Thanks For Voting Us The Most Successful Coaching Business

august 2012

Having been honored by receiving the Tamworth Chamber of Commerce Quality Business Award for Excellence in Professional Services on Friday night, as Director of ImagineMORE Excellence Coaching I sincerely thank and acknowledge those that have contributed.

To all the clients, locally and internationally, who have trusted me with their dreams, goals, hopes, desire for change and growth, you have given me so many wonderful opportunities to transform, develop and hone my abilities as a coach so that excellence is always the standard.  Professional confidentiality prevents me from naming you, but I honour the important role you have played – it’s more than you might know.

To all the ‘helpers’, you have become part of the ImagineMORE family by supporting our development in a gazillion ways. Thank you Adrian Doss, Mara Dedini, Barbara James, Margot Buchannan, Linda Hutchings, Geoff Clarke, Robert James, Leah Constable, Jenny Bowden, The Hansford family, Debbie Hubbard, Deanna Michelle and Rhonda Hills.

Of course I couldn’t be what I am without great leaders, both locally and internationally, who are providing guidance, coaching and mentoring and training. I sincerely thank you all.  I especially mention: Max Dunstan in Tamworth of MD Business CoachingIvan Deleon of Marketing Boost Sydney, Sue Knight of Sue Knight talks and books and Author of ‘NLP at Work’ and Harry Key of Key Impact both, UK and India, Tristan Soames from Ibiza and London of Be Do Have AnythingEleni Pallas of Leaders in Action in San Francisco, Sukhy Bains of Sukhy Bains Associates and Anand Rao Master NLP coach both in the UK, Peter Thompson in Sydney of Apt VenturesBen Harvey and the team at Authentic Education in Sydney. Richard Bandler in the US who is a founder of NLPConnirae Andreas in the US at NLP co and others I secretly watch and seek to emulate.

And to the most significant group of all, my family, whose support has been more than you might imagine.  To my dearest Dad, whose own life changes inspire me, our children: Jordan, Manja, Wendy, Dominique, Nikki and Marieke, whose amazing support and faith make such a difference, especially my most gorgeous daughter Taytje, who astounds and fills me with joy.  Mostly to my wonderful husband, Hans, who keeps the cogs of our lives well-oiled and functioning by running the house, being primary care giver, looking after the property, while being President of the ANZFHS and Member of International Committee for the Friesian Horse Society, holding down a full-time job, and still manages to have a home cooked Rendang curry simmering on the stove when I get home… a huge ‘thank you’ to you all.

Tamworth Coached to Higher Heights

After travelling the world to study with leaders in the field of coaching and training and being inspired by many successful people worldwide, I’ve come to understand that coaching in the local community is paramount and I have become passionate about making this professional service available and accessible here in Tamworth. So, having received Chamber of Commerce Quality Business Award for Excellence in Professional Services on Friday evening, I feel very honoured and humbled.

What is really impressive is the way successful professionals in the region have so quickly recognised the benefits of coaching. It demonstrates that Tamworth has forward thinking, reflecting the worldwide movement for ‘peak performance’ and ‘leadership’ coaching.

We coach our kids in sport, our Olympic athletes to achieve their goals, and now we have access to coaching for dealing with the challenges of modern life: constant high performance, while having a balanced life and quality relationships. My team and I are so pleased to serve our community in this way.
