Praise
  • Cameron is a great strategic thinker who is driven by his values. We’ve encountered many mentors and strategists along our entrepreneurship journey and few people have been able to cut straight through to the heart of issues so rapidly and insightfully. He provides a wealth of creative ideas, and naturally considers the implications of these options, including unintended consequences, which is key to delivering a great product or service to people at the bottom of the pyramid.

    Miranda Phua
    co-founder City Taps

  • Cameron’s deep knowledge of the challenges and complexities in creating a profit-for-purpose organization was of great significance in the early stages of designing and launching One Night Stand. As both a strategist and a mentor, Cameron helped me to find answers to the tough questions he posed by connecting me into his vast network of people and resources. If you have the opportunity to work with Cameron, do it. You and your project will be better for it.

    Jamie Green
    Founder – One Night Stand

  • Cameron has been, and still is, of great value to our organisation. Riddled with self-doubt about our external impact and struggling internally with uncertain structures, he has brought us clarity and authority at the perfect time. Employees have responded positively, sales are improving, and our message is becoming clearer. His values align perfectly with ours, and this has created the added benefit of creating an exciting vision for both our business, and our personal lives.

  • Cameron’s strategic mind and planning sessions helped us to focus on what we wanted to achieve, and think through how we could get there. His facilitation skills, paired with his ability to see a path forward we may not have recognized, made these sessions incredibly productive and were essential to us refining our strategy to move forward. When Cameron joined the board, he became a mentor to me, helping me to navigate the intricacies of being the COO of a growing NGO, and being a key support in difficult times.
