SBMS Business Mentor
Alan founded and then ran a leading corporate event production business for more than 40 years. When he established the business at the age of 31 in 1975, he had an old MGB car, Kodak slide projector and tripod production screen.
When he sold the business to a large national company in 2016, Alan had 70 staff across four Australian states.
Alan has built a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of running a small to medium business from the ground up, and the need to update technology. His expertise extends to sales, marketing, project management, event production, event management, finance, accounting, HR and IT.
Over the years, Alan developed a strong understanding of SMEs and the problems that arise from month to month and year to year. He developed many strategies to deal with them and to grow profitability.
“In the early days I made a lot of mistakes - but kept slowly progressing towards success,” he says. “Over those years I learnt a lot, and my goal now as a business mentor is to help other small business people overcome some of the road bumps that they encounter as they move forward. My passion is to help other small businesses along that pathway.”
