GSD Lab 


Imagine if you had a team you could engage that have deep knowledge and experience in financial advice and can help you get sh!t done. Let us introduce you to GSD Lab – a new division of Elixir Consulting.  The team at GSD Lab understand how difficult it can be to find the extra time it takes to manage and build your special projects. They are the expert pair of hands every business wished they had – they take your strategy, plan it, build it and manage it for you. No extra headcount.

GSD Lab are a team of advice professionals helping you bring your ideas and strategy to life.

After years of consulting and coaching financial advisers around Australia on their business strategies, it was only natural for Elixir to evolve to launch GSD Lab – extending our support to help business owners implement their strategies.

Under the expert guidance of our Lana, GSD Lab is created to meet the needs of business owners who just can’t keep up with the increasing pressures of both working in their business and on it, and with a current skills shortage in advice, finding the right team members is increasingly difficult – especially for projects lasting short periods of time.

“It has been indispensable working with Lana throughout the period of enormous regulatory change and the massive business transformation that we have successfully undertaken, would’ve been very difficult without her support and specialist knowledge.”
