SME owner


Optivance 360 understands the importance of Small Medium Enterprises (SME’s) in the Australian Economy and that their challenges and needs are often significantly different from the larger corporate sector.

Like SME’S worldwide, Australia’s SME sector plays a vital role in the Australian economy.

According to the Australian Government (Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research), in 2009 of all the actively trading businesses in Australia, approximately 95% were small, 4% medium and 1% large.

Other studies indicate that Australia’s SME sector employs between 4.5 and 5 million people and is responsible for close to half of Australia’s GDP, a contribution estimated in the region of $500 billion.

Whilst different studies produce varying estimates of the size and relevance of the SME sector, it is clear that SME’s make an enormous contribution to the local economy.

Sadly, however, many SME’s flounder or fail to reach their full potential because they lack the experience, skills, time or resources to attract or retain the best talent to assist them.

Many SME’s simply do not even understand the importance of essential areas such as strategy, planning, risk assessment and management, and some pay little or no attention to the financial, branding and marketing efforts that are required.

Research shows that in 2005-6 over 99.5% of the 80,000 businesses that stop trading were SME’s, of which an overwhelming majority were small.

With a wealth of experience in the SME sector, including professionals such as lawyers and accountants, Optivance 360 is able to provide SME’s with expertise and support to grow their businesses and reach their full potential.

Whether your requirements are financial strategies, branding & marketing orientated or relate to the development of a franchise strategy from a great concept we undertake to work alongside you every step of the way. We endeavour to provide the best solutions to help grow your business to its full potential.

Irrespective of whether your business requires mentoring, management consulting (on a short medium or long term basis) or non- executive management services, we will ‘partner’ with you in the most optimal manner for your circumstances and needs.

In addition, where appropriate, our group advertising and marketing partner, Milestone Belanova now enables clients to implement our branding & marketing recommendations in a seamless, convenient and cost efficient manner.
