Is Your Business at the Top of the Game?

Reading time: 1 - 2 minutes

Over a decade ago a young cricketer at the Australian Cricket Academy was approached to bat whilst the Australian team were practicing in the nets nearby. The teams fast bowlers were asked to try and bowl out the 16 year old star of the future.

With little success after a long and tiring session the bowlers realised this teen cricketer had talent. The cricketer was the previous Australian Captain, Ricky Ponting, who surpassed Allan Border as the highest ever test run scorer for Australia in July 2009.

Running a successful business is no different in some ways to being an elite sportsperson; you need to not only work hard but also closely with your professional advisers to ensure you and your business remains at the top of the game.
