ABOUT US

Business Leaders With A Long View Focus On Building Value In Their Businesses. You Can Make Decisions To Maximize The Value Of Your Business. We Can Help.

When you begin each day in the Agora (the marketplace), you have decisions to make.  Which initiatives will you move forward? Which projects will hit a wall and need to be shelved? Which decision will scale your efforts and which decisions will distract you from taking ground.

At the end of the day, all business decisions impact the lasting value of the business. That value positions the company to grow, to attract suitors and to help you as the business leader, leave a legacy of lasting value in the community.

It’s exhilarating and daunting. You only have so much time and effort to give.  You want your effort to make an impact and move your business forward toward a greater valuation.  You don’t have time or money to waste on decisions that won’t work, or which you will regret later.

You’re smart, you have insight, and given enough time you’ll make the right call, but time is your enemy.  You would love a path to decision making that you could trust and depend on.

For the past 3 decades, the advisors from Agora Consulting Group have seen every dynamic of business decision imaginable and we’ve crafted and honed approaches to building lasting business value that help prepare your business to either grow by acquisition, or be prepared for exit.

The path begins when you get real honest about what you care about, what motivates you.

Then we help you map your plan with measurable and realistic targets and metrics so that you can execute a plan to see results you’ll enjoy forever

Building Lasting Business Value Begins With The Right Equation.

How do you build business value? It comes down to values.  At the end of the day, what do you care about? What motivates and inspires you and your team?  The Value Equation defines a path to unearth the values of your organization, align to those values, and ultimately deliver greater value…..even greater valuation!

An Open Minded Team

30 years of experience has not hardened our perspective.  If anything, our perspective has broadened.  While certain principles of value creation hold true from one generation to another, we never stop looking for innovative ways to approach the challenges businesses are facing in improving their value.

Let's Work Together

Our success is found when you are successful.  You are the subject matter expert in your domain.  We have tools and processes to help accelerate you toward your goals.  You can trust that when we work together, our focus first and foremost is on your business thriving and growing in growing in valuation!

For many, the idea of working with a consultant is unappealing.  Maybe they’ve had bad experiences in the past.  Maybe the consultant offered solutions to the wrong problems.  Or, maybe the consultant missed who the true hero of the business is…..the business owner.

We believe in doing that builds lasting value for the business and the community (employees & clients) that business serves!  When we engage in a project, expect that we will work to find ways for you to build legacy as you pursue your goals of growing the valuation of the business!

You’re smart! You’re in your role for a reason.  If you chose to not engage with Agora, we’re confident that over time you will figure out a way to get to your goals.  It may just take quite a bit of trial and error and time.  Clients work with Agora to accelerate them towards their desired valuations in a reduced amount of time.

Lots of business leadership gurus talk about values.  It’s easy to get lost in the hype without making them practically useful.  We think about values as the key to unlocking business valuations.  Businesses that grow their valuation and sustain over time do so because they has values to guide them.  Over and over again, when businesses don’t just survive but thrive we find that under the surface were business practices in complete and total alignment to the business’s values.

What new ground could your business take if the challenges ahead of you were in the rear view mirror?  Every day that a decision to increase value goes by momentum lost.  Get started today making decisions that will leap your business forward toward great and lasting value!
