We needed a dynamic and engaging speaker and trainer to present a series of workshops to our high potential women across four business units. A colleague recommended Toni to us and Toni’s been excellent! Toni was easy to work with and she created relevant and inspiring content. Toni took the time to find out what really mattered to our people and tailored the workshops accordingly. She delivered clear, strong and practical messages with humour and certainly retained the attention of our team members. It was also a really nice touch for us to be able to gift a copy of Toni’s book ‘Your Bigger Game’ to our team members. I would, and have, recommended Toni as a great speaker, trainer and facilitator to other businesses.

As they say, you only get out of it what you put in. This is one of the rare occasions where I was brutally honest about my fears and shortcomings preventing me from being a better leader. Without doing this I was only kidding myself. Toni was able to isolate the issues and provide a workable approach. I found Toni easy to work with and believe this is why I found the coaching sessions very productive and liberating. I now have practical and relevant processes that focus on my core leadership development areas

Her style is warm and supportive, yet demanding. She brings a laser sharp focus in getting to the heart of the matter.

When Toni and I first spoke about the potential for her to help me with my first 90 days in a new job, I was a bit skeptical. This wasn’t the first time that I’d started a new job, far from it. Plus, I’ve read and even acted on the book “The First 90 Days”. Still, I was curious to see what additional value could be added and I was super-keen to perform at my best in the new role and organisation, so we started working together. Over the next few months, Toni helped me to “chunk up my thinking” and focus on the big picture at times when the pace and volume of new content threatened to relegate my thinking too deeply into detail. Toni asked thought-provoking questions which helped me to broad-scan my new environment and the eco-system in which we act. She challenged me to prioritise my learning plan, which accelerated my learning. Toni took care to personalise the experience to my needs and specific role. I’m confident that all of this assisted me to perform at my best and to really “hit the ground running” in my new career step.

Owner Core Potential, Melbourne

As a new Manager within a growing team and organisation Toni’s leadership coaching came at the perfect time. Toni delves deep down into leadership and has an adaptable, warm and positive approach. I found Toni encouraged me to look at who I really wanted to be as a leader. Toni asks the hard questions and at the same time is a patient and understanding guide. The coaching sessions were a reminder that leaders must always carve out time to work on their self-development, be conscious about how they show up and for us all to get out of our own way. Any leader is guaranteed to be enlightened by Toni’s coaching purely because of who she is and the knowledge and information she imparts.

Manager, Leadership Development Program, FleetPartners

The thought and planning put into the program was great. Often people don’t feel like they can speak up because they aren’t comfortable but this was great where people could be really open. We addressed current issues in our business eg: culture, change management and I can apply the concepts we learned to our current realities.
