Hi I’m Kursten Shalfoon thanks for taking a look around my site.
Starting out just like you I have been a member of the NZICA since 1994 and a CA since 1996. I as a CA for the first 10 years of my career before moving into sales and marketing roles. I have had almost a decade of General Management, Board of Director and Senior Executive experience to some of New Zealand’s largest and most successful companies.
The roles included a six year stint at Vodafone NZ where I had a number of GM roles including Consumer Marketing, Pricing and Brand & Comms. I then moved to APN where I was the CMO and was responsible for leading on company and market strategy, particularly the incubation of new business models (including partnering and acquisition projects).
For the past two years I have been helping businesses with strategy, marketing strategy and marketing, ultimately helping them gain new customers and win in the market. Working with one of my clients who is a CA I realised that no one is equipping you with the tools you need to grow your business.
I have three consulting practices:
- The Exponential Agency: Helping large companies and corporates survive and thrive in the digital age
- Market Fit: Helping businesses get customer validated answers to their difficult questions
- KS Consulting: Helping service businesses grow through their volume and value of customers.
With KS Consulting I have therefore taken everything that I have learnt from some of NZ’s biggest companies and my consulting career to develop a program to help you position yourself and gain a predictable pipeline of customers
Along with my CA qualification I am a member of the Institute of Directors, hold a Bachelor of Commerce in Finance and Marketing from Auckland University and an MBA from the Henley Management College, UK
I work with a limited number of businesses every month. If you’re a service professional of financial advisor, accountant, lawyer, then I will show and train you in systems that will constantly and consistently grow your business in volume and value of customers.
If you click the link below you can book directly into my calendar an obligation free 45 minute strategy session where I’ll map out an exact action plan for you to follow so that you can hit your sales goals. This call will probably be the most valuable 45 mins you spend working on your business this year…
