Small Business Professionals

Great content stuck in your head and hard drives?

You're here because you're a small business professional with content that you know changes lives. You also know it's time to leverage all that expertise and create learning products that can be used to create a recurring income.

There are ways I can help get that content out to the people who need it, in the most efficient, effective way; helping you get it right the first time, creating products and services you're proud of and will have you referred to as the go-to-expert in your niche.

Need a specialist in adult education and training?

I've been in the industry for 20 years, am Masters qualified, have worked in 10 countries and had 13 overseas postings involving teaching, teacher training and curriculum development - for both online and offline learning materials. I've worked for schools, universities, vocational colleges, small businesses, and government departments, but the one thing that has never changed is my passion for learning, and helping professionals create quality learning experience that create real change in the lives of their learners.

I'd bet my bottom dollar, that you...

have a system that works wonders with your clients but... you have all that great content stuck in your head and hard-drives.

You KNOW that it's time to uplevel; that filling your time with 1 to 1 sessions is a sure road to burn out and there's a fair chance you're headed that way.

I hear you. I've been there. There's a simple alternative and I'm here to help.

♦ Ready to extract all that juicy knowledge from your 1 on 1 sessions, to create resources that will support clients when you're not there to help them personally?

♦ Want to identify the most compelling opt in to kick start a campaign for an existing course?

♦ Ready to finally leverage your time and create a course, workshop or a solid set of flexible learning resources?

♦ Know you need a process to follow so it's done right the first time, and don't want to waste time or energy needlessly?

♦ Want the confidence to stand behind your product, knowing it's well structured and will deliver on its promises?

Let me help.

Consider this your official permission to stop hitting your head against a brick wall and to finally let your content shine.

I get it - that sometimes passion just isn't enough, that you've got so many ideas, and are so keen to get it all out there but organising it into a cohesive whole and making sure it's an experience that will leave your clients raving about you, isn't as easy as it sounds. You've tried. You're overwhelmed, you're a bit frustrated, and you're losing love for the work you're passionate about - and that's just not right. 

You love what you do, you consider yourself a professional, but you're not a systems freak and you need someone on board to show you the right way - the first time, instead of blundering around in the dark trying to do it yourself. You love your content, and you just want it to WORK. You need to employ a brain that can do all that side of things for you, or at least show you how to do it so you're not wasting time, money and energy on something that is simply not in your zone of genius.

I get it. I've been there. I'm running a small business. You can't do everything yourself, but you CAN employ people who are much better than you at the things you can't stand doing. Right?

That's where I come in.

If you're lost in the wilderness of Course Design, Content Creation or Materials Development, I can help. That's what Curriculum Developers do.

I help small business professionals design, develop and deliver:

  • Course outlines, content overviews and the marketing language required for sales pages,
  • Learning materials like presentations, video tutorials, worksheets, hand books and facilitator guides,
  • Assessments, practical tasks  & evaluations

I have developed a range of Signature Workshops that can help; each have corresponding online courses which you will receive as part of the workshop, so that you can do the learning BEFORE you come to the workshop to get your specific questions answered.

These workshops have been successfully delivered with very positive feedback at the following co-working spaces:

  • BubDesk, Joodalup, AUSTRALIA
  • BubDesk, Perth, AUSTRALIA
  • Hubud, Bali, INDONESIA
  • Spacecubed, Perth, AUSTRALIA
  • Take Flight Series, Perth, AUSTRALIA
  • Virtual Legal, Brisbane, AUSTRALIA

I have spoken about the PURE GENIUS of Maria Doyle before ... but I am doing it again. SERIOUSLY ... check her out if you are building your programs and courses. She is a NINJA at ensuring there are clear student outcomes and learning achieved.

I have spent the last 2 weeks practically every day writing content, brainstorming ideas, getting honest feedback with her. EPIC. This is an awesome program that is now AWESOME!!! ... and already sold to some major corporates.

If you nail your structure and your students learn and achieve what you desire ... they will be your biggest raving fans and promote you ...

PS. I don't profit or receive and monies for this ... am just a raving fan who has smashed out some incredible content and a maaaaajor project and Maria has been legendary at helping me upgrade. I have been training and speaking for years and she has seriously blown my mind with some of the tweaks and upgrades.

I am all about sharing the love and helping other people achieve outstanding results with awesome support and the right team.

If you've already got course content but it's not quite there...

More and more, I'm working with clients who have a tired workshop or range content that has been adapted and changed over the years, but never really pulled into a succinct, marketable product. We take a good look at what they already have, and then design a product or suite of products that will help them leverage their time, and get their knowledge online.

Does this sound like what you need?

I'm currently helping a number of small businesses develop a tired, face to face workshop, into new restructured products: an online self study, blended learning format (online course materials with community support and weekly coaching calls), and the completely revamped face to face workshop materials including presentations, learner workbooks, supplementary reading materials and facilitator guides.

If you're looking for a workshop for your team or small business network, I have a range of workshops that cover these areas. In the Sample Sessions below, you'll find detailed explanations of what we can get achieved in a 2 hour session  -  but in short, here's an overview.

