Business Growth & Development Coaching

Many Australian business owners dream of success, but sometimes don’t get there for many reasons.  They may be stalled, or worse, slipping behind.  It might be not knowing what to do, or where to get help, or simply having someone to keep them on task and be a ‘guiding hand’.  Other businesses are doing great, but want to work even smarter and streamline their operations to improve their business even more.  Do you want more sales and more profit but less stress?  Read more

New Business Start-up Coaching

From conception (or possible purchase) through to setup and starting – I will be with you all the way.  Whether you’re considering buying into a franchise or want to start a new business from scratch, I’ll be asking you tough questions, sharing my resources and being there to support you.  I’ll be honest with you if the idea lacks merit.  I’ll be challenging you all the way and holding you accountable.  I’ll connect you to the right people and provide you with access to a bundle of resources.  With so many new business failures, why wouldn’t you set yourself up for success by having a business expert in your corner providing you with experience, wisdom, knowledge and guidance?  Many people new to business know the industry they are heading into well, but can lack business acumen, experience and knowledge.  Two heads is better than one; especially if one of them has 30+ years of experience helping Australian business owners.  Read more

Mentor & Business Trainer

In addition to being a seasoned trainer, I mentor in Leadership, Management, Relationship Building and Networking.  If you are new to a leadership or management role, I know you will benefit from my expertise to become an effective leader who is able to optimise their team.  I can also assist with personal branding to affect positive career advancement as well as Time Mastery skills.  Additionally, I work with those new to networking or wanting to get better results from their business networking.  Read more


Australia Wide Business Coaching

Although Brisbane-based, I service clients Australia-wide.  With technology ever advancing, I can effectively and positively look after clients within Redland City, Brisbane region or beyond to other areas of Queensland and interstate.  For those businesses in remote areas, small towns (where everyone knows everyone else’s business or options are limited), or in more expensive cities, I can help. 

With me, you will access through my business coaching all of the following:

  • One on one time with me each week
  • Email, text or phone support
  • Detailed business analysis
  • Review of your online presence
  • Accountability actions to keep you on track
  • Business Essentials Checklist
  • Full SWOT Analysis including Review
  • Business Training
  • Access to my contacts – everyone from SEO experts to lawyers and accountants
  • Resources including budgets, marketing plans, time planning schedules, templates etc
  • Access to business education, reading and business knowledge
  • And much more, that’s in my smallest package. Larger packages include even more!

What I don’t do…

  • I don’t do Group coaching. To me, your coaching is not a social activity; it’s about getting results for you. No two people (or businesses) are the same in a group; the group might not cover what you want, or at a speed that isn’t optimum for you. 
  • I don’t lock clients into long-term contracts. In fact, other than notice required (to stop or pause) I have no contract term periods and work month by month.
  • I don’t employ other coaches; when you sign up with me – you get me.
  • I don’t take on every client and when I am reaching capacity – I do close the books. I work specifically in service-based businesses.
  • I don’t work to a set syllabus. Yes, there is structure, but as every client (and their needs are different) I tackle what you want or need, rather than sticking you in a box, or a system.
  • I don’t coach based on failure but on experiences of success. Nor is coaching only on theory, but based on practical real world experience (coupled with formal qualifications).

Tap into my motivation, experience, passion and guidance to affect a positive change for your business today! The best way to predict the future is to create it. My passion is your potential.

Redland City Chamber of Commerce





Redlands Coast

Results are a huge part of my focus when working with clients.  It’s more than talking; its affecting positive change.  My service varies according to client needs and is flexible with a range of packages.  I’m intently passionate about business and goal achievement, with an approach that is guiding, teaching, motivational and hands-on.  Whether it’s putting together a marketing plan, minimising risk, improving cash-flow, increasing sales or solving a problem, I use my 30+ years of experience to help other businesses (and business coaches) do what needs to get done.  My clients are my biggest fans – but don’t just take my word for it – see the testimonials below.

Whilst I have qualifications (Accounting, Management & Training) it’s the decades of real-world business experience which makes me an expert.  I expanded my own business from a garage to a national business in five locations, which I then successfully sold and have been coaching businesses for over a decade as well as other coaches through my Coach the Coach ™ program.  Additionally, I’ve won dozens of Business Awards – the latest being Small Business Coach of the Year 2019 – Australia. I’ve sat on grant and award judging panels, published six business tips books and written for numerous publications.  I sit on a number of Boards and Committees and am active in my community.  Needless to say; I’ve got great strategies around time management.

Yes, this section has been about me, however, my business coaching is all about you.  When it comes to your coaching, you want to know it will represent value for money.  By not locking you into long term contracts, that’s my guarantee to you.
