Welcome! I’m Peta and as the Head Career Coach and Trainer, I partner with professionals who wish to become more resilient, productive and paid!

I am so passionate about guiding others to their career and leadership possibilities, I founded Better is Best in 2012 to coach and train others to be their best selves and get paid for it’.  

I have over 14 years experience leading strategies across programs, people, processes, products and services, from global organisations such as Thomson Reuters and SAI Global right through to small businesses.

Successful in my numerous roles and piloting four career changes across three countries, I have the practical expertise as well as coaching and training qualifications. 

I am a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner and a Certified Practitioner of Deep State Re-Patterning ™.  I also have a Cert IV in Training and Assessment and a slew of other qualifications including a law degree!

Furthermore, I access similarly talented Associates from our partner network, to deliver Better is Best programs and projects. 

I very proudly eat my own cat food. I have my own Executive Coach and continually learn new strategies and techniques to better serve my clients.  I have a number of real life mentors, though my all time favourite is Wonder Woman, as ‘all the world is waiting for you and the power you possess….’.

Hi! I’m Maggie and I am a Consultant here at Better is Best. 

I help people, just like you, attain the jobs and careers you desire.  

With over 20 years experience in senior and management roles, both in the private and public sectors (private sector experience in financial and business management and public sector experience in corporate services), my approach is  ‘be the change you wish to see in the world’ – Gandhi.

I’m a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner, a Certified Practitioner of TCI’s Deep State Re-Patterning ™ and a Trainer and Assessor.

My specialty area is “Workplace Grief”, helping people ‘heal hearts’, recover and rebuild after experiencing a loss. This may include losing a job, skill, ability, staff, a loved one or colleague.

To that end I have studied overseas and gained certification as a Grief Edu-Therapy™ specialist and I’m a qualified Lifeline Telephone Counsellor.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to be the change (and get paid for it!).
