Miles’ continued dedication and meticulous precision within his work with the shareholders and entrepreneurs of agencies in the creative, marketing and technology industry has once again been recognised by the judges of the Best Business Awards, and the silverware has come home to Waypoint for the third consecutive year.

Miles’ portfolio of improving business performance and helping transform businesses to deliver long-term growth impressed the panel, his unique hands-on approach is something Waypoint as a company is always praised for, our philosophy throughout our entire business is to always work with, not for our clients and Miles leads the way with this.

Board advisory:                  

Miles offers practical and impartial advice on all aspects of business growth. He has a robust and proven track record of running and scaling businesses so is aware of the challenges they experience. Miles has worked with businesses to grow them long-term, whether it’s towards a sale or simply a bigger, better business that’s less dependent on the owners. Miles is able to achieve this by knowing what buyers find attractive, creating differentiation and structure for sustainable growth.

Growth advisory:

Miles’ work develops an inspiring vision of the future. It brings an organisation together for buy-in to a long-term strategy providing a framework for goal setting and challenges the mind-set and limiting paradigms. This has the ability to change behaviours and help improve to achieve goals delivering a clear plan for growth and success.

Driving profitability:

With Miles’ hands-on experience of running and transforming agencies along with many years as operating as a business advisor, it places him in a unique position to be able to improve agency operations and margins. He is able to investigate and find the root causes of under-performance, weak margins, and poor growth. This allows him to identify areas where performance can be improved by applying his years of knowledge and best practice. He has been lucky enough to see the inner workings of many businesses so really does know what works and doesn’t.

Exit planning:

Miles does an in-depth business review on agencies that have aspirations to sell within the next 1-3 years.  This qualitative and quantitative review identifies value drivers that an agency needs to work on in the years before exit to help maximise value. Miles’ hands-on approach and unique mix of advisory skills deliver better results.

We are extremely proud of Miles, and congratulate him on his outstanding win, but don’t just take our word for it….
