Your company has flourished. Now, how do you keep that going?

Women led venture coaching is for medium sized businesses led by women. The rise of businesses founded by women over the past decade has been significant, with two-thirds of new businesses being owned by women. In 2019, Australia emerged in the top 10 global markets to be a woman entrepreneur.

It takes courage, grit and an unwavering sense of self and commercial savvy to succeed in this market. In the life-cycle of business, coaching can support navigation through the evolution that  founders/owners need to make to realise opportunities and overcome challenges. Fabian Dattner, as founder and CEO of both Dattner Group and Homeward Bound, has walked many miles in these shoes with her teams and lends her patronage to this coaching offering.

  • Hodi Beauliv, Executive Manager Business Development, Sunraysia Community Health Services

    Through monthly one-on-one coaching sessions coach Michelle Crouch helped me develop a plan to embed what I learned from the Compass leadership course into my day to day actions. She helped me add even more tools to my leadership toolbox, further building my emotional intelligence and resilience to consistently operate from a constructive leadership perspective. She was always there to support me, asking the right questions whenever I faced a challenge. Michelle made it possible for me to successfully transition to an executive level role. Thank you, Michelle!

  • Helena Hurley, CEO – Good Return

    Compass has given me a renewed sense of energy and hope. It has provided me with invaluable insights as well as a number of tools to apply in my professional and personal life. It has helped me set sail into the future with greater purpose.

  • Brigid O’Sullivan, Mgr Communications – Western Water

    "The program has been transformational, grounded in theory, and facilitated with empathy and power. Each graduate will remain with me on my leadership development journey, as will the diagnostics and insight."

Amanda Ratnam – Clayton Utz

    "The Compass program was inspiring and life-changing for me. I learnt, but, most of all, experienced. Becoming more self-aware has already led to better outcomes for those I work with, deal with and for me, most of all. I cannot express how thankful I am for the opportunity to be a part of it."
