We support your business in developing the culture, capability and character to drive success. 

We will help you empower your people to drive the strategic outcomes that create value in your business.

Continuous Growth


 The first step is to specify the strategic and tactical outcomes you are seeking.  I will help you to diagnose where the problems lie and the learning outcomes that will provide best ROI.  Clear problem definition will always result in more powerful solutions.


Your needs are unique and so your development program should be as well.  I will work with you to design a targeted development plan that works for you goals, time commitment and budget.


Program delivery needs to be impactful relevant and memorable..  Practical application drives behaviour change. . I will also work with you to lay out an embedding plan to drive ongoing behaviour change beyond the training or conference.

At your service

Michael Fooks


I have spent over 10 years following my passion to support my clients in driving greater success with less effort.  I have worked with organisations of all sizes, from small family owned businesses through to New Zealand’s largest banks, telcos and government agencies. I engage with organsiations at both the senior executive and execution levels, designing and delivering bespoke training and coaching projects.

I am certified in a range of learning tools, and I focus on blending theory with practical application in an environment that is challenging, fun and results focused.

As a trainer myself I am in envy of his skills. He not only commands attention he can hold attention and you know that people are not only learning but will retain the knowledge, He challenges people, he encourages people and it's plainly obvious he loves his work.
