FREE Self-Audit: Identify your company’s strengths & weaknesses
It is easier than you think, with industry-leading business coaching experts using proven blueprints to maximise the efficiency of Small to Medium Businesses (SMBs).
What is harder is implementing these tried and tested business blueprints, which is why we help business leaders do it. We support companies in implementing practical, well-proven strategies to improve company performance and staff accountability.
In today’s information era, discovering good ideas for how to better manage your business is easy. However, successfully implementing those ideas is a different matter.
In my 30 years’ experience in business management and coaching, I have identified these skill sets and successfully executed them in a wide range of businesses, including Fortune 100 companies, Microsoft, IBM and the United States Postal Service.
Now, as a private business coach, my passion is in assisting business leaders in discovering and activating these techniques to not only improve efficiency and productivity, but also alleviate stress and instigate better time management.
I have experienced the pressure that poor business management can create, both at work and in private life. It is now my mission to relieve this pressure and streamline company practice for business leaders of all kinds.
I focus on a common gap in experience that most business owners have between knowing how they want their company to run and actually implementing these processes.
Before establishing Better Execute, I was an angel investor involved in selling two businesses to Fortune 100 companies in the US – Fidelity Investments and Textron. As an advisor, analyst, director and angel investor to over 200 companies ranging from small startups to Microsoft, IBM and the United States Postal Service, it’s fair to say I now have a significant amount of experience in growing successful businesses.
Through the years, I have passionately worked as a leader of change, helping the early adopters of new technologies and services to gain traction across many industries. This began in 1994 in the manufacturing industry with Pressure Assisted Plastic Injection Moulding. From there, I helped educate the business market on the importance of email marketing, eventually helping businesses understand the value of co-location data centres and ‘software as a service’ technology strategies in the early 2000s. In 2008 I was helping the electronic medical records market gain traction. By 2010, I began working with and promoting early business intelligence reporting tools and the use of Unified Modelling Language and Object Orientated Design.
Currently, I am dedicated to helping business leaders better execute proven management strategies and disciplines. Having been a leader of companies with up to 75 employees, I know firsthand the importance of strong financial management disciplines and accurate data. I’ve learned through experience that there can be a big difference between learning about proven business practices and instilling those practices in your company’s culture.
Every business owner brings their own set of attributes to their company. That unique mixture of skills, personality, and values needs a certain environment to develop. Implementing smart management strategies supports that environment. It doesn’t mean stripping out what makes business fun by enforcing a series of rigid cookie-cutter processes.
Improving how a company works requires a number of different skills and disciplines. What I bring to my clients is an efficiency for getting things done and an empathy for the people involved in the improvement process.
For me, assisting business managers and watching their companies thrive is a reward in itself.
