McGee & Partners was founded with a genuine ambition: to help build our nation’s creative economy by inspiring and empowering small businesses to succeed.
Our mission is to level the business and financial acumen playing field, freeing creative companies to focus on innovation and compete on their originality — in the most profitable way!
How we do it
We specialise in bringing your creative workflow, financial and performance management systems together, so they work hard for you.
Whether we’re undertaking a performance review of your agency or training your staff, you’ll enjoy simple, clear guidance informed by nearly 20 years helping creative businesses of every size to close their profit gaps.
What success looks & feels like
Life changes when you can capture the real-time, accurate data you want, and then use it to measure performance, manage your business and predict the future. The sun comes out. You sleep at night. And numbers suddenly aren’t as boring – or frightening – as you thought. Because now you’re making brilliantly informed business decisions and you’re more profitable than you ever imagined.
And when you’re an expert on your own business – you’re a roaring success.
Australia boasts an incredibly rich and diverse array of creative entrepreneurs and talent. In fact, there’s compelling evidence pointing to the growing role creative services play in our nation’s economy.
Amid all this innovation and start-up hype sits the sobering statistic that more than half of small businesses fail in their first three years of trading, mainly due to poor strategic management, inadequate cash flow or high cash use. While we wish we could wave a wand over the past, McGee & Partners was born to change the future by building our nation’s creative economy, helping businesses to help themselves and setting them up with the tools to succeed.
It was creative systems and business expert Michael McGee who picked up the gauntlet and founded McGee & Partners in collaboration with leading industry experts and the backing of world-class business workflow, financial and prediction systems.
Today, McGee & Partners’ pioneering work transforms the innermost workings and profitability of all types and sizes of creative businesses through its consulting and advisory services, virtual training and peak industry body workshops.
There is no pillow so soft as peace of mind.
We help your business to help itself.
Inhale confidence. Exhale doubt. Repeat.
Set up your agency systems for business success.

Win Without Pitching
Michael is an astute financial consultant to creative firms and a valuable Win Without Pitching partner in Australia.
Mick has worked with us in several capacities over the past 10 years and has provided excellent financial support and advice.
Working with Mick showed me how I could stop working in my business and start working on it. Also allowing me to enjoy less hours in the office and keep the business profitable.
Unlike other financial consultants we have used in the past Michael’s in depth understanding of how a creative business operates really sets him apart. His insights around the challenges that are unique to our industry set the foundation for the solutions and processes that he implemented for us.
