Running and scaling a business is not easy. We've been there! Without the right people, tools and system, you put a lot at risk...


  • Office politics and confusion

  • People are working in silos  rather than a team

  • No one cares as much as you do

  • High turnover


  • Things feel a bit chaotic

  • You are putting out fires every day

  • Processes are not defined and followed

  • Projects are delayed and over budget


  • Stagnant growth

  • Uncontrolled growth

  • Low productivity

  • Not enough profit

David Lloyd, Owner
Lloyd's Custom Woodwork

After using “traditional” consulting companies we found little value added to our business, we were often left with more confusion than actionable tasks and skeptical of consultants in general. 

What a difference Andreas made, His knowledge of the EOS system and small business made us comfortable right from the start, with a no nonsense but caring approach Andreas helped the leadership team get in alignment and “rowing in the same direction”. 

If you are considering EOS as an operating system for your company I highly recommend Andreas and all he will bring to your business.


Shane DeWitt, Director of Strategic Development AquaChem

The EOS process has helped us to become a more cohesive team that communicates openly and effectively. Working with Andreas has helped us to stay on task during planning sessions. He has guided us through difficult discussions that may have been avoided without his involvement. He's helped us realize alignment within our organization.
