Gaelene Adams Wood
Founder of Team Fusion International, PEOPLE expert

With more than 25 years’ experience working with SME’s, corporates and government agencies Gaelene is an accomplished author, an authority on team building and personality profiling, business mentor and coach to award winning businesses. 

In the modern business landscape, a good team is considered critical currency and coined by many experts as “your most valuable asset in a business” but rarely can we identify why and how we capitalise on this.

As an authority on team building Gaelene will help you to understand both your team’s personalities and how to harness this insight towards optimal performance. She can even improve your recruitment process by defining key attributes of future candidates to ensure you have the right person and a good cultural fit.

Colin Kennedy
Owner of Iron Road PR Agency, PERCEPTION creator

Colin is a PR genius, known for his eloquence and insights. PR isn’t something we think about a lot as small and medium-sized businesses, but that doesn’t mean we can’t utilise it in a world where everyone is given the opportunity to be their own media channel.

The Iron Road Philosophy is based on the idea that stories move hearts and minds.

People connect with people better through stories. Ultimately, every buying decision is an emotional decision — win the heart and the mind will follow. There is no more powerful way to touch the heart through storytelling.

Discover how traditional media can support your message.
