Here’s what Pauline Bright’s clients say: 

Ellen Smith – Bayshore Naturopathics

My name is Ellen from Bayshore Naturopathics.

People close to me have commented on how much I have grown, both in business and personally since I have been working with Pauline Bright as my business coach – and it started in month one.

We’ve worked together over the last couple of years in many areas of my business; from effective marketing, to organizing myself, my time and my staff, she has helped me with my self-belief and self-confidence. Numbers no longer phase me, I can look at my profit and loss statements to better understand what’s going on in my business and make decisions based on real data. We’ve also introduced new exciting programs that will take my business to a new level and give me more time to do the work I love.

Pauline has the ability to become a part of your business – to get inside it and see what’s possible, and to help you make positive changes. I’d highly recommend her.”

Kate Barnes

I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with Pauline recently, who provided business coaching/strategy advice.

Pauline has the fabulous ability to quickly understand the essence of what a business and the owner/founder is all about, and importantly keeping them true to each other. Pauline gives simple and practical ideas and advice that instantly get to the heart of the matter or issue.

Her practical advice makes sense, gives clarity and clear steps on how to move forward, while demonstrating grace, deep insight, wisdom and impeccable professionalism. She is filled with passion and empathy, while offering sound business recommendations. In my experience, a unique combination.

I highly recommend Pauline to anyone wanting to move their business to the next level and build a strong foundation for success at the same time. Thanks very much Pauline, your work is invaluable.

Nick Hoare

Before we started coaching with Pauline our business was moving along without focused direction or vision, we had a wish rather than a plan and decisions were made without due diligence.

Our business is much more focused now, planning is taking place and target setting is planned every 3 months. After coaching with Pauline we now have a much stronger grasp on my figures, testing and measuring systems. I can now take a step back and look at the business with more clarity.

Since our coaching began we have increased our turnover by 27% two years in a row and built our team of contractors from 4 to 16.

When I first started coaching I found it challenging but quickly realized that after our meetings I came away full of ideas and strategies that would move our business in the direction we wanted. Having the ability to phone or email Pauline is a great asset in itself.

Our investment in coaching has had a great return from a business and personal point of view and has helped greatly to balance my life between work and family life.

“I have attached my figures to date… it is clear to see that both Vanessa and I are doing a great job. Of course I would say that about myself!!!!!”

Heather Moseley – Shoreline Marine Fabrication

We are all starting to say…What would Pauline say?  We’re really
loving working with you.  You bring order to our thinking, take away the stress and replace it with a renewed excitement and vision forward.”

We’ve learned how to employ the right team. We have 2 new team members and more vans on the road. We are enjoying the business more – and it’s not all about the money!

Business Coaching is a very exciting and rewarding experience. It has been beyond our expectations.”

Terri Billington

I would highly recommend Pauline to anyone who would love massive shifts in their business and personal lives.”

Jen Pryor – Pryority Office Management Services

“Thank you Pauline for a lovely morning. It was very informative and, myself being a bookkeeper coming from a bookkeeping background, even I’ve taken away some information that’s relevant to not only bookkeeping but that I can also use in my own business. So thank you again, it was excellent!”

Kate Bird – Colour Me Kate

“I’ve just attended Pauline’s Women in Business Master Class. It was mind-blowing! It was one of the best 3-hour sessions that I have spent in a long time. Pauline is so knowledgeable about her stuff and I didn’t know what I didn’t know! Now I’m going to go home and try to put it into practice and watch my business fly. Thank you so much Pauline and I really enjoyed it!”

We now have a business which can, and does, run profitably and successfully, without us. This has been brought about by our change in mindset, application of systems & procedures, and with having a team now that really do walk through the door in the morning with enthusiasm and ownership.

“We had a major change in mindset from hating the business to loving it and committed to do whatever it takes.”

“Changing our mindset around team has ultimately produced the greatest benefit to our business. More than anything we have adopted the principle that Pauline taught us of ‘There is a line and that we can choose to be above or below it’. We have worked tirelessly on our systems and the effect is massive results in our turnover and growth.”

“Pauline coaches with integrity, intuition and intelligence.”

“Since Brookleigh Estate management team has been under the tuition of Pauline major changes have occurred on the property all positive and all as a direct result of coaching. One business has gone from a negative to positive bottom line. Another business has redirected its energies and services to a simpler format and also become profitable in the 3 months it has been running.”

“Our focus of coaching has now moved from management of businesses to the management of major events.”

“Pauline’s ongoing coaching is invaluable to our companies as she encourages us to work “on” the business growth, when it’s always so easy to get caught up working “in” the business!”

  • Employed a fantastic team with Action’s recruiting system
  • Business works 80% without owner and director.
  • Able to take many overseas trips per year
  • Enabled Director to purchase Dream Property by the ocean

“The Brookleigh team have been receiving coaching from Pauline Bright for two years now and many of the positive changes that we have affected are as a direct result of the coaching and training that we have received from Pauline. Stewart’s restaurant has now gone into a profit mode and has sustained that position for the last 6 months. We now have systems and team members who responsible for their own areas.

“Apart from the financial achievements we now have a committed team that are passionate about their workplace and their goals. Team training days with Pauline have become a much looked forward to event at Brookleigh.”

“On a personal level I feel that I have grown and developed in ways greater than I would have ever hoped for, two years ago. Pauline showed me the tools to organise myself and my life. I now work on my business and achieve what I could only dream of for so many years.”

“One year ago I purchased my dream – A holiday home on the ocean. Now, I not only own my own piece of heaven but I am able to spend two or three days in it, I do so without any guilt feelings as I know that our systems are in place and my team have pride in the work.”

“Pauline is not only my coach but has become a constant source of inspiration. As a creative person myself, I have found Pauline immensely helpful in directing my strengths to successful conclusions for both my business and myself.”

“I mostly admire Pauline’s ability to adapt her training methods to suit her clients. The personalities at Brookleigh are different to many others in business. Pauline realised this from the outset and has always dealt with us in very effective ways.”

“We have sold the restaurant, by setting our RAS and putting it in the present tense. We set a date and everything fell into place. I look at the lessons I have learned from Pauline, not only for business but for life. Everything I have learned has been amazing.”
