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?
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
Learning lights me up - and should light your learners up too!

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:
Create a plan for your complete user experience which will cater to your client needs, learning styles and expectations.
Organise your content, resources and marketing language into one simple document that will keep you and your content creation on track.
Refine and hone the structure and content of your materials be they workshops, worksheets or online webinars.
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.
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.
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.
Content Development Services
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.
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.
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!

Creating Quality Learning Experiences, and helping others OUT of their overwhelm and into a calm, organised, RELIEVED headspace, is what I LOVE doing.

A personal cheer-squad

Interested, but not quite ready yet?
The Content Creation Quiz takes you through the myriad of different things you need to consider BEFORE you start creating content, so you save yourself time, energy and effort doing things the right way, the first time.
It's just one of many resources I've got for clients like you, in The Library; which is packed full of lessons, tutorials, worksheets and templates designed to solve the problems that my clients have experienced while working through the content creation process with me.
Have great content, but don't have a course yet?
These resources will give you the blueprint to get started!
