large scale | high value | low margin
Businesses that don’t have a compelling strategy supported by a specific plan, are simply holding on. In an environment of escalating risk, they will cut cost at the expense of value and chase cash flow rather than profit. They are forced to accept under-resourcing and internal overload. Business as usual is then all about survival.
Brian has constructed buildings, built businesses, developed people and created value. He is an analytical, educated, experienced, hands-on and hands-in Executive who is happiest frontline and knee-deep getting sh!t done.
Within a diverse portfolio of experience over more than 30 years he has grown a $100M business without external capital, created a $250M joint venture with a public company, led numerous multi-million dollar business interventions, negotiated large scale project cost recoveries and activated a billion dollar property development portfolio.
Think of Brian as your business partner specialising in strategy and risk across the full spectrum from new business activation to turnaround management, transforming business as usual into performance optimisation rather than simply holding-on.
In Brian’s book Stop the Bleeding you will learn how he achieved this transformation from risk to opportunity in his own business, and the upside he has delivered for others since. Stop the Bleeding originated from frontline leadership of the fallout following the Global Financial Crisis. Over a period of just six weeks, having gone from hero to almost zero and staring down the barrel of an unforeseen insolvency, an aggressive and ultimately successful one-million-dollars-per-month turnaround became his foundation for seeing, thinking, planning and acting differently in business.
