There are many many things that can be done to build a better business, but Tony has a simple beginning point:

A simple question…but a complex problem for many. This is key issue that Tony resolves:

“I get more customers
for my customers”

Business Adviser to the Advisers

Speaker.

Professional. Practiced. Proficient. Positioned. Personalised.
That’s what you get from every engagement with me, whether that is as a conference speaker, running workshops or delivering training sessions. Renowned for delivering high paced & information packed presentations that are fun – but with lots of practical takeouts for audiences. I don’t just talk about value. I deliver it every time.

Thinker.

I see the world differently to other professionals, and think differently. Strategic insight into how the changes in consumers, technology, marketing and delivery of professional services can result in doing business differently – and better – creates different options for professionals who are looking ahead.

Perhaps the greatest strength is the ability to help define and articulate points of difference that matter – creating value propositions that deliver meaningful positioning and messages to target markets.

Coach.

A great coach has the technical knowledge and competencies to be able to understand quickly where effort or resources  are best applied to achieve extraordinary results.  Balancing up the capability, capacity and opportunity issues of the practice, together with the resources, budgets and desire of the practitioners results in strategies that can work without creating stress.  They also have the skill and acumen to understand what your values, beliefs, strengths and weaknesses are – and how to work with them to achieve the greatest result.

What to do when team members are under-performing
by Tony Vidler        Inevitably there will be a time when one or some of your team are under-performing.  Not under-performing to the point where the decision to terminate them is actually quite easy, but under-performing to the point where it is just aggravating because you just feel that they should be doing better. Figuring […]
