I regularly perform work for businesses to help them transition their business model. This is most often in relation to IT businesses but the same principles apply to a range of different businesses. I have been involved in creating and running Advisory Boards for organisations and I am a firm believer in the value of an Advisory Board.
I am the author of the SLAM DVD and founder of Small Business Ru!es. In 2000, I commenced research on the development of a superior business model in a quest to bridge the gap between customer needs and the services provided. As a direct result of its SLA approach, the firm has won 20 major business awards over recent years, including Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner of the Year Award and an award for Innovation from The Australian Business Council in 2006.
