Questions I Get Asked

I've been in the Design game for years. Do I really need coaching & mentoring?

Simple answer is, Yes. We all need help at one stage or another. How do you stay relevant or practice new skills?

Let's say you've been a Research for years. How will you learn & practice Prototyping or Testing for example? And, vice versa. 

Does your Design leadership or organisation provide ongoing training & development?

I've recently graduated. Do I really need coaching & mentoring?

You've learned some theory & now your implementing your learning, but the first year as a Designer is challenging & it can be difficult to find your feet. Where & how do you find support after graduating? How did you define your path? How do you find Design jobs? How do you refine your portfolio? 

What if I only need one session?

One session (when done well) could make a significant difference to your career. 

What's the application process?

You simply fill out an online form which takes less than a minute.

I'm not based in Australia. Does that matter?

No. This program is completely online using Skype (or Google Hangouts), Slack, email & various other online tools. These are tools I currently use to communicate with my students from all over the world. 

Why isn't this free?

Simply, I'll tell you things most others won't. I'll be honest. I'm not teaching people from all over the world & quite a bit of planning & execution is required to ensure I deliver a personalised approach. The resources, experience & advice I provide is based on years of personal experience.

Think of me as a personal trainer, only for your career. 

 

 

Can I 'cancel' at anytime?

Yes. There are no lock-in contracts here. Just give me enough notice & we can stay friends!

Do you offer refunds?

No.