We can work together to:

  • CONNECT

    Create a plan for your complete user experience which will cater to your client needs, learning styles and expectations. 

  • CREATE

    Organise your content, resources and marketing language into one simple document that will keep you and your content creation on track.

  • COMMUNICATE

    Refine and hone the structure and content of your materials be they workshops, worksheets or online webinars. 

  • CRITIQUE

    Design a comprehensive set of evaluation materials and the review mechanisms to ensure your content gets better every time you deliver it.

What that means, is that you can...

◊  hand all the organising and systemising over  to someone who (nerd alert!) loves doing that stuff and know that it's going to come back as a cohesive learning experience that produces raving clients.

◊  stop second guessing yourself and stressing out about what you should be doing next and start focusing on creating awesome content (which you're best at doing anyway).

◊  start falling back in love with what you do - the content, how it can change lives, and getting that message out there to the people who need it the most. 

Let me introduce a client I have recently worked with.

Nikki went on to pilot, review and completely revamp her program whilst working with me in one of my 8 hour coaching bundles.

Nikki Smith

I’ve recently converted my 1 on 1 career change coaching program to a home study online course. Who would have thought creating an online course would be such a roller coaster?

In the beginning I had some concerns and wanted to ensure that the online course participants get the best results possible. So, I had a 2 hour strategy session with Maria. I went from feeling excited but overwhelmed to clear and confident.

Maria gave me a structure to follow that minimised all the second guessing. Her marketing and content structure document helped me to realise that I had under-estimated the power of what I was creating. She helped me to identify deep and useful outcomes beyond what I had identified myself. Plus, Maria shared her wisdom of what to do and what not to do to ensure engagement.

I highly recommend Maria and know that the return on investment is guaranteed.

Now this testimonial made me giggle-snort.

If you're adverse to giggle snorting, skim over this paragraph. A client once told me that working with me was like getting your legs waxed for the first time. You know you want to do it, but you put it off and put it off because you know it's gonna hurt, and while you're doing it, it's intense and hurts like hell but when you come out the other side and the feeling is SOO good, you wonder why on God's green earth you didn't do it years ago. Ha!

Getting an idea of what it's like to work with me yet?

How does it work?

Since my mission is for every training program to be made more effective by using effective materials that really strike a chord with your learners, so that they’re engaged, motivated and ready to come back for more, my sessions are tailored to your specific needs.

Every client is different so we'll work out a program that is going to work for YOU - your timeframes, your budget, your commitment to nailing your course content - we'll work together to get it done efficiently, and right, the first time.

I don't believe in locking people into a 6 month package, with non negotiable appointment times, worth thousands of dollars.

Why?

Because I've had that done to me and you know what?

It's not fair.

Sometimes you really do just need a few hours of help,
sometimes you need serious accountability, and
other times you need space and time to get stuff done - on your own terms.

I get it.

That's why I have a range of packages to suit different learning styles, budgets, commitment levels, and deadlines.

Another client, who started with the online courses then upgraded to a coaching bundle.

We are now working on not just her presentations, but the full suite of learning materials that are going to make up her educational sequence, 20 Step Bookkeeping Freedom Challenge, and online learning material bank for her book keeping clients.

I have been working with Maria on a presentation for workshops I will be running. Her course has taught me how to structure my presentation and deliver it in an engaging and interactive way so that I know my audience have participated in, and not just slept through, my workshop.

I love that I have check lists for delivery techniques and visual aids so that I can refer to and duplicate the same professional standard for my next presentation.

I finally bit the bullet and signed up for the full VIP course and in one week I have been blown away with the progress I have made towards systemising my knowledge and content in order to turn it into a series of help videos/blogs. If you want professional results, you need to talk to a professional!

Maria is energetic and genuine and makes the learning process fun.

COURSE REVIEW

If you have an existing course that’s not reaching the mark, or you know it could be a lot better than it currently is, you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed by the process of getting stuck into a full review and revamp. I hear you. I've been there, and a Course Review might help. Check out the details here.

PRODUCT, CURRICULUM AND RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT

For those who need a job done quickly, education and training advice, learning  materials design and creation, training plan proposals or for those who want accountability and support to get the job done right, the first time, and don't want to go it alone, I have a few levels of support I can provide.

Library Homepage

If you just need a little help to get you started...

I have a 2 hour Session + Library Bundle which will give you instant access to all the Courses in my online Resource Library. These courses were created to help small business professionals create quality learning content and to get it online.

 

There is a free Content Creation Quiz which will pinpoint exactly the areas that I can help you with, and show you the courses in the Library that may also be able to help. Book in for a quick 15 minute chat first, do the courses you need, take the recommended actions, then book in for your session and get your questions answered. Simple!

If you know you're going to need more support...

