Our Services

In addition to our own portfolio of initiatives and projects, we provide consultancy, facilitation, and development services for third party customers. We undertake these projects on a fee-paid basis, equity-share basis, or profit-share basis depending on the nature and complexity of the project.

 

Strategic planning

We help companies and organisations develop their plans, be that for general strategic growth, business planning, market evaluation, or raising company finance. We have had experience of starting, growing and exiting from businesses, and so understand some of what it takes in practice to get over these hurdles.  We also have an extensive network of experts that we can draw on to help you further where we may fall short.

We are as happy to chat over a coffee and discuss your aspirations as we are to roll-up our sleeves, research the market, and work closely with you on the execution of a project.  As such we can provide reports based on desk-research, can spend time in your organisation providing some independent advice or guidance, or we can be contracted with specific tasks to develop your business or manage your projects. Contact us for more details and to outline your particular requirements.

 

Business and Technology Roadmapping

We provide a structured and methodical workshop-based programme to enable a company or organization to brainstorm and roadmap its future development. This usually takes place over a 2-4 week period in half-day sessions, either on your site, at the Wyche Innovation Centre, or at some other venue of convenience. This is a great way to obtain management and staff alignment on the future direction of both small and large companies, and we can make the process as formal or informal as you like so as to fit in with you organisation's ethos.

 

Helping you back to work or to start a new business

One of our passions is to see people working in an environment and a job that they enjoy; this not only benefits the economy and improves the community, but it provides satisfaction and a sense of purpose for the individual.  

We particularly understand that it can be difficult to return to the workplace after time away or because of a redundancy. Time off to raise children, especially, can develop many of your organisational and managerial skills whilst ironically reducing your self-confidence and ability to recognise your valuable skills. Many people reach the stage when they suspect they need something more than home and children, but deciding what to do and how is extremely difficult and fraught with emotional issues

Key IQ offers an independent and non-judgmental service. We will listen, question, and help you make a decision about returning to work, staying at home a little longer, or doing something else. We can highlight your range of options, help you identify your marketable skills, work with you on a CV and assist you in finding part-time roles to ease you back into the rat race again. We can also help you explore the options of you becoming a sole trader and entrepreneur.
