About Us

Time and time again, we see the power of partnering a Tradie with someone with business experience and financial skills. 

As mentors our preferred approach is to “teach you how to fish”, working with you to identify an overcome the things getting in your way.  

Our programs were developed with a team of industry specialists in sales, negotiation, recruitment, staffing, taxation, wealth creation and financial management, which we are able to draw on to fast track your business results. 

Our programs comprise business-training, specialist mentoring and ongoing support from financial experts to help tradies build a viable blueprint for a thriving business. Learn more about becoming a member and the program benefits.

The Founder

Tradie Accelerator is the brainchild of business and management consultant, Fergus Watt. Fergus realised that while tradies were great at their trade, they often struggled with the skills needed for running a business.

Seeing talented tradespeople earning less than they deserve just didn’t seem right.

Using his financial expertise and business skills, Fergus founded Tradie Accelerator, business training and mentoring programs designed to meet the challenges and opportunities faced by Tradies.
