When I first met Zac seven years ago, I knew I had a good business idea but I was struggling with the execution. My online education business was in the red and I was unsure how to proceed. To be honest, I was dubious about working with a business coach and wasn’t convinced they would add value but I am pleased I took Zac’s advice because he has turned my business around.
In five years, with Zac’s guidance, Career Academy has gone from 5 staff to become a company with 85+ staff in more than 4 countries around the world and an annual turnover of more than $10m. Two years in a row The Career Academy made the top the Deloitte Fast 50, among New Zealand’s fastest growing businesses. Zac’s strategic advice was a real game-changer and a catalyst for turning our business around. He really focused on our sales funnel – getting the funnel working, driving more leads and converting those leads. He also guided us to getting the product mix right.
The great thing about Zac is he can be very strategic and think big picture but he also has amazing day-to-day tactical ideas that make a difference as well. He has helped me in establishing a management team that now functions cohesively, as well as personally helping me develop as a leader. Zac holding me accountable has really helped my own performance and focus and this has impacted big as well.
Working with Zac has been the game changer my business needed.
