scoping meeting it quickly became evident that our business would extract

We engaged Lloyd and TCB Solutions in April 2011 to assist us in setting a
clear direction for our business and to establish internal systems to grow
turnover and profit. From the start Lloyd challenged us to drill down to the
three or four critical things that drove the business, but more importantly, us

As Managing Director of Blueline Fabrications Pty Ltd, I engaged the services
of TCB Solutions in May 2009 to assist in combating the impact of the economic
downturn. Lloyd quickly identified the key areas that were critical to turning
our business around and together we commenced developing and implimenting
strategies to increase both turn over and profitability.
The approach adopted by TCB Solutions was tailored to our specific
circumstances AND more importantly Lloyd clearly outlined the benefits across
all of the Company’s business functions. This process has resulted in the
business not only turning around but has put it in a position to concentrate on
the functions that deliver benefits to our clients.

incorporation of strategic planning, good corporate governance and risk
management the Company is in a much more sustainable position to grow as the
