• Greg is a natural on the stage, is a wonderful story teller and given his sporting and industry experience he exudes honesty and insight. For everyone in the room, the day brings a number of ‘aha’ moments – ‘I get it!’ This is a formula that works not only for the company but for the team and the individual.

  • We had a vision to change the way mining was done in Africa and ‘Unearth Africa’s Potential’. We wanted some trusted, external eyes on our business from an experienced high performance coach and we initially turned to Greg for a different style of thinking to traditional mining to help us navigate. Over time, Greg provided critical insights and coaching to my executive team in relation to our vision, strategy, talent, leadership development, culture and critical business systems. Greg has played an important role in helping us transform the business performance so that now we have a platform for the next stage of our journey…growth.

  • A role like mine is, many times, exhausting, conflicting, confusing and huge. Greg helps me cut through the maize, to see more clearly, in the middle of so many issues, what is important and where my focus must lay. He is an integral part of helping Bravehearts make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child. I can not speak to highly of his capacity to cut through the forest of issues and find the tree of hope.

Want to work with us?

We help senior / middle managers like you build a track record and design a career blueprint to becoming a Chief if that’s what you really want. If not, that’s cool, because it’s not for everyone. We’ll just help you nail your current job.

We’re not into quick wins, ignoring weaknesses or working with pretenders.  Our coaching is about building you into an indispensable asset that is capable of handling the toughest situations big business has to offer over a long career. You have to want it, be willing to look inside yourself, learn loads of new skills, build your entourage and be committed to playing the long game. Anyway, that’s us. And if this is you, then we’re your crew.

Seriously, if you're after a bit more help then what's on the blog then this is how we work with our most valued customers.
