Building Better, More Resilient Business and More Profitable Business Through Optimisation.

How can you reimagine your business?

5 years from now ...

Where do you want your business to be?
What are you doing differently?
What are you doing the same?
How has your niche market changed?
How is your business or brand perceived?
Why do your staff love working for you?
What percentage of your best talent have you retained?
When are ready to exit?
What do you still need to transform?
The Total QX Framework helps you gain and deliver clarity on these and many more questions. You then generate and execute measurable actions that create optimisation across the entire business and bring about the next phase of the desired business transformation.

Let's be ... candid and factual!

You're in business to make money! In fact you're in business to make as much money as you can. The more money you make, the more value you’ve delivered. If this resonates with you, and yours is a growth oriented business with the intention to scale faster than, and beyond, industry standard organic growth, let's talk!

Get a different perspective on your business

We all have blindspots. We have also all had situations where we realise that we keep trying new things, or worse, doing the same thing because it used to work, and not getting the desired result. A different perspective from a foundation of experience based knowledge can be helpful to breakthrough and breakout of the stagnation and impasses.
  • Obstacles and opportunities

    Irrespective of whether you're a growth-oriented small to medium business or (a division of) a large multinational there is always room for improvement; something that can and should be transformed.
  • The inspiring power of small

    Don’t sweat the small stuff. Embrace it!!

    Over the last three decades I've seen that it’s the small things we do that make the biggest difference.

    Sometimes it's a tweak, the smallest turn of the dial, that delivers the most impact ... and it's the small things, hiding in plain sight, that are easiest to miss!
  • Interesting statistics

    91.8% of businesses I've asked say that operationally their #1 commercial goal is they want clients to buy more, more often. 

    96.3% also want more clients.

    100% said they would prefer new clients from direct word of mouth referrals than any other form of marketing.

    Results like these are some of what Total QX and Optimisation Coaching deliver. 
  • It's a choice

    Would you rather take baby steps and achieve your desired results gradually, or possibly make a quantum leap and fast track your business growth and profits?

    Neither is right nor wrong, and neither is safer nor riskier than the other.

    It simply is ... a choice!

Expectations fulfilled

When I seek advice I want and expect people to have the relevant industry knowledge and experience. I imagine you're the same. I have 30+ years business experience internationally, across multiple industries.

My Story

The Education System Re-imagined

Even the so-called future focused education systems fall short of society's needs in 30 years. I've imagined something different that meets what is to come.

People who can be ... without thinking

A way of being that requires no judgement of self or others, avoiding the illusion of perception and both subjective and objective realities. It is what it is.

Giving, so that life is good for everyone & all

The world has more than enough resources to provide every human with a good life, and respect people and the planet. The problem is one of distribution.

Spirituality, connecting to source

Whether you say God, Allah, spirit, source or something else, it makes no difference to me. We each have our own path. Here's an insight into my belief system.
