Written Testimonials

As a young professional navigating the world of owning and operating a business, I was hesitant to reach out and ask for help as it grew. Fortunately, a colleague introduced me to Jade, and a few sessions later, I felt at ease sharing my concerns and welcomed the support I knew I needed.

Jade’s approach to coaching has been fantastic and her teachings have now spanned across all aspects of business and professional life. I often find myself reassured knowing that I can reach out and ask those silly or hard hitting questions, with Jade delivering me the unpleasant but welcoming truth if need be.

It’s been great to see the change in thinking and perspective from my own personal development point of view, but also within my team as they have been able to utilise Jade’s teachings to better handle employee and customer interactions.

Our team very much look forward to continuing our journey with Jade and allowing us to grow and prosper in the complex world of business.

Jordan Jilg, Managing Director, Rummage Technical & Rummage Connect

My decision to bring Jade into my journey as a business coach was driven by my aspiration to enhance earnings through sales growth.  I recognized the need for a fresh perspective, especially in how I approached the numbers and my mindset.

Jade guided me to explore the key aspects of business growth in great depth, spanning topics such as business strategy, marketing, time management, sales techniques and goal setting.  She also helped with the delicate interplay between business objectives and personal values, to aid the fostering of a fulfilling and contented life.

My business’s sales have shown a remarkable 60% increase.  This is a dream come true, and I owe it to Jade’s expertise and guidance.  It’s not merely the numerical achievement but the quiet satisfaction it has brought into my life, creating harmony between my business aspirations and personal well-being.

Jade’s support has been a guiding light in my business journey, and I’m continuing to experience growth and success in my business, which is deeply satisfying.

Natalee Sands, Owner, Aesthetic Blinds & Design

Running a small business will always have ups and downs, and you will make good and bad decisions. One of the decisions I got right was getting started with Jade from Suited to Business.

After nearly 8 months working with Jade the business has been turned around. We have good healthy profits.

Not only have the figures improved, my clarity for my direction has also grown stronger. I now have a clear vision for the next 12 months and beyond.

I now have more tools, less stress and the confidence in myself to achieve all the goals set at the beginning of this coaching journey.

I can’t recommend Jade enough.

Reynaldo Carrasco, Owner, Tersus Facilities Services

Working with Jade has been both eye opening and inspiring. Having a personal advocate to talk straight, back your corner, and provide workable solutions is something everyone should try. I have enjoyed working with Jade and seeing tangible changes in my personal and professional life. I recommend Jade to anyone who is serious about investing in themselves and seeing a positive outcome.

Gerard Saunders, Director, Secretariat

I was at a point in my business where I was ready to grow and improve but I didn’t know how or where to start.

Jade has helped put LocknBolt on the path to incredible success, even throughout the global pandemic. Not only did Jade work with me as Managing Director, also my wife, Taylor.

As a 24-hour emergency mobile locksmith, the job can be mentally as well as physically draining. When I was pushing myself too hard, Jade would help bring my attention to that and remind me to slow down – the better we take of ourselves, the better we can take care of our business.

I would highly recommend Jade to any business, big or small, looking for assistance in growth, guidance in direction, and help in refocusing their goals and energy.

Without Jade, LocknBolt would be falling behind in the Brisbane locksmith race but we are as successful and profitable as ever with a happy Managing Director and smooth business operations.

Joshua Pretty, Managing Director, LockNBolt Locksmiths (Business now sold)

Jade is a world-class business coach! After every single session with Jade, I walk away with greater clarity of purpose, direction and a solid strategy. She brings her wealth of knowledge, wide range of experiences and emotional intelligence as a compassionate, intuitive business coach. Jade always knows to ask all the right questions, prompting me to broaden my perspectives and realise ‘what I don’t know I don’t know’. I highly recommend Suited to Business! You won’t be disappointed.

Krystal Kovacs, Director, Tutornova & the Editing Mouse

I had been struggling with my position as I had lost confidence in my ability to manage my team when I was introduced to Jade.  Under her guidance through the E-disc system she has opened my eyes to endless possibilities.
One on one leadership training with Jade has taught me not only to be a more productive and proactive manager, but inspired me to be better person – who now has her mojo back!!
Her passion, dedication and support at every twist and turn along the way gave me the enthusiasm and drive to rise to each and every challenge. If you have lost your direction at work or in life then Jade is the one person that can help you see your potential.

