Welcome to Co-Pilot – Business Sounding Board

Business is tough. Creating, building, running and exiting a business is a journey.  It can be extremely rewarding.  It can be a juggle and even struggle to maintain control.  It can also be lonely.  We’ve been there.

Co-Pilot® is here to help you feel more in control, less overwhelmed, to create and action a solid plan, as well as  implement that plan along with ongoing accountability.  By having someone beside you to either echo your thoughts or challenge them when needed, this can be a major help that eases your mind and lets you sleep better at night.

A business is often our largest asset or certainly could be, with the right plan.  Assets require maintenance and by engaging the right help, we often get much needed momentum or are able to complete the job sooner, ideally with a better result than if we’d relied solely on just ourselves.

If we ever doubt the need for assistance, we remind ourselves that Roger Federer not only has a coach, however also advisors, trainers & mentors.

Is that a sign of weakness?  We certainly don’t think so.


Established in 2002, our aim as a Business Co-Pilot®, is to provide a fresh pair of eyes, as and when required, to increase business value for owners and stakeholders, by working alongside and helping you make things happen.


Co-Pilot® asks the relevant questions and aims to create greater business confidence in order to allow a better night’s sleep, free from some anxiety that naturally comes from being a business owner.


Co-Pilot® is proud to have an overall Net Promoter score of +75
for work via the Regional Business Partner network.

Maybe you feel that you have lost some of the old spark for business.  We’re keen to help you rediscover some passion and purpose, by having a solid and realistic plan. At the same time, ensuring that health, wellbeing & fun is part of that plan.

“There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened….”

We feel fortunate to have what we trust is the experience, methodology, values, humility, perseverance, empathy, integrity, confidence, dose of realism and networks to help you make good things happen to improve your business journey.

If you’re in need of website development, process & systems engineers, SEO, SEM, marketing & digital marketing, social media experts, branding, HR & recruitment, an accountant or lawyer, we will only ever work with and connect you with trusted contacts.

If you’re wanting to check-in on yourself, please download this ‘Daily 40’ Health & Wellness Checklist, which we hope is useful.
