We hired John Hale from Hale Consulting Group to assess our culture and help us modernise the way we operate as an organisation.

The result was fantastic. John delivered an action packed and magical day of team building and awareness raising games and exercises.

Morale is much higher and we are working much more cooperatively and effectively as a result.

Mark Pidcock - Principal, City Toyota Group

John Hale’s greatest strengths lie in his ability to think strategically and to guide others along that path.

John demonstrates very effective people management skills and can adapt his style to suit variable client groupings and scenarios.

John played a significant role in the development of this Council’s overarching 2020 Strategic Plan and this required intense workshop exercises with Councillors.

Soon after I invited John to assist with a radical restructuring of the organisation’s management team.

I found John’s input invaluable and importantly both of these key exercises have proven to be success stories for Lismore City Council.

Whether it is organising highly successful information technology forums for our members or performing focus group consultations for thirty small rural communities of less than 5000 people and then developing appropriate health care service models, John Hale’s breadth of experience and professional approach ensures I can be confident of a quality outcome every time.

Dr Sue Page - National President, Rural Doctors Association

The Board identified the need to bring new and current Board Members up to date with the responsibilities of being a Director.

The Board Governance Training Day John Hale from Hale Consulting Group facilitated for us was well received by new and experienced Directors alike.

His knowledge, professional experience, and entertaining style kept the Board engaged and made for a highly effective day.

Paul Welch - Company Secretary , NSW Sugar Milling Co-op

In my first 2 years working with John, I have grown Nickel Energy by over 150%.

John made sure I set goals that were right for me.

He helped me navigate the future at multiple levels, he delivered the skills and awareness my management team needed and found me the key senior management personnel I needed.

John has tremendous wisdom, expertise and skill and his level of integrity is second to none.

Nick Lake - Founder, Nickel Energy

We called on John Hale from Hale Consulting Group when our company was struggling with its direction.

John gave us a clear overview and proposition of options that was invaluable in leading us to make brave decisions and actions.

Five years later our Company is a leader in its field and has just won the NSW Telstra Business Award as best business in its category.

Will Evans - Founder, The Purist Company

Our Board was only happy to go ahead when John offered us his short pay option.

At the end of our initial strategy retreat with him, this gave us the freedom to pay any amount less than the agreed fee by simply writing down our ideas on where he fell down.

This didn’t happen, the process was thorough and the results were extremely valuable. 

We then kept drawing on John’s expertise in the areas of strategy development, securing a government grant and ongoing project management supervision, over the following five years.

John Hale cut quickly through to the core issues and then supported me in establishing simple yet valuable habits to manage my life more effectively, habits that I continue to use in my daily life years later.

John’s insight and skills provide solutions for personal as well as corporate growth. John operates at maximum integrity and comes highly recommended.

Christopher Dean - Founder, Thursday Plantation
The Chairman of our Board was very supportive of engaging John as a leadership mentor to extend me.

I believe that you never stop learning and John has challenged my boundaries and expanded my outlook at both a business and personal level.

His incredible understanding of organizations, people and human nature will change your life.

I am truly blessed to have him as a mentor and coach.

Glen Eagles - General Manager, Hurford Group

John created space for me to feel safe, adventurous and authentic.

I joined John’s men’s circle 6 years ago, having just graduated from an 18-year relationship.

I was an anxious and reluctant man, fearful of life and love.

With John’s business mentoring and life coaching programs, I have created a new life, full of love and integrity with business, physical, mental and spiritual growth.

Hugh McCaffery - Owner, Cleanskincare

I engaged John for 12 months as a mentor and counselor to assist me with staying whole, healthy and compassionate through the, at times, painful deterioration and eventual death of my father earlier this year.

John taught me how to relax and breathe from my center.

Under his guidance, I was able to release aspects of inter-generational trauma from my father’s heritage, personality and traits.

