Turning Point Consulting Commences
Seeing these challenges I established Turning Point Consulting at the start of 2012 to provide the chance for individuals throughout all stages of life to see opportunities in their lives and career paths through programs that improved self-awareness, emotional intelligence, reflection and personal growth. In building the business I have been able to utilise vast networks to enrich staff and student’s lives through practical and individual coaching and application. Our educational programs have been carefully crafted to mirror and yet extend in-school and professional programs with comprehensive educator and networking and student forums founded in strengths-based methodology. Our work was consolidated in 2014 when we became recognised as an accredited provider of professional development by BOSTES, in 2016 when we were recognised as a Centre of Excellence in Leadership, Change and Wellbeing Service and when I was awarded an Honorary Fellowship for our work in education by The Teachers Guild of NSW.
