How to Grow Companies In Africa is the motivation for Gabriel Domale Consulting. We are a team of management consultants providing insights to companies and investors operating in Africa.

We adopt a “success-based consulting model" to drive growth across the continent.

Local consultants can help African companies

Africa has enormous challenges. Interestingly, Africa has become a continent of enormous opportunities and problems waiting to be solved. Gabriel Domale Consulting prides itself as a "team of solutions waiting for problems".

African companies are technically competent. Yet they are experiencing operational difficulties. These include ineffective business strategy, funding strategy, corporate governance, cost management, performance management, due diligence, and lack of appreciation of the little things.

Most businesses will like to get the services of management consultants but they lack the funds to pay for consulting fees. They are reluctant to include consulting services in their frontend cost planning.

African companies with a low level of initial working capital can work with local consultants with support of banks to create mutual benefits. Gabriel Domale Consulting is facilitating a more collaborative relationship between banks and African business leaders.

Success-based Consulting model

Does your company have a business model that will lead to growth? And you are struggling to pay for needed management consulting services? You should contact Gabriel Domale Consulting info@gabrieldomale.com or +2347034604152

Gabriel Domale Consulting, an African based management consulting firm is offering a success-based consulting approach to help companies in Africa to achieve growth and competitiveness.

Success-based advisory means we take the risk of being paid upon successful outcomes. As a management consulting firm passionate about the future of Africa, we link the growth of our firm to the growth of our clients. We create an interdependence relationship.

At Gabriel Domale Consulting, we provide you with high-worth management consulting services and allow you to adopt a “structured deferred consulting fee scheme”.

Our success-based consulting model enables companies in Africa to focus on delivering their products and services to the market. While the consulting services are paid for from revenue. Our clients are able to reduce their frontend cost loading.

And importantly, our success-based Consulting model drives growth strategy across the continent. This success-based consulting model is critical to the growth of Africa being the new frontier of opportunities.

Preparing African business leaders for the future

Our experienced consultants provide advisory to business leaders who want to take their organisations competitively into the 2020s.

To ensure global relevance, we utilise prior research work done by the World Economic Forum, discussing five core areas of focus:

1. Master the new logic of competition: The emerging wave of technology including artificial intelligence will turn every business into an information business. Companies will increasingly need to compete by leveraging technology to identify and fulfil each individual customer’s changing needs.

2. Design the organization of the future: Organizational designs must embed the technology that continuously gathers information, derives insights using machine learning, and act on those insights. The designs should have flexible backbone systems and evolvable business models.

3. Apply the science of organizational change: Most companies are reluctant to undertake fundamental change. It is important they initiate their transformation programs early. Leaders need to employ evidence-based transformation - based on understanding empirically what works.

4. Achieve innovation and resilience through diversity: Diversity is not only a moral imperative but it makes businesses more effective in the long run. Diversity increases the capacity to innovate and resilience. Companies that encompass more heterogeneity are better positioned to withstand unanticipated changes.

5. Pursue social and business values: The role business play in the society is facing greater scrutiny. The model of corporate capitalism is being questioned. Leaders need to create social values as well as economic values. Leaders are expected to proactively shape critical societal issues.

Unsolved business problems impact performance

Business leaders need to speed up decision making and execution to solve critical business problems which often do not appear obvious. Some few examples are shown below:

1. Lack of shared vision: Vision of the company is not reflected in the affairs of the employees and the vision is not known by the lower cadre staff - leading to low staff engagement and productivity.

2. Poor growth strategy and competitiveness: The company is not functioning at full capacity or at its optimum.

3. Poor corporate governance: Decision making lies solely in the hands of the CEO, staff feedbacks are not regarded, and the corporate structure does not fit the organisation – leading to the shrinking of staff ideas and productivity.

4. Inefficient marketing/sales team: No marketing/sales team that sells services to potential clients, no strategy to increase the clientele base, lack of clients - results in lack of jobs being executed and reduction in cash flow.

5. Poor financial management: Finance of the firm is not managed properly, ineffective funding strategy and lack of focus on cost savings.

6. Poor performance rewards system: No policy guiding the remuneration of employees, ineffective performance reward and salary structure - employees are compensated based on their personal relationship, not performance.

Financing strategy

We help companies develop the right frameworks to enable business owners and managers access funding, utilise the funding and fully repay loans. This creates mutual values for businesses, banks and investors.

The Gabriel Domale Consulting model is to drive sustainable growth across Africa.


We create value for business financing in three main areas: (1) helping business owners to develop structured loan proposals and financing strategies, (2) helping banks to conduct due diligence on loan proposals, and (3) providing support to business owners to deliver contracts/projects timely and within costs – ensuring full loan repayments.

This model is rooted in our strategic thinking that if African companies can be supported to achieve grow then African banks will also grow. 

Oil industry operators and investors

The oil and gas industry space in Nigeria and Africa is opening up progressively for more participation of local investors as marginal oil field operators. Often these local investors collaborate with foreign investors to operate marginal oil fields. Investors should understand the implications of investment and field development of the marginal oil fields. 

Investing in the oil and gas industry is usually complex, challenging and rewarding. Yet there are a lot of blind spots. It is always advisable that the services of ex-managers with decades of actual working experience in the oil and gas industry should be sought. This is to avoid mistakes made by earlier marginal oi field investors. 


You may refer to the following Nigerian regulations: (1) petroleum (amendment) decree 23 of 1996, (2) marginal field operations (fiscal regime) regulations of 2005, and (3) guidelines for the award and operation of marginal fields in Nigeria (explanatory note).

Technical and commercial advisory – Oil and gas industry

Operators and investors in the oil and gas industry should seek technical and commercial advisory. Gabriel Domale Consulting functions as technical and commercial advisors.

The advisories being provided should include operatorship; corporate and business strategy; finance and treasury operations; transformation, governance structure, risk and compliance; investment plan and budget planning; commercial and technical due diligence; capital efficiency and operational excellence; and cost reduction program.
