About Us

Byronvale Advisors uses a polymathic* management consulting model.  We build teams of experts across a number of diverse disciplines and industries to develop specific solutions for your business or organisation.

This a move away from the traditional advisory model which seeks advice from various specialists (monomaths) who may lack the insights gained by seeing the whole picture i.e. only assisting in their specialty area.  A polymathic management consultant is someone whose specialty is learning both your business and other peoples’ specialty – quickly.

We pride ourselves on our ability to accelerate the time to minimum viable knowledge on a given topic – just like elite Navy SEAL team members, who learn enough of each other’s roles to be able to do the job in an emergency.

We know how to access specialist knowledge more effectively – not because we do not believe specialists can bring specialist knowledge, but for the ability to combine specialist needs with your business – therefore quickly assisting you better.

Byronvale Advisors help businesses find innovative solutions to complex problems and challenges and guides them in the right direction.

We are also a ‘hands-on’ partner to your business and believe in coaching and supporting the business to learn how to manage their business.  At the end of an assignment we aim for the business or organisation to have the capability and capacity to manage their ongoing successful business.

* A polymath (Greek: πολυμαθής, polymathēs, “having learned much”) is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas; such a person is known to draw on complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems. The term was first used in the seventeenth century.

Testimonials

Byronvale Advisors has been a great asset to our mutual national industry association client. Having provided the client’s Board with a new business model, established a new company and secretariat and administration operation and new supplier networks, Byronvale Advisors has managed to keep the strategic direction of the association on target while KE Creative Events manages the day to day events and communication offerings to the members.

Byronvale Advisors have a ‘hands on’ approach and provide KE Creative Events with solutions whenever required and support and coach us so that KE Creative Events and our clients are achieving the same objectives.

I have no hesitation in recommending Byronvale Advisors, in particular their principal Stephen Barnes, who has taken us on an insightful and exciting business journey.

Byronvale Advisors have performed great work for Blind Sports Australia. Blind Sports Australia is a national sporting organisation accredited by the Australian Sports Commission. It is not too hard to say that if Byronvale Advisors had not come on board I have grave doubts that Blind Sports Australia would have survived. They have worked with the Blind Sports Australia Board to implement and execute a rebuilding program for Blind Sports Australia, helped us implement a revenue program, lifted member engagement, and raised the overall governance standard of both Blind Sports Australia and those of our members who have availed themselves of their services.

They are hands on and quickly had an in-depth understanding of the organisation, its stakeholders and Blind Sports Australia’s role in the community. Byronvale Advisors demonstrate a genuine care for their clients and stakeholders and I would highly recommend that other not-for-profit organisations facing such challenges contact Byronvale Advisors

“In the space of a few hours, Byronvale Advisors were able to to provide us with sorely needed clarity in respect to our business position. Their assistance gave us an understanding of our accounts and their management in addition to key financial drivers that impact on our business performance. We only wish we had sought their advice sooner.”

“When you start a new business the administration and compliance work can be a bit daunting and overwhelming. Byronvale Advisors assisted us with this process and guided us in the right direction. They helped with company incorporation, contract review and negotiation, ATO private rulings, bank account setup, and also used their network to ensure both my company and my family had appropriate insurance coverage. What more they showed me how to release some cashflow critical for a new start-up company. They were always willing to be a sounding board and I don’t feel isolated in ensuring my business is managed well into the future.”

“I worked with Byronvale Advisors on a number of Antarctic related projects and can recommend them with confidence. Their consultant, Stephen is a great analytical thinker with the ability to work both pragmatically and strategically. He is bright, numerical and a great team player who is a good listener but is not afraid to make tough decisions. I would recommend Byronvale Advisors with confidence.”
