Pearl Comms – A Menzies Brighter Thinking case study

Menzies advising Pearl Comms

Setting up your own business for the first time can be a daunting task. Alia Al-Doori, founder of Pearl Comms, was looking to start her own business, but wasn’t sure how to make her ambitions a reality. Then she met Menzies Partner Martin Atkins who kick-started her ambitions with some tried and trusted #BrighterThinking advisory.

Achieving your goals

Martin and his team put Alia’s mind at ease immediately. They helped her create a clear action plan, define the business structure and the commercial solutions that form the foundations of a viable business that is set for success. Not only that, but Menzies provided solutions that catered for what Alia could do herself and what added-value Menzies could bring, while clearly outlining the costs involved so that there were no surprises later down the line. Here is Alia’s story:

The Outcome

puzzle pieces“Martin provided me with a list of everything I needed to do, a clear idea of the costs involved, highlighted what I could attempt to do myself, how Menzies could help and what order things needed to happen in. He helped put my mind at rest, provided me with the support I needed to realise that setting up a business in two weeks was possible… just about!”

Pearl Comms is proud to say it is a profitable business that is going from strength to strength. Alia and her team have brought seven retained clients on board, have won three projects and have grown two of their existing accounts. Most importantly, because of Martin and his team, Alia knows she is set up and has the advisers in place to help her to continue to grow.
