Business Consulting at Ginza Hub

Business Consulting at Ginza Hub

Originally published on April 6, 2016 – Ginza Hub isn’t just a cool space for people to relax and to work on their most important projects. We also provide all manner of business consulting, referrals and virtual assistance to small businesses and entrepreneurs. And with awesome web developers and superstar graphic designers on our team, there isn’t much web-wise that we can’t handle.

I’m , an Australian entrepreneur who owns and runs Ginza Hub. After more than 15 years as a successful business consultant, and over 24 years working in Japan, my passion now drives me to coaching people on the tools and strategies needed to succeed in business, and even personally applying those tools and strategies for them.

Having founded or bought, then built and sold, several successful offline and online businesses, such as Zeros And Ones Japan Limited and, I believe I have unique insight and experience with what really works and what really doesn’t work when you’re trying to start up and run a small business, especially in Japan.

Starting Your Own Business in Japan

Starting Your Own Business in Japan

Originally published on June 28, 2016 – On Saturday night I was interviewed on the popular 2.5 Oyaji’s YouTube show, which has an amazing combined subscriber total of 148,000 people. We discussed co-working spaces like Ginza Hub, my business consulting, my health coaching and even my martial arts. Just about all of the things I’m passionate about! It was really fun, and I look forward to the next chance to get in front of the camera with Hikosaemon and Victor again.
