Warren Harmer is cultivator of great small businesses. He advises, consults and coaches new and operating small businesses to reach their potential, through his 2 businesses The Business Plan Company and Crecer. He also contributes regularly to businesses.com.au and flyingsolo.com and has published a book Business Planning for Small Business.
Warren started with a Ph.D in science, but fell into the world of small business by accident and in doing so discovered his passion. Now with experience owning and consulting to small businesses of 20 years, he likes to apply scientific methodology to show business owners how to get more from their businesses; looking objectively at businesses to see what is happening and applying first principles. In small business, outcomes reign over theory.
Warren believes practical, hands-on advice for small business owners is sorely lacking, since most ‘experts’ have never owned one. His objective is to offer instructive, ‘how to’ information to make ownership easier, less stressful and more enjoyable.
Warren works with business owners on the following types of projects:
* Business plans
* New business start up and set up
* Business analysis, review and advice
* Small business marketing
* Financial management
* System development
* Tenders and pitches
* Franchise development
* Ongoing coaching and consulting
