Importance of a Great Team

For rapid and sustainable growth David believes you need a great team and it’s one of the areas of business in which David excels. Recruiting the right team members and creating a great team environment is one of David’s specialties. It’s an area in which he has helped businesses in many different industries turn their fortunes around, so that they could become more proactive, productive and profitable.

“You want to have a team that are enthusiastic about building the business for you, so that your business has great customer service, is dynamic, flexible and able to rapidly respond to market changes and has a culture of efficiency and innovation. These are the things that make growth happen at lightening speed.”


Seminars and books will give you the theory, it’s the actions you take, the work you do and the way you do it that gets you the real results when it comes to leveraging the success of your teams for business growth.

A Student of Business Improvement

Which is why David is an avid student of business improvement, strategy and expansion, team dynamics and inter-personal relationships. Having spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars in the pursuit of knowledge and experience in these areas David strives to be across those areas of business where even the smallest improvements have the greatest impact on results.

That means that when you work with David to create your own inspirational team you get all of his knowledge and experience assisting you in a very directed and focused way.

But “Having all the information is just the start, getting it implemented is where most businesses fall short”.

When you’re working hard & fast and the days are long, getting the information you need is challenging enough. Then there’s the question of how and when things are going to get done.

Prioritisation – Your Key To Time Management

David helps business owners discover which Time Management habits they have that need to be streamlined to shift them into stronger leadership behaviours and give them the edge. He has changed lives with simple adjustments that have had profound effects and given many business owners more time.

Though when you have more time, you could just let it get swallowed up by your business again or you could use it to get more strategic.

What Other Business Owners Say about David Guest

[blockquote cite=”Simon Gishus, Owner, Nizpro Turbocharging”]
I was very dissatisfied with my business and life. I needed help. When I met David Guest he was calm and clear about what he could offer my business. He made sense and did not try to sell me anything.

David Guest is a trusted sounding board so I feel supported. We work well together because I’ll give it a go and he gives me structures and systems that have turned my business into a successful business and allowed me to achieve personal goals too. His follow-up keeps the momentum and holds me accountable. He offers a completely different experience that has trained me to think about how I use my time and what I do in the business.

The impact of coaching and David on my life, family and business is large. My gross profit increased by 400% in 12 months. I’ve changed how I think about work. I now make my good ideas happen and have started a whole new line of business that has documentation, a marketing strategy and training is priced at its true market value. I would have not done this without David. Now I enjoy going to work, I enjoy our customers and I enjoy going home.

[blockquote cite=”Maxine Auld, Toot Toot Toys”]
We were just starting out in business and doing well, but needed focus and direction.

Profit Mastermind has been fantastic in providing ideas. The group sharing experiences, both good and bad, has helped us identify areas we can work on.

Our costs are decreasing and sales increasing. What more could we ask for. Each meeting we come away feeling enthused and focused. It is the best money we have spent at twice the cost!
