Services for Businesses and Professionals

Visualising success

Business Coaching

Only two thirds of new businesses survive the first two years, and only half make it past five. For those businesses that do survive, many do not reach their potential. Whether you want to make sure your business has a future, or you want it to grow and reach its potential, we have the skills and experience to help.

It is important to have someone external to the company who can help the leader to see the bigger picture, and have an unemotional viewpoint on what is going on within their team.

Our health retreats are ideal for conflict resolution, developing teamwork and aligning staff’s personal goals with the business vision. Enquire today.


Personal Mentoring

Whether you wish to land your dream job, qualify for the Olympics, or balance your professional and personal lives, a personal coach can provide the individualised, professional guidance that you need. For over 35 years Big Picture Learning has been helping doctors, corporate executives, professional athletes and other ambitious individuals achieve their goals.
