Your guide & teacher

My name is David Carruthers and I've spent more than 35 years involved in the hospitality industry running large groups including being headhunted from London to Melbourne to be CEO of Australia's second-largest group. I spent more than a dozen years as an entrepreneur & multiple business owner becoming a multi-millionaire, building my own group.

I was the elected president of my business chamber for 4 years and asked to found & chair a tourism association, developing a strategy with the government over a 2 year period. I've spent many years advocating for SMEs and helping them grow.

I learnt about wellbeing when I was the subject of some events that created so much stress my organs started to close down, being hospitalised 5 times in 12 months, almost losing my life in late 2013. My wellbeing cup emptied and the result of all this cost me several million dollars and I may not have been here to even tell the story.

I am here though... to share with you some smart strategies to help you navigate a path towards your desired goals and to also add some bonus value with some pretty cool strategies to boost your wellbeing.

What you'll learn...

My aim, during this live masterclass (recording will be available if you register, but miss the live class) is to show you how to work smarter, not harder, so your business grows and your life thrives:-

1. Understanding your current performance and the opportunities in your marketplace

2. Identifying your most profitable customers & products

3. Creating a level of uniqueness that eliminates competition

4. Developing your business model so it constantly adapts to its environment

5. Creating a leadership team that runs your day-to-day business & frees up your time

6. Learning how to refill your wellbeing cup for greater happiness

7. Develop a plan for "what to do next..."

Following the presentation, I will be available for a question & answer (Q&A) session.
