Master-classes and Mentoring For Leaders

And Leadership Teams.

I engaged Ian Berry to talk to my team and challenge them to bring their very best to the office every single day as we commenced the new financial year.

I recommend Ian as a value-add to any business leader or staff member and feel confident each participant will walk away inspired with a greater understanding of themselves and equipped with additional ideas and techniques of how to achieve their very best performance each and every day.

Meticulously researched half-day master-classes.

Ian conducts master-classes (with 1:1 mentoring options) near his home (Ballarat, Geelong and Melbourne) on the third and fourth Wednesdays March through December. Find out more here.

Follow-through packages

Follow-through ensures insights, inspiration and ideas from your master-class become innovation in your workplace. Ian's aim is always to give you a minimum 10 times return on investment. Follow-through of course is key to guaranteeing such a return.

Follow-through can involve a number of methodologies which can be implemented online and in person or a combination of both. You can choose from short and succinct check-ins, after-action reviews and 1:1 and group mentoring sessions. In addition Ian will provide you with appropriate digital resources.

Here's an example

You might add an execution planning session in the afternoon following your morning master-class.

On the next day Ian could provide a 1:1 mentoring session for each member of your team.

You could then add 3 weekly 1:1 and/or group check-ins online.

Finally 30 days from the master-class you could engage Ian for an after-action-review in the morning and a fit for the future workshop in the afternoon.

What's in a master-class and mentoring for you and your team?

Ian will help you to adopt the two models pictured below in your own best way.

The consequences will be:
improved value creation and delivery (the essence of business),
competitive advantage (what every business must have to thrive),
and better business results at less personal cost (our deeply felt desire).

The simplest most profound way to thrive on change is one quantum leap at a time

When you engage in a master-class with Ian he will help you to apply his proven change process model pictured below in your own best way.


Ian Berry spoke at my Academy for Chief Executives Group. He was a very popular speaker with my members, with average marks of 8.8. Ian’s authenticity and ‘no-holds-barred’ approach to leadership was refreshing, inspirational, motivational and had great take away value. As I say, he ‘calls a spade a shovel’, and I highly recommend him to any CEO or Managing Director who wants to positively impact performance within their organisation.

 Don't Die With Your Music Locked In You

a.k.a. Life’s too short for B.S.
or Self-leadership is everyone’s business

Working with Ian will help you to unleash and enhance your own and other people's gifts (music, talent, element). Ian believes this is the number one role of leadership. The two short videos below will give you insight into this most powerful of concepts.

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.

I wanted to write to say thank you again, for such an inspiring lecture you gave to the TEC 19 group, up in the Blue Mountains over a week ago. You have had a significant impact on my thinking for the future and life in general. I know I will have contact with you again.

What Real Leaders Do and fake ones don't

One of Ian Berry’s special gifts is sharing stories other people feel themselves in.

When you participate in Ian's master-classes and work with him as your mentor you will be inspired  to explore who you need to be, what you need to do next, to elevate your leadership and be respected for your honesty and candour.

To lead is a privilege, an honour, and a continuous glorious guest.
It’s about living out loud every day; and learning, unlearning and relearning in public as well as in private.
