Gold Coast & Brisbane Business Consultant

Our Experience

djrconsultants has been created by Darren Rice, a specialist business consultant 

Darren is originally from the UK where in 1991, at the age of 21, he started his first business - Cromwell Business Systems. www.cromwells.co.uk

With his business partner, David Massot, Cromwell Business Systems (CBS) developed a stock management/point of sale computer system for tv/hifi stores in the UK & Ireland. 

Starting as a 2 man operation the business grew to employ over 60 staff, and had approximately 3000 end users. In the year 2000 Cromwell became a leading supplier of E-Commerce systems and were at the forefront of web development.

In 2004 Darren had the opportunity to sell his interests in the business to his partner, David, and move to Australia with his then young family.

Cromwell is still going strong to this day and David would be happy to provide a reference to anyone wishing to engage the services of djrconsultants. 

Between 2004-2010 Darren spent time raising his young family and made a number of investments. One of the investments was in a new emerging drilling technology for the oil & gas industry.

In 2010 Darren co-founded Midland, Texas-based Radial Drilling company, Zero Radius Laterals (ZRL). In 2016 Darren then successfully merged ZRL with Coal Bed Methane Innovations (CBMI), of Brisbane Australia, and created V2H International. Darren was the CEO – Director of V2H International.


During the last decade, Darren was involved in the creation of an Australian Subsidiary,  completing a multi-million dollar capital raise, securing and  deploying commercial contracts with major Australian Oil & Gas operators. In 2017 Darren was instrumental in the award of a $1,000,000 federal government grant, to assist with the commercialisation of Radial Drilling Technology, which was a personal highlight in a long and successful business career.
