What our clients say
“Today’s session met the success criteria. Many opportunities to discuss our own setting in light of leadership styles and growth mindset. We have plenty to discuss back at school with the leadership team. Adrian was easy to listen to and provided plenty of opportunities to reflect with our colleagues.”

“Thank you for working & coaching with the team this year. They have learnt so much & have taken so much away from the sessions in which they can use at their new schools. It’s also been valuable for you to work with them at a difficult time for them & the school. Also, thanks for providing me the notes so that I can get a greater understanding of their values & beliefs. The feedback that I have received has always been positive so congrats on a job well done.”
Jim Ringin,Assistant Principal, Preston Girls Secondary College
“I found your presentation and the style of “Learning Partnerships” really fits my style of working with people. What you shared was relevant, to the point, practical, useful and rememorable (a new word perhaps). I have already shared with both the Head of Junior College and head of Teaching and Learning…they are keen for me to get going”Learning Partnerships”
