WHATEVER IT TAKES

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.
