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

Each master-class is standalone
yet each one is carefully designed to help you
in your own best way, to be remarkable and do meaningful to you and highly valuable to others work. 

The greater these three the better our world will be. 

You can expect a minimum ten times return on your investment and the following three as major outcomes

1) improved value creation and delivery (the essence of business),
2) competitive advantage (what every business must have to thrive),
3) better business results at less personal cost (our deeply felt desire).

Read why we're all remarkable here and here.

This simple message always resonates with Ian’s clients.
For many it has been the starting point for profound change.

People don’t want to be appraised.

We want to be appreciated.

When appreciating people is in alignment with personal and business aspirations, backed up by accountability we are all capable of bringing the best version of ourselves to our work every day.
Ian Berry

I currently work with Ian 1:1 and will be participating in some of these master-classes as will members of my team. Ian's master-classes and mentoring are incredibly valuable. I highly recommend both.

The Ten Business And Life-changing Topics

Each master-class is standalone. There will be special catch-ups online for anyone registered who misses a master-class or if you complete one or more master-classes and want to be across the whole program.

Master-classes 1 - 3 are based on Ian's best-selling Changing What’s Normal book. You can download a PDF version here. It’s likely that the paperback version of this book will be in print again in 2018. If so you will also receive your copy.

Master-classes 4 - 8 are based on Ian's The Appreciative Leader handbook. If you do not have your signed, numbered, limited edition copy you will receive yours while stocks last. Should the 150 limit be reached you will receive a digital copy and the book version when that becomes available. Learn more about this publication here.

Master-classes 9 and 10 are based on Ian's new work Who Before Do - leading and thriving in the new world of work that is scheduled to be published in early 2019. Anyone who participates in one or more master-classes will receive a copy.

A signature to all of Ian's work is that while what he says is important, it's nowhere near as important as what you hear yourself say to yourself, who you become and then do your own unique work.

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.

The two short videos below provide great insights into Ian's unique style and content.

There’s nothing quite like a human being fully alive. 

To witness this remarkable phenomenon we must unleash and enhance our own and other people’s gifts.

I call this the number one role of leadership.
Ian Berry

“Ian adds value & depth to structure, people development, meetings and conversations. Mentoring sessions are always enlightening and solutions based. For any business that is needing to thrive through change, Ian can offer a range of tools to support this with a humanised approach. Solutions will naturally result. I will be participating in some of these master-classes along with colleagues”

It’s about living out loud every day; and learning, unlearning and relearning in public as well as in private.

Ian Berry

At the start of 2015 it became clear on the road ahead for my business we were facing some serious challenges.

We had just purchased the Budget franchise and were experiencing inconsistent business results, some big rental agency changes, and some poor staff attitudes had crept in.

I had heard Ian speak at a function in 2014 and I had been impressed with the message of his talk that day.

Ian has worked as a mentor to me since. He's also run sessions and worked 1:1 with my staff. I'll be participating in these master-classes as will members of my staff.

We've continue to make small shifts in how we conduct our business that make a significant difference with my key people, how we work, and to our results.
