THE CATYLYST THAT HAS REVOLUTIONISED OUR IDENTITY

"It is an understatement - but Sam is the catalyst that has revolutionised our organisation’s identity and provided a clarity of thinking previously missing. Her Monostory process reveals the one story of the brand and then wraps it in authentic language. This has been such a revelation to the board and for me as CEO of the organisation. But more than all this- Sam is someone who deeply cares for not only the outcome, but also the people through the process. I am humbled and so thankful for all Sam has brought and continues to bring to the organisation I serve and the role I have. Thank you."

CLARIFYING

“Before working with Sam I was frustrated when communicating my brand with designers. As a result I wasted money, revision after revision. In one session with Sam she helped me to get crystal clear on how I should communicate my brand values to everybody from designers to employees. I can honestly say it has saved me money, time and hassle. I would highly recommend business owners work through this process with [email protected]

SUSTAINABLE GUIDELINES FOR DECISION MAKING

“​​​​​​Going through a values based branding process with Sam was an incredibly defining moment in my life. Sam’s model of drawing out values and virtues I hold dear provided me with an extremely important framework that I use to make all my decisions by. What’s more, her approach is sustainable. Whereas many fall into the trap of looking simply to their skills and experience, Sam’s methodology has resulted in a set of principle-based guidelines that I use to make my choices that keeps my long term vision in full view. Sam has truly captured my essence throughout this process and I frequently recall the statements we developed in that time, reminding me to remain true to my personal values.”

 NEXT PRACTICE THINKING

“​​Sam is unlike any other person I’ve ever met. Dynamic, entrepreneurial and big thinking only begin to touch on some of the qualities she carries. Sam is a guru on trends, new ideas and conceptual thinking. Her love for keeping one finger firmly on the pulse of culture, society, people and brands always meant she was the go-to source for inspiration and next-practice thinking. I loved working with Sam and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a brilliant minded and passionate individual."

JOEL A'BELL - HILLSONG 

AN EXCELLENT LISTENER AND CREATIVE THINKER

“Sam helped lead and guide our board through a critically significant period of re-building and re-structure. Sam is an excellent listener and creative thinker, who assisted us in clarifying our values and core beliefs, to protect the integrity and credibility of our brand and to ensure we could operate at the highest level of effectiveness. A challenging process was made easier thanks to Sam’s open, honest, and easy manner, ability to drill down to core issues, synthesize input from various board members and her understanding of what we wished to achieve. We highly recommend her to any organisation embarking on a similar course.”
