Ian Berry - Providing Sustainable & Increased Momentum for Strong Businesses Since 1991


Gifts That Will Help You To Be Remarkable

Below is access to the best of my learning, unlearning, and relearning (that can made available online) about the remarkablisation of workplaces from my work with more than 1000 leaders, women and men, in over 40 countries since 1991, and ongoing.

Complimentary symposiums are held online on the first Monday of every month (except December and January) from 4.30 through 5.30 pm AEST. We explore the 5 foundations for remarkablising your workplace pictured on the left.

Before participating in a symposium you download a red paper and in the case of 'Remarkable is the new normal', a workbook. You then take action in your own best way before the symposium.

At the end of the symposium we arrange a time for a 1 hour online after action review and sustaining momentum workshop.

All the detail is at the registration link here.

Approximately 3 hours investment of your attention over 3 months for better business results at less personal cost.

Gift Mentoring Session
because sometimes you don't want to watch, read, or listen,
you just want to have a conversation with someone who has been around the block a few times

I'm available at times shown below on Mondays for a 20 minute session.

We'll meet online via my Zoom meeting room. I'll provide the link via email after you book.

We'll pinpoint together one area of focus where success is crucial to you right now. You'll leave your session with at least one great idea that you can begin to immediately implement.

Please note: Only one gift mentoring session available per person.

Business Vitality Check-ups

One of my one-off and regular professional services is using proven tools and techniques and my expertise to provide you with a check-up.

Pictured below is the newest of the tools I use to help me to fully understand exactly where you are, and precisely where you want to go to next . You can download it here. Inside are 8 awesome actions you can begin to take today.

You can download the six remarkability pulse checks that I use to establish needs, expectations, and desires before I tailor-make my work with my clients here.

This special guide and pulse check are based on the most valuable lesson I have learned about highly successful workplaces since 1991 through working as a mentor - when people feel valued, live values, and deliver value, the enterprise is highly successful, regardless of industry, country, or economic climate.

Changing What's Normal

​In May 2017 I celebrated 10 years of blogging. I carefully reviewed all of the 1391 posts prior to May and wrote 13 new posts on what I feel are my best learnings for purpose-driven leaders right now.

All 13 posts and more are in this one ebook called 'Meaningful Work and The Meaning of Life' which you can download here.

I also share insights I find valuable via the Scoop.it platform
on change champions and the new world of work. These are also shared via LinkedIn and Twitter (see below) should you be connected to me on either platform.
