In addition to being your sounding board Graham offers a number of specific services which include:

Business Plan

There is an old saying which goes “Failing to plan is planning to fail”. Every business should have a plan. It doesn’t need to be a 250mm bound edition, it just needs a simple statement which says where you are today, where you want to go and how you are going to get there.


Your business plan can be put together after two simple sessions. It is not rocket science and Graham’s easy approach to getting your ideas out of your head and on to paper will benefit your business in years to come.

Budget Advice

Normally budget advice is part of a business plan but if you just want budget advice in putting a forecast together, then Graham can help you to do that. Budget advice can also be ongoing as some of the unknowns become known factors and your budget is easily tweaked so that you have an up to date budget advice forecast.


Special Projects Management

Sometimes in business you need assistance with a special project – something that you have always wanted to get into but haven’t had the time to look at it properly. Let Graham have a look at it and if it is within his field of expertise, he can help you with it.


If your special project is outside his expertise, Graham has network of other advisers with whom he can put you in touch for your special project management.


Conference Speaker and workshops

An accomplished speaker and a member of the Professional Speakers Association of New Zealand, Graham is equally at home speaking to a team meeting, a small sales or product conference or a full-sized conference with 100 delegates or more. He can also formulate in-house workshops for a specific purpose.


The delivery can be inspirational, motivational, educational and as inter-active as you wish it to be. If you want to arrange a conference overseas at a South Pacific venue, then sister company, Skylark Tours, can assist you.

Graham Hawkes can be your business coach

He can also be your business mentor

But if you don't want that level of involvement, he is happy to just be there to listen to your business ideas and help you to develop them through a series of meetings. There is no long term contract. You call the shots after the first three meetings.


Not only that you get your money back if you are not satisfied – see our Guarantee.






Our Guarantee

After your initial FREE consultation, and a further two sessions, Graham guarantees that you will benefit from bouncing your business ideas around with him. And if you feel, after those sessions, that you have not received at least one idea to help you to make more money from your business, then Graham will cheerfully refund your payment in full.
