Testimonials

We were delighted with John Hale’s keynote presentation Growing Digital Wings at our annual digital conference. John’s presentation was so well received, that we scheduled it again on the second day of the conference, so even more people could learn from John.
Margaret Blade - CEO Regional Development Australia

I think John’s ‘Basic Instinct’ presentation to our members was one of the best presentations we have seen at AIEA. As a speaker, John captured our attention early and earned our trust quickly, so that the true nature of the leaders in the audience could be revealed, shared and celebrated. I recommend John as a highly skilled professional speaker, who can adapt quickly and add significant value to a leadership audience. We look forward to having John back to speak again next year.
Mal Walker - Chairman Australian Interim Executive Association

We invited John Hale from Hale Consulting 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.
Director, GeoLINK

Whether it is organising highly successful information technology forums for our members or performing focus group consultations for thirty small rural communities of less than 5000 people and then developing appropriate health care service models, Hale Consulting Group’s breadth of experience and professional approach ensures I can be confident of a quality outcome every time.
National President, Rural Doctors Association

Hale Consulting Group’s lateral and clear thinking has been of immense help in those times when I have felt backed into a corner. Our company & management have benefited enormously both financially and personally due to their creativity, commitment and expertise.
Managing Director, Byron Bay Taxis & Limousines

I realized I had plenty of options going forward and I needed some help in evaluating them and choosing the right ones. I found working with Hale Consulting Group amazing. They are so grounded and able to quickly and powerfully choose the right pathway out of many and offer the most suitable and sustainable strategies to make sure I arrive successfully.
Founder , Byron Bay Detox Retreats

We hired Hale Consulting Group to assess our culture and help us modernise the way we operate as an organisation. The result was fantastic. They delivered an action packed and magical day of team building and awareness raising games and exercises. Morale is much higher and we are working much more cooperatively and effectively as a result.
Dealer Principal, City Toyota

In my first two years working with Hale Consulting Group, I have grown Nickel Energy by over 150%. They made sure I set goals that were right for me. They helped me navigate the future at multiple levels and delivered the skills and awareness my management team needed and found me the key senior management personnel I needed. They have tremendous wisdom, expertise and skill and their level of integrity is second to none.
Founder , Nickel Energy

Hale Consulting Group cut quickly through to the core issues and then supported me in establishing simple yet valuable habits to manage my life more effectively, habits that I continue to use in my daily life years later. Their insight and skills provide solutions for personal as well as corporate growth. They operate at maximum integrity and come highly recommended.
Founder, Thursday Plantation

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.
NSW Sugar Milling Co-operative Limited

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.
