Your Career Investment

Be Bold, Be Brave


Why now?

Are you looking to accelerate your career? Feeling stuck or your progress hampered? This program is your opportunity to invest and take charge of your career.

The best investments in life take time, energy and resources. This year-long program brings together a unique series of insights, tools and techniques, providing what you need to amplify your career.


Success isn’t a linear path. Nor is there only one way to progress. Now more than ever, achieving your goals requires you to actively design and chart your course.

The good news is you don’t need to do this alone.

Think of me as your personal career advisor. I’m here to help you navigate the ups and downs, develop your career strategy and determine which tactics to deploy.

But like all excellent investments, this is a long term play. If you cash in too early, you’ll miss the growth opportunities. If you don’t put in the work, you won’t get the return you seek. If you follow the herd, you won’t end up where you want to be.

Are you ready to leap into your brilliant future?

Why does this work?

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.’
Benjamin Franklin

Your Career Investment Program is underpinned by the critical career rules of success: education, peer support, time to embed learnings, practice, guidance and insights from a skilled practitioner, and access to a vast range of knowledge and ideas.

What are the risks?

Like all good investments, there is risk.  Why? Bcause you will be asked to do things you’ve never done before. Your mind will be stretched.  Your assumptions about what’s possible will be challenged.

But with no risk comes little reward.

Hedging your bets?

Still on the fence?  Still hedging your bets?  Well don’t wait too long because there are only ten spots available.

It’s critical to assess if this is the right program for you.  To register your interest, please provide your contact details and Michelle’s office will find a time to chat with you further.

You do your due diligence, we’ll do ours.

What people say about Michelle


Michelle was a guest speaker at a work event. Her vast, varied and impressive professional executive career, her discipline, her practical tips on leveraging your skills, navigating corporate life and her authenticity greatly impressed me.

After reading Michelle’s second book ‘Career Leap - How to reinvent and liberate your career’, I sought out Michelle’s mentorship to help me navigate a career transition.

Michelle’s 6-month Accelerator mentoring program was customised and well-paced to fit my circumstances and gave me structure, support and inspiration. The extensive reading, latest research materials, the toolkit of strategies and practical insights that Michelle provided challenged me to think differently. The 6-month mentoring program was an enriching self-investment and transformation opportunity. I also had the opportunity to participate in the Your Career Investment Program, which provided additional tools and a peer support network. It was a fantastic experience.

I highly recommend Michelle’s programs if you are looking to supercharging your career or re-shaping your value proposition.

Senior Manager, Operations & Project Management


I would absolutely recommend Michelle's Your Career Investment programme. I’ve learnt so much about myself, which has been invaluable. I liked the structure, updates and preparatory work and particularly enjoyed the mix of group and 1-1 sessions. Most importantly, in terms of outcomes, the course has completely changed my thought process. I’ve shifted my approach to tackling tough conversations and am more prepared to challenge in a constructive way and negotiate my way through. A great investment of time and energy.

Kelly Teague

General Manager, Auckland, District Health Board


Having participated in many of Michelle's programs before, I was keen to be part of the Your Career Program.

One of the key benefits was the program's year-long format, which provided ample time to work with the content, generate insights and try new ideas at work. As with all of Michelle's work, the program was exceptionally designed, packed with content and ideas, and well supported throughout.

I really enjoyed learning from participants from different industries and the one-on-one coaching sessions with Michelle. If you are looking to invest in your career development & stretch yourself, I’d highly recommend Michelle's Your Career Program.

Michelle's Your Career Investment program covers a diverse range of topics. I loved Michelle's preparation and the relaxed nature of the sessions. Her willingness to openly share her own experiences helped to create an open and collaborative environment. There was time for reflection and the activities were practical and able to be applied in real life. The course provided a wonderful way to continue to reflect and grow. I really enjoyed the year with Michelle and the rest of the program participants..

Nina Stamell

General Counsel & Company Secretary


Through Michelle’s extensive career successfully navigating the C-Suite, she provided me context, support, advice, and a well-honed listening ear whether I was facing tactical personality challenges or broader organisational and inter-organisational dynamics. Career advancement is about relationship management and Michelle not only understands that, she excels at it. Michelle knows how to give you clarity on your abilities and insight into how to own your strengths so that you are driving your own success.

Michelle’s heartfelt enthusiasm, insights and coaching approach has supported me in being absolutely clear on what my superpowers are and how I can be my best self every day in all aspects of my life and career. Michelle gets me, she challenges me to think differently and most importantly keeps me focused when everyone else is trying to pull me in different directions. I have immense respect for Michelle and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend working with her.

Claire Cornfield

General Manager Operations, HESTA


Working with Michelle helped me shift my approach and re-position myself to make positive progress in the work environment. She was a constant source of support and provided sage advice along the way, which definitely helped me develop. It was a very worthwhile and beneficial process that provided me with more insight around the politics that play out daily at work.

Risk Executive, Asia Pacific Region, Financial Services


Michelle has a unique ability to quickly understand an organisational environment and context, and to therefore ensure the sessions are targeted and relevant. I never felt like Michelle was following a formulaic approach, but that she was responding to what I needed, tailoring the sessions and contextualising the advice. She is not only supportive, wise and very insightful but is not afraid to hold me accountable.

Matt Scrafton

Senior PMO professional, New Zealand


During the time we worked together I found Michelle's counsel, support and challenge invaluable. She helped to keep me focused on my key drivers and long term goals, challenged me to think differently about the options in front of me, and encouraged me to forge a path forward that worked for me. She genuinely cares about getting the best outcomes for the people she works with and in short gets results!

James Haviland

Risk Executive, Financial Services


Michelle is a fantastic coach and mentor – she made a huge difference to my first year in an executive role – providing insightful and strategic advice, whilst drawing from a wealth of diverse and relevant experience. Her support didn’t just apply to my day-to-day job, but also for my general career and life. It has proved invaluable, and I will use and apply it for many years to come.

Alison Huitfeldt

General Counsel, Linfox Armaguard Pty Ltd


I worked with Michelle during my transition to a new executive position. She provided enormous support, great counsel and appropriate challenge to ensure I was able to leverage my skills and leadership to best effect in the new role. Her extensive experience guarantees that you walk away with additional knowledge, insight and fortitude. It was an enriching and very worthwhile experience.
