for people co-creating/sustaining Remarkable Workplaces.

Better business results at less human and business cost since 1991.

Chris Pike

General Manager – Culture & Community, Surf Coast Shire Council

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ian for close to two years in one-on-one and group settings. Ian’s unconventional in his approach (refreshing!) but works to a brilliantly simple yet powerful philosophy that centres around our experiences as human beings (shocking I know!!). He’s a purpose and values-driven mentor and team builder who I’d recommend to anyone.

What’s in me for you

I’ve learned through working with over 1000 business owners/executives/team leaders, women and men, in over 40 countries since 1991 that the people who make the greatest positive difference in workplaces do so because of their

wisdom, wit and warmth,

candour and conviviality,

engagement and inspiration,

listening to understand skills and judgement when giving advice or passing on experience,

compassion,

capacity to change themselves, appreciate people and deliver value,

and trustworthiness.

These are all embodied in 7 relationship enhancement roles. Relationships drive business. Together I call people who embrace them all Sparkenators.


When Sparkenators live in your workplace every day and they’re teamed with 21st century managers and culture champions you can achieve your best possible results at the least human and business cost. I capture all of the above in the models ​pictured below.


​Our work together is all about you and carefully selected people enacting these models in your own best way.

My role is to advise, author/write, coach, communicate, consult, converse, facilitate, mentor, moderate, present/ speak in person (a one-off engagement, short-term projects, or we set up a regular schedule), be available online, and to produce audios, videos and other resources for your ongoing use.

As a mentor to me and my family members who lead and manage our businesses Ian Berry has made a significant difference to our personal and business success including our 570% growth in just under 5 years.

About me

From 1974 - 1991 I enjoyed a very successful corporate finance career including leading a 100million business unit.


I held Branch, Regional, and State manager roles in three Australian states receiving numerous awards for my leadership, development of people, and results.

Since then I've been a mentor to more than 1000 business leaders, women and men, in over 40 countries.

I've also given more than 3000 presentations. I hold the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation. Less than 12 percent of the 5,000+ speakers worldwide, who belong to the 14 member associations of the Global Speakers Federation (GSF), currently hold this professional designation.

I'm a Past National President of the Professional Speakers Association of Australia.

Below is a snapshot of some of the organisations whose leaders I've helped to thrive since 1991
