It was a pleasant surprise to receive a newsletter from a Management Consultant I contacted a long time ago to propose an alliance, which recommended forgetting about prospecting and establishing alliances instead. He must have liked my idea, huh? lol
I’ve replied to that newsletter in the hope of re-igniting that conversation, and it will certainly be interesting to see how far we get this time!
But, that experience made me think I probably should explore those kinds of possibilities with others, and so I’m putting the call out there to see if there is anyone who sees the benefit of teaming up, and is prepared to give it a go!
Please get in touch if you are!

I agree with you – strategic alliances can work however, there needs to be mutual benefit and common goals for the partnership to work. I am currently working on one at the moment and it seems to be going well.
Can you please tell me what your business is and also what you looking for with your alliance?

I am a VBA developer and Business Consultant. I build mainly desktop based applications for specific tasks and functions which aren’t available off the shelf. I’ve also extended functionality to the web in some cases by using PHP & MySQL, but my interest is predominantly to increase efficiency and productivity, while reducing cost for SMEs.
I have developed a four step business optimisation program (you’ll find details at http://www.calcul8ors.com.au/FourStep.html), which I think could be successfully promoted by Management Consultants, Accountants and Bookkeepers to their clients as an additional offering. This may also give them a bit of an edge over their competition as well. You never know.

Yes, it is a bit old, but also testimony to Flying Solo’s timelessness, given old posts can still be useful long after they’ve been forgotten, don’t you think?
I have a positive story to tell! Since I wrote the first post to this thread, another Management Consultant has been in touch, and together we’ve now completed two fairly major projects for two fairly major organisations! This proves beyond any doubt that alliances of this nature are definitely worth pursuing!
So, I am definitely interested in discussing this further with you Shelly. In a nutshell, the way I see it working is that I can help you extend the breadth of services you offer your clients, by helping them make their business more efficient and therefore profitable. There are lots of possibilities and potential arrangements, so please let me know your preferences and ideas, and lets see if there are ways we can work together to help each other!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Shail, i looked at your website the idea looks interesting. In my work, I at least need to partner with an accountant and a solicitor- so working jointly when there is mutual benefit is good.

I’ve recently changed servers and know there are certain parts of my website that aren’t working properly, so I apologise if you ran into any of them. I haven’t had a chance to fix them all yet, but will soon.
I actually think our businesses are well placed to combine and provide a service that noone else offers, that I know of.
Very happy to discuss this further.
