WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Trusted advisor and growth strategist to CEOs and business owners
He understood whats its like to lose everything and we shared our war stories, but more importantly he really understood from an emotional level what its like when you feel like the loneliest person in the world, what the world calls "failure". Jack Ma of Alibaba use to tell his team not about his successes, but all his failures because thats where people get the best lessons from. In my case I have learnt as much from Kristian's failures as from his wins and thats what makes him such a great teacher and mentor.
He challenges others to push beyond their personal boundaries, to exceed their own expectations…His ability to never judge and overlook first impressions empowers him to bring out the best in people. Kristian has assisted me in transforming my personal life and my business Organiq Australia.
It's always been a pleasure to work with Kristian. He's a motivated and driven individual who has a "never say die" attitude towards business. I regard Kristian as an expert in motivation, coaching, team building and relationship building. As a motivated and driven individual, Kristian has been an integral part of our team at Augment Space and is brilliant to work with.

“It was really helpful to draw upon his vast array of business experience, he filled us with confidence to keep chasing our goal and not be deterred as we hit any roadblocks. In particular he helped us understand that this is how most businesses start and that being authentic and sticking to our values will pay off in the long run. We are really grateful to have Kristian as our mentor”
"We say the following with absolute confidence: without Kristian's involvement, our company would look very different than it does today, and indeed might not even exist at all. We have nothing but the utmost respect for him, and offer this reference as a testament to the fact that he will add enormous value to whatever endeavour he is involved in. We look forward to his continued involvement in ByGen, and are excited to have him on the journey with us."
