In fact, Matt and his team had steered the business through substantial growth and had just secured investment to expand further.
Alcidion – Culture Of Success
Alcidion had recently acquired three other companies. Managing Director, Kate Quirke, knew that they needed to do some work to position the business well for the growth opportunities that lay ahead. So, she read the Scaling Up book. It resonated with Kate personally as a systematic and proven framework that she could use as the basis for the work she wanted to do within the business. “I knew the business was about to grow and I understood that we needed to do that in a systematic way,” explains Kate. “Scaling Up just made sense. I looked up coaches on the Scaling Up website and was drawn to Anna Samios’s profile. I engaged her as our coach to help us implement Scaling Up in the business.
Altis Consulting – Shares His Secret To Success
When a successful CEO tells you growth is not his number one priority, you immediately ask, what is? For John Hoffman, CEO of Altis Consulting, the answer is definitive – his team comes first. “We will give up growth to make sure that we have an engaged, high-quality team that loves what they do every day.” For ten years running, Altis Consulting has made the Australian Financial Review’s ‘Best Places to Work’* list. It’s a recognition that validates the company’s founding vision – to grow a living company that would continue to be prosperous in 100 years.

Launching a new product into the market is challenging, but launching at the beginning of a global pandemic is a whole other ball game. This is exactly where Brendan Roberts, founder and CEO of Auckland based SaaS start-up Aider, found himself during the first COVID-19 lockdown. Brendan had already committed to the Anna Samios Scaling Up Leaders’ Program and it turned out to be a silver lining amidst the uncertainty. The opportunity gave him space to assess how he could lead his business through this unprecedented crisis.