John helped me learn to let go of judgment and anger around my father so that the words “I love you” could finally be spoken, received and felt in Dad’s final weeks.

John helped me let go so that Dad could let go and go peacefully.

Julia - Special Counsel, Brisbane Law Firm
I called on John when I needed answers quickly. Although I had more than 25 years of experience of running successful businesses, leading my current startup venture had put me well beyond my comfort zone.

I needed some new skills and renewed confidence.

John was welcoming and friendly.

With his help, we assessed many areas of my business and personal life to help me grow.

John was very comfortable operating at a level beyond giving advice.

Through his openness and availability, I learned from and drew new value from my own experiences.

I have no hesitation recommending John and as always, I look forward to working with John again in the future.

Alan Richards - Founder, IntelliQuip
I am grateful to have worked with John Hale from Hale Consulting Group.

John conducted a careful examination of our business moving forward and provided sound and balanced advice for our next stage of growth.

I have no hesitation in recommending John as a highly knowledgable and empowering mentor for any growing business.

Charlotte Battle - Owner, Total Balance Health & Fitness

When I had the privilege to meet John Hale, four years before I became a client, I was deeply impressed by his healing generosity, amazing intuition and grounded tranquillity.

So when the ‘chips were down’ and the time came to prepare for and deliver on the most precious project of my life, my decision to call on John was automatic.

And I never regretted it.

I recommend John to anyone as a world-class therapist and mentor.

Our entire team and network thoroughly enjoyed John’s Keynote on “Creating a Strategic Mindset” at our recent National Conference. 

John connected extremely well with the audience and made the often-challenging topic of strategy easy to understand and apply, at both a business and personal level.

John’s level of care and professionalism in preparing for our event was also excellent.

John is a highly gifted technology presenter.

His many conference presentations to Australian Boards and Executives have resulted in multi-million dollars sales of Hewlett Packard Equipment.

Over the last three years he has helped us place HP Systems in to organisations like Coles Myer, Commonwealth Bank and NSW Land Titles Offices.

Steve Jackson - Sales Manager, Hewlett Packard
Working with John was an absolute pleasure.

He brought so much energy and professionalism as a speaker at our conference.

He walks in with a huge smile on his face and makes everything super easy for the organisers.

He works around everything that is happening and is adaptable and flexible. Nothing is too much trouble.

John was early, calm, prepared and delivered a really insightful session that not only had the entire room singing and laughing but also debating some serious ethical questions.

Is there anything he can’t do?

Wendy Smith - Conference Manager, Financial Planning Association of Australia

Customer service is important for our dealers, yet we wanted an extra customer service effort right through the buying process. 

John Hale led this change by crystallising the benefits of extra effort with great results. 

John has spoken at our national dealer conference three years running. 

It is rare to have a business advisor passionate about the issues and who balance changing attitudes with the discipline of personal action plans.

Bruce Loxton - Managing Director, Kimberley Group

John Hale delivered an entertaining, interactive and informative keynote presentation on “Doing Leadership Differently” at our annual IPA Victoria Congress.

The feedback from our members was overwhelmingly positive and John was mentioned a number of times in response to our survey asking members what they enjoyed most about the Congress. 

Sarah Cooke - Professional Development Executive, Institute of Public Accountants

We were delighted with John Hale’s keynote presentation “Growing Digital Wings” at our annual digital conference.

John’s presentation was so well received, that we scheduled it again on the second day of the conference, so even more people could learn from John.

Margaret Blade - CEO, Regional Development Australia

Our Expressway Network Forum was treated to an exceptional presentation by John Hale, on “The Power of Interpersonal Influence”.

This is the third time John has spoken in as many years and we never grow tired of his enlightening, and professionally delivered presentations.

John got the audience involved in a demonstration on how to increase the impact of what is said by building early audience rapport.

John’s relaxed style and concisely structured presentation delivered a message that the audience easily understood – great entertainment and really good takeaways.
