Successful Business Feng Shui
Some of the most forward-thinking corporations in the world today, including Orange, McDonalds, Virgin, Coca Cola and HSBC, use feng shui because they value it as an essential investment for increasing their growth, profitability and prestige, to gain an edge on their competitors. And the power of feng shui is within your reach. Our consultancy practices the same well-established techniques that are used to gain outstanding results for businesses across China, Hong Kong and Asian areas. Using feng shui to enhance your business energetics could dramatically revolutionise your commercial success - from increased sales figures and profits, responsive customers and productive, supportive staff. It is equally applicable to home-based workplaces, individual businesses, large organisations and public institutions.
A consultation is advantageous at any time, even as early as sourcing suitable premises or in the design stage to optimise internal layouts. Whatever stage your business is at, your specific concerns and aims will be addressed. A commercial feng shui survey is approached differently to residential consulting, its objectives being geared primarily towards optimising your business potential and gaining competitive advantage. Our corporate business consulting service is shaped to your exclusive requirements and we always have a detailed discussion beforehand to ensure maximum consulting effectiveness. A preview meeting may be arranged instead for complex projects.
We undertake a meticulous survey of your entire premises. Factors identified during the assessment that may be holding back your business progress, productivity and profit, are all addressed. Taken into consideration are physical influences externally as well as internally, time factor and energy flow throughout, plus evaluation of working positions related to the compass orientation and floor plan, for you and key personnel. Tried and tested authentic feng shui strategies and remedies, often as simple as plants, water, natural elements, lighting, colours and artwork, are introduced to enhance, support and safeguard your workspace. You will receive our expert advice throughout the survey, extended, when requested, to storage solutions, décor, design, business projection, replanning and refurbishment, staff relationships and resolvable environmental problems.
A distinctive, clear corporate identity that positively communicates the unique value of your business is a key factor for reaching out to your customers, attracting more clients and boosting your growth. Your logo, business card, website content and publicity all convey strong messages to others about your business. In our experience, feng shui has powerful symbolic principles for creating and projecting a successful strong corporate identity. We will analyse the projection of your promotional materials and provide a perceptive appraisal of your branding image, giving you realistic suggestions through to redesign participation if required.
Through a reliable oriental system called Nine Ki, it is possible to gain useful insight from a person’s date of birth regarding their personality, preferences, strengths and limitations. Understanding yourself, a business partner, employee, customer, job applicant or competitor gives you a far better opportunity to make successful decisions and to get the best out of people. Identifying interpersonal dynamics and tendencies in advance enables you to select the right personnel, build outstanding teams, harmonise relationships and optimise performance potential. It is very useful to have such insights in the workplace and we regularly provide this service.
You profit when your working environment feels good. A harmonious, well-considered atmosphere encourages clear-thinking, better decision-making, creativity and productive outcomes. It attracts and retains motivated, loyal people who perform well and work harder. There will tend to be a reduction of disputes, illness or boredom when you are perceived to care about the wellbeing of your business environment. When workspace energetics are enhanced, everyone benefits.
Sylvia Bennett’s Expertise
Sylvia’s working life began by training in business administration and merchandise selection at Marks & Spencer’s buying headquarters. That extensive experience underpinned the development of her career path, which progressed to group fashion buying, caterring management and directorship of an international textile company with a Hong Kong office - her introduction to feng shui, with a few formative deviations along the way! Eventually, she chose instead to practice natural healthcare as a transition into feng shui consulting after major studies with three Chinese masters. To augment this work she qualified in interior design and by working closely with property development and architects practices, she became an affiliate of the Royal Institute of British Architects. She has eighteen years reputable feng shui consulting experience.
The rare combination of Sylvia’s former background in business and personal development, her authentic feng shui expertise, design, colour and environmental knowledge and her flair for combining them effectively to suit western business needs, make her an exceptionally accomplished consultant. You can feel confident that she will provide you with a highly professional, sensitive and trustworthy level of service that could revolutionise your business prospects. Diverse corporate clients span Offices, Factories, Hotels and Restaurants, Property constructors, Recruitment Consultants, City Trading and IT companies, Banking Headquarters, Dental & Healthcare, the NHS, Hospitality and Leisure sectors.
Fees and Services
Fees are tailored to reflect the brief of each client, starting at £590 for a small workplace, increasing for larger premises and more complex projects. The fee structure agreed between us is always confirmed in writing before a consultation. It is quoted inclusive of prior preparation, travelling, the site survey, recommendations provided during the consultation followed by a comprehensive written report or ongoing reports, including layout plans and suggested adaptations where appropriate, with generous post-consultation support where needed. Where an overview of premises is requested without a report, fees are modified accordingly. Ongoing further work is negotiated either at a fixed fee or an alternative agreed basis. A retainer can also be arranged when regular maintenance services are required.
Auspicious dates for moving premises, launching a new venture or product, signing contracts and other matters can be calculated for you by arrangement. Environmental surveys to offer solutions for excessive electronic fields, sick building syndrome or unbeneficial former circumstances in the workspace can also be undertaken (see details below). Problems in a business may occasionally stem from feng shui concerns in your home, or that of your key personnel, therefore it is worth thinking whether expert help would be useful there as well.
Environmental aesthetics greatly affect performance and morale, which is why visual perception is a basic business feng shui consulting consideration. Uplifting colour choices, light, textures, natural materials and plants have all been found to create a balanced environment, boost concentration, mood, and vitality. Conversely when a workplace lacks visual stimulation, boredom or restlessness may become an issue. Incidentally, plants have a valuable role in your workplace as they also improve air quality and regulate ambient temperature and humidity.
When health ailments such as headaches, respiratory problems, poor concentration, moodiness or lethargy are evident, building factors may be responsible. Sick Building Syndrome is commonly caused by structural materials used, air impurity, chemical emissions from equipment or electronics overload. It can be minimised with our considerable expertise. A survey is carried out to identify various possible causes and you will be given practical assistance to help resolve their adverse effects. Electronic emissions are measured with professional field metres.
Very important, if you feel that your business environment may be affected by unfortunate former occurrences, it is essential to prevent a continuation of mishaps by clearing these intangible influences. Sylvia’s expertise extends to successfully undertaking this work. We will be glad to give you a quotation for this service. For further information about these environmental considerations, please read our pages Environmental Surveys and Space Clearing.
