Golden Hour Thinking

What is the Golden Hour and why is it important for your business?

Talk to anyone in the emergency services about the ‘Golden Hour’ and they will tell you that what gets done in the first 60 minutes after an incident is crucial in determining the eventual outcome.

The same thinking can be applied to your business. Act promptly and decisively to deal with problems as they arise, and your business outcomes will be more successful. Learn from those situations and put into place ways of working to anticipate or avoid them recurring, and your success also becomes more predictable.

Easy to say? Perhaps, but now it can be as easy to do too with the assistance of BHa who have developed Golden Hour Thinking to provide SMEs access to the expertise they need, at the right time and cost.


The Golden Hour is for you, when –

  • You have a business-critical issue or a crisis in the workplace and need prompt expert guidance or support.
  • You have a business issue but are not sure what help you need and want to explore your options before committing to a bigger investment.
  • You don’t have the expertise or capacity in-house and need outside help.
  • You prefer to do things yourself but need some advice to get started.

How it works

It’s simple. Commission us for a ‘Golden Hour’ and we will assign you an associate who is an expert in the relevant business area. After just one hour with you, your expert will analyse the situation and produce a report outlining a corrective strategy, complete with objectives and an action plan for achieving them.

Business challenges we cover include:

  • Effective business reports and communication
  • Unclear policy or strategy
  • Business continuity and disaster planning
  • People issues
  • Investigations and counter-corruption management
  • Programme and project management
  • Change and risk management
  • Ineffective meetings
  • The need for robust business cases
  • Financing your business
  • Success in product or service development
  • Pay, pension and other business benefits

What it costs

Nothing, apart from an hour of your time. Obviously, we would like to continue to work with you to implement the recommendations from our report, but there is no obligation to do so.
