About Bill Winter

"I don't want an outsider telling me how to run my business." Yes , that is what I hear all the time.

So, what are you scared of? Or, are you frightened to think that there is someone out there who can actually work with you and genuinely wants to help families in business succeed.

I have developed a reputation as a trusted advisor to owners and leaders in privately owned business, a leadership mentor, a facilitator of internal conversations, and expert in developing and implementing family business advisory boards 

My extensive experience as a business owner, corporate CEO, consultant and member of a diverse range of boards enables me to enhance the decision making of  a family business by enabling business owners to surround themselves with people with different skill sets who can challenge the thinking and offer options for consideration.

 Together, our objective will be to support change and develop skills which will improve decision making, especially when it comes to meeting resistance, managing people, and moving  a higher level of performance.

"Working with Bill, I have made some significant changes to the way I operate within my business. I have a new enthusiasm for work and have the confidence to work on doubling the business over the next three year. I am no longer tied to the day-to-day routine tasks."  FA, Owner / director National Transport Co.

During my time in business I have made mistakes and also experienced both good and great times in a variety of business segments and every individual and organisation are different. It's all about the individual and not the coach/mentor.

"Bill is someone I can contact at anytime to test my ideas. I know he will throw up practical and workable options to consider. He challenges me and I trust him and his confidentiality."  GW, International Training Co

As we work through 2019, leadership and  succession/transition issues have been identified as important barriers to overcome.  Having been there myself  in our family business, I understand the internal emotions that run across all generations of family members and the importance of family conversations with all family members. My sibling and I lost a successful business because my father would not address a succession plan.

Most of my work is in assisting to resolve family conflict, ensuring there is a clarity of roles, getting agreement on the rules regarding individual behaviours and improving family communication. 

My experience includes CEO of subsidiaries of listed companies, facilitated company board strategic planning workshops, facilitated board working sessions on business strategy for family business and NFPs, been a board advisory member of family owned companies and board member in industries such as health, food business and agribusiness, engineering, construction and transport.

"During my management studies we were taught that a coach /mentor is someone who has the ability to inspire people, coach people, and help take them places that one would not dare to go on their own. You have enabled to go a place in leadership I never thought of before."  MP, CFO, Listed Company subsidiary

I rely on my business and personal experiences, knowledge, and people insights to add value to others. I don't always get it right, however, I know that success is determined by a desire to bring about change though individual effort.

"Thank you for all you have done for me and for believing in me. For the opportunities and the guidance and direction.. You have been a great mentor and advisor." LD, Auto Industry executive.
