Trades Support Businesses We Recommend

For most of the systems and structures you build into your business, you have a choice in who does the work:

  1. You can do it in-house – you or someone who works for you can do it
  2. You can get someone external to do it – a specialist or expert or an outsource partner

We have built a network of people we know will do a good job, who know their stuff and who we refer our clients to by preference. Some of you already have relationships and people you use and that’s fine (it’s your money after all).

We will be growing this list as we meet new people and businesses that we like and trust.

These are the external resources that can help you find work and win work, in other words, your sales and marketing experts

These are the external resources that can help you get the work done. Meaning they’ll aid in the operations and back office side of your business.

These are the external resources that can help you manage your team – your people and you.



Our coaching will help you do the preparation work you need to do to brief your marketing partners so you get the best results from them

Newin Estimating Services

(I haven’t spoken to him but some of our clients use them and say he does a good job)

Sydney Estimator

Daniel Haidar – 0499644966

I used to work for Newin, he’s good, however, Daniel Haidar is a bit cheaper but Newin is a QS and Daniel isn’t. So, Daniel would be cheaper and a bit more detailed but Newin would be trusted by a bank to provide bills of quantities.
Daniel also has construction experience and a builder’s licence.
