About John

Accredited Family Business Advisor

Mentor to Business Owners

TEC Group Chair

Running a business can be a lonely experience. As the person in charge, you’re expected to know the right thing to do, to have all the answers, to lead with purpose.

Yet, depending on the circumstance, that may not always be the case.

In situations like those, wouldn’t it be great to have someone to confide in; to bounce ideas off; to remind you of what’s important?

Over the past 15 years, I’ve worked with 100s of Australian business owners on a multitude of issues. Generally, these CEOs, presidents, business owners and heads of family enterprises seek me out because they are worried, overwhelmed or confused about their business and are looking for a sounding board.

Someone to depend upon for solid, consistent, objective, third-party business insight, knowledge and perspective.

I’ve performed a variety of roles in that period including that of:

  • Coach and Mentor
  • Advisor
  • Counsellor
  • Facilitator

My role is to assess each client’s situation individually and to wear the right hat at the right time. Since 1998, I’ve been a friendly face, a set of ears, a voice of reason and even a mediator for many Australian business owners.

Most business owners approach me because they’re stuck – unsure of what to do about this or that. With very few exceptions, my clients report greater clarity and confidence about what to do next as a result of my questioning and input.

I help them to get “unstuck”.
