Head of Learning at Coles Supermarkets (Australia) Pty Ltd


“I have known Bev Kennedy for in excess of 17 years in both a professional and personal capacity; throughout that time I have found Bev to be a highly professional and reliable person who devotes herself to the personal growth and development of those she coaches and mentors. Executives and managers who have benefited from Bev’s work over the years have found her to be both engaging and inspiring.

From a personal perspective I have found the mentoring and coaching I have received from Bev in my professional development to be both helpful and supportive.”

Martin Duffy

Head of Training – Specsavers (Asia/Pac)


Bev, has been an invaluable mentor and coach in both my professional and personal life. Bev always has your best interest at heart and helps you logically assess your situation, ascertain what you would like to achieve and help you develop ethical and effective steps to take. She has helped me in my darkest times see the light and bought me back to reality when I was reaching some lofty heights. Even when Bev isn’t around she is always present, always available at the end of the phone or for a catch-up, but more so she makes you think, reflect and digest at many occasions thinking “what would Bev say or ask or do”?  Bev comes with a wealth of knowledge and a unique way of helping you learn. Her business approach and level head always make her coaching session balanced and productive. I would be more than happy to promote Bev to anyone who is seeking her guidance and coaching. We are all blessed to have Bev in our lives, and I know many people that are as thankful as me.

My coaching sessions with Bev have always been productive, rejuvenating and inspiring. Bev has worked with me for 18 months and has been supportive and dedicated in helping me make improvements in both my professional and personal life. I have greatly benefited from her wisdom, spirit and generosity. Her approach is inquisitive, nurturing and non-judgemental. I always look forward to my sessions with Bev which give me much needed insight into challenges I am facing and bring joy to my day.

Courtney Green

Chief Financial Officer, Officeworks Ltd – Melbourne


“Bev was an important part of the turnaround story at Officeworks following Wesfarmers acquisition of the business in 2007.  Her ability to work with many of our developing leaders and take them to another level reflected the passion she has for the subject matter.  Bev’s approach was very much one centred on ‘tough love’ – she never let members of the team defer accountability/responsibility/blame to anyone else but she was always prepared to support and nurture them in order to help them achieve their potential.  Ultimately, Bev’s value to our organisation was measured on the leadership return we got from our investment in developing leaders.  To that end, I think Officeworks can feel very well rewarded.”

Michael Howard

Complex Manager Bunnings – Melbourne


“I have had the pleasure to be able to work with Bev since 2005. Bev has a unique ability to make people aware of their full potential with amazing results. I have personally experienced team members with raw talent turned into exceptional leaders through the coaching, development and belief that Bev brings to the team.”

Trevor Bailey

Store General Manager at The Good Guys – Melbourne


I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Bev through her Professional Training Programs at Officeworks. To this day I am in contact with Bev, as she is a professional mentor to me; and is now helping guide me with my pursuit of completing my MBA. Bev is understanding, caring, compassionate and challenges you to ultimately strive & reach your full potential and goals. Bev understands people and that each person is an individual and works to bring that potential out with much success. I will continue to work with Bev now and in future years as I see her as a valuable resource to my personal and professional growth.

Tony Coco

Advisor at CareerSeekers (Sydney)


“I first met Bev in 2010 when she was facilitating a management program for Officeworks. Bev has a unique ability to capture the attention of a room-full of participants she has never met before. She made a conventional leadership program feel tailored to each participant. Bev’s impact on me was significant and I see her as a mentor – so much so that I remain in contact with Bev several years after leaving Officeworks and I have introduced her to my new workplace.”

Ash Nugent

Manager People & Development – DPM Financial Services (Melbourne)


“I have known Bev for over 10 years and have found her to be a fantastic consultant. Bev takes the time out to understand the business she is working for, but more importantly, takes the time to understand the goals and values of that business and ensures that the work she does weaves around those goals and values. I have no hesitation recommending Bev in the Organisational Development and Leadership space”

Tim Guille

HR Manager – Infocus Wealth Management (Queensland)


“I have known Bev Kennedy on a professional level for over 15 years.  During this time she has consulted to a number of businesses’ that I have worked for, designing and delivering leadership and commercially aligned programs and initiatives that have delivered real value to each organisation.   As a facilitator Bev adopts an exploratory and experiential learning methodology which always challenges and stretches participants to move outside their comfort zone.

On a personal level, I have always looked to Bev as a mentor and supporter of my career and life journey.  She has always generously made herself available to discuss any challenges that I have had and found a way to support and guide me to consider my options and make sound decisions.

Bev is an inspirational educator and a truly genuine and kind human being who excels in everything she does.”
