About Business Veteran

 

Mark knows what it's like to start a business from scratch and grow it into a medium size enterprise. It's tough - not at all easy, and there is a lot of learning involved.

 

In 1989 Mark started a business from nothing. Over 24 years he built it up into a medium size organisation turning over $5m and employing 30 people. In 2013 Mark sold it as a going concern (brand, staff, clients and all) to a well-established ASX listed enterprise.

 

Mark is one of the few business advisors/coaches in Australia who has built, single-handed, a successful SME and seen it through to maturity.

 

So he really knows what it like to run a business from start-up to medium size enterprise.

 

Originally an honours graduate in Computer Science, along the way he learned through the school of hard knocks (and subsequently a lot of PD) just what the essential ingredients of business are, and what it takes to successfully integrate them:

 

  • Leading/managing Staff (including self-management, values setting, cultural development and management structure)

 

  • Understanding your Numbers (including capitalisation, accounting, getting the contracts right and linking the weekly performance indicators back to the budget)

 

  • Quality Delivery (including customer service excellence, innovation, quality monitoring, constant improvement and process development)

 

  • Marketing and Sales (including understanding the sustainable competitive advantage, selling on value, and managing a sales process and sales team)

 

Having successfully sold and exited his business, Mark, through Business Veteran, now loves helping SMEs grow and flourish with a lot less headaches.

Since 2013, Mark has helped dozens of businesses move from zero profit, to substantial profits make him one of the leading business coaches in Perth. Most of these businesses are still clients and available as referees.
