TEC Chair: Small Business Program

As an award-winning consultant (with recognition by the Australian Financial Review), I challenge CEOs and executive teams to renew their organisation’s strategy, recreate their culture, improve their reputation and boost their performance.

Over the last 30 years, I’ve helped some of the best known businesses including Coates Shorco, White Lady Funerals, Landcom, Treasury in Canberra and international shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen.

Outlook for the group

In leading a TEC Group, I aim to assist business owners and CEOs to improve their effectiveness as a leader and driving business results, leaving a measurable impact on their organisational success.

Experience

I’m an accountant with a long list of qualifications and accomplishments and was recognised in 2007 by the Australian Financial Review as being a Qualified Business Advisor. For the past 12 years I’ve been a Non-Executive Director of the BEC and was appointed in December 2015 as Interim CEO in the capacity of Executive Director.

Prior to starting my own consulting practice in 2003, I’ve previously worked in the public and private sectors with both national and international responsibilities, including being 2nd in charge of treasury in Canberra (and delivered the transition from cash to accrual accounting across 44 government agencies) followed by turning-around a national logistics business.

I sit on a number of commercial and not-for-profit boards (including a Credit Union) and am well regarded as an experienced and relevant business advisor and business broker.

I’m a recommended speakers for CPA Australia, regularly presenting at CPD events for accountants as well as conferences such as AMP Financial Planners Association and Interflora.

As a long-term proud Macarthur business owner and resident, I’m actively involved in the business, residential and charity communities.
