Our team

The small team at Bay is dedicated to helping executives tackle the issues of running a business in a dynamic and competitive environment.

We work collaboratively with clients to resolve business challenges ranging from clarifying their strategic direction to building the leadership capability of their executives to successfully implement change as well as running team acceleration workshops to build cohesive teams committed to getting results.

We have worked with many of Australia’s leading companies both large and small to clarify their direction, build their capability and resourcefulness, and enhance top management’s – leadership, team focus and collaboration.

Being a small practice, we have also worked with many other consultancies in a collaborative team-based environment to bring the best possible solutions to clients by blending capabilities and approaches with the client’s own resources.

There are two professors writing madly on a white board – a long formula leads to a result – in the middle of the formula is a small box that is central to the success of the formula – one professor turns to the other and comments – “Perhaps we need to explain this a bit more? The words in the box read “The Miracle Happens Here!”

The miracle of the modern organization is leadership and people – talent makes capital dance and will increasingly do so in a rapidly changing and demanding world.

My name is Shane Stewart and I have a belief that talented leaders and passionate people can envision and build compelling futures for their business and thereby create the future.

When you meet people they often ask and what do you do? My cheeky response these days is that I am a Possibility Worker! For a few, that response ensures it’s the end of the conversation or as far as you read, maybe?

I am passionately energized about how we bring the best out of businesses and people:

What’s possible – where are we heading?

What are the strengths that we can leverage, where are the opportunities for improvement?
What are we doing well now and how do we do more of that?

What’s outdated about our thinking – What do we have to unlearn?

What are the weak signals in our market that we have to listen to?

What’s on the fringe of our market, we better find out because soon that fringe will be the centre – the future has already happened but its just not widely known!

Are we doing the wrong thing really well, while we should be doing the new thing poorly as well learn to adapt to the new right thing? How do we support our talented people through the transition?

What do we have to protect about what we are currently doing?

Who are our very best at what we do and can we transfer those mind-sets and behaviors to everybody?

Businesses are important because they are responsible for what the future may look like and they are where many of us spend a lot of time. They can lift us up or bring us down!

I want to help leaders and people build a better future.

I do most of my work in organizations as part of my four-part role of Consultant, Facilitator, Coach and increasingly as Confidant or sounding board.

I started my professional career as an accountant, and then I quickly moved into investment banking and then on to consulting. I have helped start and grow three consulting practices and know what’s it like to be kept awake at night focused on business issues, like getting growth, a changing competitive landscape, cash-flow and “problem-children” in the business and well as the excitement of nailing a critical deal and having a winning year.

I have qualifications in commerce (accounting, banking and finance), management (strategy and marketing) and business administration.
