What some had to say ...

As a Leader in different spheres of influence in society, I count myself privileged to have been mentored and coached by Paula Brown.

Her passion to see people, communities, businesses and organizations rise to their potential and destiny is undeniable. She’s equipped naturally and professionally with the ability draw out and build true greatness in others. Her zest for life, fun way of doing things, patience and ability to listen with all senses is an added bonus.

You cannot participate in this coaching process and remain the same.

Vuyokazi Matu – Chief Executive Officer

I experienced a rather gentle process of awakening that resulted in a resounding reminder to, just occasionally, stop! Stop doing. Stop fixing. Stop my usual over-zealous, hyper efficient, frantic, demanding drive to get-an-inordinate-amount-done-in-order-to-feel-useful state of being and to instead just be with my thoughts and feelings every so often to take stock and readjust as necessary to refocus on what’s important. This workshop did just that.

  • My take-outs that now have pride of place in my 2021 diary:
  • Don’t give up before you’ve begun!
  • Don’t let fear of failure hold you back! Take a chance!
    Or, in my words…
  • Carpe F-ing Diem! Or, the PG version…. Just seize the damn day!

Alison Evans – Creative Strategist / Writer

The vision workshop allowed me to gain clarity on what I wanted to achieve this year. I realised that I am a visual learner and respond better to goals that I can “see” with a clear mental picture.

I walked in there not knowing what to expect and ended up seeing myself from an objective viewpoint, as if I had just met myself and could draw conclusions about that person. I left feeling grounded having found clarity around what’s important to me and clear direction for the future.

Lyndon S – Photographer | Videographer and Digital Influencer

Not knowing what to expect I was excited and slightly nervous. To my surprise we tackled some difficult subjects in a safe space with honesty and clarity. This is often not easy, one on one, and more so in a group environment.

I learned so much about myself, the areas that I need to work on, what truly makes me happy and how this all fits into my vision. Thank you Paula, for gently pushing me in this direction and for the great reading material suggestions.

Dion Martin – Business Owner

I’ve never taken a day off to focus on myself. Needless to say, I was resistant and impatient. It turned out to be a brilliant process ending with me, your proverbial Type-A male who’d rather be on the golf course or in the office any day, fully immersing myself into the process. I even discovered a new language, using words like curiosity, awareness, non-judgement and limiting beliefs. I wanted it to be interesting and it was. I’m also pretty proud of my vision board. Thanks Paula. Great Job.

Paul de Waal – Senior Wealth Specialist

I needed clarity and direction. I left the workshop feeling lighter and clear on a number of big decisions I’ve been afraid to make. I know where I want to be right now and looking forward to what the future holds. It’s my first vision board and I look forward to living the dream.

Wilna van Schalkwyk – Television & Broadcast Specialist

I was anxious about a workshop that offered “letting go” as one of its selling points. Letting go amongst a group of strangers or in my case, including a friend, did not appeal. Paula however, put my mind at ease when, at the outset, she created what she referred to as a container for us to work in. One that promised absolute confidentiality, honesty and safety. (A bit like that old Vegas saying but deeper!) This along with a breathing exercise amazingly created a warm connection between the participants.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun I had despite the stuff that came up. It seems we all have that stuff. Paula managed to hold it (us) all together very naturally and professionally . The process was great and I’m proud of my Vision board, it is authentically mine and comes with full commitment to achieving all that is on it.
