Dunnington Consulting helps business owners build value today with an eye toward optimizing value and readiness for transition. We think in terms of what is high value now, and will be highly valued going forward – as a consulting partner for sustainable results, competitiveness, and citizenship – near term and end game.

We bring actionable ideas and tools you need, don’t have, and don’t have time to invent. We help you accelerate, succeed and get out of your way. Our mission is to help you achieve a large, step-up value gain for you…10x ish. The key is to do the most valuable things, the right way.

We know a lot of business owners in their 50s, 60s, 70s who haven’t faced the future yet. There is an inevitable transition ahead. We can help by addressing three questions:

  • Do you know the actual value of your business?
  • Have you built a business that has transferable value and owner independence?
  • What can you do today to ensure that your business has value in the future?

Our three consulting services reflect 30 years of experience helping business owners address these.

  1. VITAL SIGNS is the core value building service that starts where you are – what your business is worth today – looks to what it could be worth and the key (ROI-ranked) improvements to make – and the blueprint to get there.
  2. FUTURE FITNESS builds on this. We work with you to define, design and deploy the transferable value and owner independence elements into daily work in your organization – so that brand, culture and purposeful leadership do their magic and build your organization to be future fit.
  3. THE BIGGER GAME helps your extend and expand your business, not just as an economic powerhouse but as a force for good – on things you care about. Done in the context of your strategy and situation, you operate to build support across customers, suppliers, partners, communities, regulators for who you are, what you do, and what you stand for. It’s the most valuable form of enlightened self-interest. It happens to be very good for business.

We will never pretend to know your business better than you do. But we do have a point of view about building value and what that involves. Here are some key beliefs we hold that reflect our experience:

  • Value is an economic construct with significant personal overtones – it’s not just financial, it’s also what you care about
  • Value acceleration is the best exit planning strategy for a business owner
  • Your business needs to become attractive and transferable to transition well
  • Think ahead to the personal components of your third act, post transition. Being happy usually involves having someone to love, something to do and something to look forward to. Funding your third act with/through your business is the part we help with. We have partners who can help you with the personal components.
