It's not about us... It will always be about our Clients

Q2 Group

Business Coaching | Management Consulting | More …

Our Purpose is to help our clients build their businesses to succeed and thrive in a way that is enduring and sustainable.

Hi, I am Greg Hardwich and I confess I started the Q2 Group for selfish reasons.  There is nothing I enjoy more than spending my days helping our clients and their businesses succeed. I sleep very well at night in the knowledge that our customers businesses are thriving as their sales, profits and cash flows grow. When I wake up, I don’t worry, because I know that our clients are proactively building agile, resilient businesses, which will endure long after they sell or retire. I get a real kick out of knowing that our clients are operating sustainably by taking care of themselves, their families, staff, customers, community and the environment.

Yep, the happier our clients are… the happier I am. Some might say that we are lucky to have clients like these… our clients would say that it had little to do with luck.

Starting, building and operating a successful business has little to do with luck…

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, of the 299,123 new business entries during 2008-09, only 51% were still operating just three years later in 2012. A whopping 146,570 small businesses did not survive the first 3 years of operation.

Statistically only 10% of all small to medium businesses will survive the first 5 years of operation… of these, only 10% will survive the second 5 years of operation. For us at the Q2 Group, these odds are not acceptable!

Imagine: profitable growth, increased sales and cashflow; more time for yourself and your family; reduced costs and waist; and  operating in harmony with the community and environment…

Imagine the positive impact we can have on business owners, their families, their employees, their communities and the economy as a whole if we can increase the survival rate of small and medium businesses by 10%.

Imagine if we can help these businesses not only survive, but also succeed and thrive sustainably. By sustainably we mean that the business will succeed and thrive in a way that is lasting and sensitive to the communities and environment in which the business operates.

Imagine if we can get these businesses to work together to help each other to succeed and thrive sustainably?

Helping to make the world a better place, one business at a time…

A successful business has the power to do great things for their people, society and the environment. If we can help more businesses succeed, then in some small way we are able to make the world a better place. That in essence is our vision!

My expertise includes spearheading strategy, business development, operational performance, organisational performance and financial performance. I have extensive experience in launching, developing, managing, and selling successful small to medium sized businesses.

I am passionate about building lucrative and sustainable businesses, but my chief aim is to help my clients to develop the leadership and management capability to stop following the herd and take ownership of their own personal and professional journeys to business success.

No matter how clouded your vision, or big your plan, my #1 goal is to help you break through the obstacles holding you back from success and help you discover your natural state of professional and personal wellbeing.

My approach is asking the tough questions and not changing the subject when the heat is turned up. There is no magic bullet for business success but together we can discover what makes your business tick and what your potential clients REALLY expect.
