The Waymaker Way

Our Story

Making a way for business to grow is our tag line for a reason. Being able to come in with fresh eyes, survey the current situation and see the best way forward is something our Founder Lydia has developed over the years. The Waymaker Way offers businesses practical, logical, strategic and realistic changes that will directly impact the bottom line.

The first thing you’ll notice when you have a conversation with us is our generosity with our knowledge and expertise. We do that because we’re passionate about seeing businesses reach their full potential. That happens best when we share what we’ve learned on our journey. Delivering considered, unique support and forming a strong, practical partnership with you is at the heart of The Waymaker Way.

We match your dedication to your business’ future by giving you the support, tools and expertise to make it happen. We’re committed to building a strong community of successful, inspired business owners.

We’re here to make business easier for you.

Our Values

What Makes Us Waymakers Tick

We believe that you have gifts and talents and seek to draw them out, work with them and make the very best of them to support the growth of your business. We also assume our team have gifts and talents, so constantly look to play to our strengths, develop our superpowers for personal and professional growth.

No matter the size or significance of the task, we give all our might when supporting you or each other. We are stronger as a team that way.

03. Service

Delivering a professional and reliable service goes without saying in our book. We will always go the extra mile to deliver above and beyond. We are here to serve you with practical support.

04. Productivity

We believe we were made to work and rest. Working to the best of our abilities means we can rest, satisfied we’ve done a great job. Resting and finding our joy helps us replenish our mind, body and soul, ready to be productive at work. We add purpose into our understanding of work hard, play hard. Balance and stamina are more highly prized than burn out and winning at any cost.

Every business is unique and has different needs – we always make sure we’re offering tailored solutions. We see the whole you, always giving maximum value and return for your investment. We also see our team as individuals, with full lives that do not stop when the clock starts. Bringing our whole selves to work means we’re valued and appreciated, loyal to the team and you.

Owner & Director

Getting to know so many businesses going through change and growth, supporting them and seeing them thrive and achieve their definition of success is very fulfilling. I love seeing the progression from when we first meet a business and their team, learning all about their challenges and ambitions and then taking them through our practical advice, working with them and seeing the results.

Building my team of Waymakers has been so rewarding. We’re carving out a new way to do business which focuses on servant leadership, recognising the whole person, allowing the team to fulfil their potential.

Waymaker allows me the flexibility and freedom to explore new strengths, and the encouragement to discover new skills. Collectively we are building upon our gifts and talents and celebrating the achievements along the way. Marking milestones for both our clients and our team is at the core of being a Waymaker, and always inspires and motivates me.

Our company values place great emphasis on looking after the ‘whole’ person so that we can confidently put ‘all our might’ into everything we do, and being able to see the benefits of working in this environment is both refreshing and rewarding.

A Plan to Suit You

We understand cash flow is crucial to any small business. That’s why we why offer a range of payment plans, bespoke to each client.

We define the scope of our projects clearly, so we’re always on the same page and there are no surprises. We agree on expectations, deliverables and outcomes, in an honest and open conversation. We know things inevitably evolve and change, and having a close partnership with you means we discuss those things as they unfold, and, if necessary, re-define the scope of our work as we go.
