SUCCESS 'ALWAYS LEAVES A GAP TO FILL'

SUCCESS 'ALWAYS LEAVES A GAP TO FILL'

NO MATTER how successful, lucrative or innovative a business might be, there is always an identifiable gap to fill, says corporate strategist Daniel Want.

“The most powerful things in the world are usually the most simple,” says Want, whose talent lies in finding modern solutions for age-old business problems including exit strategies and creating value.

“The fastest way I know to build any business is to build the key people within that business,” he says.

Want, who heads Brisbane-based Prerequisite Capital Management and Hookshot Commercial Innovation, has an extensive background working with high end investment portfolios, notably employed as a strategist for a major Australian global macro hedge fund which successfully anticipated and navigated the global financial crisis.

These days he is applying his corporate experience to the needs of small to medium business owners looking to get an edge on their competitors.
“Taking a professional investment view of a business helps to broaden your perspectives of how you design strategy in the context of the broader economic and technological environment,” says Want.

This month, the entrepreneur will be sharing his experiences at the Practical Strategy seminar series to be held on the Gold Coast across four consecutive Mondays.

“It has been a while since I have taught these things in a workshop setting, but I teach these things every day to business partners and people I'm working with.”

Want says those who choose to engage with his event will be spared a lecture in theory and instead will be offered a tried and tested practical approach to business improvement, something he believes to be a key ingredient to successful entrepreneurship.

“Quite simply there is no ‘academic theory’ in this course, as these seminars equip business leaders with practical principles, techniques and tools to effect and sustain change and success in the real-world,” he says.

“I learned many of these techniques from highly experienced and successful business people and have also applied all of these things successfully myself.”

Beginning on November 10 at the Broadbeach Sofitel, Want will be sharing his experience and advice in the realms of strategy and leadership ideal for small-to-medium businesses. 

Included in the price of a Practical Strategy ticket is a 45-minute one-on-one follow-up session with Want, a complementary business strategy review session by a seasoned entrepreneur, a health check of your current bookkeeping and accounting systems, a business opportunity analysis review and a second opinion service by a finance professional.

Tickets for the four seminar course are available for purchase via the ‘Practical Strategy’ page on Eventbrite at $348.
