Fort William Consultancy firm kickstarts growth

Northern Light Consulting looked to Business Gateway for one-to-one advice and support to develop a growth action plan.

About the business

Northern Light Consulting is a multi-disciplinary consulting business operating principally in the construction, engineering, aquaculture and food production sectors.

Since it was founded in 2013, Northern Light has secured new business valued in excess of £20 million for its clients and supported the delivery of over £100 million of construction works.

Business Gateway’s fresh perspective and wealth of experience was crucial to the development of our new growth action plan.

How Business Gateway has helped

Northern Light approached Business Gateway Highland for one-to-one sessions from a business adviser and support to develop a growth action plan. Business Gateway Highland also supported its successful application to the Highland Council’s Graduate Placement scheme, receiving an additional member of staff to help the business to grow.

Greg Riddle, director of Northern Light Consulting, commented: “As a business consultancy firm, we appreciate the importance of an outside eye when you’re implanting a new strategy or process. That’s why Business Gateway’s fresh perspective and wealth of experience was crucial to the development of our new growth action plan.

“Thanks to the support, we were able to take on an additional employee via the Highland Council’s Graduate Placement Scheme. This new appointment was key to our expansion plans and is a fantastic example of how Business Gateway can help you take the next step on your business journey.”

Emma Lawson, business adviser at Business Gateway Highland, added: “Through a combination of one-to-one support, the implementation of a new growth strategy and a successful application to take on a new graduate employee, we were able to set Northern Light Consulting on the path to future growth and expansion.”
