SPECIALIZING IN BUSINESS OWNERSHIP TRANSITIONS

Sheepdogs are known as leaders and guardians.

This is similar to business owners who grow, lead and protect their businesses and employees like a flock.

What we do

We help prepare for BUSINESS OWNERSHIP TRANSITION

Sheepdog Strategies Ltd., helps agri-business and agri-food business owners plan and implement a successful transition in ownership of their business. This starts with creating a succession plan and may include consulting in areas such as business strategy, organizational structure, and operational improvement to prepare the business for sale, as well as management of the ownership transition, and post-transition support. We also help the Boards of agricultural sector organizations (i.e. producer representative, agricultural societies, and advocacy organizations) with succession planning and stakeholder engagement.

Business owners and sheepdogs use their training and experience to operate effectively and will disrupt things when change is needed. To make measurable change they need to step back, assess, and choose a path forward. This could be in response to a desire to grow, a market change, or the search for a successor.

We recognize the sheepdog in ourselves too, and use our deep understanding of business to help other business owners.
