If you want to turn your business in to a saleable asset or prepare it ‘ready for sale’ then just CONTACT ME.
I believe that a business that’s ‘ready for sale’ is well worth keeping!
I am a business mentor, business broker and love working with business owners turning their businesses into saleable assets.
I learned what it takes to successfully sell a business by selling my own training and development business in 2006 through an excellent broker. During this process with the business broker, I realised that most business owners have little idea about how a business is valued, what makes it attractive to buyers and how to sell it. I went on to become a Business Broker as well as following my passion for mentoring business owners, facilitating workshops and running business skills seminars.
I will help you craft your business into a valuable, saleable entity to give you options for your eventual exit strategy, and sell it for you as well if required. Build your business as though you are going to keep it forever, but could sell it tomorrow!
Through my roles with some of the world’s leading information technology companies in four different countries, I have been a high achiever in sales, customer service and management.
I started a training and development business in January 1997 as a licensee for Leadership Management Australia (LMA). After working for years on my own I took on a business partner with the goal of building the business and selling it in three years. My partner and I achieved our goal and sold the business in August 2006.
I am an experienced business person, business coach, facilitator / trainer, and registered Business Broker, although I only do this when is business is really saleable. As a broker I specialised in small and medium business and sold many types and sizes of business.
I was President of The Stirling Business Association from 1998 to 2000 and Chairman of the group responsible for building and starting up the very successful business incubator in the Stirling Regional Business Centre, Balcatta. I was also the president of the Wanneroo Business Association from 2011 to 2013 and I am still a long term member of both associations.
My experience as a business owner and extensive involvement with Perth businesses since 1994, means I am well credentialed in my role helping business owners turn their businesses in to saleable assets and preparing them “ready for sale” and helping to sell them when the time comes.

“A few years before I wanted to sell my business, I attended John’s “Prepare Your Business Ready For Sale” course and this was extremely beneficial. I discovered that selling a business was a lot more complicated than I expected. After the course John worked with me as my coach to prepare my company for sale over an 18 month period.
When the time came to list I was fully prepared and achieved a very satisfying result. I cannot thank John and his BOB group enough for the support and guidance. My advice to business owners, join John and his BOB group today.”

“When it comes time to make big decisions, to bounce ideas off people or have a focus group on a new product, that’s when it can feel very lonely for a lot of small business people. That is where I have found John Denton’s mentoring/business owners board (BOB AMG) to be invaluable assistance. You are grouped with a wide variety of like-minded people who want to improve their business, willing to share their time and experience to potentially help you. The advice also comes un-biased with no strings attached, and sometimes it hurts! The fact that I was a member for over 8 years and my business improved each year is testament to the value of the group and the professionalism of John as a facilitator. I recommend the group unreservedly.”
