Advantex360 transforms Lahana Swim from a 450k company to $2 million in just 9 months!

“We first met with Michael Yacoub from Advantex roughly 8 months ago. After our business ‘Lahanaswim’ started to really take of and gain a lot of momentum. We started to feel overwhelmed, in over our heads. We had no experience in business and needed HELP, advise or anything anyone could offer us. I googled, ‘Needing help with business on the Gold Coast’ and came across Advantex360. We than went in for a consultation and left feeling relieved. It didn’t take us long to research and look into the company to know we NEEDED them!

I was a little worried at fist, thinking they could be too corporate for a small business like Lahanaswim, but the support, mentorship and love Michael, Tanya and Oliver have put into our business has been overwhelming. The Mentoring / coaching from Advantex360 has not only worked on the foundations and ensuring the business works like a machine with no headaches, but also worked closely with staff development. Implementing new procedures, checklists and most importantly confidence and leadership skills.

Lahanaswim has now elevated to the next level, It has enabled both myself and my partner to step back, take a breather and focus on the strategic planning and direction of our company.

In the short 8 months, with the guidance and systems developed by Advantex we have hired and trained our entire team, put in place new systems and procedures, opened a storefront, launched a new digital development strategy which involved launching a new Global online portal for our customers and wholesale department. Featured in Magazines, Newspapers and Channel 7 News. Along with PR connections, sporting our new Lahana tribe members ‘The Kardashians.’

I cannot recommend this beautiful team enough. Thank you for your guidance and support.”

Vrindy Benson - Founder, LaHANASWIM

We have a manufacturing business on the Gold Coast and we were having a very rough patch, things were going in the wrong direction, sales were down, profitability was up the creek, and team morale was at its lowest!

Michael Yacoub came in to our business introduced proper business structure and systems. He then turned our attention to our greater goal introduced marketing strategies for both on line and off line and increased our sales by 450%.

Michael’s business coaching and mentoring improved our business tremendously.

Our life and lifestyle are now a bliss!

It was an absolute pleasure to have Michael Yacoub at our head office in Doha Qatar where he worked with our management team to develop our ERP-CRM & SRM platforms.

Michael is an outstanding business consultant, he introduced new ideas, great strategies and cost saving measures to our regional operation.

Michael also helped coach our team in the implementation process and installed change management channels which increased our output efficiency factor by 35%.

I have no hesitation in recommending Michael Yacoub and look forward to continue working with him.

From our very first meeting with Michael I knew he was going to be the right Business Consultant to assist us with our new start up business. Michael has an air of energy and enthusiasm which is contagious. He has assisted me in seeing our new business in a very different light with a realisation this is going to be an amazing journey for all of us.

Michael is like an Eveready battery, he just keeps on keeping on! His knowledge of Business in all areas including his philosophy is a complete package and he never ceases to amaze me. I would recommend Michael to anyone who requires mentoring and guidance or even if you need to be around someone who can give you a serving of Inspiration, you’ve found the right guy!
