Time to Future-proof Your Business
Have you noticed, especially in this COVID-time, how relentlessly negative the news media are?
No surprise that so many people are fearful, pessimistic, thinking the worst.
Many others are positive, optimistic, seeing this as a time of change and possibility.
They’re the people I love to coach.
The dreamers, the risk-takers, the ones who do not expect everything to go perfectly all the time.
The ones who have developed the resilience to bounce back, re-boot and, if necessary, start again.
Hi, I’m Des Walsh.
I’m a business coach and digital entrepreneur.
I’ve always relished change and enjoyed seeking new opportunities.
The most satisfying career experiences have been when I felt most challenged, or even out of my depth!
From my first night as a Sydney taxi driver, to when, as a senior government executive, I managed multi-million dollar programs, in education, the arts, and major events.
Then in starting my own business!
As a coach I work with entrepreneurs who relish change and new opportunities, want to future-proof their business
My mission is to elicit my clients’ inherent greatness..
I Have Questions, Not Answers
Top coaches ask great questions: they respect the ability of their clients to come up with great answers.
Self-starting, self-motivating entrepreneurs appreciate having coaches who listen (intently) more than they speak.
My Framework: Clarity, Focus, Momentum
When I started coaching, I asked myself: “When I became a senior government executive, and later a solo entrepreneur, what would I have wanted from a coach?”.
The answer was, three things – Clarity, Focus, and Momentum
Clarity: in our noisy world we need clarity about our vision, mission and commitment.
Focus: zoning in on purposeful, aligned action
Momentum: keeping on keeping on, through lows as well as highs
The Digital Economy
Not everyone likes working with digital technology but it’s not optional anymore. Clients benefit from my knowledge and experience as a digital economy evangelist for over 20 years, a certified social media strategist and affiliate marketer.
