What our clients have to say


Allens Law Firm

Janey’s understanding and knowledge of the importance of strategic direction in a business environment is clearly evident in her approach to developing others. She challenges participants to think big, to think broad, and to think strategically by deepening our appreciation and understanding of the important role each of us play within our organisations. Her delivery and application facilitated a committee-like discussions and sharing of  ideas and experiences, whilst learning at the same time – she is incredibly effective in the way she facilitates!

Janey’s breadth of experience across all leadership competencies is truly remarkable and commendable! Her ‘whole brain’ approach enables participants to maximise their learning and be stronger leaders back in their organisations, whilst applying strategies in a practical business sense. She made herself available for additional coaching and support in order for us to be comfortable and stay on track throughout the program– greatly appreciated by all participants! I came away from her strategic leadership program empowered and confident in my ability to be an effective and valuable strategic manager and leader.

I am incredibly grateful to have had Janey’s support and share my journey with such an inspiring educator and woman.

They touch base with each other every morning and discuss the issues with a Whole Brain Thinking process. I have to say it’s made a whole world of difference, so thank you!

Thank you Janey for agreeing to be a part of our Glen Eira May Small Business Month both sessions  ‘Strategic Planning’ and ‘ Brain Power’  – (Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument).

Your ‘Brain Power ‘ session on working with different thinking styles using the HBDI tool is something the world needs a lot more of. There were many ahha!  moments. 
The audience feedback included the following: ‘brilliant, superb, excellent, insightful, informative, best presentation I have been to, and this was the most insightful session’.  
This is an empowering model which holds the potential to create a more tolerant and productive mindset reaching far beyond the workplace.

The strategic planning workshop was equally well received . Our participants feedback was ‘Well presented, challenging and provision of useful worksheets for future reference ‘, 
‘Provided me with good grounding on how to turn my business around and grow it ‘
‘Janey structures and runs her workshop so well that I would like to do more with her in the future.’

E & S Trading

The delivery of the HBDI model by Janey, was fantastic. The entire group was sincerely engaged and interested to learn more about themselves and others thinking preference. Janey’s ability to encourage the group to uncover their thinking styles created a great dynamic within the team that allowed them to explore and engage in a thought process that discovered their key strengths as well as preferred areas for development. As the session progressed everyone was keen to identify their own preferred thinking style and how they responded to things under pressure. Some of the best outcomes of the day were created through the groups awareness and understanding of thinking in alternate preferences, together with the importance of how this information can be used to explore a diverse range of options to develop a whole brain approach to so many areas of our business. We look forward to the continuity and success of using the HBDI model in our business.

The Graphic Quill

Hello Janey, 

I just wanted to let you know that I found  your “What if”  strategic planning program to be really interesting, fabulously informative and very thought provoking.  Your presentation and all your material flowed in such a way that allowed me to build up a picture of what my business is, how I operate and most importantly who my customers are and how to gain an understanding of what it is that they might want from me in terms of product and services. You gave us tools the caused us to think about how we can move forward.  The pace at which you moved through was perfect, with no time wasted. Time where we could develop firm ideas and have plenty of information to  further apply the process. Thanks for everything – you have put me on the right track for great business development.
Many, many thanks again,

Lauchean Duncan – Calligrapher/Designer & Manager

Retirement Village Association

Janey is a breath of fresh air. From the moment I sat down for the course, Janey emanated passion for sharing her knowledge and experience. Although she is very encouraging of drawing your own conclusions she has a balanced faciltation  style of guiding her disciples to think outside of the box. Strategy and business is not always according to the text book and Janey really brought her personal experience and professional expertise to each session. I was able to get to know more about myself and leadership  style throughout her sessions and with use of the HBDI theory results.

Thank you Janey!
