with various issues to fix.
My passion is seeing a founder who has become stuck revitalise their world and their business.
It brings me great fulfilment but most importantly, for the founder, it brings to life their chosen future.
Deciding To Grow
Business founders don’t get stuck because they are not good at what they do. It’s because they find making quality business decisions increasingly difficult over time.