Justine Quinn, Team Leader, Austworld

I was at that point in my business where I was exhausted, working 60+ hours a week. I hadn’t had a holiday in 17 years. I was wondering if it was all worth it and I was searching for clarity for my direction.

The Suited to Business leadership program has evolved my leadership immensely. I’ve bought a new truck and taken on two new employees. My team is now at the stage where I can leave them and go on my first holiday in 17 years – to my dream destination Las Vegas. I have a more confidence in my own self-worth and ability to get things finished, I use the Nike saying all the time now JUST DO IT and things will happen.

Dean Lucas, Director, Lucas Transport

Jade’s support has been transformational for Pistol Creative. When we started working with her, we were looking to expand but didn’t know the best way to go about it. Jade showed us how. Her careful guidance and understanding of business processes have helped us believe in ourselves and what we can offer clients. As a result, our business has gone from strength to strength, and we are well positioned to take Pistol Creative to the next level. We would highly recommend Jade’s services.

Mark Cusack, Marketing Director and Owner & Gavin Roche, Creative Director, Pistol Creative

Jade is passionate about her clients and the outcome for their personal development. She always goes the extra mile to think about how she can support you and provide you with tools/knowledge/ideas that can enhance your current thinking and situation.  If you are looking for someone to help you find your direction and motivation Jade is definitely a person you should meet.

Sandra Karamitelios, Director, Recruitment Central

Jade worked one to one with my Agency Manager.  The outcomes were beyond expectations.  For the business a re-energised, refocused key person who has implemented some new tools into the business that have made a real difference.

For the staff member a new sense of purpose and drive, learning new things and developing the confidence and capacity to drive change.

Jane Toohey, Managing Director, Outsource to Us

I signed up for one of Jade’s one to one Leadership Mentoring Programs as I wanted to improve my communication skills at work.  Jade used a variety of tools including Extended DISC.  As a result of the mentoring my verbal and written communication skills have improved immensely. This has helped me to be much more efficient at work and also resulted in improved relationships with my team that I manage.  I highly recommend Jade’s services.

Flora Harding, Supporter Services Manager, Mater Foundation

Thank you Jade for equipping me with the tools to change my life!

During COVID, isolated working-from-home, I knew the only thing I could control was how I reacted, and that what I did next mattered.

Through the coaching we identified how I worked best, how to manage up more effectively and what it was that I needed in my next role to feel like a valued and productive team member, contributing to business outcomes.  Jade helped me to re-build my confidence and get back on track.

Jade continually checked in, reviewed my applications and debriefed my interviews.  I could not have come so far in such a short space of time without her.

I am happy to report I now have a new role in a large organisation that I wanted to work with, sharing my knowledge and confidently delivering business outcomes. I am back on track to smash my career goals, and I couldn’t have done it without Jade.

Abby Fields, Event Coordinator, RACQ

As a Veterinary Surgeon and young entrepreneur, I desired a more balanced life, and to achieve many life goals. Jade was recommended to me by a colleague, and through her program, I have experienced remarkably rapid and spectacular personal growth; much greater than I could’ve ever imagined!
These ground-breaking sessions with Jade have instilled a new confidence in my professional capabilities, helped me to develop and maintain an assertive and self-respecting demeanour, given me the essential tools for time management in a stressful fast-paced profession, and helped to steer me away from seemingly inevitable professional burn-out.
Jade went above and beyond her coaching role and expressed a genuine concern and interest in my life, contacting me many times between sessions to offer encouragement on stressful days, and to share helpful information or touching personal stories.
For all these reasons, I believe she has a natural capability as a Coach, a genuine communication style that had us both laughing through tough sessions, and an intuitive understanding of not just what her clients want, but what they truly need to succeed in all aspects of their life I highly recommend Jade for anyone who desires personal growth and/or life balance’

Jessica Pickett, Veterinary Surgeon

Thank you for making such a difference in my life. I was so glad I trusted my instincts and decided to use you. Your ability to guide me through to uncover a better understanding of myself has been life changing. Your approach was both professional and personable, making me feel better and better as we progressed. I love your passion about what you do, about how much you care. It was a truly positive experience and one that I feel will help me for years to come. I want to thank you for everything that you’ve done for me.
