Why Us

Business Action was born out of a desire to help mid-market New Zealand businesses grow. Having experienced the frustrations of more than 300 businesses she has consulted for the last 25 years, founder Debra Chantry-Taylor discovered the EOS framework and recognised the clarity and traction this could deliver.

Debra Chantry-Taylor | Professional EOS Implementer | The Entrepreneurial operating system

Business leadership is one of the most demanding yet rewarding journeys we can take. It’s a road full of unexpected challenges that you can only truly understand if you’ve been there.

We’ve been there.

And we know, though every business is unique, most businesses have the same fundamental issues. There is a wealth of strategy and leadership information out there, but most new ideas and new tools fail to deliver results. What is compelling about EOS is that rather than join the masses and claim every business needs a bespoke business plan, they’ve created a proven solution that addresses every day managerial and organisational challenges.

The EOS system delivers, on average, a 40% bottom line improvement through improved efficiencies and growth. So confident are they in the process, that each session is guaranteed – if you don’t get value, you don’t have to pay.

Benjamin Wilson

Director, The Little Linen Company (An established family owned business)

Debra’s input, guidance, introduction and implementation of the EOS structure, systems and processes are transformational for Cambridge Partners. I fully endorse engaging Debra to assist you and your business to clarify your values, vision, 1,3 and 10 year objectives. Plus the quarterly sessions are invaluable to help keep you on track and to deal/prioritise any issues that need to be dealt with.”

Richard Austin - Traction EOS Implementer Client

We’re about to hit our 12 month goals in the next month and we’re only 8 months into our year and our EOS journey. EOS / Traction has been a significant part of that outcome and we find our leadership sessions with Debra invaluable. We’ve just completed our 2nd EOS Quarterly Session. I can see how we gain more and more value from each session and we are appreciating in more depth how it all works together. My expectations were wildly exceeded and I am bloody excited about where we are going next.”

Richard Austin

Managing Partner & Visionary, Cambridge Partners

Debra has been working with Your Virtual Assistant since Covid hit in March and has helped us at a time when we’d hit the ceiling and were uncertain about the future. Using the EOS model and tools we’ve been able to go back to basics to ensure we have the foundation of a good business able to take on any uncertainty. It’s helped us to make huge gains in growth and solve some underlying issues we’ve struggled with for years.
Debra holds us accountable, she’s supportive but calls me out on my excuses (in a wonderful way!) and what I love the most is she shows us the way to reach our desired outcomes so it seems like the ideas are all ours … but we’d never see them without her help. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

Debra has been absolutely invaluable as our EOS facilitator and is a top class business coach. At a time when our business is going through a significant period of growth and change I can’t think of anyone who would have done a better job in bringing together our rejuvenated leadership team to rise to the challenge.”

Daniel McCarthy - Traction EOS Implementer Client

Just started our EOS journey with Debra, and she is great to deal with.

Straight shooter, empathetic, professional.

Daniel McCarthy

CEO & EOS Integrator, Mobile Mentor (2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year)

Debra just facilitated our 2nd quarterly EOS session. We had some issues that we felt were almost insurmountable but Debra was able to give us some tangible tools that turned our ‘Everests’ into mole hills and now we feel more confident tackling them.

I was nervous about doing the session virtually but it was the best facilitated virtual session that I have been part of. Some of it was without a doubt the technology but also Debra’s energy & facilitation skills made the 8 hours fly by.”
