PORTFOLIO ENTREPRENEUR + INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COACH
Since 2005, I have worked with more than 300 active growth businesses in Australia and the UK (where I have alternated my time), North America and Asia. My clients are private enterprises generating $1.5m-$17m in annual revenue, who average 30% revenue or profit growth working with me (depending on which is their focus).
INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS ADVISOR + RECESSION-ERA EXPERT
The Business you had at the start of 2020 is not the business you will have at the end of the COVID-19 Recession.
How you respond now will determine whether you Dive, Survive, or Thrive between today and the end of 2021. My theme right now: Don't Waste a Good Recession.
I remember my first recession as a business coach, working in London and across Europe and North America during the global financial crisis. While today may seem unprecedented, experience has given us a roadmap to the other side and continued success.
This experience makes me one of the youngest advisors working in Australia to have actually helped small and medium-sized businesses (from $750,000 - $20 million) grow through a Recession. Based in Brisbane, Australia, I continue to work with and learn from companies around the world.
Business advisor, Professional speaker, published author, world-traveller, TV-show host, podcaster, Guinness World Record holder, amazing father and loving husband.
I live an outrageous life, by helping others to do the same.
I'm the smart and quirky business guy
who wants to to improve your life.
HOW COACHING WORKS
Pure business coaching is a waste of money.
Today, the term "business coach" just means "generic, unqualified consultant". Would you prefer something different?
From Recession experience to a Comprehensive Business Methodology, I'm the different you need.

Some business people share "endorsements", "testimonials", or "what people are saying". Me? I'm shameless - I love being praised, and I love sharing the love.
“The value that Jacob added to our business is twofold. He lives the bigger game bringing a strong strategic perspective together with the ability to build process and structure to support the implementation of the strategy. Secondly his energy – he is always happy, always sees the positive and always happy to get his sleeves rolled up and get stuck in. He is a real asset to any business that has a passion to grow and make a difference.”
“Jacob’s energy is boundless and his coaching capability immense. He is also a man of many talents. He was instrumental in devising and introducing our new newsletter across the business which has now touched several hundred of my clients and enabled me to connect with new friends. I value Jacob for the positive difference he has made for my business.”
Jim Henderson, Management Consultant,
Harrison James Partnership
“His motivation and dedication are second to none and his personal and communication skills are really superb. I would recommend Jacob to anyone who wants to have absolute confidence that things – and the right things – will get done; and have a good time doing it.
Our only complaints remain his choice of jokes and ties.”
John Rosling, CEO,
