Australia in the mid-1980s was Internationally respected in Engineering & Construction and has the potential to achieve greatness again.
The cost of mediocre industry outcomes translates to an enormous waste of scarce time and money, derailed careers and lost opportunity. Small and medium businesses generate the energy and innovation that drives Australia’s economy – they must step up now!
About the Book
Australia’s engineering and construction industry is struggling to develop a coherent strategy for thriving in the modern world of technology-driven disruption and responding to the challenge of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
Small and medium businesses generate the energy and innovation that drives Australia’s economy.
This book will examine the “steel ceiling” that exists for these businesses in the infrastructure engineering and construction industry today.
It also gives readers the key to overcoming this barrier: in clear and actionable terms, with examples and stories from the industry, an effective methodology to grow sustainable businesses in this industry.
About the author
My experience in this sector spans over 30 years, working in roles as a consulting engineer, project advisor, executive manager and in recent years as a business coach for small and medium sized enterprises.
Business, like many of life’s challenges, is all about luck. Successful business people implement the right business model, work hard and smart and are well prepared for when they get lucky”.
Most small to mid-sized businesses competing for project work, are forced into an environment where they are usually small fish in a very large pond. While potentially a hostile environment and one where most business owners feel a lack of power in the supplier relationship, these lucky breaks are constantly bubbling away.
As a business advisor and coach specialising in this sector (working on both sides of the fence), I have a unique perspective that will genuinely provide you with practical insights to harness the opportunities in the sector, structure appropriately to benefit from them and build a business that scales and is sustainable into the future.
