How do I recession-proof my business?

Shield Corporate Finance rides to the rescue with 5 Top Tips for making the most of a downturn

lifeboatUnwelcome as a looming recession may be, it should spell long term success for businesses which embrace the opportunity to run a tighter ship in terms of basic management disciplines. Remember, your competitors are facing the same storm; what matters is that you come through it better than they do.

In these tougher times, Shield's Business Improvement tool kit is coming into its own as a recession-proofing programme for any company in any sector. What started life as a 6-12 month fitness regime for would-be sellers of businesses is now proving to be highly effective in building a business's "core stability"; in developing critical management muscles needed to fight recession and emerge more powerful than ever.  

The priorities which emerge for recession-proofing a business are these:

Recession-proofing tip 1: Manage your cash flow mercilessly

Recession-proofing tip 2: Critique your credit capacity

Recession-proofing tip 3: Sell smarter

Recession-proofing tip 4: Market more efficiently

Recession-proofing tip 5: Cut costs cleverly
