An old African proverb states that ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ could be amended for small businesses – ‘it takes a collection of great business owners to raise a business’. We have been very fortunate to work with some great fellow small businesses and owners that help us at Institute of Management & Leadership Development achieve what we do and we wanted to say thank you.

Like so many businesses, it wasn’t always so; we have placed trust in those we shouldn’t have, spent more than we should have on services that didn’t deliver. Thankfully that is no longer that case.

We are grateful for the products, service, coaching, advice and assistance of the following people that helped us in 2020 and continue in 2021:
Jenn Donovan at Social Media & Marketing Australia
Stuart Smith at Fiscal Artisans
Evan Spargo, PCC at Coach Masters Academy
Bethany Whitters at Strategic Surveys
Brad Hauck at MWM
Hannah Nicholls at Rooftop Media

Thank you to the great small business owners that support other small business owners, and to the myriad of clients that I have had the privilege of coaching, teaching, facilitating and debriefing in the last 12 months in Melbourne and Victoria. Thanks also to those that have taken the time to express their gratitude in the form of a LinkedIn recommendation or Google review – they make the world of difference in our world.
