"I have had the privilege to know Sandy for over 30 years both on a professional and personal basis. As a player Sandy provided valuable support to me and I have seen firsthand how he has afforded wonderful assistance to others. 

When I moved into coaching I did not hesitate to reconnect with Sandy, inviting him to join me in developing ideal team cultures with Sri Lanka and WA. 

One of the huge benefits Sandy brings to his practice is his diverse experience from elite sports and this, with a calm manner and understanding nature, brings powerful support to any team"

Tom Moody, Head Coach

"I was impressed to see how quickly Barb was able to get a 35-strong group of executive high-potentials (who had never met each other before) constructively working in teams to problem-solve an interactive game at the start of our program. Having applied principles taught up front, in such an interactive manner, by such an engaging and knowledgeable professional set the tone for learning and interaction for the rest of the program. It dismantled the participants’ social reservations about group learning very quickly and set up our program coaching delivery on a positive foundation."

"I have known Sandy through sport for 8 years and in that time, the Perth Wildcats have won 5 championships. Everyone plays a role in winning a championship and Sandy’s ability to help us achieve peak performance as individuals or collectively as a team meant he went above and beyond in playing his role. Forever grateful for his knowledge and appreciative of the help he has given me."

Damian Martin, Captain Perth Wildcats

"Sandy is an integral part of my coaching team and I trust him implicitly.  He invests emotionally in our clients and really cares that they are happy off and on the course; he communicates clearly with our coaching team; his easy approachable nature means he is able to work with all personality types; and very importantly to me, he is honest.  I highly recommend Sandy."

Ritchie Smith, Australian PGA Coach of the Year 2014, 2019

Strategic Planning

We have completed strategic planning processes for the Road Safety Commission of WA, the ChemCentre, the UWA Faculty of Medicine, the Centre for Transforming Maintenance through Data Science & C-Wise.

"Barb worked with our Centre to help us in shaping our strategic direction and ensuring that we enacted behaviours that would lead to success. In preparation, Barb used a disciplined positivist approach to interview Centre contributors which informed the strategic discussion hosted among our primary stakeholders. Barb’s skilful facilitation and engagement clarified the connection between our short term actions and the achievement of our long term objectives, and resulted in enhanced energy and motivation toward Centre activities."

Aloke Phatak, Associate Director, Centre for Transforming Maintenance through Data Science

"Sandy works with clients to truly understand not just what they want, but what they need to improve their performance or continue to excel. Sandy’s positive psychology approach – which encourages individuals and organisations to understand and work from their strengths – is an effective and refreshing means to achieve desired outcomes, whether targeting personal performance or used in the development of a business’s strategic plans. Sandy’s world-class experience and research, coupled with his engaging communication style and willingness to respectfully challenge behaviours and attitudes mean he is an excellent executive coach and organisational consultant."
