Convince me it works


We’re going to leave it to those who’ve completed the program.

“I absolutely believe the course changes people’s lives. I feel with my relationships with people at work have, I’m now more accepting of other people. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist and the program has made me realise that is not reasonable hold everybody to the same standards.”
Tony Horton, Senior Unix Administrator


“The Expertship program really switched on a light for me. It made me realise that there is so much more to being a technology person than the technology.” 
Kellie Wills, Communications Engineer

“I found the course enabled me to develop a way of thinking that made for a more collaborative environment. It helped me refine my skills to become more of a trusted advisor, which is exactly the direction both I and the legal team need to move in. It has helped me to be an advocate for change and negotiate ways to achieve that change. The experience was overwhelmingly positive.” 
Lydia Juric, Legal Counsel


“I really wish I had done this course earlier in my career. In retrospect a lot of it seems like common sense, but common sense isn’t very common. It’s difficult to explain how innovative it is and how different the approach is.”
Gabriel Andres, Learning & Development Manager

“The course has done a lot for my confidence, in a big way. It’s about having enough business knowledge to be able to challenge the business.”
Sweta Talkar, SAP Design Authority


“Before I did the Expertship program I honestly thought there was something wrong with me. The program helped me realise that I am far from being alone. There was nothing wrong with me at all, I had just not learnt the right skills.”
Richard Silberman, Insurance Broker

“So often in my career I have felt that the other person just didn’t understand what I was saying, while at the same time I had a sneaking suspicion that I didn’t understand them. The program really changed that.”
Dave Brown, Program Director, Software Development


“The best thing about the program, which directly affected the way I work, was the section on stakeholder management. It was of immediate practical benefit to me.”
Nir Cohen, IT project Manager, Finance

“Would I recommend this type of development – absolutely. I think for me it has been the one training that has resonated with me the most right throughout my career. It’s not only be an eye opener but a great motivator both professionally and personally.

I think a lot of successful companies have very skilled technical experts and this is just the next level of training and development. I think it can definitely add value, and we’ve certainly seen that value added in the company I work for.”
Business Analyst, Financial Services


 “I was highly sceptical early on. But the most valuable part was the self-awareness journey. There were many things I thought I was doing well and didn’t believe I needed to improve upon, but have now improved immensely.”

Software Development Engineer, Melbourne

 “I got the most value from the material which covered getting better insights into people. The program made me think twice about judging others. Learning to step back from a situation and consider colleagues drivers, allows me to be (appropriately) less personally invested, and has reduced my frustration.”
Finance Business Partner, Sydney


“I couldn’t believe they had nominated me for this program. But I’m glad they did. The material where we discussed influencing techniques has been game changing for me. I was shocked that rational persuasion caused the most resistance. It was always how I tried to convince people, and always frustrated me when people didn’t “get it”. “
Deputy Legal Counsel, Asia Pacific

 “I said no the first time but decided to attend after reviews from colleagues. Prior to Mastering Expertship my business conversations with stakeholders were not always assertive. Now most are assertive. I can manage aggressive staff and direct conversations back to the value proposition which diffuses conflict and alleviates frustrations.”
Project Manager, Singapore


“I had given up expecting a change in attitudes towards our expert team. Now I proactively have changed mindsets and behaviours, and have more influence and respect as a consequence.”

“I went out to address my concerns with key stakeholders and have never looked back. It’s a win-win situation when I can demonstrate value at the beginning of the process.”


“I was stuck. I felt I had developed by capability as far as I could. But Mastering Expertship helped me see avenues for personal and professional growth, and for the first time in years I’ve committed to a meaningful development plan, and have executed it..”


“I liked the role plays best – what a great tool to challenge and immerse yourself in the learning.”

“I valued the comments in the 360 survey. I found them more objective.”

“The insight it gave me. I learned some interesting things from my co-workers. But also in answering it myself, I found it to be very comprehensive.”

“Given I work on multiple projects, I found my results varied depending on which project the stakeholder was involved in. They made the comments section highly valuable as this provided more meaning to the results.”

“The comments were very useful, the variety of categories give great scope to identify growth areas.”


“The most valuable for me was that there were some aspects in the 360 evaluation that I hadn’t been evaluated on before.”


“ This tool was much more comprehensive than ones I had used in the past. The feedback has helped me to focus on those areas that I need to improve in.”

“Unlike any other course I’ve ever done, I felt it equipped me with the tools I needed to work more effectively and to advance my career.”
