Business coach – Mosman Chamber of Commerce

Aussie Flipside

I help high-achieving professionals and business owners achieve entrepreneurial success.

The complexities and strategies of stepping up the corporate ladder or scaling up a business can be daunting and through my unique approach to coaching and consulting, I help high-achieving individuals and companies realise their aspirations through personal and business success.

Over the past 25 years, I’ve had the pleasure to work with some of the most interesting, intelligent, and high achieving professionals and business owners across multiple industries and countries…

And I’m regularly engaged to help Entrepreneurs discover how to build, grow, and scale their own profitable Professional Services businesses. In fact, I’ve used this same approach in my own business and with my clients to help them build and grow their own successful careers and profitable services businesses.

No one client is the same, so my coaching and consulting services are all tailored to fit you.

Now, I’m blessed as I get to help my clients not only visualise their futures, but I help them to reverse engineer the pathway to achieve it, step by step to entrepreneurial success.

And I absolutely love it!!!

“After many years of leadership tools and models, I thoroughly enjoyed the PCM model, but I have to say the real insights came from our session together. You explained simply and concisely how the model worked and, even more importantly, how it played out for my leadership. Thank you, Ilona.”
