Snare Believes the Following Points are Crucial to Business Success:
- Put structures and systems in place behind the scenes that allow things to run seamlessly. “For us, this stems from having a board of directors, through to executive management, senior management and our innovations committee.”
- “Initially it was just Brendan and I bouncing ideas off each other. We now seek advice from third parties, such as industry peers, legal advisers or accountants.”
- Provide a workplace where staff can grow, be nurtured, and be unthreatened to achieve their maximum potential.
There was a period when we didn’t make money. That all turned around when we won the Telstra Business Award. Six months prior to that we’d only taken on one new client, and three months after the Awards, we’d almost doubled our client base.
Snare believes that harnessing the latest communications technology has also been key to the company’s success. PPM was an early adopter of smartphones for all staff, and now uses cloud computing to let people work their own hours from a location of their choice. But industry validation in the form of a high-profile award also helped.
