What happens when your site offers many services and your content covers multiple subjects related to one industry?
In general, Dave, individual entries or articles on your site are focused on individual topics, so even if you cover a wide breadth of material since Google looks at *pages* not *sites* for the most part, it'll naturally work out.

*Build maximum in bound links with 100% relevancy.
