What People Say

Kellie and I have worked together in different capacities for over 5 years. I would describe Kellie as a true capability professional with high self-awareness and personal integrity. Kellie engages at any level of an organisation with confidence. Her deep expertise in learning, capability development, setting and executing strategy, team leadership and drive to make a difference is nothing short of impressive.

Head of Capability & Development – Lending Services, National Australia Bank

Kellie is a passionate advocate in developing people to their full potential: either through her own style in leading teams or through professionally working with clients to build and deliver the case for improving performance through people.

Kellie is a rare leader who enables and empowers her people, giving them the confidence to succeed. Both strategic and pragmatic, she is adept at navigating complex organisational environments to connect the dots between vision and tactical delivery. Kellie is highly regarded for her integrity, authenticity and exceptional stakeholder management.

Brand Identity Manager – National Australia Bank

I had the great fortune of working with Kellie closely over the last few months, and I can not say enough about her abilities. I count Kellie in a very small and exclusive club around personal experience in her Leadership capability and integrity. The culture and environment Kellie creates for her team enables high degrees of performance, innovation, collaboration and trust. It was an honour to have been part of it, albeit briefly. In my experience, Kellie is an industry leader in progressive and unique approaches to development of capability, and her strategies around ensuring commitment to learning are, in my opinion world class. Any Business or Department that is contemplating the role of learning to assist in maximising performance, should look no further than Kellie to lead the charge.

The time Trent spent with our sales team was invaluable! He provided our team with new key skills and practical knowledge they could apply in their positions immediately. Trent’s delivery is creative, accessible and on the whole lots of fun! The team are much more confident as a result of this training.

Senior Consultant, Leadership – National Australia Bank

Trent assisted AAA Tourism with training a large group of sales account managers, the majority fresh in their roles. Trent is a great educator, totally engaging, and a true professional. He is “passion extreme”, and without his help our sales campaigns would not have run as successfully. I don’t get to work with Trent as much as I would like, and that’s disappointing as his dedication to education is motivating and contagious. I would urge you to get to know Trent, and if you want to learn more about how he can assist you and your staff, get in touch with him….NOW!
