Straight out of University, Chris started a software business and grew the business to 20+ staff and greater than $2m revenue per annum. After 20 years the business was sold to an ASX listed company. The largest deal won was a $10m project to create an enterprise CRM & Billing engine for a large Energy Utility. After selling the software business, Chris wasn’t allowed back into the software industry for 5 years. Chris went back to university and completed a Masters in Coaching Psychology and established Harasty Consulting, a business coaching and sales training business. Over the last 15 years Harasty Consulting has focused on helping SMEs achieve results that far exceed the owner’s business goals


Dan Ussher, Director, FirmGuard - There are dozens of social media lead generation solutions in the market and we found them to be basically all the same. Luckily, we came across Essential Leads Australia. It has been amazing. It consistently adds more than 600 good connections a month and it is completely automatic. I don’t have to spend any time on it.

Andrew Hall, Managing Director, Factory One - Factory One is a print and design business than has been in business for more than 20 years. In a tough market we engaged Essential Leads Australia to help with our lead generation. The reason we picked Essential is because they specialise in LinkedIn lead generation and we are a supplier to businesses not consumers. The service has exceeded our expectations and now our problem is that we have too many opportunities.

Matt D’Astoli, Director, Faster Networks - Essential Leads Australia provides an excellent social media marketing service, always responsive and essential in the development of an important marketing strategy… highly recommended to any organisation which needs a customised outreach program.

Tristram Morgan, Managing Director, 365 Solutions Group - Having used a couple of different outsourced marketing specialists for LinkedIn campaigns in the past, and been very unhappy with the results as well as approach, I was skeptical when recommended to use Essential Leads for the same purpose. I trust the person who referred me implicitly and they told me they were having great results within only a few weeks of starting a campaign, which was quite astounding compared to my previous experience, as well as what most people offering this service will set as expectations. I have been extremely pleasantly surprised with both the quality of the work performed by Chris and the team at Essential leads, as well as the incredible results. We have had a massive acceptance rate for messages to connect with people, as well as invitation to joins a group we’re involved in, which has generate more leads than we can keep up with! The know their stuff, and are really proactive and informative, so I can strongly recommend engaging the team there if you want to reach more prospects and initiate more conversations with your ideal clients.
