We have known and worked with Stirling Tavener from Anson Advisory for many years. Stirling has great expertise in finance, banking, business development and management. Stirling has successfully applied for grants and tenders on behalf of our businesses and his research and inputs have been outstanding. We highly recommend Stirling to any private individual or businesses who seek finance, business development and management advice and successful outcomes for tender and grant applications.

Stirling was extremely efficient, he gave us structure and motivation, simplified our processes, saved us a bunch of money and helped us develop a strong business strategy to grow our business through the next decade. Thank you very much for reducing our stress level and we look forward to working with you further.

We have known Stirling from Anson Advisory for a number of years, having met when looking to purchase a business. To which he later became our business banker. Whilst he wasn't in the town we eventually purchased our business in, he had won us with his attention to detail to go over and above what's required with a professional and broad knowledge of not just the banking sector but a thorough knowledge of all facets of business related issues or topics. We subsequently reached out some years later when attempting to grow our business and obtain support with grant preparation as we knew from previous experience his professional acumen was outstanding. We have now been approved for the grant applied for, which is a monumental win for a SME that is usually reserved for much larger operations. The department delivering the funding was extremely impressed with the detail and content provided mentioning that "it was amazing and stood out from over 276 shortlisted applications" Stirling we couldn't have done it without you. If you are looking for professional business services in finance or the broader business scope you need to reach out to Anson Advisory today.

Four months into business coaching with Stirling, juggling three businesses, he really has connected the dots, and we are now seeing exponential growth! Would highly recommend giving him a call if you're looking to grow your business or upskill yourself in business management.

Katrina Bath

I have been extremely privileged to have had Stirling Tavener provide business support to my company periodically for more than a year. His contributions have been wide ranging and also deep and complex, covering the functions of market analysis, financial analysis, management reporting and process improvement.

Very quick to grasps the concepts of my business, Stirling brought to bear his extensive knowledge of other industry sectors in which he has worked, his deep analytical skills and his experience in the banking sector to help us better understand our business’s key cost and performance drivers.

In addition, Stirling was able to translate the resultant metrics into practical action plans which defined cost and profit drivers, areas of risk, and where improvement was required.
I highly recommend Stirling’s services to any business; perhaps for just a ‘health check’ to see where or how you could improve or for a thorough, very quantitative analysis of the complexities of your business.

A recent study (2023) has shown that Australian business closures are at their highest rate for over fifteen years with approximately 20% of new enterprises failing within the first twelve months and up to 60% facing closure within three years of launch; and whilst small businesses (single ownership) are more at risk, larger established businesses are also vulnerable. Of course, a percentage of businesses are simply never viable and a lack of success in inevitable, but many founded on great ideas and innovative and exciting products or services also flounder due to a lack of business acumen.

Taking the simple and straightforward steps of utilising the services of a business feasibility consultant or business viability advisor can mitigate many of the risks associated with running a business. Anson Advisory provide a range of business and finance services that have already helped many businesses, large and small, across Australia and the South Pacific, to not only consolidate their positions but to grow and thrive.
