Host Craig West talks to Tim Ryan, Director at Ilume, about developmental coaching and Radical Candor – a communication and management model for the middle market that helps business owners develop their ability to Challenge Directly and Care Personally at the same time.

Tim Ryan is one of the most experienced and respected coaches in Australia. With a career spanning over 12 years in the industry and 30 years on business, Tim became widely recognised as “the vision and strategy guy”. With his open and honest style of coaching, Tim works effectively with all Leaders and Organisations – from small start-ups right through to ASX 100 clients – to help them navigate successful pathways to conquer mountains that were thought unachievable. His successful approach in Facilitation, Executive Coaching and Leadership Development has encouraged business leaders to help shift their mindsets and embrace new challenges. Tim launched ilume and Radical Candor in Australia in 2018.

Craig West

Managing Director | Succession Plus

Craig West is a strategic accountant who has over 20 years’ experience advising business owners. His background as a CPA in public practice, provided invaluable experience in the key issues of concern to business owners. Following 6 years of study to gain two masters degrees, Craig focused on Capital Gains Tax (CGT) for business sales advising on strategic management of tax issues. This experience formed a very strong view that business owners (and often their advisers) were unprepared and unaware of the steps required to prepare a business for exit.

Craig now acts as a strategic mentor for mid-market business owners and has written four critically acclaimed books on employee incentives, succession planning, asset protection and exit strategies. Craig has conducted numerous seminars and keynote presentations throughout Australia & internationally, including adviser education programs for the Institute of Chartered Accountants and CPA Australia.
