We help to navigate talented people through organisations, to ensure they have the greatest positive impact. We call this ‘right time, right table, right talent.’

Insights and News

“As part of my career transition coaching, I also had access to the Career Accelerator online platform. This was a great resource that allowed me to work and learn at my own pace and also to reinforce the coaching. The combination of the online tech together with the face to face coaching enabled me to secure a senior role in much less time than I had anticipated.  Having so much information at my fingertips was invaluable and highly beneficial to me.  I would happily recommend the career accelerator platform and the full outplacement program for anyone in transition or looking for that next new career move. Thank you CogNative.”

StevenEXECUTIVE PARTICIPANT

“Your coaching has literally changed my life, in six months I have made massive changes to my leadership style, which has resulted in a promotion, but more importantly, I am now enjoying my role. I feel calmer, I am embracing my leadership role and my team is more motivated. Who would have thought this was possible? Certainly not me. ”

Damian GattSYMAL

“I can’t thank you enough for your coaching and help. I have managed to get on the short list for two jobs! Yesterday I had to present to our Executive Team and used some of the tips and tricks you mentioned – and aced it!
I have spoken to so many people about how valuable your help and support were to me in getting my confidence and person back!”

Michelle PhillipsINTERVIEW AND RESUME DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

“Recently, after my role was made redundant, I was fortunate enough to be given outplacement support to help me get back on my feet and able to find a new role. June’s professionalism, knowledge and confidence helped me move forward in the same spirit. Not only was it great working with June, within 5 weeks of finding out my role was made redundant, I started a great new job.”
