It may seem counter-productive to shift a business’s focus from sales and marketing towards stress management or strengthening relationships with industry competitors.  How about only having the one email address to utilise across the entire company?  Or allowing team members to only work within their ‘Zone of Genius’?  Aaron Christie-David has challenged the rulebook and he is here to tell us how…   

On The Dent Podcast, we interview key people of influence in all walks of life. We delve deep to unearth how these successful people got to where they are, their trials and tribulations, as well as their successes, and what their experiences can teach us all.

Managing Director of Atelier Wealth and Finance Broker Aaron Christie – David sits down with host Glen Carlson to reflect upon and explain the thinking behind some of the pivots in business principles at Atelier Wealth and how the mortgage broking and investment specialist firm has only benefited.

Aaron puts emphasis on lifestyle and creating a workplace that thrives on bringing in more than just cashflow.  His high regard for the customer experience helps sustain Atelier Wealths presence in a highly competitive market.  The approach has delivered and brought the team a slew of awards and commendations, including being named as one of the top 10 property specialists in Australia for 2019.
