Our founders had over 40 years combined experience in the communications industry, and spent the 10 years prior to founding Tick Boxer coaching creative businesses to achieve greater efficiency and higher margins, through the well respected Sydney-based operations consultancy, Adtopia.
They helped many businesses experiencing issues affecting profitability and workflow, and in many instances, these were resolved through the use of simple but well-designed solutions. The common thread running through all these businesses was a lack of time to focus on their own operations, or a lack of information available to help them develop solutions themselves.
So, Tick Boxer was created to provide more creative businesses with operational and commercial support to implement best-practice business process, without the need for extra staff or expensive consultants. Big industry brains at a fraction of the cost! Since then, what started as a sideline project for our founders has grown to assist thousands of creative businesses around the world to achieve greater efficiency and profitability.
We aim to give you all the tools and knowledge you need to make your workflow tight and your profits grow, so you spend less time sorting out problems and more time focusing on what you’re great at.
