You can't overestimate the need to plan and prepare. In most of the mistakes I've made, there has been this common theme of inadequate planning beforehand. You really can't over-prepare in business! (Chris Corrigan, Managing Director, Patrick Corporation)

What does our name mean?

 

If you own a small to medium-sized enterprise, we're here to support you in:

  • achieving your personal goals through your business;

  • complying with the seemingly endless requirements of running a business in New Zealand; and

  • having fun doing it.

So why did we call ourselves Academy of Business Excellence Limited? Our name wasn't a random decision - it was a carefully thought out plan to present ourselves to the world.

Academy: The garden near Athens in which Plato taught. Today an academy is a place of study or training in a special art. We see learning as a life-long process which occurs most effectively when it occurs within the context of real life - not when you're cloistered away from the real world. Just as importantly, while some happens when you're on your own, much learning happens when you're not on your own.

Of: We'll give you this one - there's nothing special about it - not even in Latin - we just use joining words to make sense.

Business: If you're reading this you're presumably in business. We suggest however that until you have other people who can keep the business operating at least at a basic level, then what you actually have is a job - albeit self-employed. We work with both groups - but we offer greatest value to businesses involving more than just the owner.

Excellence: Pre-eminent standard, surpassing merit. If you want to be just another business, then keep on as you have been - you don't need our academy. But if you really strive to be the best you can, then we may be part of your success.

Limited: Obviously this simply means we are a company. We like to think we're not actually limited in capability! While we don't have the skills to deal with every issue, we do have a network of trusted contacts who can help with most business issues.
