OUR APPROACH

The first step is to determine where you are and where you want to go. The second is to create a map of the steps needed to get there. You will need a bunch of people around you to help get you there and this is our USP. We are strong and robust; in our approach we might be the only people that will tell you the truth. Together, always together, we can help build a clear vision of where you want to go and how you are going to get there.

The pandemic has created huge polarisation, many businesses fight to survive in collapsed markets and others try to survive because of huge growth. A third category of business are those start-ups which do not rely on sales but need to build teams to deliver their goals. The pandemic has had another effect, and that is the flow of new businesses and ideas fuelled by lock down. For many the lock down has been a catalyst to finally enacting their ambition to set up their own business.

Wherever you are in your business’ development we can apply our transferable skills to help.

While all strategies and plans in these markets need to be able of flexing, in disruptive markets you need to present, with confidence and clarity, your plans for success. This involves not merely creating plans but building your understanding and knowledge of the challenges and opportunities the market offers.

By starting from a point of clarity you will be able to convince current and future stakeholders to buy into and help deliver your vision.

RELATIONSHIPS

The word partnership in our name refers to both our relationships with our team and our clients. If DBP are going to be able to help, we need to be immersed in your thoughts, philosophy and ambitions. We need to understand what you have and what you need. This involves an understanding of the science or technology surrounding your idea, product, services or project and the resources you have. This takes time; speed is essential and therefore so is our availability. Our philosophy is therefore to concentrate on a select number of clients at any one time. Because of this, we are highly selective in our choice of projects.

THINK BIG

We will always encourage you to be sensible in your approach to operate in disruptive markets and not taking too many risks. However, we will always encourage you to think big. Think big, sell big. We will challenge your preconceived ideas to find the least complex and fastest route for the best return on your financial and time investment.

RESPONSIBILITY

Making a difference to people’s lives is important to us. Historically, we have been involved in products that have made a difference to people’s lives, but, in a time of national crisis, we all owe a duty of care to build strong and robust businesses to create value and employment. This is a really important aspect for the team, so we try to limit ourselves to those projects that really are going to make a difference.

GREAT EXPERTISE COMES GREAT AGE

Our great expertise and experience come from being really old (particularly Tim) so we really want to have some fun with our clients. There is a job to be done, a hard job, but if we can’t have some fun along the way what’s the point.
