The iconic businesses of this world each began with an ‘ideal’ – a dream of something new.
But these businesses did not start out as instant success stories. To achieve extraordinary success the founders needed pioneering vision, self-belief and passion. Critically, this level of success also requires the support of a great team.
Following significant business success in my life, I developed my own ‘ideal’. A passion grew to help entrepreneurs and disruptive businesses fulfill their purpose and change the landscape.
My vision centred around pioneering new, bold holistic approaches. (This was never going to be just another management consulting firm.)
Embracing the entrepreneurial spirit, I had the drive and courage to challenge the status quo. Breaking with the norms, I created a suite of services. And by tailoring these services to individual businesses, I’m able to look beyond the obvious and find the very best solutions for my partners.
Right at its core, this business exists to help innovators embrace the changes needed to seize the competitive advantage – and win.
Get in touch
Having spent the last few years developing my business processes and formula, I am looking to work with business partners who share my enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit. I work with small to medium-sized enterprises that serve a real purpose – working directly with companies that have a positive impact on all stakeholders.
Advisor & Director
STRATEGIC & BUSINESS GROWTH MENTORING FOR ENTREPRENEURS
With over 15 years of experience leading strategic and innovative projects for blue chip companies, I had a passion to share what I’d learned. And to help turn early-stage disruptive businesses into household names. Over the last few years, I’ve had the privilege to work with these types of companies, and with their founders. And of mentoring entrepreneurs who share my values and embrace expertise across their business and market sectors.

Ethos and Strategy
I have a long-term commitment to building strong, sustainable businesses that will have a positive impact on economies, industries and the people they employ.
WHY MY APPROACH WORKS
Smart entrepreneurs will pick a business advisor who has achieved success in the field. One who has lived through and overcome the same types of problems they face. (And who has done so in more recent years, as opposed to the iconic legends who started out 20–30 years ago.)
They will pick a mentor who remembers what running an early-stage business feels like – the confusion, the panic, the thrill. Someone they can relate to, be real with and never embarrassed to admit something they don’t know.
A mentor with specialist knowledge who can quickly understand their business. One who has developed breakthrough processes proven to work and a mindset to overcome the challenges.
Someone who will stick by them, mentoring them to have focus, clarity and the rigorous implementation that is my hallmark.
Ultimately, they will choose a mentor who will help them fast-track their business and reach their goals more smoothly. Someone who can help make their life better.
The quality of my own life improved significantly as a result of the success of my entrepreneurial ventures and business. Success made it possible to move my family to an idyllic location, and we now live in the beautiful coastal peninsula of Nelson Bay, Australia.
I sometimes have clients visit and spend time with me here for a short and intensive 1:1 period. However, most of our consulting will be done remotely, using HD video conference and remote team collaboration tools. This creates a seamless service that will fit into your business life (and mine) easily and smoothly.
“Wicked, brilliant and courageous.”
