Finding New Opportunities to Scale Your Business


As a business owner and Community Partner, scaling your business requires identifying and leveraging new opportunities. This involves not just expanding your client base, but also optimising your operations, refining service delivery and fostering a robust community.


In this post, we’ll explore how you can find and capitalise on new opportunities through consulting projects, collaborations and recruitment. We’ll also discuss how the Community Partners model supports sophisticated partnerships, the required infrastructure, automation and governance, underpinned a no-nonsense approach to solving business problems.


Seeking New Consulting Projects


Consulting projects can be a significant growth driver for your business. Once you've joined Community Partners, here's how to identify and secure new consulting opportunities:


  1. Market Research - Conduct thorough market research to identify emerging trends and sectors with high demand for consulting services. Understanding industry pain points can help tailor your offerings to meet specific needs.

  2. Leverage Existing Clients - Reach out to your current clients and top relationships for additional project opportunities. Satisfied clients are often willing to engage in further collaborations and can provide referrals. The Community Partners toolkit provides the full roadmap and effective methodology to make this happen.

  3. Thought Leadership - Position yourself as a thought leader in your industry by publishing articles, joining and conducting webinars and speaking at conferences. This visibility can attract new clients seeking expert guidance.


Exploring Our Collaborations


Collaborations can open up new revenue streams and enhance your service offerings. Consider these strategies for effective collaboration within the Community Partners group:


  1. Strategic Partnerships - Form partnerships with complementary businesses. For instance, if you specialise in digital transformation, collaborate with a cybersecurity firm to offer comprehensive solutions. Think about the project interdependencies, this is where the Community Partners model comes to life.

  2. Joint Ventures - The very DNA of our community! Engage in joint ventures to tackle larger projects that would be challenging to handle alone. Pooling our resources and expertise can lead to successful outcomes and increased market reach.

  3. Community Involvement - Participate actively within the Community Partners Group. This platform will lead to collaborative opportunities and knowledge sharing.


Expanding Through Recruitment


Recruiting the right talent is crucial for both scaling your business and winning more projects. Here's how to approach recruitment strategically:


  1. Identify Skill Gaps - Assess your current team's skills and identify gaps that need to be filled to support your growth objectives. Look for candidates with expertise in high-demand areas. Consider the interdependencies of a project and offer a wider, more holistic service to your clients with Community Partners.

  2. Utilise The Global SME Network - Community Partners has significant experience in finding experts quickly for key hires or transformation programmes. Whether its for ad-hoc advisory engagements, consulting projects, interim management and senior permanent, executive hires; by becoming a Community Partner you have full access to the community of trusted associates. This then gives you the ability to offer these extensive recruitment services and resources to your own clients.

  3. Cultural Fit - Ensure that new hires and SMEs align with your company culture and values. A cohesive team is more productive and can drive your business forward effectively. It's an important part of the Community Partners due diligence framework; after all, the cultural fit to a programme or end-client is critical to success.


The Community Partners Model


With some Partners exceeding their first £m revenue milestone in just 7 months (from absolutely zero), our model is a powerful approach to scaling your business. With a portfolio of executive business leaders who have done it before (you can find the CP team here); our proven model is supported by effective infrastructure, automation and additional horse-power that our team provides, which inherently makes all the difference.


  1. Sophisticated Collaboration - Utilise our network of partners to access diverse expertise and resources. This model supports collaborative problem-solving and innovative solutions tailored to client needs. Our community of business leaders frequently co-design and co-deliver great programmes of work.

  2. Appropriate Infrastructure and Governance - Implement robust infrastructure and our governance frameworks to ensure your operations are scalable, secure and compliant with industry standards. This supports efficient operations so you can get on with other things.

  3. No-Nonsense Approach - Maintain a straightforward approach to solving client's problems, focusing on practical, actionable solutions. Prioritise clear communication and effective execution to build client trust and satisfaction.


In summary, if you answer YES to any of the following, we should talk:


  • Do you frequently turn work away due to your own limited capacity?

  • Are you ever asked for recommendations for a certain project need or permanent recruitment vacancy?

  • Do you regularly recruit your own project teams when running a transformation programme?

  • Have you always wanted to grow your consultancy business?

  • Would you like to join Community Partners to understand how to increase your income revenues?
