Depth, Diversity and Experience

I’m a Vancouver, BC- based independent consultant with a passion for helping entrepreneurs succeed. For over 35 years, I’ve been advising business owners and senior managers in one capacity or another. My formal education is in economics and marketing.  I am a Certified Management Consultant (CMC), which is the foremost professional designation for management consulting in North America.


Service Areas

What i cost

Outstanding Value, No Surprises.

I’m Affordable

For on-going counsel and hands on assistance for business owners I offer two levels of support depending on a client’s needs; 8 or 16 hours per month.  At either level the monthly cost will be less than your lowest cost full time employee but in all likelihood a much bigger bang for your hard earned buck.   I also offer more modestly priced engagements for coaching or counsel to individual entrepreneurs or business aspirants.

You’re Not Locked In

I do not require long term commitments. Retainer relationships can be cancelled with 30 days notice. My clients engage me long term based on the demonstrable value, support and expertise I bring to them.

No Surprises

If you retain me you will know what your costs are in advance each month. If I provide you with an estimated cost range for, say, a business plan, you can rely upon no deviation without prior approval.  There won’t be any surprises. Period.

I’m Flexible

I can work on a project basis, a per diem rate or by the hour.  Whatever you’re comfortable with. If you’ve had a bad experience with consultants and advisors before, you’re not alone. With Kenmuir & Company, be ready to be pleasantly surprised. My clients have been.

– Bruce Howitt
President, LRI Lighting International

“My business partner and I had no prior experience in small business when we decided to start our own company. We contacted John Kenmuir and with his wide range of expertise he was able to put our plans and ideas to paper in a way that made financial sense to us as well as potential money lenders. We knew that it would take extra effort to qualify for a business loan during these uncertain economic times, but our hopes and dreams were in good hands. Our banker said our Business Plan was ‘as good as they come’! I will gladly recommend John’s services to anyone in need of direction and advice in their business planning.”

Not only did he identify the problems but he engineered and implemented the solutions with us.  When you are asking yourself, “but where do I start?” Stop, and ask John.”
