Choose One Of Three Service Levels That's Right For You

We offer a range of advisory and/or ‘hands on’ growth consultancy services, on flexible terms, as although most clients face similar challenges, no two businesses are ever the same.

2 Day Review

A great way to start the long-term transformation of your business. Over two days, deploying an in-depth diagnostic questionnaire, our experts carry out a full review and analysis of the issues your business faces and the processes you have in place, revealing the opportunities available to you. The result is a detailed, personalised roadmap to success, that describes the practical, workable solutions that will help your business forge strongly ahead.


Full consultancy

In 6 modules – which can start with the 2 Day Review - our unique Rainbow Growth Ladder diagnoses issues, strengthens your strategic direction and covers all aspects of your business development plan.

We start with a comprehensive audit to give us a full understanding of your business, then deploy the Ladder to guide you painlessly through the process of creating a strategic plan that works. The modules cover every aspect of your business – they take in Management and Governance, Finances and Funding, how to improve your Structure, Culture and make Operations more efficient and even advise on targeted marketing and sales using our unique TABS strategic marketing framework.

Then we conclude by building in robust systemisation so the good work can continue effortlessly. Like all rainbows, there’s a pot of gold at the end – and it’s called success.


On-going advisory

Once you have benefited from the 2 Day Review or Full Consultancy, we offer a helpful on-going support service at NED and Chair level. Our expert advisors continue to share their business acumen, developing your board’s knowledge and skills with robust advice, and provide ad hoc support whenever they need it.

It’s an exclusive mentoring/coaching approach from friendly experts who know from experience how to overcome the many challenges of running a business.




We have benefited hugely from the 30+ years experience Mike has in the events industry and he has been pivotal in two transactions that we have carried out, buying The Cavendish Consultancy and part buying We Find Venues. Mike continues to chair our Board Meetings and attending regular Senior Management strategy sessions where he is equally passionate, forthright, innovative and process-driven. He is constantly on the look out for further growth opportunities & I have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.

We found the Two-Day Review incredibly useful as a team to sit down and talk through our goals, ambitions and have honest conversations. I'm very excited for what we'll be able to achieve, having a list of goals that the whole team is working towards feels like a real step forward. We would recommend working with Kershaw Partners. The Two-Day Review is a fantastic way of analysing your business to be able to put a really strong action plan together.

Working with Mike and David was the best investment we could have made in our business this year. They provided a different perspective on strategic thinking and also gave us insight into areas we had never considered. We are going to be working with Kershaw Partners on an ongoing basis to help grow our business even further.

Co-Founder - Just Seventy


The extensive knowledge of business and advice given by Kershaw Partners has been an invaluable part of setting up my business. Whether it be their attention to detail, patience or constant support, they have been an integral part of getting my business up and running. David has been my right hand man, that in itself deserves a medal! He has been full of encouragement and always there to stop me making any decisions I’d regret!

Harriet Cuming

Founder - Whisp


Mike joined us late 2016 initially as an advisor and has been fundamental to the business since. Mike was brought in to help scale our business but at the same time improve our commercial processes, reporting and governance. His 30+ years experience has helped us identify growth opportunities and structure various deals that we wouldn’t have been able to complete on without his time and advice. Mike chairs our board meetings and is a mentor to the senior leadership team and a great team motivator. He’s passionate about people, connecting businesses and creating opportunities. He’s a game changer!

Gary Exall

CEO - Metatech


The business, the team and the partners are in a great place at the moment and so much of that is down to the work you have done. If someone had showed us where we’d be 2/3 years after our first meeting we would have been delighted in what we have achieved.

Guy Rodger has worked with Oxygen Event Services Ltd for 4 years and has been an asset to the team throughout. His enthusiasm and ambition for our business has helped win new contracts and develop new areas of the business. In addition to creating new opportunities Guy has been a huge support to the development and stability of our company bringing his wealth of skills, experience and knowledge to the table. Straight talking and honest, Guy possesses a level of integrity rarely seen these days. He has been an excellent ambassador of our brand and I am hugely grateful for his support over the years. I cannot recommend Guy highly enough for any task or role that suits his skill set.

