He’s worked his magic for countless successful businesses, and now all his experience and talent is available for you to use. There’s no need to keep guessing or experimenting about how to make your business grow – instead you can rely on proven methods from a hands-on Advisor.
With Brod’s book you’ll be able to put together a winning team and set it to work on achieving your company’s goals – goals that you decide. Your business will run more efficiently and leverage its assets for maximum impact. You’ll find the profitable customers you want – and turn them into evangelists for your business. If you have a successful business and you want to watch it grow, Lessons From A Chief Business Advisor is one book you can’t afford to miss.
Have you managed to build a successful small business, but can’t see the way to expand it to the next level? Are the skills that brought you this far struggling to take you further? Is it a real challenge to find, motivate and keep the people you need – and persuade the ones you don’t need to move on? Are you unsure how to develop the plan that will take you into a great future?
If this sounds like where your business is right now, this book is what you’ve been waiting for.
It might not feel like it sometimes, but you’re not alone. The world’s top business leaders have all been where you are – sometimes just a few years ago. They all reached a point where they needed to change the way they did things to push their companies into a higher league. If you’re good at what you do, it’s possible to build a thriving small business on your own. Turning that into a medium-sized business needs some different skills, though, and when you’re already busy it can be hard to develop those skills.
In a career going back three decades Brod Ivory has seen a lot of companies hit a turnover of around a million dollars a year, then struggle to grow beyond that. More importantly, he’s worked with many of them as they break out and expand to their full potential. He knows what works and what doesn’t; he’s learned from experts, and refined those lessons with the results of his own huge experience. Combining hands-on knowledge with formal professional qualifications, Brod has become one of Australia’s most talented business boosters.
Brod believes that the key to greater business success is to move beyond managing and become a leader. You’re great at running the company you’ve created, but how are you at the things that need to be done to take it onwards and upwards? Things like these:
- Recruiting the best people for your team – then training and nurturing them so they deliver peak performance.
- Mastering your finances, so you can turn bookkeeping into a growth engine.
- Turning your Marketing into an investment.
- Building a customer service operation that will have profitable clients queuing outside your doors.
- Setting achievable long-term goals, and reliably achieving them.
- Being the leader you’ve always known you could be.
These are all things the average business consultant can’t teach you, but if you really want to go places you need to master them. Brod Ivory has – and in his ground-breaking new book, Lessons From A Chief Business Advisor, he’s condensed all his skills into a business guide that’s a roadmap for your success.
Brod Ivory is a Chief Business Advisor to ambitious business owners wanting to scale their companies. Over the past two decades, he has helped hundreds of fast-growing companies navigate the sometimes perilous journey of business growth.
With a career that’s already spanned over three decades, Brod has seen it all. He’s worked with businesses that range from local tradies to giant multinationals, at every level you can imagine. His work has taken him into practically every sector of the economy both within Australia and around the world. Along the way he’s watched people try a lot of things that worked, and a lot that didn’t.
Brod Ivory assisted our company for 3½ years both as a business specialist and then as CEO. During this time HES implemented many, many positive initiatives that would not have happened without Brod’s guidance and expertise. Working with Brod we acquired another business and opened a startup Winch business, both of which are proving very successful. Additionally, Brod brought a management & marketing focus to our company that will serve HES into the future and make us a far better business. Brod’s involvement with HES has been a great learning experience for the team. We now know what it takes to run a successful business.Christine Holm – Owner and Finance Director – Hoisting Equipment Specialists Pty Ltd
I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for me. I know you said you make yourself available to your clients but you have dragged me up that business hill by the scruff when I couldn’t see the road ahead.
In the short time we have worked together I am seeing the fog lift and I’m very excited to walk down a successful road. You have gone way above my expectations and I just want you to know that I appreciate the time and support you have given me and my business.
Looking forward to working with you in 2016.Elle Gerasimou-Owner- Heavenly Retreat
Brod Ivory has been a great resource for the building of our business. He became involved at a crucial time as we were growing very fast, and quickly needed to implement several elements at a level where we lacked experience. Brod helped us to build and develop in the areas of Admin, HR, Accounting, OH &S, Recruitment, Marketing, and most importantly strategy planning. Brod’s experience and wisdom, combined with his enthusiasm to see us do well meant that he offered us great value at a critical time. I would strongly recommend his services to any small business that wants to grow and become profitable.Miles Campbell – Managing Director – Teacher Training Australia
We are so pleased that we took the plunge and signed up with Brod Ivory almost 2 years ago now. It was a huge decision and a big cost to our small business, but it’s certainly one that has paid off tenfold.
Brod has given us the tools, confidence and support to take our business to the next level and then beyond. We are so grateful for his expertise and knowledge and how he applies it to our specific business.
We love Brods open door policy. Our interactions are not limited to our fortnightly meetings but he’s always available on the phone, email or face-to-face at the time we need the help or answers.
Before we started using Brod we were a ’2 man band’ struggling to get the work done, find more work and pay the bills…..we never imagined paying ourselves an actual wage and just lived off what was left (if any!). Now we run 7 full-time employees and pay ourselves every week.
Brod has been invaluable in helping us create a clear vision for our business and plan for the future. We would not hesitate in recommending him to any business wishing to take the next step and are so grateful that he’s an asset to ours.Paul & Brooke Sommers - Owners - Evoke Kitchens & Bathrooms
In May 2010, we sought professional assistance from Brod Ivory to help us identify gaps in our processes in order to facilitate our growth successfully. Although our company has been very successful for the past 17 years and we have very good processes in place, there were gaps in our system that led to problems that we constantly struggled to clarify and overcome. With Brod’s assistance and guidance, we identified the areas that we needed to improve and as a result we also implemented additional systems that are now running smoothly.
In my role as Director and owner of the company, I was continually being involved with the day-to-day activities which did not allow me to spend my time more effectively on the business. With our new systems in place this has changed and other people are now accountable for these activities. I feel much more in control and up to date with all areas of my company. Brod has been an integral part of our company for eight months and has provided us with effective strategies and tools that we use on a daily basis. I would highly recommend Brod’s services to anyone wanting to increase their business, reduce their stress levels and have a firm grip on every part of their company.Dr Mary Casey – CEO – Casey Centre
