What exactly lies around the next corner is unknown for all of us. 

Peace of heart and mind and confidence as we approach comes from 
our human being centred way of self-leadership, wise conversations, and partnering.

Hi I’m Ian Berry.

Have you noticed that once you decide something possibility begins to make itself known to you.

Flourishing requires a commitment. First we must decide. 

My speciality is helping you to clarify and decide, determine your strategy and execution plan, and then support you as you turn possibility into reality.

I began working as a mentor in the mid 1980’s as a part of my role as a corporate executive. 

When I left the corporate world in 1990 I became a mentor for executives, business owners and leaders, community and sports leaders, and professional services providers.

My approach has always been human being centred. I’ve worked with over 1000 leaders, women and men, in more than 40 countries.

My focus is on helping you to be the very best human being you can be.

In the 5 minutes and 46 seconds video below I explore the simplicity yet profoundness of focusing on being the best human being we can be.

In the short video below I explore my approach to mentoring.

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.

My promises to you are:

  • Heart-stirring, Thought-provoking, Life-changing, and Wise conversations that illuminate possibility and underpin turning possibility into reality.
  • I’ll always be encouraging you to find your own way because I know that my way
 and anyone else’s way won’t work for you.
  • I will share my hard earned wisdom with you in ways that you can apply it in 
 your own best way.
  • I will help you to find clarity. When you are clear, best behaviour follows.
  • Our work together is about your self-development and expression, your people
 leadership, and your process innovation.
  • All of our work together is bespoke.

My private roster bespoke mentoring program is human being centred designed and uses the proven process pictured opposite.

You can learn more about the process here.

1:1 and group work is available.

You are only ever invoiced monthly in advance which means you always have an exit option.

My role is be alongside you and your colleagues where appropriate as you see and shine light on what’s possible and then shift there.

Our work together is artisan. We will make processes, routines/rituals and ways of being and doing that enhance your own human being centred ​self-leadership, wise conversations, and partnering. This will lead to:

  • becoming the best human being you can be.
  • creative, built to last solutions to your problems and challenges.
  • hearing your heart first and only then engaging your head.
  • best results at less personal costs.
  • greater life/work balance (harmony).
  • changing what's normal when the status quo is no longer serving you.
  • cohorts where people feel valued, live values and deliver and exchange remarkable value.

Included in your ​Private Roster Program package is a guaranteed complimentary place (transferrable) at
my online events.

Next Step

Key outcomes of working together
1) Being and becoming the best human being you can be.
2) Enriching and expanding your conversation and communication skills.
3) Enhancing your positive and productive impact in your circles of influence.

As all mentoring is bespoke, let's have a conversation first to explore options and decide together what suits you best. 

Please send me a text to +61 418 807 898 during Australian business hours or 7.30 - 9.30 AM both United Kingdom and Europe times.

I will call you to schedule our conversation.
This precious time together gives me the opportunity to hear your story, to explore possibilities, and for you when appropriate to decide a package that suits you best. 

Pay what you feel is right for you

A long time ago I embraced the concept of value based fees for my bespoke mentoring and speaking services. This meant that you and I reached a shared-view regarding the value to you of us working together.

In the past for my other services I offered a fixed fee. This meant that I was telling you the value of my services.

In today’s world true value lies in the eyes of the beholder. Today choice is precious and something to be savoured and so I feel the best approach is for you is ‘pay what you feel is right for you’. This puts you in charge of deciding the value to you. 

I believe that paying a price that is relative to your income, and to the value you receive, is a fair system. Whatever amount you decide to invest is only ever known to you and me.

I realise that deciding how much to invest can be difficult and so I offer the option to call and discuss with me and we then reach a shared-view. My number is +61 418 807 898.

My Mentoring Manifesto

Meaningful for me, highly valuable for you and/or you and your cohort.
Energising for everyone.
No BS - candid, convivial, compassionate, conscious and compelling human being centred conversations.
Trust between everyone is first and foremost.
One focus, one step at a time.
Relationships are paramount. 
Inspirational stories that stir hearts and inspire shifts in thinking when the status quo is no longer serving, and lead to step-ups in behaviour change, modification or nuancing.
Nifty, and never thought of before solutions to problems and challenges.
Gratitude, generosity of spirit, and remaining grounded are the foundations of working together.

A further option should you reside in my neck of the woods. 

Please call me on 0418 807 898 above to schedule a 'Wisdom Walk'. 

We take a walk and talk for an hour or so and then have lunch. There are a number of great walks near my home on the Bellarine Peninsula. I also walk in Ballarat, Geelong and Melbourne Inner City. There's an investment required for this option. You decide what it will be after our lunch.

Walking is good for the heart, mind and soul. Nature and human to human conversation are also wonderful ways to gain wisdom.

Group/team options also available.

My gratitude to Alan Moore for the inspiration to provide this option.
