Blah, Blah, Blah

We would kick ourselves if what we delivered to our clients was just words. The roll out of Rhetoric and process. The one size fits all and a cookie cutter approach. We call this Blah.

We teamed up because we are like minded and singularly focused on understanding a business and creating a relationship where the conversation/actions are beneficial and achievements are real. Not just words.

My psychometric profile has me on a line between ‘Coach’ & ‘Driver’.

Having lived and worked (employed and self employed) in NZ for 16 years I get that most businesses are lacking a degree of competence and/or resource (people, funds etc…). When clients engage me they do so as a partner of their business not a satelite to it. 

My clients, at a basic level, want to Save and/or Make Money and this is where my focus lies by staring into and creating/executing what is needed to make it happen. Client environments currently include:

  • Trades (various)
  • Import/Export
  • Manufacturing/Processing (FMCG)
  • Electronics
  • Interior Design (Commercial)
  • Kitchens
  • Security systems

I often get referred to, and complimented on, as a ‘sounding board’ – an extra voice to Check, Challenge, Evolve or Improve an opinion
