The highest accolades should be given to Walman for choosing you..”

Phil Davis, Precision Accounting, Sydney, New South Wales, AUS

“Bernie, is a proven Business coach. He has excellent skills in developing mainstream business and strategy. Comprehensive knowledge in all areas. Bernie gets things done.”

Selwyn Hester, Leeton, New South Wales, AUS

“Bernie continues to keep us on track as follows;

  • Guiding our financial reporting requirements
  • Helping manage and stabilize our cost base, particularly COG's, to turn around project profitability, providing 'outside the business' insights as to where the leakage is coming from
  • Assisting us to put in place well thought out strategies to turn our net profit around from an unsustainable position
  • Guiding in making critical decisions in relation to staffing
  • Giving us someone close enough to the business, from a Board level, that is not part of the family, who the staff trust and take direction and mentoring from
  • Mentored the establishment and training of a leadership team, to alleviate pressure and time from the owners
  • Providing the means for the Board to step a level up above the operational day to day of the business to brainstorm, test, prioritise and implement critical business strategy and future succession planning
  • Tightening up loose processes and procedures
  • Giving the Board someone to be genuinely accountable to
  • Stopping us from making hasty strategic decision that may not be needed in the short term and could be costly to the business…helping us to focus on what really matters
  • Bringing clarity to our 1, 3 and 5 year plans, and continually testing them to see if they hold true

“A lot of things we do with Bernie we would struggle to focus on, and putting aside the time to do, if he was not a part of our team. Probably one of the most valuable assets we have made this year.”

Ian J, Fleetwood Urban, Sydney, New South Wales, AUS

“Bernie, I personally would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your leadership, passion, committal and determination to move AMS and Allegro forward in 2017.

We are very much looking forward to your return in 2018.”

Stephen P., Active Mobility Services, Sydney, New South Wales, AUS

“Bernie is helping to set up and implement process and procedures and building a winning culture.

Jacob Crutcher, CW Systems, Sydney, New South Wales, AUS

“Not just telling us, but Bernie is assisting and working with staff to get results.”

Garth R, Robertson Walls & Ceilings, Vancouver, B.C. CAN

“A fantastic session - made a lot of ground in getting the right people in the right seats - not something that is always easy to do, when it is family or friends, but an external consultant can do it. Also moving forward on individual sales KPIs etc, something we have struggled with.”

Terry P, Foodcare Systems, Leeton, New South Wales, AUS

Russell F, Rapid Spray, Singleton, New South Wales, AUS

“The coach has a thorough understanding of the business and has been great keeping us accountable. The biggest benefit I have found is we are more willing to take calculated risks to improve the business because of the thorough analysis that is being conducted. Bernie has set some high expectations for the sales team which they have individually agreed on, these stretch targets are putting pressure on other departments to step up the pace to ensure overall success. There is a real buzz about the place.”

Lloyd D, Maxim Office Supplies, Leeton, New South Wales, AUS

“I am very pleased with Bernie & the professional way he presents himself. He treats our business with much interest & care. Staff now know we are serious about business development & they themselves feel accountable.”

His ability to assess, construct strategy and influence change is well documented in his career, having led several organizations to great success. The relationships he fosters are sincere and lifelong. He is passionate about people and connects on a level that brings out the very best from those around him. With excellent communication skills at C level or line level, he shares the vision and brings it to life with results that surpass even the highest of expectations.”
