Stressing the need to critique and elevate communication to target markets

Sue Jauncey qupte (17-05)

CEO and Founder of Appellon Sue Jauncey joins this week’s episode. Not only did Sue grow her company from a small boutique consulting business to a global organisation, but she also has a fascinating career history, working as a forensic Psychologist across the Australian Prison system. Sue gained a deep understanding of human behaviour, and her 25-year experience measuring behavioural and performance outputs has earned her great recognition. Sue has worked with global institutes such as the Royal Australian Navy, Northern Territory Health and The National Health Service, England. She is passionate about supporting individuals who want to live better, healthier, wiser lives and organisations who seek to promote collective achievement, connection and performance innovation.

Sharon emphasises the need for communication, stressing the need to critique and elevate communication to target markets: brands with the most reputable, loudest voices are consistently the ones that cut through. Not only is there a need to increase communication, but with the impact of Covid-19, Sharon highlights empathy as a new brand currency. This is especially relevant to mid-market businesses – demonstrating empathy confirms you are genuine, giving your business an edge, not just to staff, but also to clients. If increasing communication isn’t an option for you, then she recommends upping the experience that your clients have with your company, and ensuring you show empathy as you do so.

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.
