Nikki Kent – Director
Having learnt from some top coaches herself, (including Anthony Robbins), Nikki’s passion is to bring businesses in New Zealand to a new level. There is a rising need for business advice that goes far beyond the financial performance and reporting of a business. Nikki has a passion and really enjoys partnering with business owners, decreasing risk, improving both the value and the all important ‘work/life’ balance.
It takes a very special type of person to follow the VIBA process which puts the business owner first, always providing a complementary assessment which may find that the business owner needs to see another industry professional first as part of their value improvement (e.g. banker, lawyer, insurance broker, marketing consultant etc.) Each business owner who undergoes one of the complementary VIBA assessments comes out with a much clearer idea of the risks and successful areas of their business, even if they choose not to take on a value improvement service/program.
The VIBA process is so important we are extremely selective with who is able to join the network. This way business owners and industry professionals can be confident of the level of service a Value Improvement Business Adviser provides consistently.
Nikki’s previous experience includes:
• Coach to Accounting practices assisting the implementation of Business Advisory Services
• Sales and Marketing consultant to both accountants and businesses
• Regional Account Manager MYOB Accountants Division
• Regional Sales Manager APN Infomedia
• Project Manager for client sales seminars contracting to businesses and accountants
• Marketing & positioning consultant 3 years
• Business Partner to 2020 Asia Pacific
• Sales coaching from Anthony Robbins, Stephen Saunders & the late Roger McGill
