Past clients have their say...
Paul’s training value in our multi-location fitness business has been very pleasurable as we have continued our growth and success. Paul invested the time in the early days to get to understand our business and management structure as well as our team of people and he has continued to challenge the leaders of our group. We see this now as a business partnership with Paul whereby he has a vested interest in our success and his passion for us to succeed is extremely motivating.
Paul has helped me grow both professionally and personally as I now definitely know how to back myself in, as I have the confidence in myself and knowledge in what I am doing. My belief in my work is now sky high.
Brent Woodhead - Director FSO & Elevate Escapes
Thank you Paul for facilitated our Marketing session yesterday - you were engaging and adjusted your presentation perfectly to the group.
We had 15 attendees all with differing knowledge (& opinions), Paul managed the group very well, was very practical, generated some lively & interesting discussion whilst giving us a huge amount of knowledge – both academic & practical.
This is the first type of educational session that the new Chamber of Commerce has organised & I was quite apprehensive – as it is a reflection on us obviously if it isn’t seen as a worthwhile & valuable – but I was delighted with the session, the outcomes & the ‘take-away’ knowledge.
Sue Johnson - Williamstown Chamber of Commerce
Paul challenged us more than we could have imagined. Our off-site led to a noticeable shift in how our operational team now work. The list of achievements since our conference is as long as my arm. We will continue our work with Paul for our full journey.
Brett Connell - CEO, The Victorian Amateur Football Association
Paul’s presentation style is very invigorating and the whole leadership group lifted during his session. It is now our job to take action with our teams.

Sybille Taylor - Media & Communications Manager, Diabetes Australia
I learnt how to strengthen relationships in the workplace, which is exactly what I needed as a first time manager.
Stephen Sowbuth, Workshop Manager, Valmet
Paul helped us right from the beginning of a new venture of considerable size. From the very start it felt like we had our own expert, not only working with us but very much for us. He was dedicated to our success and felt like part of our team.
His work has resonated in our business and I now keep in contact with Paul for guidance to this day many years after he moved to Australia.
Adam Snare – Salon Owner & Mentor, Salon Freedom UK
Thanks Paul, for your work with our managers of the past 12 months. They have all gained a different perspective of working on the business. It can be seen clearly in the way they interact with other team members and also in the conversations I have with them. Thanks again
Paul Divin - Multi-Location Fitness Franchise Owner
I have had a great time learning from Paul. I have learnt so much and feel like I am still only scratching the surface. I love managing business, and I want to be the best leader I can be.
During my work with Paul, I have learnt the important steps to managing people effectively. I have always found it hard to get good performance out of certain characters in my teams. Now I know why. I have learnt to delegate better, run team meetings that now give the team so much value, and I have even built succession into my small team.
I can’t wait to delve into the next levels Paul has to offer and receive more Instructional Sessions to catapult my growth even further.
Thanks Paul – it’s been an eye-opening ride!
Andrew Trombetta – Gym Owner Operator, Jetts Gyms

Jose Torres - Workshop Engineer, Valmet
I started managing a hair salon not long ago and had a huge amount of help from Paul on how to run a business. He gave great guidance in making our salon grow.
Not only have I learnt different strategies, but also, overtime I have watched our salon expand. It has been sooo rewarding!
Thank you so much for everything Paul!

Natalie Ambrosi - Manager, The Blowout Bar
Working with Paul has been a massive eye opener for myself personally. I was fairly new to the role of manager when we first started the program so there was plenty for me to learn and to improve on.
Paul has been extremely supportive & helpful throughout the experience and has taken the time to help out whenever I required it.
All of the topics that I needed guidance on were met thoroughly, with a clear goal and outline always set.
I’ll be using these tools for a long time to come. I couldn't recommend Paul more!
Steve Morahan - Gym Manager & Firefighter
