Paul Strachan is a specialist at the Auditel Business Management Consultancy, whose teams offer their experience to FDs’ and owners to stimulate growth, deal with unusual challenges and solve any problems that might have arisen.
Paul spent 20 years running his own company, which assisted organisations to achieve their goals and choose the most efficient, reliable and cost-effective solutions to do so.
Since 1994, Auditel have helped over 3,000 clients to improve their performance by finding new and better ways of doing things, not just in the private sector but also with public sector organisations.
Last year, Auditel were listed as the UK’s Cost Management Consultants of the Year by the Innovation & Excellence Awards. This is sponsored by the International Business Innovation Association, which recognises businesses that have made transformations for their clients over the past year, setting clear industry trends and advances.
The Auditel proposition is a compelling one. They look to help companies increase efficiency, reduce waste and deliver sustained benefits. These improve both performance and profitability. They excel in differentiating between ‘cost cutting’ and ‘strategic cost management’. Their research with the influential business magazine, Management Today, showed that cost reduction is just part of the process. Businesses need a strategy in place to make sure that those costs are monitored on a regular basis. Without this, prices increase again and your hard work comes to no avail, as costs come flooding back.
Paul says: “Over these 20 years, I have acquired extensive experience with charities, care homes, manufacturing and hotels, and with large, single and multi-site clients. I have provided an efficient, unobtrusive and personal service, which puts the needs of my clients’ first. I build professional relationships. When I take a client on – it is for the ‘long haul’!
