“Thanks for the past six months of coaching, do appreciate every moment and have benefited a lot from it.” EL, CEO, Retailer & Distributor


“I must say your advices have been really an eye opener and make a lot of sense; things that we know we already know but take lightly and not seriously. I will have to have a better and clearer objective for the future. It has been my problem that I have no clear solid Objective or “the Tree at the end of the Field”. It is only when I solve this problem myself that I can take the next step.” OA CEO, Entrepreneur, Developer

“Denise is an excellent coach. She is always poised, very quick to build rapport and displayed first class skill-sets. She constantly leads her trainees to reflect on their people management issues with questions.

I am always able to reflect on every session and practice them with great success.” Deputy Director, Public Service Organization

“The Career Plan exercise was extremely useful when I went for interviews. It gave me a clear idea of what I wanted. I could see if they were offering the terms and conditions that would satisfy me now and in the years to come. I was no longer being a passive spectator of my own life.” Client

“The ‘Negotiate your salary and terms’ package definitely helped me achieve the package I wanted. I sat with my exercise sheet with the 2 positions “would like” and “must get” completed for this job. I followed your advice and the final total package was higher than first discussed.” mid-Career University Lecturer


“I have had a passion for Aerospace since I was a kid, due to financial restrictions I was not able to follow this career path and ended up in the IT world. After about 25 years in IT and having left my last job I sought help from John and Sandy to help me penetrate the Aerospace Industry. During numerous brainstorm sessions (welcome to the torture room!) we mapped out a plan of attack which resulted in building a great database of contacts and job interviews in the Aerospace Industry. We all have dreams, passion in our life, I can highly recommend John and Sandy to help you make those real.” Yves Dehouck, VP
