Your Local Advisor

Meet Michael

In my experience with businesses, I have found you don’t know what you don’t know. This leads to struggles with efficiency, time, teams and money.

I have been both an owner and leader of organisations. I have experienced the trials and tribulations faced by the modern business owner and entrepreneur.

I love the game of business. I love the challenge. I love the opportunity. I love the growth and change you have to go through to be successful.

This is why I became a Business Advisor.

I give business owners the tools to grow their businesses. This allows them to find balance, abundance and success in their lives.

My career has exposed me to all facets of running and scaling a succesful business. From a not for profit organisation, to multi-million dollar per year retail stores, regional SME’s and my own web and digital agency.

I specialise in coaching and training across a wide range of skills, including;
– digital technologies / web / IT
– sales
– team building
– leadership
– HR
and development, along with many others.

My goal is to teach and implement proven business systems, principles and methodologies to as many businesses as possible.

I want to help regional businesses and their owners not just survive, but thrive. I aim to help business owners live their dreams and achieve their goals, both professionally and personally.

As your local business advisor I have two separate but connected roles:

One is to connect with the local business community with workshops and educational material, the other working with our clients.

Let's Talk

Business Advisor

Working with clients on a Return-On-Investment (ROI) basis.

This means the income made by clients as a result of working with us must be at least a 5 times ROI. We believe fee structures should be transparent and accountable. For this reason we have proprietary software to ensure both client and advisor have an ROI “fit” before starting a program.

The objective of a client partnership is to meet agreed performance standards to:

Maximise client income…

Rationalise client effort…

Optimise client scale…

Promoting Locals

Every one of our consultants lives in a local community and drives past hundreds of businesses every day.

Since TAN was established in 2014 we have met, promoted and helped thousands of local businesses with this program. Help has taken many forms from Free PR where businesses are promoted on our social media platforms through to assessing businesses for profit potential. Often business owners will simply want a few pointers from an outside perspective.

All our consultants do this on a voluntary basis as their contribution to building business success.

Planning Sessions

Quarterly Planning

  • Every business owner needs to step away from the day-to-day running of their business to think about longer-term issues and opportunities.
  • Often the best environment for this is with other business owners who are faced with the same challenge of balancing their operational role with their longer-term role of leading and managing their business towards its goals.
  • Quarterly Planning Sessions make this easy where business owners are provided with a structured format to build their plan.
  • All planning sessions feature our signature 1-Page Plan that lists out 3 core projects for the upcoming quarter and a scoreboard for monitoring results over the period being planned for.
  • Business Owners are provided with a workbook and planning guide to ensure they walk out clear, focused and ready to achieve the projects they have set.

Trusted Advisor Network

Michael is part of a dedicated team across Australia & New Zealand.

Our past 18 years in the advisory space has been the catalyst for developing our break-through approach.

Our programs are only offered to clients on an ROI basis after businesses have been analysed to determine the upside available to the business owner. Businesses must demonstrate a 500% ROI to be eligible for a program. This approach has been developed after years of in-field experience of being consultants, coaches, trainers and presenters.

Most importantly, over the last 12 years TAN has developed a deep understanding of working with business owners from every industry imaginable.

It has allowed us to continually develop leading methodologies, systems and intellectual property that makes up our program material. The synergy of working in partnership with our team along with such diverse clients has given us a collaborative culture that has become the most valuable part of the way we operate as a network.
