Installers

Below is a collection of posts showing the work I do with installers, which includes:

  • Dealing with clients and winning more work.
  • Managing cashflow, simplifying their business and “getting ahead”.
  • Training their staff and getting off the tools.


In recent times, much of the focus has been around industry-wide issues such as surface preparation methods and navigating through the new Australian Cert III qualification.
