VANCOUVER, B.C., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The dramatic change in exchange rates between the US dollar and the Canadian dollar earlier this year and resulting economic uncertainty is causing businesses large and small on both sides of the US/Canadian border to find themselves below their profit targets 6 months into the year.
However, experienced turnaround executive Anne C. Graham is on a mission to revitalize the manufacturing sector, helping CEOs, CFOs, and COOs in US and Canadian companies reclaim control of their profits in any economy.
"Smart entrepreneurs would never start a business without a Business Plan. Experienced executives would never lead their business without a Strategic Plan. Yet leaders at all levels frequently try to grow their business without a Profit Plan," says Graham. "The net result is that profit is merely the leftovers between missed revenue expectations and higher-than-expected costs, both of which are triggered by exchange rate fluctuations. We can no longer leave profit to chance."
In her seminars and consulting engagements, Graham shows businesses how to find 1% everywhere to improve top- and bottom-line growth safely and sustainably. "Every 1% we can find in the RIGHT areas of a business typically drives a 16-38% increase on the bottom line – a multiplier effect unknown to most leaders," she said.
