For Graham Hawkes, business advice has been a lifetime passion –

Helping people in business to achieve their business goals

Graham Hawkes has worked in senior management with multi-million dollar corporates, has managed smaller companies, has owned his own business, and has built up an accounting practice from nothing.


Now semi-retired, Graham’s own business goals revolve around putting all of that experience into giving others business advice to help them achieve their business goals. He and his wife, Wendy, operate a small boutique escorted tour company and this alone helps Graham keep in touch with what is going on in the present day business world.


It has not been all beer and skittles. Graham has been through the agonising experience of not developing properly formulated business goals for his business ideas, and paid heavily in the process. So he has been there and done that and as a result can easily recognise danger signs and can help business owners to stay clear of them.


The case studies and testimonials demonstrate the success that Graham has had in giving business advice to business owners throughout his career and helping them to achieve their business goals.


Somebody has to run the engine room while Graham is consulting with clients, and Graham’s wife Wendy, a partner in the business, looks after the administration side of the business.


Wendy has a background in secretarial work and is the friendly voice at the other end of the phone when you call Your Sounding Board. Wendy also does most of the research and detailed work for sister company Skylark Tours.
