Building Business Success evolved because I’m passionate about helping business owner’s work on their business as opposed to in their business, especially if the owner hasn’t had a business management background gained from working in the corporate world or from business management training. It really comes down to ‘how do you get to know what you don’t know?’
A key thing jumped out at me when I started the research, and talking with business owners..…
the needs of business owners are such that traditional training or coaching, quite often, is not what they are looking for.
As a business owner myself, networking with other business owners and through my involvement with not-for-profit organisations, which assist business owners, confirmed how true this research was.
I’m fortunate to have over 25 years of senior managerial experience with large companies in the UK and Australia in the field of business management and strategy, as well as formal qualifications including a MBA. The positions I held started in marketing and then morphed into running departments, developing strategy, managing people, training and developing staff and managing budgets; kicking goals along the journey.
I left the corporate scene a few years ago, and have been teaching business management at University Queensland College, which is very motivating and rewarding; I guess this comes as no surprise really, as I know I’m motivated by making a difference.
The questions which have been running round in my head, are “how do business owners get to know what they don’t know, to help them improve and grow their business?, how do business owners find the tools and information they need in one spot? And how can business owners get access to the information in a way they can apply it to the business and in a way which fits in with their lifestyle? So, I’ve combined my knowledge, experience, skills and passion for helping business owners and created Building Business Success.
Building Business Success helps business owners in the areas of creativity and innovation in strategic planning, communication skills, collaboration (team building) and critical thinking to build their business success. Businesses that have connected the dots with us include privately owned businesses as well as local, state and national government departments.
