A five year reflection on being a Non-Executive Director
by Julie Green, Non-Executive Director - RACV, Director - Bendigo Health
Are you looking for more than 10% growth?
Green Ant is a niche firm of strategists and business community builders. We exist to build business communities and to connect our clients with the people they need to meet. If you’re looking for 5-10% annual growth we’re probably not for you. But if you’re looking for 20%+ growth and you want to make a real difference, we’d like to explore the options with you.
01 Our Purpose
Our purpose is to help our clients to grow their profits and their lifestyles, and facilitate profit as a force-for-good on Planet Earth.
02 What We Believe
We believe that the world is an exceptional place and that every woman, man and child deserves the right to lead a joyful existence and that Profit can and should be used as a force for good on Planet Earth.
We stand for inclusion and we’ll never tolerate sexism, ageism or racism – ask Mandela!
It’s great to do things differently! Ask Steve Jobs!
We’re focused on real outcomes (like Singapore the country) for our clients, being an exceptional place to work and enjoying the journey every step along the way (ask the Dalai Lama!).
03 Our Client
Who we’re for:
We’re for clients who want to grow by a lot.
We’re for clients who want to make a difference
and who are willing to do things differently.
We’re for clients who want to build communities and long term relationships.
Some of the clients we’ve worked with:
In the early years, we had the privilege of helping Telstra build their Reseller Channel and of helping Westpac build their business community in Melbourne.
We supported Careers Multilist (then the largest recruitment franchise group in Australia) to grow, we supported Melbourne Business Network and TEDx Melbourne to grow their communities.
We’ve since spent a lot more time in the technology arena helping multiple technology providers including Datacom, a $1.2Bn technology enterprise, to expand their community and their client base.
One of our exciting opportunities has been to help Melbourne United to build out its entire business community of CEOs and executives, which now exceeds 3,000 businesses and more than 300 decision makers attending each one of their 5 major events per annum, leading to higher profitability of the club.
