Hi, I’m Graeme. I’m here to help you boost your biz. Let’s talk.

My message

I have a passion for business, and an even bigger passion for seeing people like you, succeed in their businesses. You put your heart and soul into your business, and I’d like to help you realise your goals for growth and success.

After 30 years in government, local government, and predominantly commercial private sector, I decided to follow my dream of supporting businesses by assisting their owners to better understand their commercial requirements, as well as making a network of advisers and support people available to you.

Whether you’re just starting out, or you’re an existing business looking to take things to the next level, or just needing some help to get some traction, I’m here to talk.

Successful people do what unsuccessful people are simply unwilling to do.

Darren Hardy


As the founder of Biz Assist, I bring to you a range of business knowledge that I have acquired over the past 30 years. I’ve worked in government, local government, and predominantly commercial private sector. Most recently, I was CFO of a large group of companies, where strategy and growth was key to my role.


Having graduated Otago University as an Accountant, I have grown my knowledge base in a range of industries, from governmental to small FMCG businesses – I’ve also been on School Board of Trustees, where my role was to mentor and lead. I am commercially savvy, and able to work with sole traders through to larger businesses.


As CFO in my previous role, Leadership was key, and I bring to you a range of experience to help you lead the way in your chosen field, and to help you lead your team to success. I have a down to earth approach to working with people, and I believe in using plain English, and building trusting relationships.


Your business is as unique as you, and through talking with you, I will create a bespoke package for you that will help you drive your business forward. Whether you need help with a business plan, cashflow projections and strategy, or even bank liaison, I’m here to guide you.
