Challenging the status quo is what Simon does. He helps people and organisations achieve their potential to a degree that might be difficult for some to fathom. His specialty is providing alternatives, some of which come from completely different industries, and often involve adopting techniques that challenge currently accepted business philosophies.
This is why he loves the quote “The future is here, it is just not evenly distributed.” This means that the answer to your problem already exists, but perhaps not in the place where you expect to find it. It’s all about being inquisitive and having the courage to explore other options.
Simon is a supply contracting strategist, working closely with some of Australasia’s largest companies to generate a step change in their costs and outcomes. He has worked with top tier global mining operations as well as Australian Blue Chip and government organisations, and has established global contracts that are worth anywhere from a couple of million dollars to multi-billions of dollars.
Another one of his favourite quotes is: “If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got” – and he applies this principle to just about everything he does. His greatest satisfaction comes from designing and implementing supply contracts that unlock true potential, delivering a significant change in value and profitability.
Just imagine what your business could achieve if you unlock the value the others waste!
