Peter also consults on franchising solutions.

What others say about Peter:

I recommend Peter as an advisor for anyone in business in whatever position they may hold. If they are able to spend time with Peter, they will be encouraged and inspired by his personality and business wisdom. Peter's business experience is very comprehensive, he understands what it is like going through the difficulties and blessings of building a super brand business, and he willingly gives out his business experience and wisdom."

Rowland P Jones, Managing Director, International Standards Certifications Pty Ltd

Peter Irvine has met with me regularly while I was working for another company, and also since I started my own business. He was able to encourage and provide ideas, on how to work with a difficult boss and still be able to exceed targets and build a sales team around the country. I was encouraged to go for it, and eventually the decision was made to resign and start my own business. The advise regarding setting up a warehouse, and just the "nuggets of Gold" of business information and direction and encouragement, and challenge has catapulted my business significantly forward."

Trent Fitzgibbins, Owner and Director, Jetblack Products Pty Ltd

When it comes to meeting people who think "big", i can't think of anyone else like Peter Irvine. To have a vision for 25 Gloria Jeans Coffee stores and then have the determination and vision to see it grow to over 400 plus take it around the world, shows the depth of his belief and commitment to following a BIG vision. I'm always inspired whenever I hear him speak, and have learnt many valuable lessons over the years."

Jason Berry, General Manager, 96five FM Brisbane

I actively sought out Peter Irvine in the hope he could provide me with any advice to help me start my business and steer it in the right direction for the future. I was overwhelmed and eternally grateful. Not only was Peter generous in giving up his time but also he showed a sincere interest and offered sound advice. He has been and still is an inspiration to me and my business, Flowers by Fruit."

(yes, there is a system for this)

The 4 ways your business could benefit

  1. Simply buy the appropriate "Do It Yourself" Manuals. These are written in a manner that is easy to read and follow. We have found that often business people simply don't have the time or inclination to try and follow complex manuals.
  2. The second, and often the best results is by us either providing product and some support time or providing a Coaching Program supported by the relevant business development material. This is by far the most popular option with most of small to medium business we work with.
  3. The third way is that you could provide a consulting service where you do some or all of the work.
  4. Complete Sales training facilitation and a systemised approached to increasing conversion rates and maximise every sales opportunity in your clients business.
