Consulting: The next wave?


Turn Your Experience Into A Successful Business

The business world is constantly changing – that’s one thing that we can all agree on. Powerful disruptive trends like globalisation and cloud-based services are threatening traditional business models and the need for fresh solutions is increasing every day. Now more than ever, the Australian private and public sectors are looking to expert consultants for specialist advice, service, and support in all areas.

According to a recent report by Forrester, The Future of Consulting Through 2020* 58 per cent of decision-makers intended to increase their spend on business consultants by at least 5 per cent in 2016, and 23 per cent planned a budget increase of at least 10 per cent. With the emergence of bold new players and rise of boutique, on-demand consulting services, Australia’s consulting industry has grown to US$4.4 billion**. Businesses are looking for fast, flexible, customised solutions for their needs. Could you be a part of the solution?

Capitalise On Your Expertise – Help Australian Business Grow

Proven Business Consultants Australia recognise the value of experience, and want to see professionals contributing their experience to Australian businesses in meaningful ways. The Directors of PBCA, Owen Watson and Catherine Bell, run their own successful consulting practices and have discovered the professional fulfilment, satisfaction and flexible lifestyle choices that have opened up to them as a result. Now, they are sharing their first-hand knowledge of what it takes to run a great consulting business with select professionals from all industries.

Proven Business Consultants Australia (PBCA)

In a 24-month all-inclusive program, participants including CEO, CFO, or COO level, through to Company Directors and Senior Management should be looking to leverage their experience into a niche consultancy business.

The PBCA Program

The 40-day workshop program is delivered in intensive blocks of 10 days per quarter, providing you with the roadmap to success and the tools needed to turn your specialist experience into a profitable and marketable consultancy business. Each workshop is tailored to complement your existing skillset and give you the confidence to strike out on your own, and create a life of your design.

Throughout the entire workshop series and for a full 12 months after workshop completion, you will have personal support by phone and email. PBCA will also take care of the finer details like your website, business cards, professional headshots and more. In addition, you will be supported with your website and marketing for the full program term, with a team of IT experts to get you up and running and maintain your web presence and business as it grows.


What Makes This Program Unique?

In running their own practices, the program Directors have discovered what works (and what doesn’t!) – in the modern consulting environment. Owen and Catherine have seen colleagues and competitors come and go, and realised that expertise is simply not enough – consultants need to know how to start and run a sustainable small business that works for their life, if they want their practice to succeed.

They have created an executive-level program based on real life experience and partnered with some of Australia’s best independent business owners to deliver a unique learning experience and fill this need.

Join this highly recommended program and make the most of your experience in your own consulting practice.
