I’m Stewart Clark, business banker turned business builder.
After almost 3 decades in Australian banking, providing services to business customers, I decided it was time for a change.
I “retired” from banking in 2013 to become a business banking advocate and cashflow/risk advisor (under the Next Element brand) – helping businesses deal better with their banks.
Over time, I found that most small businesses weren’t realising their potential – and there was a lot of suffering, stress and loss going on that just didn’t need to happen. Good businesses were getting sold because the owners were burnt out – not because the business didn’t have potential.
What was missing was “advanced driver” training on running a business, specifically tuned for family businesses.
So SCS Performance was born – to provide practical tools and skills to family businesses to make them highly efficient, financially sound, wealth-building assets which provide some real life balance for the owner.
