“Before I went on the Residential with Margaret Hiatt, I was feeling mentally tangled. I was feeling frustrated by working 1 on 1 with clients and not earning what I wanted. While I was moving along in my business and achieving some of my goals, I felt that I had to take my business to the next level if I wanted my business to be stronger and wealthier. I didn’t feel confident that I knew how best to do this. I had visions and some ideas, but I wanted a proven plan of action to work with. I wanted mentoring to fast track and elevate myself and my business the quickest way possible. I was willing to take chances and risks and be completely guided by a successful mentor.
During my stay at the Residential, I was able to work closely with Margaret without interruption or distractions. Her dedication and commitment to providing me with a plan of action to lead me in the right direction in achieving my goals, was unwavering. She was very giving and generous in providing me with the necessary tools and skills to elevate me and my business. I worked on creating effectively videos for marketing, identifying my ideal client and avatar, developing client products and offers and received valuable guidance on developing programs for my business clients. She also provided me with a formula to take away and work on to increase my income. I enjoyed working with Margaret. She brought her depth of experience and knowledge, gave generally and skilfully and provided a beautiful and energetic environment in which to work in.
It’s been 2 months since working with Margaret at the Residential I have put my plan into action. I have a clear direction and path on which to move towards. I feel more self-assured with how to move forwards in growing my business and taking it to the next level. I am more confident in how to market my business positively and effectively. I have put systems in place for marketing through email and social media which has raised my profile and branding. I am able to articulate and speak about my business about what I offer clearly and concisely. I now have a number of high end programs to offer. I am developing a new website that reflects my vision and direction. I am attracting leaders and business clients and that’s what I wanted to achieve. I am excited for where I am heading and look forward to smashing my business, financial and personal goals.
My experience at the Residential was not only rewarding and valuable, it stays as special memory of a great time.
Thank you Margaret, I love what you do and how you do it. With appreciation and gratitude x”

“I was unsure when I booked the Transformational Public Speaking 1 Day Program what I would actually get out of it. Although I Chair a School Advisory Council, speak at staff meetings and sometimes am placed in situations where I have to speak publically, I did not have a fear of public speaking however wanted to improve and engage more with whom I was speaking. I learnt a lot, however what I took away as the most vital piece of information was the ability to ensure I knew before I started what the end result would be, “Start with the end in mind”.
I met an amazing group of people that when I left felt a real connection with. I also found Margaret was engaging as she didn’t go off the script and totally encouraged practice from literally the minute we walked in the room. She also gave me some information that I now have pinned up in my bathroom to motivate me every day. I walked away feeling I had learnt so much more than I expected and knew that if I ever needed help or more clarification Margaret would be more than willing to assist. I highly recommend the workshop and feel you would truly walk away with a lot more than you thought you would gain.”

“My first session with Margaret was to encourage me to gain more confidence and help with my public speaking; however I walked away with confidence knowing I could do anything I put my mind to, which included starting a new business – ‘Bez’s Bites’. Margaret encouraged me to not be afraid of what I wanted to achieve. Challenges were set and deadlines met and within 3 months “Bez’s Bites” was born.
The challenges Margaret set me were reasonable and rewarding. I am looking forward to a bright future with ‘Bez’s Bites’. I have now gone on to develop my latest venture Woof-it Healthy Dog Treats.Thank you Margaret!”

“Before attending the public speaking workshop with Margaret, it had been a number of years since I spoke in public so my confidence had waned somewhat. The workshop was a fun and supportive environment where I gained valuable insights and was able to add to and hone my skills. I am now ready to go out with confidence to speak about my business and run workshops of my own. I wholeheartedly recommend the public speaking workshop with Margaret”.

“I feel the $$ and time I spent to do this workshop was well worth it. Not only for the presentation and the helpful tips I’ve learnt, but to also meet some really great people. Thank you.”
“Thank you Margaret. Today has been quite transformational. I received far more out of the day than I thought I would have. I came with quite a fear of public speaking, you could call it a dread, and I thought I would attend the day, get as much out as I could and see what happens. The reality was that I leave this workshop with no dread of public speaking. Best and most valuable for me was learning effective skills to overcome the fear barrier.I was pleased to be able to practice today in a safe and non-judgemental environment. I now look forward to practicing these skills even more without the dread.
I can’t really thank you enough.”
“The issues I had about public speaking before attending Margaret’s workshop were feeling fear and anxiety, not connecting with the audience and feeling silly because my opening was too rushed or ambitious. The vitality of this workshop has inspired me to take public speaking as an important tool to include in my skills-toolbox. Brilliant! It’s more than public speaking.”

“The 3 greatest fears I had about public speaking were, speaking in front of strangers, making a fool of myself and freezing up and forgetting what to say. The workshop was great for helping me work through these fears and reservations about public speaking. I am now much more confident. Thank you.”
