  • The HR Experts International worked with us at a particularly challenging time as the business was undergoing transformation from a start-up operation into a fully-fledged market leading business. We sought out Vanessa as someone who could help coach our leadership team to rethink, fine-tune and grow from operational excellence into a high performance culture. Vanessa helped us strengthen our HR processes, assisted us in restructuring the sales and operational teams and provided the management team with leadership development coaching that helped us grow professionally in line with our own rapid businesses growth. Vanessa also facilitated a number of training programmes for the broader operation and can be credited with helping a number of our teams achieve their potential through team work programmes and building greater self-awareness. James Douglas, COO

Training

  • We engaged The HR Experts International to deliver our legal requirement training to the business (anti-discrimination and bullying and WHS).  What was provided were real life examples and I believe them to be actually workable within the business and will add value to our workplace. Vanessa’s facilitation and style of delivery, while at times appropriately very serious, was also intermixed with some humour, generated by both her and the group, which assisted in delivering very enjoyable sessions. I would be more than happy to recommend this training to business leaders, owners and managers as they will gain real benefit for their businesses. Col Alexander, CEO, CIC Pty Ltd
  • Almost immediately, my team and management noticed [the] step change in my energy levels / enthusiasm and this was acknowledged through peer, 360 and quarterly performance reviews. In addition within six months I was offered a promotion to the leadership team and achieved an outstanding for the full financial year performance bonus. Peter Vincent, Spark NZ, Telecom NZ
  • I really enjoyed the course "Power of Influencing" workshop. I am about to start a new role with a new company and feel that the course has provided me with some key tools to help me approach my position with a new understanding of the dynamic relationships between different personalities in the workplace. I feel that I have a clearer picture of the best ways to encourage and work with different team members and I am looking forward to putting what I have learnt into to action. Stephanie Norris
  • We engaged The HR Experts International to design and deliver sales transformation programs for our contact centre staff at Gizmo.  The objective was to take service orientated call centre staff and create strong sales & service engaged staff.  Most of our staff were fabulous at service, but struggled to meet their daily sales target of $500.  The workshops had an almost immediate positive impact improving our contact centre team’s morale, productivity and revenue. Our sales grew within the first few days post training, and just kept growing!  The vast majority of employees were achieving the higher target within two months (from $500 to $2,500 per day). We achieved an overall uplift of over 500% across the contact centre team within 3 months of the workshops.  We couldn’t be more delighted! Highly recommended. Tania Mathams, Head of HR, Gizmo Corporation
  • We wanted our sales training workshops designed specifically for our products, customers, culture and value proposition.  The facilitator incorporated and used real life examples from our contact centre and pragmatic and useful tools to help the team gain clarity and perspective of our sales philosophy. For me, one of the most important benefits of this workshop was the sustained learning and development gained by the training. Months after the workshop our team members not only remembered the tools they had learned but continued to build on these for their personal and professional growth. And from an employee engagement perspective our employees remained as highly committed in the new model. COO Contact Centre
  • The HR Experts International supported Adstream through an important re-structure and did so with great expertise. Vanessa in particular added strategic value to the HR function and operates with deep accountability. Peter Miller, MD Adstream
  • Learning with The HR Experts International is different! The management and leadership development programs are delivered within a safe environment. You gain great pragmatic tools, access to a highly experienced facilitator and genuinely get to practice and review your skills and receive honest feedback and as a consequence, walk away equipped to be a better manager and to deal with day to day staff issues with confidence and honesty. It is a life changing experience - not only is it - informed, energetic, straight up, great fun, practical and all that with real life, as opposed to contrived situations, working with Vanessa will never make you fear role play again! Anna Ross-Adjie, HR Manager, Peet Pty Ltd
  • I highly recommend The HR Experts International. Training, for any organisation is an investment, this was one of the best investments I made as it continued to enrich our business long after. Amazing results, highly recommended.  Tania Mathams, Client Solutions Director, Korn Ferry

Coaching

  • I had Executive coaching program with HREI. My coach’s approach was great - I felt at ease with her from the outset. We discussed my expectations and she quickly demonstrated to me in insightful practical terms an understanding of what was required and what she believed we needed to do to achieve my goals in a pragmatic and structured way. Peter Vincent, Spark NZ, Telecom NZ
  • The Coaching program sessions which I would describe as respectfully challenging, I was encouraged to share in an open trusting way. This was quickly translated into a plan where I was able to clearly understand what I needed to do and when. Throughout this high energy process, I quickly discovered what I was ultimately looking for to fulfil my professional aspirations. Senior Manager, Bank
  • I learnt so much from my coaching and development with The HR Experts International. There is rarely a week that goes by that I do not reflect on the learning I gained from being coached and I continually pass on my learnings to others. Highly recommended! Anna Ross-Adjie, HR Manager, Peet Pty Ltd
  • My Executive coach, Vanessa, is a highly accomplished executive coach whom I'd recommend highly. I'm happy to be contacted directly at any time if required. James Douglas, International Business Development Strategist
  • My coach, coached me through some very difficult situations, helping me with conflict management, my leadership style and change management. My coach taught me a lot and she is a fantastically engaging speaker with great activities that really drive home the points she was making. She was incredibly supportive and I really valued her feedback both the good and the bad! Vanessa was a massive support, for which I always be very grateful!  Emma Taylor, Business Owner
  • My coach has had such an incredible impact on my life with her coaching skills, it was hard to know where to start. Most people seek out a coach to help them achieve their goals. A good coach will help you achieve these, a great coach, like Vanessa, will equip you with skills and knowledge that will stay with you for life.  Vanessa has coached me both professionally and personally. She has helped me achieve many of what I first thought were unattainable goals. I believe what sets Vanessa apart from other coaches is that she genuinely cared about me and the goals I was trying to achieve. Vanessa is supportive and encouraging and helped me gain valuable insight into ‘what was really going on’ for me. She helped me identify core barriers to my success and provided me with the tools and techniques to help me better identify and understand my behaviours. I think this has had the greatest impact on me as  Vanessa coaches you to be able to sustain change and I continue to use the techniques she taught me daily. Tania Mathams, Client Solutions Director, Korn Ferry
  • My coach is one of the most dedicated, empathetic and credible coaches I have ever had the privilege to work with. She not only brings with her a wealth of knowledge and skills (she constantly keeps her skills up to date through research), but she does all of this with humour and humility. I have recommended her to numerous friends and business colleagues who have all had the same experience with her. In the myriad of executive coaches that have surfaced over recent years Vanessa shines brightly, she is the real deal! Tania Mathams, Client Solutions Director, Korn Ferry
