Business Essentials Success Stories
"I have worked with Geoff McDonnell as a business partner provider for over 12 years. During that time I have found that Geoff has an amazing ability to analyse and strategise business situations that are complex and articulate the situations in a very concise and simple way. His solutions are always well thought out and structured to be practical and can be used to immediate benefit. He is assertive in his approach but will also listen to alternative points of view making any business relationship clear without ambiguity. He is supportive and encouraging, reliable and ethical in all his dealings respecting confidentiality and protocols. I would have absolutely no hesitation in strongly recommending Geoff as a business adviser, coach or mentor to any organisation - corporate or small to medium - they would gain great value from the association."

"I met Geoff through his involvement with the Jim's Training Academy where he established a business training program for new inductees and existing businesses. Geoff has had an extensive corporate background and was able to bring this experience together with his professionalism to a challenging opportunity. I was impressed by Geoff's personal approach and the effort he put into organising and implementing his training programs."

"I have had many opportunities to see Geoff at work and to engage in conversation with him concerning independent business owners and the development of coaching and education for SME's. Geoff is a passionate advocate of delivering excellence in training, development and coaching of independent business owners and I would recommend his work and skills in delivering these programs without hesitation."

Testimonials from Business Essentials Audio Program listeners
"If it weren't for Business Essentials, I wouldn't be where I am today"
I'm sure my teachers never imagined that I would be running a highly profitable business when they encouraged me to leave school at 15 years of age. However after working in the food industry I developed a passion and wanted to start a business. Fortunately a friend introduced me to Business Essentials. From their monthly CDs I discovered all the critical information I needed to know about starting and running a business. Now 10 years later I have a number of very successful businesses that I started from just $5,000 on two credit cards. The Business Essentials CDs that I get each month are invaluable to my business and cover a wide range of topics that are of enormous benefit. I use the resource like a reference library, and I often refer to past interviews to give me the edge in business.
"A seminar in your car – every month"
I find the topics very relevant to our business on a day-to-day basis, and we also use it for training in the business. The best part is you get stories and information from people who have achieved these things, and it’s not just information coming out of a text book - it’s people who have had the experiences and tell it with a passion. I get to turn my dead time into productive time by listening in the car. It’s been great - I can’t recommend it highly enough.
"As an international business advisor, author and speaker I am constantly on the look-out for relevant, practical and straight to the point business wisdom. Business Essentials not only delivers all this each month, it also allows me to listen to these teaching while driving in my car. Every month I look forward to receiving my 'shot' of business wisdom, keep up the great work, you are an invaluable resource to me and my business."
Achievers Group Pty Ltd
"I love the program and will continue to subscribe. I spend a lot of time travelling in the car and it is a great way to keep up to date."
"I look forward to listening to the CD each month. I find it very inspirational and it helps me look at the big picture (ie. gives me ideas re how to work ON the business rather than IN the business)."
Transit Computer Systems
"Found it very good listening - interesting topics are dealt with. Doesn't go over the top and is grass roots stuff. I have raved to all my business associates about it and you should be inundated with subscriptions if they are forward thinking business people."
