Greg is a successful entrepreneur, having started a business in the irrigation industry in 1978 and run it for 12 years, before selling it to enter the business advisory field. Since selling that business, Greg has worked as a manager in the computer manufacturing and retailing industry, as a consultant for a Big 4 Accountancy firm and established and sold his own accountancy / bookkeeping practice. Greg decided to concentrate solely on helping small business owners to get better results from their businesses in 1995.
Over the past 14 years, Greg has built a business consultancy practice which was started in Australia and had consultants operating in both New Zealand and the USA. Greg developed a proprietary business development system which achieved major breakthroughs for every business owner who used the system, helping them to greatly increase profits and increase their personal freedom from their businesses. These strategies have now been refined and distilled into the book, Put Your Business on Autopilot and are used in the Business Flightpath programs. Greg is also a mentor to business coaches and accounting professionals who provide business development and strategic advice to small to medium size business owners.

Back in his days as a university student Max was known as the guy to go to when you needed advice about anything. He was also an entrepreneur interested in electronics and started his first business at 23 making lighting control systems. Over the next few years he followed a technology path with various organizations both in the UK and NZ, culminating in starting his second company back in NZ in 1984 as a telecommunications consultant. Over the next few years his company developed a highly successful software programme for managing corporate computer networks which was sold to many of NZ’s largest companies.
In 1990 Max sold his company and began working with Telecom initially as a consultant, then in a marketing role as a channel manager, and finally as a major accounts manager. In 2000 the entrepreneur in Max asserted itself again and he bought a computer rentals franchise.
He trained in 2004 as a leadership and personal development coach providing individual programmes to corporate executives. At the same time he continued with consulting assignments in sales and marketing for IT sector clients, and in 2005 joined a larger business coaching organisation as a business coach, focusing on SME’s, where he assisted several clients to achieve huge steps forward in their business development. Max has now been practicing as a business development coach for the past 4 years and once again derives great pleasure from helping others to grow their businesses.
In addition to the core consulting SWAT team, Business Flightpath works with technical specialists in the areas of Business Systems Development, HR, IT and Finance. This is an unbeatable combination of talent ready to be let loose on your business – an unbeatable proposition compared to using a single business coach.
