Our History

Business Essentials in its modern day form commenced in 2009; the business had been one that focussed on media productions only and did not really stray from that space.

In late 2009, the now owner of Business Essentials, Geoff McDonnell, was consulting to the (now) late owner and founder of the business and took over the running of the business and ownership at the beginning of 2010 after the founders passing.

The business consolidated its position as one that continued to provide high quality business information to the market place via a very loyal base of client subscribers. In 2014 the audio element was spun off and sold back to the son of the original owner and continues today as a media productions business.

Business Essentials has entered a transformational phase into a fully-fledged consulting practice with a wide ranging offering. The basics of our promise is to learn what you need as a business owner and partner with you to provide support as you journey towards the goals and milestones you set for yourself.

Often clients have commented on the very personal service we provide and this is our great strength. Geoff McDonnell, the owner of the business and the key driver of the client interface, is very focussed on finding out where you want to be as a person, as a business owner and as a family member. Once we know this we can then provide partnership, business strategy, connection to the right circle and education.

Business Essentials is your partner in strategy and we are here to help business owners and their key team members achieve al they set out to.
