“Dear United States,
“Dear United States,
I can save you $400 million
Dear United States,
I can save you $400 million”
The above quotation featured on the opening slide of Mr. Baudin’s PowerPoint presentation at April’s SME breakfast. His presentation focused on a theme central to all businesses, regardless of size, location or sector of activity. That theme was cost control.
Mr. Baudin is the Director & Founder of BBZ Conseil, a Chamber member and specialist in helping businesses manage and reduce their costs.
The example featured above highlights the underlying principal of BBZ Conseil’s work– that very small changes in practises can lead to big savings. Mr Baudin began his presentation by referring to a famous example of printer ink. He emphasised how expensive printer ink is, with standard printer ink costing more per litre than Chanel perfume. Based on the calculations of a particular mathematician, the United States government could once therefore have made substantial savings through simply changing the font used on their publications.
Mr. Baudin then went on to give examples of results from audits BBZ have carried out, where the simplest changes have lead to reductions in costs of up to 50% for businesses. The four main areas in which BBZ specialises include telecommunication, print, taxation and property. The savings that can be made in these areas have applications to all businesses and companies and are often quick and easy to implement.
