WHATEVER IT TAKES

PCA is an ad agency, marketing company and creative studio. Paul Crooks believes it is the agencies role to partner clients and help them find successful marketing and advertising solutions.

A “whatever it takes approach” and strong emphasis on “return on investment” are central to the way the agency approaches advertising.

“There are no rules when it comes to finding a successful solution to any client’s marketing needs. No two clients are ever the same and neither are the challenges they face in finding the most successful marketing outcome. That’s why at PCA we never restrict our thinking. Experience and knowledge play a role, but we always think outside the square. It is our belief that there is always a better and more cost effective way to achieve our client’s marketing goals. If our clients are successful then we will also be successful, that’s all that counts.”

ARE YOU A FAMILY BUSINESS?

Do you have a family business continuity system?
Are you preparing your business for future generations?

Family business is unique, complex, innovative and powerful YET it is Australia’s best kept secret.

A family business IS NOT a small to medium business (SME) – It is far more than that!

Family businesses are the engine room of the Australian economy employing 60% of the total Australian workforce and generating 65% of Australia’s economic activity.

As a family in business you are part of 870,000 in Australia and 110,000 in Queensland – Are you connected?

Family Business Continuity is far more than “succession planning” because it involves all family members. Yes Succession Planning is a part of the puzzle, however so is Retirement Planning, Estate Planning, Education and Professional Development, Next Generation Planning, Workforce Planning and Risk Management.

Lloyd is a 4th generation family business member, an internationally accredited family business advisor, a qualified Board Director and an accredited / licensed neuroscience practitioner. He currently holds three Director positions of which are family businesses where he is the Board Chairman.

His business TCB Solutions was established in 2008 as a specialist in the field of strategy, governance and performance specifically for families in business. His has a National and International clientele throughout the blue and grey collar industries of Agriculture, Agri-Business, Manufacturing, Mining / Resource Services and Import / Wholesale sectors ranging in size from $2m to over $500m in annual turnover.

Lloyd works collaboratively with Accountants, Legal professionals, Financial Planners and Financiers to ensure all stakeholders are working as the Succession Team for your family business.

WE HAVE BRENDALE COVERED

We often hear business owners say “Insurance companies are all the same. You pay too much for Insurance, but when it comes to paying a claim they’re so difficult to deal with”.

If you feel the same way, Insurance Web can offer you an alternative. There are important questions you should ask when assessing what you want out of your Insurance company:

1) Is the product correct for you, delivering the best available cover for your industry and circumstances?

2) Are you getting personal service from an experienced local professional who you can call whenever you need help or advice? Someone who is on your side when you need to claim?

3) Does your Insurance Company offer a comprehensive ‘Needs Analysis’ so you only pay for what you need and nothing else?

Over the last 9 years, Insurance Web have established a proven track record in Brendale. We always conduct an obligation free “Needs Analysis” before we quote. This is essential in helping you make the best choice that will minimise your risk and give you the best value for money.

Jason Matthey has ‘Brendale covered’ and his hands on approach and excellent advice is matched by his passion and commitment to developing long term relationships with his clients.