I work in 8 and 40 hour bundles, because this type of work is different for every client. Some need a half day session straight up, others need fortnightly 2 hour meetings to review progress on their materials. We work to the beat of your drum, within the framework that suits your project. Book in for a 15 minute discovery call here, so that we can work out whether we're the right fit for the work that you've got planned. If you're REALLY looking to invest in your business, you may also be interested in my BUSINESS ACCELERATOR program with Ellen Ercolini.

Amelia started working with me to ensure that her online course was up to scratch. 

We have since worked on her key note presentations, workshops from which she up sells into her signature programs, and a number of commissioned presentations she has developed for her key target audiences in the renovation and housing industries.

Maria! Just wanted to let you know how the workshop went ... IT WAS AWESOME!!!! ..... They took notes! They asked questions! They talked to me and each other! They gathered together in the morning tea break and chatted to each other about their projects! They all thanked me individually as they left. Then they posted a string of amazing testimonials for me on social media and the website ...  Woooohoooo!!!  So now, of course, my brain is exploding with 'what's next'.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you .... just so glad I did this with you - it seriously made all the difference. To the content, to the benefit they got, to how I felt. The one thing I really felt from the workshop was just how amazing the interaction was....  I was blown away by how well the techniques and strategies you'd taught me worked, how much better and more confident it made me at delivering the workshop - and how much it improved attendee experience. I also love the butt kicks you gave me a long the way, and how our time together helped keep me accountable to creating this workshop methodically and intentionally (rather than last minute and in a panic!) Love your work!

Inspired? Listen to her success story, here. (Yep, she's working with celebrities now!)

On working with me overall, Amelia had this to say: 

"Working with Maria gave me a focussed, supportive accountability framework, and overhauled both my online course, and created the in-person workshop related to it. To get that perspective, and insight to create the content for my workshop, totally simplified preparing for it. What would ordinarily be a ridiculously nerve-wracking experience for me to prepare for my first workshop, became a planned, methodical and accountable way of extracting the best of me and my content, into a massively useful presentation. And on the day, that meant I only had to focus on delivering it - no second guessing what I was presenting at all. The workshop has received brilliant feedback and is a great conversion tool for my business. Maria's work in reviewing my online program has also totally next-levelled it. I'm just about to implement all of our changes, and can't wait to see the amazing results it gets because I know my members are going to LOVE it.
 
All in all, these two women (Maria and Ellen Ercolini) have been an integral part of my team this year, and helped me, and my business, keep going from strength to strength. Can't recommend them highly enough." Read more about the Business Accelerator Ellen and I have, here.

Wondering what actually happens in a session?

Below are some sample sessions to show you what is possible in a 2 hour timeframe. No, I don't have a formula that applies to every client I work with, and it's certainly not a cooker cutter approach to content development. Every client is different, as is every session. 

Let me know which ones you're interested in when you book in for your  chat, or we can create a bespoke session that will cater to exactly what you need. All sessions are tailored to your specific content, curriculum and resource development needs. Expand the boxes to reveal more details on what is included in each session.

Why would I need a 40 hour Coaching Intensive?

Well, you get the best of both worlds. Not only do you get dedicated one on one time, to nail an Individual Project Plan (what you're going to achieve in the 6-10 weeks we'll be working together), you'll also get the opportunity to have your content reviewed, piloted, edited or completely outsourced for you - if you'd prefer not to DIY the entire process yourself!

The content creation journey can be a long, hard, solitary place of confusion, overwhelm and to do lists that never get done.

There's a certain collective power however, a collective energy if you will, that is gathered when a group of people are working together on something - we all know how important it is to be supported when you're going out on a limb and nailing something you've been wanting to achieve for a long time.

It doesn't have to be hard, confusing and lonely - do it with  a curriculum developer and teacher trainer who has 15 years experience creating learning experiences that change people's lives; whether it's a course, series of workshops, online or offline projects, I've worked with colleges, universities, passionate professionals and organisations. You don't have to make all the same mistakes they have - do it with someone who can help you navigate the unpredictable world that is quality content development, and come out celebrating a product that you KNOW is going to change lives!

What's it like to work with me?

Well, I call a spade a shovel and I'm not into fluffing around or telling you what you want to hear. I am good at listening though, and will help YOU create the experience YOU want - not what I THINK you should have. Your circus, your monkeys.

I focus on results, not deadlines, and know that life comes and goes and things don't always go to plan. Most importantly, meltdowns are fine, direction changes are welcomed, and my job is done when YOU'RE happy and confident to keep working on your own.

Maria, thank you! Working with you has been so much fun and so productive! 
 
The way your brain can take complex information (also known as the 20 years of theory and experience in my head!) and turn it into a structure that makes total sense, is phenomenal. That you can then turn this into a visual blows my mind! Oh and you did this in what, three sessions? Amazing! 
 
Through what you’ve taught me, I’ve been able to nail a structure for my coaching practice and the online programs I’m creating. I feel incredibly confident now that I’ll be able to share my knowledge and experience in a way that will truly inspire and help others. 
 
Thank you, with all of my heart! You are brilliant and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to do the 4 PILLARS e-Course and work one-to-one with you.
