Matt's experience with SMBs

Matthew has first-hand business experience in leading two businesses in the Victoria region, whose service offering is to place top-level Executives into SME’s. This means he is dealing directly with SME owners, hearing their issues, understanding their needs and coming up with solutions to spearhead the issues and propel the business towards growth.

There are three main prevalent issues that Matthew has noted that are affecting eligible businesses in Victoria. The number one issues is; Leadership - businesses are lacking leadership in senior roles and this drips down to lack of leadership in Marketing and Sales teams, resulting in negative growth. Businesses often don’t know how or where to look when recruiting for leadership roles. The second issues is: clarity on business performance and cashflow. Matthew has seen this a lot in the placement of CFO’s into SME’s, where there is lack of understanding and know-how when it comes to cashflow management, analysis, budgeting and forecasting.

Thirdly, the mental health of founders and the stress of running and developing a business is a key issue Matthew sees throughout businesses. There is a lack of support when it comes to this and often SME owners feel out of their depth or they’re not sure what to expect.
