Gone are the days of 30 years of service and a gold watch, gone too is the assumption that all positions require a full time resource.
Increasingly organisations engage with the right skill set for the right task – be it full time, part time or contract. Engagement with Tonic gives you the best of both worlds. A committed partner with the skills and capacity you need, able to deliver in a flexible, adaptable way.
We can provide strategic thinking and evolution when you need it without a skilled resource working well below capacity in the in-between times. And we can work with you in a variety of ways - from short, sharp, defined projects to ongoing support and mentoring.
Tonic specialises in working with organisations with purpose at their core and we know that juggling the demands of trade and profit with the mission that drives you can be demanding and require constant balance and adjustment.
With a solid understanding of these potentially competing priorities, we can get straight to the task at hand instead of spending precious time and resources understanding the nuances of this new way of doing business.
The answer to lack of capacity doesn’t have to be a permanent increase in headcount. We can be that extra stretch you need from time to time to take your organisation to the next level or take advantage of a big opportunity.
Whether we run with a project independently or embed ourselves working alongside you as an additional member of the team, we help to drive or implement key projects or evolve your business processes.
Gap Analysis & Process Improvement
Tonic helps you take a step back, reassessing the current state of play in order to implement the best plans for the future.
Once we’ve got to know your business and the challenges you face we can agree the key areas of focus. We then work with your team to define the pain points and potential solutions, seeking the best way forward before implementing and refining the agreed approach.
We work across many functional areas including;
- financial management, processes & reporting
- organisational capacity & structure
- software utilisation & optimisation
- project planning & implementation
… and other business management foundations that help your organisation tick.
Growing organisations often need bursts of increased capability rather than additional headcount.
Tonic can provide oversight and mentoring of your finance team to achieve the right results. Be it short term to restructure your finance and reporting or long term support and analysis.
This service is tailored to the organisation and can adapt and flex with your needs.
Virtual CFO services can include:
- month end analysis and management reporting
- assistance with cashflow monitoring & alerts
- gap analysis & process improvement
- budgeting & forecasting
- audit oversight & assistance

Board and stakeholder reporting is vital for effective decision making – but can be tedious and time consuming!
Board packs need to evolve but, over time, you can find that they have expanded without consolidation resulting in reporting that is inefficient to produce and lacking in clarity of purpose for the reader.
Tonic can help your team and your Board to redefine current reporting needs and identify efficient, effective mechanisms to produce these on a regular basis.
The Result: concise documentation and clear, effective Management and Board communication
Sometimes you need to step up and out of the day to day to build a clear picture of your current position and reassess your direction.
Maybe you can’t involve the broader team as they are occupied with business as usual or not ready to engage with the bigger picture – or perhaps you just need an independent sounding board?
With varied experience across the sector, Tonic can help you to define or redefine your strategic plan or jump with you into that hot air balloon and take a bird’s eye view of where you are, where you are headed and how best to get there.
