Aaron has worked in companies of all sizes in different industries throughout his caree. This vast range of experience has given him the ability to adapt and develop a flexible approach in building rapport with people of all backgrounds.
Having followed a standardised career path of going to University and then working in a large corporate firm, Aaron always knew that there was something greater for him out there to achieve. However for 6 years he struggled to identify what this could be, despite rising up the corporate ladder in quick fashion. Then one day after a conversation with his father, he was offered the opportunity to take over his father’s restaurant. Without much thought Aaron quickly jumped at the chance.
It wasn’t until Aaron left his job and fully immersed himself in his restaurant that he realised what he had inherited. Following the passing of Aaron’s mother two years earlier, his father had lost his drive and motivation to maintain the business which experienced a sharp decline in business. Coupled with this, it was revealed that the manager who was trusted with running the business was stealing a large portion of the takings leaving bills and wages unpaid. Over the first year he was forced to settle a series of outstanding debts. Undeterred and with minimal cashflow to work with, Aaron was driven to turn the business around.
