"Your best tomorrow depends on your Heart-Leadership today."
Ian Berry

People make or break your business.

I've learned that organisations thrive when people feel valued, live values, and exchange and deliver value.

I explore this in the two minutes and 38 seconds video opposite.

To co-create such organisations requires wise leaders.

The best way to be a wise leader that I have discovered is to lead with and from your heart.

Hi I'm Ian Berry. For over 30 years I've been helping people to become the wise leaders you want to be.

Wise leaders live a life that is meaningful for you, has deep value for people within your circles of influence, and leaves a legacy in the now.


I’ve been privileged to be a member of the peer groups that have workshopped Ian’s last three books including Heart-Leadership. I’ve learned that leading from my heart, speaking from my heart, and then letting my head and hands drive the outcomes is an awesome way to live and to lead.

Meeting and working with Ian has completely changed my perspective on leadership. Appreciating people, enhancing their gifts and thinking in possibility are some of the changes he has taught me. Ian has had a significant impact on how I approach my work.

I've had the privilege of working with more than 1000 leaders, women and men, in over 40 countries.

Leaders like Darren who was faced with significant challenges and following a review asked for my help. 4 years on Darren's business is thriving. We are still working together.

You can read more examples of how I’ve worked with people like Darren and you to transform their businesses and to achieve your best results at the least personal and business costs.

My essence is to sense what most people don't, say what I sense in inspirational ways, and to shine lights on what's possible for you, and then help you to turn possibility into reality.

From 1974 - 1990 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.

In private practice since 1990 I've had the privilege to work worldwide with purpose-driven people in a myriad of industries as a business mentor. I'm a pioneer in the development and use of one-page plans and many associated innovations such as one-sentence strategy and one-quantum leap at a time momentum.

As a Professional Speaker I've given more than 3000 presentations (700+ keynotes and 2300+ presentation/conversations (over 500 online) from 30 minutes to 3 to 4 hours to 1 day).

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

The time, energy and money you invest in people development and business process improvement should yield you the greatest return of all your investments. I’m here for you to make this possibility a reality.
