The shocking sight of the Foster family’s wrecked house and their needless loss of life brings to the forefront what often goes on behind the scenes after a company failure.

John Whiteman , one of the UK’s top Troubleshooters, feels this did not need to happen, and action should be taken to increase awareness of the support needed for people affected by the credit crunch.

The emotions that affect people when a company declines are always intense. In a similar but not so tragic comparison that John had to deal with, it was the thought of the shame, loss of face and deep concerns about how other people would see and treat his client that took him to the tipping point. The range of negative emotions people feel vary from High Stress, Anxiety and Depression to Breakdowns, Strokes and Suicidal Tendencies. As someone’s health always suffers when under high stress, River Management focuses not only on getting a company to recover, but also an individual to recover. Just by getting a person back on their feet always has a positive effect on their company’s recovery.

It is in this area that John Whiteman and his team are continuing to make an impact. Currently we have managed to save in excess of 90% of our client’s companies. It is getting harder, but there is always a way if you take direct swift action starting with the finance department and then moving to sales. Over 75% of our success is through getting a company to increase sales in preference to simply continuing to cut costs. Cutting costs is relatively easy, but restructuring and increasing sales is always a better way to create a sustained recovery.

A business recovery is always assisted when we teach people how they can balance their emotions. 'The Way' by John Whiteman is a method that does this. It works on making people feel happier and more balanced through a combination of ways that include Exercise, Nutrition, Personal Space and good, hands on Mentoring Support.

For Christopher Foster to have been in the state of mind to do what he did is deeply sad as it need not have happened. If only he had known where to turn to when he started to lose control of his life, then he could have got help and this tragic story might not have occurred. The Credit Crunch will cause people to lose lots of money but they do not need to lose their lives as well.
