Reflecting on 2023: Navigating Business Challenges and Achieving Growth

As we say goodbye to 2023, it’s crucial to recognise the numerous challenges businesses encountered and the resilience they demonstrated in overcoming them. Throughout the year, we observed a landscape marked by the pursuit of skilled professionals, expansion dilemmas, and the exploration of new markets.

The Challenge of Talent Sourcing and Skill Expansion

Businesses grappled with the task of finding skilled professionals and expanding capabilities. This necessitated a paradigm shift in how we view capacity, compelling organisations to strategically manage skills and resources across different locations.

Business Development Endeavours and Market Expansion

The desire to expand client bases and venture into new markets was evident. However, the journey was often hindered by underdeveloped business plans or a lack of expertise. Consequently, many businesses found themselves at a crossroads, seeking guidance on navigating these uncharted territories.

Strategic Partnerships for Operational Excellence

Our experiences in 2023 led us to collaborate closely with businesses seeking an external, unbiased perspective on their operations and strategies. Through this collaborative approach, we identified opportunities for reorganisation, adjustments to business models, growth initiatives, and even potential sales or management succession plans.

Guiding Businesses Towards Success

At CMG Consulta, our commitment to empowering businesses to envision the future and achieve growth has remained steadfast. In 2023, we played an instrumental role in guiding companies through multi-year journeys, preparing them for successful sales, investment, or growth.
