A Steeplechase is a distance horse race in which competitors are required to jump diverse fence and ditch obstacles – The name is derived from early races in which the orientation of the course was by reference to a church steeple, jumping fences and ditches and generally traversing the many intervening obstacles in the countryside.
Steeplechasing originated in Ireland in the 18th century. It is an
analogue to cross-country thoroughbred horse races which went from
church steeple to church steeple, hence “Steeplechase“
A business in transition most often requires support from an independent and experienced team who can quickly help stakeholders understand all drivers of their business, identify obstacles and effect a sustainable plan for moving forward.
Steeplechase offers a unique mix of skills and capabilities among its team – We have the depth of experience across the reorganization spectrum including business assessments and business plans and transaction advisory services crafted to maximize value for all stakeholders.
The variety of obstacles and the length of the course in a Steeplechase is used to make the horse demonstrate agility, power, stamina, intelligence, and bravery – Communication between horse and jockey is paramount
Every business that faces challenges and transitions requires the team to demonstrate the same degree of agility, power, stamina, intelligence and bravery to navigate the obstacles it will encounter to get to a successful outcome.
