David Biddle - Business Broker & Negotiator

Hi, my name is David Biddle.

I’ve been in business all my career. Ever since I can remember I have been driven to increase business productivity and efficiency.

So I have little patience for services that are still delivered the same way as they were 20 years ago by industries fighting change rather than embracing it. To me ingrained inefficiency means a disruptive shake up is in order.

So when I looked into selling my own lifestyle business with a traditional broker a number of holes like…

– A lack of knowledge of my business
– A lack of knowledge of the market in which I operated
– A lack of enthusiasm to get me the best result
– An inflexible valuation method
– A staid approach to marketing
– A price tag of 8% of the sale price

… left me feeling very non-plussed to say the least.

I rolled up my sleeves and working with Deb Jeffreys we sold the business using a website and pro-active digital marketing.

We quickly secured a buyer who wasn’t actively looking for a business. In my view buyers are out there… they just need to be shown the opportunity!

My core values include honesty and integrity. I’ll work incredibly hard to get you the best price… but it’s also important to me that we get the right buyer for your business. I want to find you a buyer who will look after your team and help create the next successful chapter in your businesses story.

I’m also known for my tenacity and never, ever giving up. I work my socks off to get a great result for every client and think outside the box to find solutions to roadblocks.

Brilliant Partnership

I’m also creative by nature and have an eye for things that look beautiful. So being part of a digital marketing team and showcasing businesses on beautiful websites is an constant joy!

Working with Deb Jeffreys is a fantastic partnership. Deb’s experience of marketing businesses online goes back to 2000 – her depth and breath of knowledge impresses me every day.  She’s also a superb big picture thinker and when we brainstorm solutions to problems together the powerful results often surprise us both!
