What clients say

The coaching sessions have given our entire team the practical tools to improve the clarity and impact of our written communication. The tips and examples used really resonated with our groups of consulting professionals.
Writing coaching with Narelle was fantastic. I got so much out of it! Narelle is an excellent communicator. The tips she shared during the coaching period have had a valuable impact on my writing. I am more aware of the reader and of writing with intent.
Samantha Watson, Operations Manager, Women's Legal Service Victoria (Legal)
I strongly believe that this coaching should be part of every organisation’s training, especially for middle and senior management teams.
Romi Tariq, Area Manager-South, Able Australia (Disability services)
Well worthwhile; very good ideas coming from sessions which are being translated into our organisation.
I was lucky enough to have Narelle as a coach for my business writing skills. Her coaching program is modern and dynamic, which suited me perfectly. I particularly enjoyed the way she teaches principles and the psychological reasons that support the principles. This really captured my interest.
Anh Tuan Ngo, Performance Analyst, Financial Ombudsman Service (Regulatory services)
Narelle was great to work with, very efficient and prompt with working to deadlines. She really helped me communicate my thoughts and ideas clearly and effectively. It was a pleasure working with Narelle and if you need any help with effective written communication I would highly recommend Narelle’s work.
