About Us

Our purpose is to help you and your business through positive and sustainable change.

Our purpose

Owning and building a business is one of the most satisfying journeys to embark on. It is a passion that we share with you.

We understand that the business you have created, the people you have surrounded yourself with, the clients you supply with goods or services, the community you are a part of and the family you have been supporting are all important to you.

We also understand that as you grow your business, keeping up with all the changes necessary to ensure your business will continue to grow in a sustainable way, to keep your people motivated and performing and to ensure that your family is on this journey with you can seem like an impossible task.

It takes a balanced approach to provide business sustainability, people focus and family harmony.

At LiquidGold, the support we provide to Family Business is not just work. We live for the success of our clients and like to work with you as true partners for the future.

Our desire to help a sector that is often misunderstood and underserviced is what motivates us to invest our time and emotions to provide solutions that work best for Family Businesses.

We are passionate about working with business owners to achieve sustainable success by creating positive change for their people, family and business in a balanced approach.

More specifically, we partner with business owners to:

  • Develop tailored solutions to improve organisational design, performance and communication and to better engage their people
  • Help recruit, develop and retain the key people essential to deliver on business strategies, today and into the future
  • Support the family or ownership group with good communication and decision-making frameworks
