Welcome

 

I established Auspex Ventures to help company founders and leadership teams critically evaluate their organisation, agree purpose and direction, and then scale a business that their customers value.

I have been involved in establishing a number of high growth enterprises, and their teams, from the ground up. I spend my time as an advisor, mentor, non-exec, and chairman for companies that I believe have something exciting and positive to offer the world. 

I value simplicity - making common sense, common practise.
