Praise

“I was introduced to Chris when a business venture I was involved in went looking for another partner to help us launch a new concept into the recruitment market. Chris soon became the driving force ensuring that we established a company with all the correct infrastructure to operate within the appropriate rules and at the best possible value for money, which was essential since there was no income during the start-up phase of the business. The partnership relied heavily on Chris’ expertise in this area and we found both his business guidance and creative input most valuable.  I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone needing a focused, professional and sincerely engaged business consultant to bring the proper rigor to their business projects.”

Andrew Rickard, Recruitment Manager, Austrade

“I started working with Chris when I was at the beginning of building up my online business. I hadn’t even built my website yet. I was so overwhelmed with the complexities of everything that I was ‘ready to stick a fork in my eye.’ Chris came in like a proverbial white knight on an internet horse and has helped me set up all of my online systems, structures and website. I am deeply grateful to Chris for his extensive knowledge, skills, his patience and good humour and his ability to execute tasks whilst making it look beautiful. Thank you Chris for keeping my sanity intact!”

Courtney Maria Halsted

“I have had the pleasure of working with Chris during the start up of a consulting business. During this time Chris’s role (Director of Admin & Finance) was pivotal to the planning process. Chris’s eye for detail and methodical approach was key to the company’s launch and ongoing success, his ability to think out side the box is both refreshing while offering an educated perspective. I have no hesitation in recommending this talented individual.”

James Darling, Managing Director, Next Move Consulting

“Chris has an unusual capacity to look at a given situation from a range of different perspectives in order to develop a comprehensive strategic overview. He often surprises me with his original ideas on “what is really going on” — and this very often leads to creative and effective responses. Chris is also one of the most productive people I’ve ever worked with, and has a remarkable ability to stay focused on a task.”

Josh Floyd, Deputy Chair, CERES Community Environment Park
