Carl also understands what it takes to run a successful small business, as he was a successful Mortgage Broker as a franchisee for Mortgage Choice. During this 11 year period he won performance awards and acted as a mentor for more than eight years.
Then four years as a Business Life coach assisting businesses to develop and grow.
In that time he noticed that one of the biggest frustrations in business is the digital space. Finding what are the ‘right’ things to do today and then aligning with a provider who will work with you and deliver real results to improve your business. He found that Mad Scientist was passionate about getting real results for our clients and decided to join us. He loved it so much he is now a shareholder of Mad Scientist.
His broad experience has delivered a knowledge of global, national and small business operations across the fast moving consumer goods, finance, banking and retail and services sectors.

My genius is:
Spherical thinking, which allows me to distil the complex to be understood and find multiple approaches to a challenge. This requires great questioning; whether to cut to the essence of a business problem or to have a great time in a social setting. I love taking on-board new up to date information. ‘Facts’ change, I want to know the current one!
My madness is:
Being able to see things from everyone’s point of view. It makes for interesting internal dialogue.
