Meet Our Clients : Read What They’ve Said
I have sought Norah Breekveldt’s counsel for over four years. She is a very experienced, practical, committed, well networked and contemporary thinking, leadership advisor who has guided me in managing my career. Like all great mentors she provides a framework and a challenge for you to find your own solutions and consequently achieve success.
In addition, as person and a friend, I find her extremely well balanced, engaging and empathetic combined with that most important of all elements, a great generosity of spirit.

Coaching sessions with Norah have been an extremely rewarding experience. Norah provided me the opportunity to focus, clarify and realign my goals both personally and professionally. I personally benefited from Norah’s approach and highly recommend her to anyone looking to refocus and improve upon their own achievement potential.
Carolyn De Gois, Chief Information Officer, K & S Freighters
Upon nomination as chair to a large NFP, I felt that I needed some guidance and coaching for this position. Norah came beside me and sat with me as I worked through some personal issues before I felt that I could receive the coaching I needed to fulfill my role.
Norah was gentle, but firm, insightful and intuitive. She soon picked up on what I needed to bring out the best in myself and to lift me to a new level of confidence for my new role. As well as resources, Norah had small ideas or tips to put into play, in the different situations I would be facing.
Norah is very respectful of my time and privacy, and would respond expediently to any and all queries I have.
I would recommend Norah as person to have beside one whether in a new venture or wanting to up your confidence to take you to another level of competency. She has the ability to bring out the best in one, even lifting you higher, than you may have thought .possible.
Elizabeth Hamer, Board Chair, CBM
Norah was engaged as a key member of the CoachCorp team during a 3-year culture change program at Hazelwood Power Station. Norah’s role was to work with the both the executive leadership team and the management team, to challenge their conventional ideas, beliefs and thinking.
Over the lifecycle of the engagement, Norah played an integral role, particularly with the executive leadership team “plan and lead program”. In this program, Norah was instrumental in the development of the teams critical leadership function. One of the outstanding pieces of this work delivered by Norah was her ability to connect leading neuroscience knowledge with the fields of leadership development, management training, change management and coaching, and applied this to 800 employees and contractors across a power station and mine environment.
The factor that sets Norah apart is her passion for leadership and challenging conventional wisdom. This challenge of thinking promotes deep discussions on leadership and leads to the discovery of innovative solutions to complex organisational issues.
Neil Betts, former Business Optimisation Manager, IPRH
Norah Breekveldt is an exceptionally adroit facilitator who has led three strategic review programs that I have participated in. Norah is highly skilled at assisting groups to dissect, analyse and discuss the relevant issues and come to useful and practical conclusions. In particular, she is adept at cutting through jargon and woolly thinking and ensuring discussion is both time-efficient and stays on topic. Norah strikes the right balance between being content-engaged and providing objective feedback and I would strongly recommend her for strategy assignments.
