Sustainable business consulting that moves you closer to your goals

A small business consultant will never know as much about your business as you do, but… That’s actually a good thing.

When you work in and on your business, you’re close to the smaller issues. So, it’s hard to maintain a big-picture perspective.

You can lose sight of your long-term vision and goals – and lose clarity about your direction.

A business consultant can deliver an objective assessment of your situation. Then draw on relevant experience to guide you towards possible solutions.

During my 11+ years as a GM of a successful small business, I had fingers in dozens of different pies

Which means – working with me gives you access to the experience and expertise of a range of specialised small business consultants, except… You only deal with (and invest in) one person – me.

You can rely on me to guide, support and challenge you – with clear, honest advice that moves you towards your goals.

The Volta Consulting difference

Volta Consulting is bridging the gap between profit and purpose to improve the world – one small business at a time.

There’s been a long-held belief that it’s up to big business or government bodies to fix problems, create social impact and drive change. 

As Volta’s founder, I am shaking up the status quo. 

Many small business owners understand they have the power to create a positive impact on the community or environment in which they operate. But they’re not sure what to do, or how to get started – they’re seeking guidance. I  launched Volta Consulting to help with that.’

Volta offers new perspectives and practical strategies to build profitable small businesses that drive social change. AND create a positive impact in the world.
