About Adam

After 11 years of building buildings I decided it was time to pursue my passion of building businesses instead.

The goal of the Better Operations Project is to travel, internationally, from business to business over a 12 month period and consult with the members to help solve an operational issue or project. This is not a financially driven project, more of a real world MBA. If you could benefit from some temporary operations support then please get in touch.

Why am I doing this? My aims are to; Use my skills to help where I can; Travel and meet interesting people; Grow my network; Learn; Build an interesting operations portfolio; See the world and get some great stories. www.betteroperations.co
