Meet Barry Spanger – your new business coach

I’m a business veteran – with a track record to prove it

When you work with me, you benefit from my 40+ years of practical business and leadership experience – and my MBA too.

I’ve transformed a number of SMEs into large, successful corporations. For example, I once owned and helped a small South African business grow into the country’s largest supplier of air conditioning parts. And later after moving to Melbourne, I turned a local, home-based vending machine business into the state’s leading independent operator.

Guidance you’ll actually apply

My clients choose to work with me because I understand the realities that small businesses face. I speak your language – and offer smart, sensible guidance that you can actually apply.

So if you’re after wishy-washy, airy-fairy ‘advice’, I’m not your guy. After all, what’s the point of a great idea without the clear and practical steps to make it happen?

Expertise across all business functions

My clients often ask me how I maintain such a clear focus and balanced perspective.

It’s because of this: I have deep knowledge and experience in all key business areas. From financial management and planning to staffing, sales and marketing – I’m across it all.

What’s more, I know how to synchronise all these facets for optimal business performance.

More than a respected business person

It goes without saying that you want to work with people who are good at what they do. But don’t you also want to be around people you genuinely like and respect? I know I do.

‘Business person’ isn’t all that defines me. I’m also a friend, husband, father and grandfather – known by all for my warm, friendly manner, direct approach and wicked sense of humour.
