Speaker qualifications:

I understand what it takes to build a business successfully without spending money on unnecessary equipment, skills or any business related expenses and therefore maximising Consilia’s profit margins. I am qualified to give this presentation as I have over 25 years of experience as a chartered accountant. This gives me an excellent base to work from as well as the needed skills and knowledge on how to be a successful entrepreneur. I have a go-getter kind of approach to business and this allows me to never miss an opportunity when it comes to any entrepreneurial opportunity that crosses my path. These three key areas combined gave me the advantage I needed to build Consilia from the ground up in such a short period as well as funding the business myself with no bank debt.
