I love to teach, educate and mentor. It is in my blood. I have been a High Scool teacher, Swimming teacher, University lecturer, Retail Store Manager and Owner and worked in leadership positions in the corporate world.
I really do love to share what I know and work with clients that are thirsty for more knowledge. It is a win win situation.
Just wanted to let you know how incredibly valuable both the business review and the retail overhaul has been. Not only was it 2 days of total attention to my business and physical space, but you also travelled thousands of kms to remote Central Western Queensland! And although you both might be hard and true Melbournites, everything you had to offer translated perfectly to this very different context. In fact on day 2 we witnessed immediate results with sales we never thought we could do. I can’t thank you enough. And… the journey has just begun! I’m looking forward to continuing working with you as an official client over the next 12 months.

Thank you so much for our session the other week, it definitely helped me tick off all the goals and got me into gear. I felt the experience was tailored to what I was needing and not just a generic service for all businesses.
It is probably the best thing I have done to seek out advice and set up a game plan for starting up.
Thanks again for all your help!

SHAKE THINGS UP
Don't stand still or you will become a fossil. Challenge yourself, your business, your brand and embrace ‘new & different'. Is what you're doing still valuable in your industry, still profitable? What can you add to your brand offering that will help you grow and excel. Take a risk. Not too big, but risk is good.
We see things with fresh eyes. We step into your space, into your zone and review what you're doing and how you're doing it. Are you doing it right for now, for the current market? Have you evolved with your customers (new & old)? Could you be doing things better? We will tell you, no BS involved.
EVOLVE & GROW
If you don’t evolve, make changes and try things differently, we can guarantee you your competitors will. So let us help you grow into a better version of your current self. What worked back then doesn't now. People have changed, our lifestyles have evolved and we now live in a global market, not the Australian market. So you need to embrace change in order to maintain and grow success.
