Hi all,

I’m Tina McDonald, I work with professional people who want to build a stronger succesful business or progress in their career.

I can help you progress further, grow your business, get back to work or manage your career without sacrificing your personal life.

Managing large teams since 2002 and coaching people since 2003, using my coaching tools, challenges and events to keep you on track. My no bullshit guidance plus the hard work from you, means you will reach your goals and get further than you dream was possible.

My experience in training groups and individuals means that the leadership and business knowledge I have can be passed on you or your teams to ensure success.
