It is a privilege for me to write a letter recommending Neale Roberts from SA Business Coaches as a
business coach.
I met Neale in my previous role as HR Executive at Matus a Bidvest owned company. I needed a
business coach to further develop and stretch my strategic business partnering skills and leadership
style. Having been coached previously and being an advocate of business coaching I had a firm idea
and expectation of what I was looking for. Neale surpassed all my expectations. Neale would go on
to coach other middle and senior managers within the organisation.
What differentiated Neale from my previous business coaches was his approach and methodology.
Our first session was spent at length developing my coaching objectives with clear outcomes on
what I would need to do to achieve these objectives. This was documented on an online coaching
platform called Coach in the Corner that is exclusive to Neale and his team to use.
After each session, Neale would update the platform with the notes from the coaching session
together with progress against our agreed outcomes and any new items from the session. This
assisted in keeping me focussed and on track on what I needed to do to achieve my set objectives.
Neale would also follow up between sessions on how I am progressing with my goals. Through the
platform Neale would send me articles and/or assessments to read or do based on our coaching
sessions. This was unbelievably valuable in deepening my understanding of issues being dealt with
and in aiding my progress in these areas.
What really stood out for me was Neale’s uncanny ability to understand business from an
operational, financial and strategic vantage point and his deep understanding of human behaviour.
This allowed Neale to present options, ideas, alternatives, suggestions, tools, learnings in a way that
gave me a deeper understanding of my own actions, reactions, perceptions and thinking that
impacted the business and me.
My coaching experience with Neale was a great journey of growth and development. I am a better
leader and businesswoman for having been coached by him and I continue to use Neale as needed.
Yours sincerely

Hi Neale,

Firstly thank you for everything you have done through this process. I really feel like this is a huge investment to help grow Arctic Edge and myself as a person.

Onward!!!!

During the early stages of developing my business it was crucial for me to find the support and implement
the processes and procedures necessary to scale and grow in profitably.
These systems, as worked on with Elana and her college Neale, helped my business not only grow an
average of 25% per annum over a 5-year period, but also kept my business afloat after I fell victim to a hit
and run that had me in high care for well over three months. Elana is 110% invested in her clientele and
free willingly always goes the extra mile.

“In one word: Professional
Mentors restructured and rebuilt my company. They are mentors; they showed me how to run a
business.
Above: analysis of strengths, put new systems in place to make my business run more
efficiently. They fine-tuned the engine.
They coached and trained me on how to run a business for profit and efficiency. What Mentors
offers is equivalent of university qualification e.g. business strategy. But specialised – targeted
to my needs and for my business. This cuts our four years of study.
Yes and more grew out of it – broader value from that. I didn’t realise, at first, what I would get
from my engagement with Mentors. They gave more than I expected. “
