a Business Mentor
As a mentor and coach
I am a Chartered Accountant, and have worked with leading accountancy firms in Adelaide, Hong Kong, London & Sydney.
I subsequently worked in senior management roles across a range of dynamic and complex organisations in both the commercial and not-for-profit sectors.
In addition, I served with distinction on the Boards of a number of not-for-profit organisations.
To gain further insights into how businesses function, I undertook additional studies in Human Resource Development.
“I live and breathe the challenges faced by the owners & leaders of businesses with big dreams and tight budgets.”
Since becoming a Business Coach & Mentor, I’ve mentored a wide range of businesses to successfully implement sustainable change to achieve the desired outcomes of their owners
From the diverse range of studies and experience, I possess the concepts knowledge and insights to understand the challenges faced by micro businesses. As a result, I am able to provide the guidance that will yield tangible outcomes to micro businesses on the road to success.
As a person
I am happily married to Andrea for over 25 years. I have two delightful children Tim, who is pursuing a career in hospitality and Amelia, who is starting her journey in teaching. I also share my home with a devoted black lab.
I gain a lot of enjoyment from watching & playing sport. In particular, I am a passionate supporter of the Adelaide Crows in the AFL and Sturt in the SANFL. I enjoy keeping fit by playing tennis, working out in the gym and through the simple act of walking.
One of things I love about sport is the passion & drama it brings out in both the participants and the spectators. As it turns out I love Opera for the simple reason that it shares with the sport the telling of a story filled with loads of drama & passion. No matter whether it is a sporting event or an opera or my clients and their businesses, I become totally involved in the drama & the passion as the story evolves.
I also take much pleasure from spending time with family & friends with sparkling conversation over a bottle of fine wine and sharing great food.
