ICON is a global franchise business offering a consulting service to SME's. We have an international network of business professionals, who all share some key characteristics; first, all have a significant level of experience in senior management, and this may range from lawyers to accountants, sales professionals, marketers or general managers, but all have worked for a number of years at senior management levels; second, all share a passion and hunger to help business owners achieve their goals, and have substantial experience of the change management process, ensuring that they can use the proven ICON consulting methodologies to get the best result for their clients.
Most importantly all in the ICON network share the following three key characteristics: -
- A solid underpinning of 15 years senior management experience, normally at director level.
- A determination to succeed, for themselves and their clients – they can handle temporary set-backs and business challenges.
- The self-awareness to learn, to challenge their own pre-conceptions and to learn from their colleagues and their own clients.

The ICON systems were developed in the 90's and are based on the consulting models used by the big consulting companies such as Accenture, KPMG and McKinsey etc,. They have been refined constantly through working with over 7,000 global SME's, and now represent the most powerful consulting system in the global market today.
These consulting systems are based on a change management approach, where the corporate objectives are broken down into a distinct operational plan that impacts upon each functional area of the business. For example, every project will identify the major company objectives which in turn are mapped into distinct operational objectives for all the functional areas of the business. This holistic approach ensures that ICON can achieve sustainable, profitable growth for all our clients.
The main requirement of the process is that at every stage progress is managed via a step by step approach, so that the business owner can easily implement the agreed action plan. At each monthly review meeting a robust analysis is prepared by ICON to prove and verify the business is moving forward in the right direction. This test and measure process ensures the consulting programme always delivers the desired results.
The kinds of project ICON will get involved with include the following:
- Systemise the business to enable the business owner to reduce their time working in the business
- Improve the effectiveness of the team
Today, many business owners, especially within the small to medium sized market (SME) are faced with the stress of working long hours, increasing competition, low profit margins and the difficulty of finding good staff and keeping them.
