Wendy Marman

There is no greater joy for me than seeing someone break free, grow and become all they were designed to be … to break free from limiting ideas, beliefs and habits. Grow to new levels of thinking, action and results! That is my passions and purpose.

Want to grow your business? – Grow you! Want to influence a new level of client or leader? – Grow to be that person required to achieve it. Want your team to perform at a new level? Empower them to grow! Want to move to new heights? – Grow your vision and your ability to cast a vision.

I love the words of Denis Waitley, “Personal development is the belief that you are worth the effort, time and energy needed to develop yourself.” I really believe you are! Do you?

I’ve always been adventurous and seek to live life to the full. After initial study including 2 degrees and post graduate courses, over 20 years ago I took a look in the mirror and said yes to myself. Yes, I would commit to lifelong learning. Yes, I would pursue my personal growth to create a better future for me and for my family. I took growth to another level 5 years ago and have been helping others create their future ever since!

What future do you want to create? Do you desire to be a 10 but constantly perform as a 5? People are never able to outperform their self image. The good news is you can add value to yourself Say YES to yourself today!

I offer a unique blend of business, systems, scientific, philosophical, human behavioural, leadership and sales training. My 35 year career combining international speaking, teaching, mentoring, problem solving, change leadership and strategic planning across 4 continents and  a multiplicity of cultures allows me to recognise, analyse and draw together diverse and disparate elements to create new thinking and new growth for my clients.

I have worked with government, large multi-nationals, small-medium businesses, educational institutions and Not For Profit organizations in a wide variety of positions delivering transformational training, coaching and mentoring grounded in experience, not just theory.  As co-founder and co-director of Seaphoenix Pty Ltd, I have developed and delivered face-to-face and virtual courses which have seen businesses add significant growth to their bottom line and individuals overcome personal barriers to achieve advancement and relationship enrichment. My clients continually speak of the clarity, direction and transformation experienced. My commitment to integrity, excellence and a can-do attitude means ‘Where there is a strong WHY, there is always a WAY.’

Wendy lives what she teaches. This is transformational teaching and training at is best because Wendy has been where she takes you and she leads with character and integrity.She has worked with our organisation and contributed to the growth of our organisation and the individuals with in it over a number of years. Her versatility has seen her made a difference and inspired and equipped our people to reach their potential in a variety of ways. This has included workshops, one on one assessments, coaching and mentoring and small groups training. Highlights for our team was an activity Wendy led in which over 100 of our Australia wide team participated, learning about understanding and leading ourselves and others at our annual conference and a facilitated leadership and planning workshop for our leadership team using the John Maxwell Leadership Game.  

Given the importance of building individual and workforce capability, Wendy continues to work personally with members of my organisation in areas of leadership development and personal growth.

CEO, Australian Institute of Family Counselling

As a busy entrepreneur, wife and mum and running the daily activities of my business is a full-time undertaking. There is little time available to focus on growth and development – key components of a successful business. I realised I needed help when my lists were getting longer, I had little belief in my self, most of my work time was spent feeling overwhelmed. When I signed up with Wendy, I instantly felt like she understood what I was going through. Wendy has been instrumental in helping me move forward. She’s given me the skill set to prioritise and accomplish tasks, as well as set reasonable deadlines. But most important to believe in me.

It’s a series of small achievable steps but when I look back I realise that since we started working together, I’ve come a long way. It has been a life changing experience for me. The leadership sessions consistently provide fresh opportunities, to become clearly aware of where I am, where I really want to go and most importantly, what I need to do to get there. Once the way is clear, Wendy leadership course provides a gentle but effective accountability mechanism to keep me on the path that I have chosen. In just a few months, I’ve seen the belief in me shine through again and my overall personal and professional life satisfaction grow by leaps and bounds.

I have had the privilege of working with Wendy for the past 3.5 years through many her programs. As a career, driven women for over 18 years and then becoming a mum, I felt lost with who “I” was. I was honoured to be mentored by Wendy to find my passion and follow my dream. These programs have truly changed my life and my family to give us a new direction and believe in what we really want out of life.

I am grateful to have Wendy in my life.
