Since I was 8 years of age, my dream in life was to pursue a career as a professional golfer. I was never gifted with natural talent, but as the years passed my ability to navigate around a golf course improved significantly. I learnt a very valuable lesson through this journey – hard work does pay dividends.
I come from an educated family and my father always insisted that I gain my tertiary qualifications. As fate would have it however my destiny was to pursue other options. I graduated from my HSC and three quarters through my B.Com degree, I was offered a golf scholarship to the land of opportunity the United States of America! I stayed in Northern California for a while and soon realised I was a small fish in an ocean. It was one of the hardest decisions of my life – count my losses, move on and relinquish a lifelong dream.
I returned to Australia and set up my first business venture. After 3 years, I sold that business. I was 26 years of age. I then identified several world class mentors that took me under their wing and developed my skills further. I had the opportunity to learn cutting edge sales and marketing techniques from some very talented and accomplished entrepreneurs.
Over the years I have worked with many small to medium sized businesses both as a General Manager and as a Business Consultant. I assist business owners in making the right decisions around growth, sales development, rationalisation, recruitment. retention, change management, production, leadership and performance.
My experience extends to include developing tailored solutions for corporate entities such as Cisco Systems Australia. Some of the programs I have developed have received industry-wide recognition based on practicality and innovation.
I have a massive fear of failure, struggle with mediocrity and conduct myself with the highest amount of integrity. This will serve your business immensely.
