I was born a numbers junkie, so it’s not surprising that my first career was in commercial banking. In 2013, after more than 27 years providing services to business banking customers, I knew it was time for a change.
I was spending more time with airline flight crews than I was with my family. Then I was offered a “better” job on the other side of the country – and that was IT. I’d always meant to run my own business one day – and that day had just arrived.
I had all the tools I needed. Over those years of analyzing thousands of Australian businesses of all sizes for strategy, succession, marketing, risk and operational discipline, again and again I’d seen potential profits being lost rather than retained. There was a real need.
Over my time in banking, I’d learnt massive amounts about what “worked” in business and “what didn’t” , so I had a great offer to make to the family business market.
