We inspire people to be more motivated

Motivation is key to unlocking potential

Whether we get out of bed to go to school, college or work, we do so because we are motivated. Until now, it has been hard to identify what it is that gives us that energy. We work with individuals, schools and businesses, using Motivational Maps, to identify individual’s motivators and give them strategies to maintain and improve their motivation – resulting in happier, more engaged individuals and improved performance.

Young people today have so many challenges.

We can tell you what makes your child ‘tick’ and provide effective, simple, easy to implement strategies to engage your child. Sound good? Contact us today to find out more.

Motivated and engaged students and teachers achieve more.

Understanding what motivates teachers and students improves results, enhances attendance and retention and helps your school or college achieve more. Get in touch today to find out more.

Is it just lucky people who find jobs they love?

We don’t believe it is. Most people spend, on average, 23 complete years of our life at work so it’s important to find a job you enjoy. You create your own opportunities and we can help you find a job you love. Get in touch today.

Running a successful business and energising staff is hard work.

Developing your greatest asset, your staff, is the key to a happy, healthy and productive workforce. Increase engagement, reduce staff turnover and sickness absence and achieve more today. Developing employee potential is the key to a happy, healthy and productive workforce. Call us now.

“Thank you Sarah for a really interesting session with Louella and Sasha. The questionnaire was simple for them to complete but the report was really comprehensive – as well as reinforcing things we already knew, it provided some really useful food for thought on their motivators (including, interestingly, how they can use this insight to push and develop themselves further).

I was really impressed with your style and approach and how you engaged with them. Thanks again for a really helpful session.”

Gill Bonello

“Using my Motivational Map®  report we discussed roles and organisations that would provide the right stimulus and environment for me to enjoy work. I found this really enlightening and have been using it as a touchstone in my search for jobs”


Melanie (Lang) Not-for-profit professional, Melbourne, Australia

“Hi Sarah,  I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how pleased we were with all you have done for us. The process of getting our son’s Motivational Map done was very easy ‘Plain Sailing’ you could say! It enlightened us as to how to communicate and incentivise him I’m not saying that we are finding that ‘plain sailing’, but then most 13 rising 14 yr old boys don’t have a manual but you have given us the next best thing.We were able to share this information with school, his private Tutor (who particularly ran with some of the suggestions) and family members.”
