Mr Newman says those in the business world have a "mixed view" of Mr Turnbull.

"There's a view that he will lead them along and then suddenly let them go and that their expectations are not fulfilled," he said.

"There've been a number of examples of that... I think there are people who would point to the fact that their expectations based on what he has said haven't actually come to fruition."

Mr Newman was appointed chair of the Business Advisory Council under Tony Abbott's leadership and he told Lateline he still holds that role.

"The Prime Minister, Mr Turnbull, has given me the assurance that I'm still the chairman of the Business Advisory Council. He said that it would meet early in this new year, which it hasn't yet done. He would then decide as to whether he would continue with it," he said.

A spokesman for Mr Turnbull told Lateline: "In November 2015, Prime Minister Turnbull wrote to all BAC members thanking them for their service and informing them a formal advisory group will no longer meet."
