Since 1987, when George and Margaret Beaton founded Beaton Research + Consulting, the business has become the recognised leader in advising professional services firms in Australia and also to many of the globalising firms originating from the US, Canada, UK, South Africa and New Zealand. For over 25 years the company has presented hundreds of seminars and conferences, many under the First Movers brand that have been attended by most professional services firm leaders.
In 2009 Beaton Capital was founded to expand the research services into strategic and M&A advisory for professional services firms, both in Australia and internationally. Beaton Capital also produced conferences and seminars that proved highly successful covering topics such as growth strategies, M&A and succession.
beatonlive, founded in 2015, is the single home for all Beaton events. It provides a central point of access and contact for all our event clients and streamlines the process of booking and managing event logistics. In response to requests from our clients, beatonlive will also be the platform from where we expand our event topics and the number of events we run in Australia and overseas.
beatonlive events will continue to be based on the leading and insightful research undertaken by both sister companies, our goal is to continue to challenge and inform our clients, hence our tag line:
