Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Do Your Services Cost?
For consulting services I will provide a free first meeting to understand your business, your goals and the scope of work. Then I will provide an upfront, fixed quote based on how much work/time is required to successfully achieve your goals. So you know my complete fees before we start any work. For my personal coaching program the cost is $500/month. This includes:

  • 4 hrs of one-on-one time either face-to-face or via Skype/Facetime.
  • Unlimited access via email, phone. All phone calls will be returned on the same business day (most within 3 hrs) and all emails within 24hrs. Basically I am available for any business needs at all times.
What Type Of Business Do You Work With?
I work with businesses of all sizes, types and from all different industries. I have worked for multi-million dollar manufacturing and mining companies, right down to small mum and pop retail stores and home based businesses. Depending on your individual situation, needs and budget I can develop a flexible strategy to help you achieve your specific business goals.
Do You Have Any References Or Proof Of Your Work?

I have a large number of personal and business references. You can see what some of my past clients and colleagues say about my work here. And I also have some simple case studies for you to read. Though I usually find that having a casual meeting either face-to-face or via Skype is the best way to determine if we are a good fit for each other.

My company has very proprietary information, which I do not want to leak out. Do you sign non-disclosure agreements?
Yes of course! Once we decide that we are a good fit for each other and proceed to work together I’m more than happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Do You Work With Clients Outside The Bundaberg/Wide Bay Region?
Yes most definitely. I have worked with companies all across Australia. Modern technology makes it very easy to communicate and I’m happy to jump on a plane and come to you if needed.
Will You Do All The Work For Me?
Well that depends? As a consultant I will take the time to understand your objectives. I can then plan and execute complete projects from start to finish. Obviously the more work I have to do the more I will need to charge. If you want to join my coaching program then you will need to be committed. I will provide guidance and help develop key action plans. I will also keep you motivated and accountable, but you will have to be committed to making your business a success and be willing to do what I advise you to do.
I’m Only Just Getting Started In Business Can You Help Me?
Yes. Ensuring you have a solid business plan and strategy before starting your business is crucial. I can help you build a solid foundation for your new business and also help with any grant funding applications.
I’m Still Not Sure If I Need Or Can Afford A Consultant/Coach?

That’s fine. You can always get started by filling in one of my diagnostics to identify your businesses strengths or weaknesses. You can also give me a call or we can arrange a casual meeting to discuss your current situation. There is no pressure or obligation to do anything after the meeting. My “FREE Sounding Board Meetings” are designed to see if I want to work with you just as much as it is offered to help you decide if you want to hire me.
