Stepping straight into 10 years of being an insolvency practitioner at EY Chartered Accountants, Jefferson Stevenson Charted Accountants and Vincents Chartered Accountants after university provided a comprehensive insight into managing businesses (over 300 in 10 years) and the reasons why business get into trouble.
The following 10 years in events, sport and tourism crossed the spectrum of financial, commercial and managerial (private and Government sectors) capability in a wonderful world based around events and sport culminating in leading the winning bid for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Various corporate engagements since that time have been spent with my business partner in 888X (a former university and EY buddy) helping business owners achieve their goals, or save them from losing it all.
"Stuart helped us with developing and implementing a strategic plan and practical initiatives to achieve the goals within that plan. On that journey to finalising the plan, they helped us review and refine our cost base, people, operational structure and business systems including some processes. Most particularly, we spent a lot of time analysing our go to market strategy and deriving additional revenue streams for growth. I have no hesitation in recommending Stuart and 888X."
- Ben Lee CEO of Gold Coast Cabs
