Jean-Marc is so much more than a business coach! As I write this recommendation it is hard to find the appropriate words to express how much Jean-Marc has positively impacted my businesses, my personal and professional development and indeed my life.
As the owner of 3 businesses with sales and distribution in over 20 countries, I can honestly say none of it would have happened without Jean-Marc’s expert guidance, coaching, mentoring and friendship.
If you are a business owner wanting to improve your business or indeed any significant area of your life then you should get in touch with JM to see if you qualify to work with him. He is phenomenal at what he does.
I have known Jean-Marc for over 5 years now and I have used him for strategy planning for a number of my business ventures as a sounding board and also for strategic input. JM has been instrumental in many of the paths we have taken and has been an exceptionally valuable asset to our strategy and business choices.
Having the ability to take a high level view of our business and getting us to re-organise our priorities has been a major benefit to our success. This has resulted in better decision making and less time pressure from an operational point of view. I would highly recommend JM to any business that needs to make sure they are focussing on the value adding areas in their business and also any business owner who needs to realise the importance of personal and family time away from their business.
JM brings expertise in all facets of the business from strategy, operational, marketing and finance that any business owner regardless of experience can benefit. A big thanks for all your help to date JM and looking forward to our next catch up.

Working with Jean Marc has assisted me to understand and grow in business. He is approachable and has added significant value. His advice around tough decisions that need to be made has been on point every time. He remains committed and invested in the growth of my business and focuses on supporting the business to support the well being of myself as a director.
Jean Marc has understood the challenges faced in business and has worked with me to keep positive traction and from getting stuck.
Since working with Jean Marc my accountant has given strong positive feedback as to the significant financial growth of my business without any increase in expenses.
I would recommend any business owner who is serious about growing and developing their business to talk with Jean Marc about how he can assist. He has been an important and pivotal part of ours!

Jean-Marc has been our business coach for over 7 years and right now, our business is in a position, I never would have dreamed it would be in. We would not have been able to get here without his assistance. It has been a tough hard slog at times but Jean-Marc is always there to listen, guide and keep us focused on what matters. He is a valuable part of our team and the best investment we make each year!!
The Financial Bloke & Managing Director, Exceed Financial
I am writing you to express my gratitude for your coaching and leadership.
Throughout the 2 years of being under your coaching guidance I gained so much in a short period of time
You always provided feedback at the right time coupled with the right dose of praise when things were being implemented – and they were because of your great principles you taught me: Chunking my time and provoking the need for creating efficient systems.
If it was not for your coaching, I feel I would not be where I am today in my business
And it is because of your skillful coaching that today I am prospering and using these very principles to inspire others to achieve their best.

We were fortunate to cross paths with Jean-Marc a little over 2 years ago.
At the time, we seemed to be constantly under the pump, working long hours and weekends but without adequate reward for that effort.
Jean-Marc brought fresh eyes to the business, made a few tweaks here and there, and has helped steer us in the right direction.
Director, CLO Lawyers
Jean-Marc coached my business partner and myself for a period of two years. The business coaching provided us with the finer touches to achieve our business goals and progress our firm to the next level of growth.
I would recommend Jean Marc to any small business owner who wants that extra push to achieve their long term business goals.
Senior Consultant, Agilis Accountants & Advisors
Jean-Marc was my law firm’s Business Developer and Adviser for over 3 years. Susan Moriarty & Associates specialises in human rights and employment law. We predominantly represent employees.
I never lacked the passion for assisting clients but I had a much more challenging time understanding and respecting the need to focus on profitability and cash flow. Jean Marc was the perfect advisor for me : never judgemental, endlessly patient as I fought his attempts to interest me in the bottom line and fully engaged when I needed urgent assistance with unexpected administrative mishaps. He settled recruitment advertisements for me whenever I asked and convinced me to see the unrealised potential of the firm.
I worked with him on a client file where he took on the key negotiator role in a commercial dispute. He was calm, focussed and saw the negotiations through to a very successful conclusion. I could not recommend Jean-Marc more highly. If you have a start-up in mind, get Jean-Marc on board now! If you’ve plateaued in your business, call him and talk with him. He has deep experience in how to take your business to that next level. Do it now. You will not regret the encounter.
Principal, Susan Moriarty & Associates
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Jean-Marc a few years back in my mortgage broking business. Accountability was what I was looking for in a coach and Jean-Marc’s weekly phone calls (on the plan I was on with him at the time) was absolutely what I needed to stay on track.
I’ve since sold that business and have taken some time off but i wouldn’t hesitate to seek Jean-Marc’s wise counsel in future ventures I’m considering when a courteous kick in the pants to move my business to the next level is required.
You’ll find Jean-Marc, approachable, courteous, wise beyond his years, firm but fair and sporting a terrific sense of humour.
Jean-Marc was my business coach for a period of about 2 years when my businesses were going through transformational periods. If you are in business and don’t have a coach – then I would in the first instance recommend that you you open yourself up to the possibility of looking to take one on. You are smart – but you don’t know everything. Once you open you yourself to that concept – then talk to JM and discover what the possibilities lie ahead for you and your business.
Having JM on your side is like having a guy you always wanted on your team whispering in your ear when you need it most. But be warned. Accountability to action the ideas and strategies is key to your success and JM will keep you accountable to all of them. If you are not up for that then JM is not your guy, and perhaps no one is.
I may not have realized it back then, but today as I continue to implement the principles and practices I learned through yourself and Better Business Freedom I am thankful for gaining my life back whilst still chasing and attaining my career and business goals
Last week we hired a new employee for the new business Whole Nutrition. Our first retreat is sold out.
I have cultivated a small list of A list clients for Install Express. This business is now so simple and streamlined it nearly runs itself.
On a personal level today is a good day. Tonight we take the stage with the internationally renowned Billy Talent at Brisbane’s premier venue The HiFi.
Jean-Marc is a master of his craft. He has a knack for getting directly to the heart of the matter and helping you develop and implement the solution.
He has helped me shift myself and my business to the next level and I cannot recommend him highly enough. His coaching and support have been invaluable. Talk to him ASAP!
Business Coach, Strategist & Advisor
Jean-Marc is like no one else I have ever met in life. Not only did he support, challenge & help me grow my business using strategies within personal coaching & mentoring groups, he also has an innate knowledge about life & could talk through all aspects of health and well being knowing that it impacted my business.
I continue to use strategies learned from JM day to day.
Milk & Meat Pty Ltd
I would highly recommend Jean-Marc to business owners looking for support and guidance from an expert outside perspective.
Jean-Marc was calm, thoughtful and professional during our sessions; helping me step out of myself and analyse where I had been going wrong. He made me look objectively at my hurdles which allowed me to really step outside of the ‘business owner box’ that I was stuck in and have a totally fresh pair of eyes on where I had been struggling.
I would not hesitate to recommend his services and would like to publicly thank him for his support through the growth of my business.
