To Take You And Your Business To The Next Level

Getting To The Next Level® Consulting Services

Manuel solves problems! Whatever the endeavour, project, business issue or roadblock, he can help you. With his diverse and extensive experience, combined with a proven track record, he is the E and the X in Execution. The E representing the ability to make hard decisions in a timely manner and move forward with confidence and intent. The X representing the ability to know the one most important thing to take action on at any given time.

Business analysis is a major function of what Manuel does for the clients he coaches, and he can do it for your company too. You will be provided the in-depth review of your entire business and the careful analysis that is required before strategic planning can take place. Each major area of your business will be scrutinized and an analysis formulated and presented in any number of formats including SWOT and Pyramid.

Sometimes companies with plenty of great people on staff find a need for outside resources to complete a commitment or enhance their existing talent for a particular project. Manuel can be retained for the purpose of running an entire project, system turn-up, or campaign, or he can supplement your existing team with the needed skills.

Manuel is a systems and migration expert and a master of process. He is the person you call when you need to transition from one critical system to another with maximum up-time and functionality throughout the project. From replacing your RMM to spinning up a new CRM, he has the experience and the know-how to architect the smoothest possible transition.

Manuel believes in training the trainer. If your team members need to learn how to run a successful and profitable project or how to come up to speed on a new technology, he can train them. From project planning to project completion and retrospective, he can provide guidance and accountability while training your people on how to create the same success in future projects.

Success is inevitable when disciplined people engage in disciplined thought and take disciplined action. You can rely on Manuel’s discipline to guide you to success and get you and your business to the next level.

  • For special circumstances and projects such as Company Turnaround, Post Merger Consolidation, or Acquisition, Manuel may be engaged as a Fractional COO for your company.
