If so, then the 12 week Growthology Program is For You
Growthology is a culmination of my career over 30 years working in the international environment with SME companies at various levels, including as a Business Coach, CEO, GM, and variety of commercial mid management roles in my earlier years.
Program Content, with options
Module 1 = Business Model Review
This is an essential module for those who wish to join the Growthology program, as we need to look right across your Business Model at the start, to see what is working well and to identify “Focus Areas” that need priority attention moving forward.
Following the Business Model review, you then CHOOSE which Modules are most relevant for your business from:
M2 = Your Vision, Goals, Core Values.
To provide the core foundations for growth
M3 = Your Planning Platform
To provide a platform to capture, ignite, monitor, fine-tune, share, & delegate your Growth Plan. To make it really dynamic and not a plan that sits of the shelf gathering dust!
Our aim is not to throw out existing or previous plans, but to have a good look at them; refresh them; and incorporate the elements that are relevant into a dynamic planning tool that provides focus, tracking, and accountability.
M4 = Your Product/Service Offering.
To be truly market driven; to catch up; leap-frog; and stay ahead of the competition.
M5 = Your Market Selection.
To look closely at your current market choice(s) to validate & improve your situation.
To look at how you may expand your market choices – for better margin/less risk/sustainable growth.
M6 = Your Distribution Model.
To consider your options; select or refine appropriate model(s); and make serious in-roads into target markets with channels that are motivated & work for you!
M7 = Your Sales & Marketing.
To position and secure targeted customers and work; gain base load and momentum; with sensible pricing strategies.
M8 = Your Capability & Capacity Development for Growth.
To be ahead of the game with your funding requirements for growth and financial management; operations; human resource; and systems: all critical to support increasing levels of sales.
Within 12 weeks you will have a realistic, tailored and focused Growth Plan; you will quickly gain traction; you will progressively knock over those challenges; and you will have ongoing help to achieve your goals.
Choice of quality content. After a very modest cost for Module 1, you then choose and only pay for the Modules that are relevant for your business.

Some testimonials on what others have to say!
“Neil was my CEO of Glidepath Group for 6 years from 1997 to 2003, an extremely high growth and successful period for my company. Highlights were:
– his strategic approach to reposition our company to be a lead supplier and contractor in target markets with expert turnkey capability in our field of designers, manufacturers and installers of airport baggage handling and security systems in a global market.
– under Neil’s leadership we entered new markets in South America and Canada. Neil displayed his expertise in sales and marketing, high level negotiating and contracting a number of milestone projects at Vancouver, Toronto, Santiago and a whole string of other lesser but important airports.
– During his tenure he set us up for continuing international growth and success.
I can recommend Neil as an extremely competent marketing and exporting executive.”
Sir Ken Stevens KNZM – Chairman – Glidepath Limited
” I have been working with Neil on his 12 Week Growthology program, and can honestly say that I wish I had done something similar a long time ago. The on-line approach works great for me with plenty of flexibility and the program really gives me both direction and focus. It is not too time consuming for me and really digs into the aspects of my business that matter. Plus, the weekly catch up’s Q&A sessions with Neil are great to clarify any matters and to help keep me on track. Every time I talk with Neil I seem to walk away with another gold nugget and inspired.”
Barry Goodey – CEO – Goodham Services Ltd
“Neil is an extremely capable and proven leader in his field. Over a 3 year period, Neil was my General Manager/Vice President for North America, responsible for developing our strategic and operational approach – all resulting in winning our first projects in the North American market. Additionally, Neil took the lead role in positioning our company, negotiating and winning a multi-million dollar project in a related but new sector market for us in NZ. He is highly experienced; he inspires, and he delivers! “
Pat Teo – CEO BCS Group
“We brought Neil into our business in an advisory role about 18 months ago. Initially helping us to develop a 5 year strategic plan, he is now assisting us in executing it. His experience with taking NZ business to the world has been invaluable as we develop our export plan and take our business to the world.. Neil is a good fit with our organisation as his straight up and his no BS attitude is refreshing. I would recommend Neil and his “Growthology” program to anyone looking to expand their business internationally.”
Mike Hannah – Owner & Managing Director – Stormwater360
“Before we started working with Neil, we were far too broad in our approach and lacked focus. We were trying to get our product into many markets throughout the world, and as a relatively new start up company we had a very tight budget and limited supporting systems. With Neil’s advice and experience we were able to set our focus on our key target markets and industries, backed up with a sound business strategy and sensible systems. We are now seeing the results and have successfully come through the start-up phase and are now winning major projects overseas.”
