Although qualifying as a civil engineer in the 1960's he has found the transition into property development, investment products and then financial advising a simple one.

Darryl's presentations to the industry are about maximising the potential in your business to create greater value at the back end.

He will share the experience and knowledge required to take the 6 vital steps to success, with the ultimate goal. Locking in the right buyer at the right price years before you wish to exit.

How true is the old saying, "You can't see clearly with sweat in your eyes". Many of us spend all of our valuable time working in our business and not on it. Often we don't realise we are building a business which should be serving us and not the reverse. The ultimate goal for all business people is the exit, the closer you are to it, the more important it becomes.

This presentation will give you a valuable insight into how very entrepreneurial business people maximise revenue, capital value and residual income from their financial planning business.
