Architects design buildings. Accountants create financial records. And software developers make computer programs and apps. What do I do? I help clients to plan and execute winning strategies.
Applying the principles of strategy and design thinking, I help business owners, executives and boards to improve performance in three ways:
- Business strategist
- Strategic advisor and coach
- Strategy designer
Specific projects and assignments I’ve completed include:
- Designing and leading change management strategies that have helped firms to successfully navigate and grow through difficult trading events such as the global financial crisis.
- Developing franchise models and growth strategies that have assisted firms to scale from local to national and international markets.
- Facilitating strategic reviews and planning sessions that have helped leaders to clarify vision and values, set clear goals and develop a coherent strategy and steps to success.
- Creating initiatives to turn around under-performing teams, resulting in improved culture, better work engagement and team performance.
- Designing and directing wellness programs that have enabled participants to cut smoking rates, reduce weight, increase fitness levels and better manage stress levels.
- Re-engineering sales and marketing systems that have improved brand appeal and increased brand awareness, sales, gross margins and unit sales values.
- Coaching and training teams and individuals to improve leadership, strategic thinking, visual planning, relationship and performance skills.
- Mediating, negotiating and resolving contractual, employment and relationship disputes…for less cost and hassle than lawyers.

- The War Room – Strategic reviews/strategic planning facilitation service
- Strategic MBA – Training workshops that teach strategy, design thinking and visual strategic planning
- Strategist OnCall – My flagship service which gives clients ongoing access to strategy advice, coaching and planning expertise
