Presenter: Bill McGowan - Author & Consultant

Bill McGowan is the author of the newly released book “Be Your Own Boss”, and leads the W.A.M Consultants advisory team, solving business challenges, that improve growth and efficiency. 

Bill has been self-employed in various businesses since the 70’s, starting and selling many businesses over the past 50 years.  In early 1983, he established the franchised business known as Fastway Couriers.  


Fastway became a household name in Australia and New Zealand in the transport and franchising sectors. The business was also developed internationally. When he started Fastway, he was shocked at how many potential franchisees had no idea about running their own business, so Bill developed many franchisee training programs and manuals to assist them in understanding how to operate their own business.  


Bill has extensive business experience and has been a guest speaker for many years at conferences & corporate events in over 30 Countries around the world, focusing on topics such as franchising, goal setting, growing sales, managing sales teams, team building, corporate change, motivation, marketing, recruitment, logistics, business & market place change, research and business planning.
