"One of the best decisions in my professional career was to engage Garret Norris as a personal coach for my role as Director of the Australian Dance Festival. Not only did he bring in over a 300% return on investment on the fees we paid him, but more importantly, he gave me the tools to stand on my own two feet as a director and a leader. Garret is a joy to work with. His honest advice delivered with a sense of humour really hit some home truths within me. His advice to “stop leaning, and start living” still resonates with me now when I feel myself shying away from taking the hard decisions. I can’t recommend Garret highly enough. The lessons he has taught me has enabled me to grow the Australian Dance Festival exponentially and secure amazing relationships with my stakeholders."

"I have personally attended seminars lead by Garret numerous times. He has a knack for leading discussion topics that are captivating, relevant and which put in demonstrative key tools that can be applied in and out of work. By speaking to Garret, one can tell very quickly that he is a professional leader. He has a wide array of skills including the following areas; strategic decisions, business management, negotiation, leadership, motivational speaking, project management and more. I am glad to have him in my professional network and look forward to doing business with him in the future.

"We engaged Healthy Business Builder to do a complete review of our Sales and Marketing strategy and the findings were a complete surprise to me as I was clearly to close to the business to see the obvious areas for improvement.
Garret Norris implemented a complete strategy of change in the business which saw immediate results in the uplift in our sales. The Sales workshops and follow up coaching was tailored and they obviously understand that sales is what counts to our business, everyone related to the key messages.
However, the coaching at an Executive level and the introduction of his "Horizon Planning" help my leadership team and I focus on what is important to reach our goals.
I would highly recommend Healthy Business Builder coaching as I not only have grown personally but the return on investment was almost instant and we still refer to the key messages before approaching any situation that would or could have an impact on why we are here, to grow the Business.
Thank you again Garret and we look forward to the continued relationship"

I thought I’d drop you both a quick note to say ‘well done’ with the recent training programme for our Customer Service team. Garret, you were quick to realise where the ‘touch points’ were and you focussed in on how the team should use the tools and techniques moving forward. I was pleased with the coaching sessions with our team leader. Having had a chance to review the training with her, I’m starting to see the penny-drop and hopefully she can move on from here. Even though she feels overloaded with new thoughts and ideas, she is starting to use them with her team and other internal customers. I think the 30/60/90 day task planning for her, as well as the documented strategic plan will be very useful in ensuring she continues to develop her team."
Once again, thanks and well done
