Every business should have the opportunity to overcome its challenges and become profitable. At Sandra Beswick & Associates we are relationship-driven and deeply committed to supporting our clients with their challenges and finding the best possible solutions and strategies for their businesses.

We assist companies that may be facing distress or seeking a turnaround, or are looking for ways to maximise profitability and potential growth. In each case we focus on the particular challenges and tailor positive solutions. We promise interventions that are in the best interests of all parties and make every effort to avoid closure and liquidation.

Our services include business support, advisory, reviews and assessments, analysis and monitoring.

Has your business growth declined?

You know your business has the potential for exciting growth, but you just can’t move ahead. We can identify the inefficiencies that are holding your business back and provide you with proactive, tailor-made solutions to grow your business and sustain its success.

Is your business experiencing ongoing cash flow issues?

Your business is just not making a profit and your cash flow is non-existent; you’re even feeling the pressure from creditors and lenders. We will get to the core of the problems and implement an effective turnaround strategy.

Is your business in financial distress?

You may be under threat of liquidation and facing legal action from creditors, and your employees could lose their jobs. We will shoulder the burden by taking supervision of your company until we have identified the issues and implemented a constructive business restoration plan.

“"Thank you and Raphael again for having the confidence in us and supporting us it is greatly appreciated. You have set a precedent as a Business Practitioner for others to follow.

The approach to Business and BR will never be the same again. You have thrown a lifeline to many who would have faulted and waned into the sunset. We wish you the very best in your endeavours going forward. Your name and your ability is already being mentioned in and amongst major corporates around South Africa. You still have a major role to play in the space of business and uplifting the economy of South Africa. You go girl! "”
