Your virtual CFO

Profile

Hi, I am Greg Harrison, CA, Entrepreneur and Author.


I have developed skills over a long career that allow me to be a problem solver and value creator.


My work experience has covered a range of industries;


  • Oenology & Viticulture
  • Transport
  • Manufacturing
  • Import/Export
  • Fashion
  • Hospitality and Hotels
  • Lagre Scale (Stadium Level) Event management
  • Tech startups (both clients and my own)


I have distilled all this experience into my own program which I use to assist clients in looking at their business in a new way, with the emphasis on finding the gaps or bottle necks that create revenue/profit leaks or impediments to growth. It is called the C.H.I.C.K 3C’s approach.


  • Cash is King
  • Have what you can get rid of
  • Invest well
  • Communicate & Communicate again
  • Keep it simple stupid
  • Control
  • Compliance
  • Contribution


Inevitably it will be one of the above areas stopping you achieving your goals. I work from home for a small number of clients at any given time which allows me to have a competitive fixed price fee structure. You will undoubtedly get a more personalised attentive service that delivers more.

Services

Virtual CFO

Our virtual CFO service offers a tailored approach to your financial needs, providing comprehensive insights and strategic guidance that is responsive and reliable. Not all business require or can afford a full time CFO or FC but still need this guidance “on tap”, often to be the “adult” in the room to ensure your KPI’s are right and governance is being done correctly.

Startups

Having successfully created our own startups as well as advised on many others we have the expertise to assist you to create the roadmaps to ensure you have the right road map in place to efficiently grow your business.

Forensics

Do you ever feel your numbers are not quite adding up, or you have that gut feeling that something isn’t quite right? Then as with all things in life, trust your gut feeling, even if it is to get peace of mind. Having studied forensic accounting and even written a novel on the subject, we can take a closer look at your books and systems to see if in fact anything is not right.

Due Dilligence and Valuations

Looking at acquiring a new business or need a valuation, that is our speciality. Let us kick the tyres of the business or provide you with a valuation of your existing business so that you can conduct negotiations and not leave money on the table.

Business Intelligence & Data Insights

We are experts in Excel, Power BI nd AI. Our skills in data preparation, analysis and presentation can ensure you are getting the most out of your data.

Costings & Variance Analysis

When was the last time you updated your costings or analyzed your actual margins and breakeven point. Do you know your contribution margins, average costs, marginal costs, labour efficiencies, wastage statistics? All these things are key to making effective business decisions. These are practical KPIs we can put in place to ensure your business is as efficient as possible.

Staging Your Business

When it comes time to think about exiting your business, it will need to be staged in its best light, much like staging a home for sale. We can prepare a package that includes any or all of the following;

  • Writing a brochure telling the story of your business and highlighting its growth
  • Systemising any part of your business so that it appears less reliant on your input as an owner operator.
  • Preparing a due dilligence report to ensure any issues that could reduce the sale price are identified and rectified
  • Value the business
  • Working with the business broker and potential purchasers to ensure the smooth transition of ownership.

Client Reviews

I have known Greg for many years, and still his ability to grasp complex scenarios and break them down into simple concepts amazes me. His skills in developing systems and solutions to enhance the productivity and reporting capabilities is a skill that makes Gregory an asset to any organisation. Greg's personality and smile always has a way of making my most stress filled days seem easier.

Gary Christieson - Director

Greg has been our advisor for a number of years and has advised on a number of projects, both business and personal. He is extremely knowledgeable and can explain things simply. His calling card is his responsiveness and ability to get results.

Richard Warburton - Director

I have known Greg for nearly 5 years. I was first introduced to Greg through one of his companies that I later became part of. While initially I understood Greg to have exceptional financial management skills and experience I quickly also learnt Greg entrepreneurial skills and drive, his understanding of how to bring a product from idea to inception, how to bring a team together with financial, development and sales knowledge behind his idea and onto the same page. It has been an honour working with Greg and to continue to see him delivery his knowledge and experience to many recipients.

Andrew McClurg - General Manager APAC

CW Automotive was the first step into business ownership for myself

and my wife. Greg was instrumental in every step of the process from due dilligence, to purchasing the business, to setting up our systems and establishing our business plan. He made what was a daunting and stressful decision into a paint by numbers excericse. His calm and patient manner and ability to explain difficult business concepts made the transition from employee to owner effortless.

Callum Williams - Owner/Director