Paul Edwards

Managing Director - Oxygen Events


Guy Rodger has provided invaluable guidance and support for our events business at Kirtlington Park since 2018. In addition to providing a strategy report and overseeing the process of upgrading our operations, he has been a great mentor for our staff. He is keenly aware of the events market place and has been an excellent ambassador for our business.

Peter Buxton

Owner - Kirtlington Park


Working with Mike and Pete from Kershaw Partners has been fantastic for ISLA. They’ve brought a commercial realism, breadth of experience and structural methodology to the operation that we’ve hugely benefited from simply didn’t have. Their down to earth approach and simple, easy to understand modules have helped to transform how we approach the operation and positioning of ISLA. Not only that, but they’re great fun to work with!

Anna Abdelnoor

Co-Founder - Isla


A huge thank you to David for all his assistance regarding the TABS framework lead generation programme he has implemented with M&T. It’s been a total eye opener as to what can be achieved, from a far better understanding of our target market demographics, creating more engaging content, that has proven to draw in new contacts already and strategic market positioning. David really is a star and if you do nothing else today – take 5 minutes to reach out to him, you will not be disappointed.

James Abbott

Founder - Mix and Twist


WOO Architects have been working with Mike and Richard since late 2018 and they have been extraordinarily helpful in improving our business, developing our processes and giving us an exciting platform for growth. The past year has been particularly challenging and having Richard at the operational helm as we chartered some choppy waters has been a huge benefit to me personally and the whole team at WOO. Kershaw Partners bring a calm and considered approach to business, focused on helping us achieve our goals and as a result the whole practice is now more financially secure, better organised, happier and more excited about the future than we have ever been. We look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Kevin Owens

Founder - WOO Architects


A huge thank you for everything. Mike, you and Guy are both really are amazing. I absolutely loved having you work with me and am so excited for your guidance for the future.

Sam Kingsley

Founder - Kingsley Events


David has a fantastic enthusiasm and knowledge that helps event professionals plan and execute effective business development campaigns. I couldn't recommend him enough!

Lyle Hastie

Digital Director - Immersive AV


Kershaw Partners have been an incredible help to Immersive AV over the past year and I couldn’t recommend them more highly. Mike is a superb mentor, coach and business thinker with such varied and valuable experience across the UK Events Industry. Having his cool head and focused business brain has been invaluable as we reset the business for future growth.

Sharon Reynolds

CEO - Immersive AV


Have just finished working with David on TABS Framework I couldn’t recommend him more. The process we went through to create a positioning and messaging that set us apart in a very crowded marketplace, and the subsequent outreach programme has helped us build a strong pipeline of future business.

Chris Ablett

Founder - Stage Engage


I have spent a lot of money on consultants in the last two years, and other than the money I have spent with Kershaw Partners, the rest of it was a waste. Without a doubt it was the best two days we have had as a business and the debrief document that we received will be integral to our ambitions and the way we communicate with our team going into next year. Put simply it was just very, very good.

James Middlehurst

Founder - Kalm Kitchen


Just to say thank you for the past two days. They were inspiring! It’s amazing the power of vision, belief and a clear plan. I had been feeling completely exhausted and had lost all motivation, and by contract last night a fresh spark was ignited, and I was awake most of the night adding notes to my to do list, Really enjoyed working with you both and excited for the future.

Charlotte Penniceard

Founder - PenniBlack


We have used consultants in the past, but none who have walked the walk and are so grounded. The process gave us the reassurance that we were doing a lot well and that the problems we had were not insurmountable and were opportunities moving forward. We would definitely recommend the 2 Day Review to anyone who has established themselves in the Event Industry and is looking to take things to the next level. Kershaw Partners are so well connected so for us the process was well worth it.

Taran O'Doherty

Co-Founder - Yahire


Guy from Kershaw Partners has really helped us to take a step back and imagine our venue hire business from the client's perspective. His strategic guidance and pragmatic approach has helped us to make some key business decisions to help us drive up commercial revenue.

Rosie Baker

Director Commercial and Operations - The Foundling Museum


Mike Kershaw and his team took the time to understand our event operations and then, bringing their extensive industry knowledge and experience to the table, made some very helpful recommendations as to how we could improve in the future. They were a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to others looking for advice and support with events strategy.
