Coaching and consulting is an art and skill, not everyone has the skills to be able help their client’s to learn and grow. Choosing a Coach, Mentor or Consultant can be risky business. Ensure you choose one who has a proven track record, understands the distinct difference between all 3 and one who aligns to your core values.

Paula is a Master at finding the gold within us, that sometimes we cannot see ourselves. She helps you to uncover the blind spots in your business and to draft powerful commercial, but authentic messages. In her last Exceptional Business Master Mind, she managed to creatively re-brand several businesses and we all got to see the immediate commercial results. Personally, I found the clarity, support and synergy within the group and the private coaching in between sessions invaluable. The Exceptional Business programme inspired me to expand and move forward into what’s possible. I highly recommend it.

What I loved about working with Paula was Paula’s ability to draw on her extensive business experience to deliver a very practical and easy to understand program. The content of the group sessions was at a level that resonated and connected with each of the participants, regardless of what stage of development their business was at. At the same time, everyone had access to 1:1 coaching sessions that delved down into the detail of their business. There were many ‘aha’ moments for all of us and lots of fun along the way. I would highly recommend the program to anyone who is starting, growing or reinventing a business. The venue was excellent..relaxing, welcoming and away from the hustle and bustle of the city…thank you for opening up your home
Testra Business Woman of the Year and CEO
I thoroughly enjoyed my personal journey over the 3 months. I felt that getting to know and hear everyone else’s story, thoughts and their current personal and business position certainly assisted me in further understanding my own. Paula has a great balance between facilitator and showing a caring persona whilst effectively delivering the content over the 3 months. I think whether you’re a newer business, established and small, medium or large you can definitely take a lot away from this inspiring business forum.
Managing Director – REMAX and Begin Property Developments
Before working with Paula I was feeling disheartened and confused. I’d been working really hard to gain clarity on my message and packaging it into a commercially attractive product, but nothing felt like the right fit. Paula noticed I was floundering and contacted me with some great advice that made me feel like she understood me and where I wanted to go with my brand. The first meeting I had with Paula I left feeling confident, inspired and finally had clarity on my message, and how to take it to the market with a clear plan forward.

I’ve absolutely loved working with Paula in her Mastermind group. Paula’s entrepreneurial experience combined with her creative and well researched ideas really help you to take your practice to the next level
Since working with Paula my business reached its tipping point and took an unexpected direction. I feel like I’m in completely in the right space now and SO excited for the future of my business. It’s potential is unlimited. Thank you, Paula
Kate Bird – Colour Me Kate
I began this journey with a little skepticism, reservation and curiosity. I wanted to know how I might benefit but didn’t know what that would look like. I can honestly say I have walked away from the experience with a clear mind on how to grow and improve my business while creating new friendships along the way.
Director Buurman Finance
The first time that I spoke with Paula Smith I knew I had found the right person to help me develop and launch my personal brand and speaking business. Whilst her knowledge on the subject is outstanding, it was her ability to use that knowledge to provide me with strategic advice as well as insights on every aspect of personal brand building that truly stood out. Combined with her sense of humour, honest approach and passion for her clients Paula is the perfect choice for someone looking for help with building and launching their brand and their business.

The Law of Winning
Before I started working with Paula I knew I wanted to make a slight change in direction, but wasn’t sure how to do it, or where to start, and made no real moves to do anything. Working with Paula has created these waves of direction and action. I am now moving on a clear path and making changes. Paula is also commercially savvy and able to hone in on the critical components of my message. You become incredibly precise in what and how you need to let the market know about you – almost is just not good enough! She has made an enormous difference. I have taken these giant strides and surprised myself. (It may have something to do with Paula’s whip!). And, although I am still a business fledgling, I know that based on my current results continuing to work with Paula will give me the edge, the confidence and the quintessential assurance that will allow me to create the business of my dreams. Paula, you rock, and your own and passion and drive makes it an absolute pleasure to be working with you. Thank you so very much.
(MBA, Director Leadership Keys)
I would like to say A huge “Thank You” to you for coaching me in my public speaking skills. I would sincerely recommend you to anyone who would like to polish up their skills in speaking. I was really struggling with my speaking skills but since attending your workshop and then being privately coached by you I have gained the skills and confidence to speak out and share my message. I was recently asked to present on the big stage in the Gold Coast. The applause was amazing, I even impressed a well- known speaker. He applauded and called me pocket dynamite. I was over the moon. The credit is due to you Paula. Thank you so much.

As a coach myself I know how important it is to work with the right person and to ensure that person not only has incredible knowledge but can get the best out of you! Working with Paula has been a fantastic experience. She knows when to push me, how to hold me accountable and her extensive knowledge, gathered from many, many years leading successful businesses in a diverse range of industries is invaluable. I am more focused, breaking through new levels in my business all the time and excited about the future in a new and motivating way.

Working with Paula has been invaluable. The most valuable topics for me personally were; Speaking about my business in front of an audience. (I pitched and won a Churchill Fellowship), publishing, positioning and now I have a consultant mindset, a new business focus, a Churchill Fellowship grant (in Paris meeting with global experts as we speak-never would imagined that) and I am now finally working towards my dreams.

Paula created a cohesive and supportive group throughout the whole programme.

This opportunity has enabled me to develop a clearer message for my business and to refine all of our offerings. The best parts were the collaborative environment, a safe place to share ideas and concepts and Paula’s external perspective on the view of my business.

I signed up for the Master Mind group as I thought I knew what I wanted, I just needed a nudge to keep on track. It ended up being so much more.
