Miles, born in Williamstown, Victoria, had an achievement at school that no one else attained; he was the only student ever to get a ‘G’ on his report card (G, being after an ‘F’). He was asked to leave school at age 14. When Miles was 23, he saw a job advertised in the national newspaper, ‘The Melbourne Age’. The job was advertised specifically for a ‘Senior Retail Manager’ role that had worked in an operation turning over $1m/per week with a qualified degree. One of the requirements was that the applicant was over 40 years of age; the role was located in New Zealand.
Miles had none of these requirements.
He applied anyway and with his big picture thinking and certainty to execute his vision for the company, Miles landed a career with global company ‘Hong Kong Dairy Farm’ (who own Woolworths in New Zealand.)
Miles relocated and spent 2 years opening high revenue turnover supermarkets. He went from Wellington, to Napier to Rotorua,
Miles then moved back to Australia and spent the rest of his 20’s turning around large retail businesses, his best result being a ‘Franklin’s Big Fresh’ store in the west of Sydney, Australia. Where he altered the course of the business from $2million loss to profit, and steadily improved the ongoing profitability of the business over 18 months.
In 2003, Business Sight was formed. Miles saw that he had a proven formula for success in business and wanted to share this with as many business owners as possible.
Over the last 10 years, Miles has shared his formula for success through his programs and workshops with over 1,600 business owners across Australia.
Now creating workshops for businesses (no matter the stage or type of business) to help them produce the kind of results business owners are looking to produce.
