Starting a family at 50 with the woman of my dreams.
Business Experience
First 23 years of work in the Clothing Industry. It was a family business started by my parents. During my time I did everything from cutting and sewing garments to sales and management. I learnt about time and motion, product costing, stock control, people management, financial reporting, system development, warehousing, negotiation, and a whole lot more.  It was a great grounding for what I do today.  In 1987 I sold the family business and after working for the new owner for two years I left and was offered a two year contract with a high profile Fashion Designer as his production manager.  After another two years I left and stated consulting.  During this time I created the model that was to become Brightwater Business Coaching.  While running the business for over twenty years, I have worked with hundreds of SMEs applying the Brightwater Business Development Program.
Why I enjoy working at Brightwater Business Coaching?
The team, the energy they create and seeing the outcomes for clients – all different and yet all the same!  I have a passion for what I do – Changing Business … Changing Lives.

Guiding start-up companies to present day major status, and the general management of a number of National Companies.
Business Experience
A lengthy period in Public Accounting with a Top 4 Firm, led to a move into the Commercial world as Chief Accountant for the Queensland operation of a National Company.  Next followed lengthy terms as Queensland General Manager of two Publicly Listed Companies, being responsible for the successful establishment of the latter. A shorter period in manufacturing led into a period as a Management Consultant, primarily in the field of the resurrection and restructuring of ailing businesses.  After being involved in the Public Listing of a start up company and assuming the role of General Manager Operations for three years, the opportunity arose to join Brightwater, and impart the wide range of accumulated business knowledge to the SME arena.

Building a successful business, working with great people and creating a secession model that is providing a sound future for my family
Why I enjoy working at Brightwater Business Coaching
The Brightwater Clarity and Focus Programs offer realistic platforms for development of ALL businesses. The personal achievement and success achieved by our clients during the course of the Brightwater Program provides me with a great sense of satisfaction for my contribution.
Business Experience
I was educated in Perth, graduating as an Accountant. I gained experience in the diversified fields of auditing & cost management, manufacturing, importing & wholesaling and general accounting practice.
In 1980 I established a printing and photocopying services company in Brisbane to cater for the mining and general office reporting industries. During the mid 1990’s the company initiated the QA process of systemization and documented procedures and was subsequently sold to a public company in 2000 with interests in providing out-sourced back-office administrative services. The company at the time of sale had grown to employ 55 staff operating at 3 locations in Brisbane.
I now manage a diversified consulting and investment business, whilst enjoying a balanced family life.
Outside of Brightwater - Personal Interests
Sharing with my family and friends in the activities of tourism and social entertainment, walking, golf, water sports, motor racing and of course AFL.
Life is always only ‘half full’.
