As a highly experienced FBA Accredited Advisor, John has been deeply involved in advising family businesses and facilitating family groups since the early 1990s. Drawing on his own experiences from within a 3rd generation family business, he’s helped numerous family businesses build their legacy and reclaim their family lives.
Passionate about helping families create happier, stronger and more prosperous lives, his consultative, personal approach is centred on breaking down the common misconceptions about being a family-in-business. He works with families to build a collaborative environment, encourages open communication and helps families come to terms with generational change.
Widely recognised as a leading expert in the family business field, he regularly delivers workshops, seminars, lectures and presentations on family business, relationships and leadership. His personal understanding of the complexities of merging family and business life, helps him simplify those entanglements and provide practical solutions.
As a founding committee and board member in Victoria during the 1990s (before the FBA became a national body), he joined the Family Firm Institute (USA) to deepen his expertise in advising family business. Through FFI he gained both a Certificate and Advanced Certificate in Family Advising, and has since been honoured with a Fellowship of the Family Firm Institute. Since 2003 he has facilitated two family forum groups in Perth, specialising in family dynamics, generational change and solving problems for the long term positive future of a business.
Rounding out his knowledge and expertise across a broad range of strategic commercial, financial and organisational matters, since 2007 John also chaired two groups for The Executive Connection (TEC). There, he works with the CEO’s of companies ranging from $0.5M-$1.4B, is one of only two people in the last 30years to have received the Robert Norse Award in Australia, and for four years in a row has been honoured with a TEC Chair Excellence Gold Award.
