About

Zero Five Right

Hello,

I’m Mike, founder of Zero Five Right. This is a business which I created to allow me to follow my passion of engaging with positive, proactive businesses who have identified that they need a helping hand from someone who specialises in making the most of efficient, effective technologies.

Why the picture of me and the helicopter? I’m also a pilot, and rather than a homogenous suit and tie pic this provides another dimension to me; one that hopefully makes you more inquisitive. More importantly though, I’m also a husband and father and I see my role, in Zero Five Right, as helping your business be more efficient and successful, so you also have time to be “you”.

When I get time to be me, I enjoy donating my skills and experience to community causes such as building a certified flight simulator for the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust where I get to combine my love of flying with my love of technology. The simulator is used for pilot training and saves the Trust thousands of dollars per training hour.

I was also one of the original founders of Startup Weekends in New Zealand and have been involved in Startup Weekend events since 2011. Meeting and working with aspiring entrepreneurs has been truly inspirational over the years.

Technology can often be overwhelming, when it’s not part of an owner’s core business. Especially when there are so many options that can be considered. This is an area that I not only specialise in, but I’m passionate about, and since you are reading this I can confidently say with 100% certainty, we will be able help you identify the best tools which will provide measurable results to your staff, clients & business.

Whether you are a start-up or a more mature business we have a wide range of experience and perspectives that can make a difference to your business. In this ever-changing world of online presence, analysis, marketing, social media communication & reporting there is plenty for us to consider.

While I have earned the trust of many businesses and organisations over the years, we don’t know each other yet. The next step is in your hands. I hope my note gives you the confidence to pick up the phone or drop me a note, now. I also love a good coffee, so why not meet for one while we discuss the problem you want to solve in your business?

How can I be of assistance? (Procrastination is the thief of time)

Mike Zeff

… with the world’s first civilian surf rescue helicopter operation.

Auckland Rescue Helicopter’s mission is to ensure that the communities of the greater Auckland region have the security of a professional, efficient, emergency air ambulance, search and rescue service available to them anytime.

I am proud to have also built the world’s first BK117 flight training device (flight sim) for ARHT. It is certified by the New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority and used regularly for pilot training saving thousands of dollars per training hour.
