Testimonials for John Hale

We invited John to facilitate our Company Development Forum. John is a skilful presenter - he extended us both as individuals and as a group. His positive energy and enthusiasm served to break down barriers, build a strong cohesiveness within the group and gave us valuable communication and relationship - building skills. I highly recommend John as a facilitator for any organisation looking to improve its internal and external communication skills.



The Board identified the need to bring new and current Board Members up to date with the responsibilities of being a Director. The Board Governance Training Day that John facilitated for us was well received by new and experienced Directors alike. John’s knowledge, professional experience and entertaining style kept the group engaged and made for a highly effective day.

John Hale has undertaken a number of assignments for Lismore City Council and in my opinion his greatest strengths lie in his ability to think strategically and to guide others along that path. He demonstrates very effective people management skills and can adapt his style to suit variable client groupings and scenarios. John played a significant role in the development of this Council’s overarching Strategic Plan and this required intense workshop exercises with Councillors. Soon after I invited John to assist with a radical restructure of the organisation’s management team. I found John’s input invaluable and importantly both of these key exercises have proven to be success stories for Lismore City Council.
