About Brien Lynch

Brien has a passion for business.

Through his 23 years in the insurance industry, including over 15 years in private practice, Brien has worked with a wide range of businesses focussing primarily on risk management issues. With exposure to such a broad range of industries Brien has developed a unique ability to understand the operations of many different businesses and quickly identify strengths and weaknesses.

In October 1997 Brien entered into a partnership and became Managing Director of Insurance Options Pty Ltd. In June 2002 Brien took full ownership of the company and with restructuring, created a much more profitable business. It was this restructuring process that awakened in Brien the possibility that through careful strategic planning it is possible for many if not all SME enterprises to generate growth and improve productivity.

In June 2011, Brien’s passion for business led to his decision to leave the insurance industry and start a Business Consultancy practice. Affiliating with MAUS Business Systems as an accredited partner, he now has the backing and support of a global network of professionals to help deliver Business Planning and Support Services to his clients at a local level.

Brien’s belief is that there is always room for improvement. He has the skills, experience and access to market leading business software and support services to enable his clients improve their business practices and profitability whilst simultaneously improving the work\life balance for business owners and staff.

Running a business should be fun, exciting and provide reward for effort and risk. However all too often the burdens of operating a business become overwhelming and the fun, excitement and rewards can quickly disappear.

Whether it is declining sales, shrinking profits, staff issues or simply too much to do and not enough time to do it, business owners are faced with numerous challenges on a daily basis.

Our ambition is to help ease the pressures of running a business and ensure it remains fun and profitable to do so. That’s why we started PlanAction.
