The Project Guys are a consultancy company that partner with committed small & medium trade-based business owners to help them develop and build their businesses. Essentially we help our clients solve their $100,000 problems.

What does this mean? Every business at some stage comes up against a problem that could potentially have a $100,000 effect on the business. For example they may need increased sales, to develop a better operational system or a better project management system, to employ a new staff member, to develop new marketing strategies or develop a new product, or to find better ways to communicate with and manage clients.

Through our core services of coaching and business project management we provide the expertise, skills, knowledge, experience and confidence to solve the issues holding our clients back. This allows them to operate their businesses more efficiently, more profitably, and to achieve better results.

Our clients get access to a collaborative network of experts committed to helping them succeed. We are committed to helping them smash through the glass ceiling and successfully push on to the next stage of their business development.
