Striive Founder & Business Consultant – Paul Coniglio

Paul-Coniglio_Paul Coniglio is the founder and director of Striive Consulting, Melbourne.

Striive Consulting was born out of Paul’s passion for working with and nurturing small business owners.

After working in his family’s business for over 15 years, Paul developed a range of skills and experience that adds value to all types of people and communities and makes him a highly successful Melbourne business consultant. It seemed everywhere he went, he’d ask “So how’s business?” and it would inevitably end up in a conversation about how the person he was speaking to could grow their business or discussing ways to handle a particular challenge the business was facing.

After starting in the family business at age 17, Paul worked his way through a number of jobs in the company such as Sales Rep, Branch Manager, Product Development & Marketing Manager to rise to the position of General Manager in 2013. In his time as GM, he delivered 53% top line sales growth and improved the businesses bottom line 5 fold in his first year in the top job.

Throughout his 15 year journey, Paul developed a number of key areas of expertise that can be customised to suit anyone looking for a business consultant who provides coaching and mentoring to help achieve your goals. Paul is naturally entrepreneurial and has a solid understanding of what makes businesses tick. He possess natural emotional intelligence and he has the smarts to capitalise on a good opportunity when he sees one.

In his own business as a business consultant, coach and mentor, Paul can be fully independent and this allows him to be unbiased and look at the business from a strategic point of view rather than transactional.

Some of Paul’s key areas of experience include:

  • Business Planning & Strategy
  • Market & Competitor Analysis
  • Marketing & Social Media
  • Building & developing Teams
  • Mentorship to develop key people in organisations
  • Website & e-Commerce Development
  • Sales Management & Lead Generation

Paul is currently a member of the Pay It Forward Business Network in Bayside – a local business networking group that donates all of its profits to local community charitable organisations including a weekly free hot breakfast program for people in need.
