The philosophy behind Hendson is to enable and accelerate the growth of startups and SMEs through access to a ‘one-stop shop’ for flexible, hands-on management expertise. We work across sectors, industries and geographies.
We are approachable pragmatists who have a wealth of management experience between us to complement your own – we extend your capabilities by adding ours. We can work in advisory and/or hands-on modes, depending on what works best for you.
In a business world where small can mean multinational, where ease in starting up can also mean complexity in growing up, and where focus really matters, we offer a new and flexible approach to collaborative working where the Hendson whole is greater than the sum of the parts. (vision) You use us when you need us on the topics where you need management insights, experience and action. We offer our knowledge, our time and our presence. We take on the hassles you don’t want. We get involved. We are hands-on. We take responsibility to deliver.
Our areas of particular expertise are in sales & business development; financing, funding, compliance and international taxation; organizational effectiveness and development. Through our network we bring in qualified additional expertise when required.
We see ourselves as adaptable, flexible and pragmatic both in the way we work and in the arrangements we have with our clients. We prefer to establish long-term, retainer-based relationships so that we get to know your business and your people and can accompany you on your journey to growth. We are also available for short-term assignments or an ‘opting in and out’ approach depending on the need or circumstance.
Business growth brings many challenges and opportunities. Our goal is to help you in practical ways on both fronts. We can help you to navigate and overcome the challenges and to understand and nurture the opportunities. We let you get on with doing what you do best, running your business.
The idea for Hendson comes from a collective desire to tap into what we have learnt and experienced over multiple years in our own careers for the benefit of others. Our ambition is that we can bring these different perspectives to your business and apply them in ways that make a positive and sustainable contribution and difference to your own ambitions.
