Business Success Partners Australia
are business improvement specialists.

We work with the owners of business on the business itself


We’re not business coaches and we’re not consultants
Business coaches tend to work with the business owner on the business owner.
Consultants generally help write plans.

At Business Success Partners Australia, we work with the owners of business on the business itself.

We help get a good but simple plan prepared and help turn it into a reality. We stay with you to make things happen.

When a plan is done properly, it makes the business owner consider the things that are necessary to make the business run much more effectively and profitably.


We find many clients are very good at what they do but lack the expertise and experience in the finer points of running a successful business.

These finer points are the ones that make the real money and Business Success Partners Australia has the experience and skills to help you get your business performing at its best.

The Business Success Program is a comprehensive consulting program that improves business profitability and value over a multi-year time frame.

    I have been running my business for just over 20 years. As a small business owner it is important to continually draw on the experience of others and not become complacent in your business. I employed Rohan for a period of three months to review my current business model and define areas within the business that are not performing to a standard required. Having a second, unbiased opinion regarding the management of our business has been a real eye opener for my team. Rohan has help us review and consolidate our values as a team. He also exposed areas of the business that were clearly underperforming. Reviewing and monitoring our performance against those areas of concern is now helping to make a difference to our profitability.

    I have used Rohan as a business consultant for the past nine months and I have found his service exceptional. He is a man of great integrity and passion focused on achieving the best possible outcome for his client. I would not hesitate to referr anyone to him who is looking at either expanding their business or increasing their profits.

    I just wanted to thank you for being the person who walked through my door in January when I was at the end of my tether wondering how to go about growing my business. Within a week you already had a quick contingency plan of attack and within a month we noticed a very noticeable turnaround in profits and cashflow. Within three months you had already sorted out a very comprehensive business plan and had us well on the way to recovery. It has now been nearly eight months and we are well and truly on the road to success and your commitment, energetic enthusiasm and guidance are always there for every meeting. I look forward to having a long and successful relationship and are very grateful for you walking through my door that hot January afternoon. Many thanks once again.

    I’m extremely happy with the outcomes achieved to date from working with Joanne from Business Success Partners Australia. Straight up, she involved the whole team in setting the Business Vision, which meant everyone understood what we were trying to achieve, and they felt included in the process. “She helped us identify and measure the major drivers we needed to focus on to achieve our sales and profit targets, and I now have a much better understanding of the figures I need to watch on a monthly basis to achieve our 5-year plan. Our profit grew significantly in the first 12 months of working with Joanne, and I don’t have to take paperwork home with me anymore. I also feel more comfortable taking time away from work for holidays with my family, as the workshop and office now run relatively smoothly without me. I’m much happier running my business now than I have been in a long time.”

    Thanks Graeme for working with us. Over the last couple of years, we have achieved results in our business, unbelievable a few years back. Hitting our $1m sales target three years ahead of time, developing our team to be able to operate without us needing to be in the store every day and getting our finances back in order (now ahead of our mortgage payments). ‘Before we started, we were not even sure if we could afford to work with you. Now we know we could not afford not to work with you. The support you provided has given us the confidence to serve our customers with ‘good old-fashioned country style service’ in the city and build the business on that base. We know who our best customers are and why they buy from us – this is what our team focus on every day. We had always dreamed of establishing several stores – that dream is becoming a reality with the opening of our second store in April this year. We are excited about what the future might bring and look forward to continuing to work together.

    When I start with a client it is vital that they know where their income is going. I often call on Simon to help with Cash Flow forecasts, Budgets, Margins and all areas of Management Accounting. Simon’s expertise in this area is second to none. He also creates the best business plans I have seen. I would recommend Simon Calder to anyone who wants their business to grow in the right direction.

  • Richard Krupa
    When I decided to start my own business, I had no idea where to begin. Simon could guide me through the mine field, help me create my business plan and marketing strategy and obtain the necessary bank loans I needed to launch. The process was very easy and during the initial process, met with me regularly to ensure everything was on track. Now that I’ve launched, Simon still meets me every fortnight to track progress. Without him I doubt I would have been able to launch so effortlessly, I would recommend him to anyone!
