"Creating thriving, prosperous communities through business growth is why we exist"

Our Story

The Wellington Centre of Business Excellence is founded on the belief that to win, we all need to win. Whereas win/lose means a zero sum, we believe in win/win and work with business owners to achieve that, 100% of the time.

Our roots stretch from South Africa to New Zealand. Chris started his career in the shadow of Table Mountain alongside the Liesbeeck River and has worked for more than 20 years across Africa, Europe, North America and the Asia Pacific region. His passion is for business growth to change lives. Read more in his bio here.

As business coaches and mentors, we are part of the global ActionCOACH network. With more than one thousand coaches around the world, we work with business owners in practically every industry and sector, bringing tried and tested solutions, approaches and strategies to help them grow. Founded 25 years ago in Australia, ActionCOACH is the leading business coaching franchise globally. 

To get business owners and organisational leaders to the next level, we are certified John Maxwell Team coaches, providing additional insights and capability in our community.

We define a successful  business as 'a commercial, profitable enterprise that works without you'. That means it has the systems in place to deliver consistent excellent client service, the people and teams to work those systems and the profitability to provide a great lifestyle to the business owner.

Our Vision & Mission

Our vision is to see every community in New Zealand thriving - living healthyprosperousabundant lives – empowered through business growth.

Our mission is to work with business owners to increase their revenue and profits, to attract, grow and retain the best teams and to provide robust, tested and consistent systems to run their businesses. We do this to give business owners greater certainty, more time and significantly improved productivity – in short, to fulfill the dreams and goals they have personally and professionally.

We select our clients as much as they choose us. The commitment between us is mutual – we commit to give 100% to our clients in all we do and they, in turn, commit to do all they can and all we agree. The strength of the coaching relationship lies in the ‘common space’ where clients are forward thinking, willing to learn and grow to work as a team player in the development of an organisation of ‘people’.
