I personally like to visit client’s sites where they have and business premise to run their business from as I get a better understanding of their business operations by doing so. Calling out to site I get to meet key employees in their business, look at their processes of manufacturing if they are a manufacturing visit, get an idea of the assets of the business and where they might fit into the business.
For example I have one client who is the business of heavy metal scrap removal from various mines around Central Qld. I went with this client to some of the mine sites over the period of a couple of days and got a real understanding of some of the challenges they have in their business. I went with the client when they purchased their excavators to understand why they need to have all the extras put on the equipment for their health and safety requirements in order to get onto the mines before they even start work.
I will call out to a client whenever they need help with any business processes such as setting up accounting software, discussions with their banking managers when arranging finance, negotiations with the sale of their business to possible purchases and representation during any legal proceedings if needed.
I will visit any client at any time they think I may be of assistance to them in their business, whether it be to have discussions with employees, business associates in relation to their business processes or representing them at their financiers premises for finance.
