Mediation & Advocacy


It is not easy being in business. We understand that. Equally, with ever-increasing over-sight, governance and expansion of services, it is not easy being the banker either. With so much stress at times, it is no wonder that the business owner and the banker are sometimes at odds. Let us try to help iron out the creases in your relationship. Often it can be a few simple things that make a whole lot of difference and we are well-placed to understand both sides of the equation, particularly where the relationship is beginning to break down due to financial difficulties. Get us involved to help you understand each other and to chart a course for the future. We can then work with you and your professional advisors to achieve the desired outcome.

As an Associate member of the Arbitrators' & Mediators' Institute of New Zealand (AMINZ) and accredited under the Farm Debt Mediation Act 2019, we are uniquely positioned to help.


Let us help you communicate more effectively with your Bank or financier. With many years' experience in the commercial banking and finance sector, we are well-placed to help your voice be heard and to "speak the right language" with your financial partners. Also, with over 20 years in Business Mentoring, we are well-aware of the difficulties facing Small- and Medium-sized businesses and we pride ourselves on leaving out the jargon, so you should understand what we say!
