Sharpen Business Coaching is a business mentoring service that guides ethical business owners/leaders, like you, to overcome their profitability, risk, and time challenges, enabling them to achieve more of their goals, and enjoy doing so.

If your purpose is worth striving for, then we want to help you achieve it.

Our Founder – Kevin Picton

Kevin is a values driven leader with more than 20 years’ experience helping some of the most well-known corporations in Asia Pacific to be more profitable. He’s helped build long term success with companies including Strandbags, Coles, Woolworths, Caltex, Lenovo, LG, and Samsung, and is now bringing proven, actionable guidance to smaller organisations with socially meaningful purposes.

Kevin is proud to be a member of two incredible professional networks:

The Network of Consulting Professionals (The NCP), membership is made up of advisors and consultants from almost every industry and area of business imaginable, with rich and deep experience in solving almost any business challenge.

Dedicated to Not For Profits (NFPs), the MAP Consulting Group, is composed of talented, experienced and ethical consultants with a broad range of business expertise. If you are a NFP, then members of the MAP Consulting Group, have capped our fees so you don’t pay a fortune for seasoned expertise.

We’ve made working with us easy because:


  • NO RISK

    We suggest that we first meet for a coffee and a chat where we can get to know you and your organisation’s challenges. Only if you feel comfortable that we can provide value to your business, would we then move to a paid service. Up until that point, it is totally free and without any obligation.

  • COST EFFECTIVE FOR YOU

    If you’re hiring someone to help grow your business, you want someone that can work with you at a cost that is right for you. We have several options to help you grow your business that suit different budgets, including special rates for NFPs. We’d love to meet you, look at where you’re at now and where you would like to be, and discuss how quickly you wish to get there.

  • ENJOY MEASURABLE RESULTS

    It’s important when you hire someone to help you achieve your business objectives, that you get results such as more clients, increased turnover, or reduced costs. When we work with you, the results are tested and measured so that you can track success.

  • AVAILABLE WHEN YOU ARE

    We understand businesses are busy during business hours, so if you need flexibility, by arrangement, we are available out of hours on weekdays and weekends to make it easy for you.

  • FREE TO CANCEL ANY TIME

    Most business coaches want to lock you in to long contracts because it’s convenient for them. Whilst we’d like to work with you for 12-months or more, there are no lock in contracts. We feel if we are not delivering results then you shouldn’t have to continue working with us, so you are totally free to stop working with us at any time – No Questions Asked.

  • YOU’LL ENJOY A COMPLETE ECOSYSTEM OF EXPERTISE

    As an SME owner / leader, you face challenges from cash flows issues, to HR conflicts, and everything in between. Rather than having to deal with a dozen or more consultants in these areas, Sharpen is backed by professional networks of talented and experienced consultants with a complete cross section of business expertise, meaning you only have to deal with us to solve almost any business problem.

  • WE SHARE PROVEN STRATEGIES WITH YOU

    Everything that we show you has been tried, tested and proven in the real world. No dry theory or information from textbooks. This is actionable guidance. You can have complete confidence knowing that the information we share with you gets results.

Let’s have a coffee and a chat, and see how we can work together.

WHATEVER YOUR GOALS ARE, LET’S MAKE THEM HAPPEN
