Kind words from happy clients
Real clients, real results
I enjoy working face to face with clients across Victoria and southern New South Wales and delivering online business consulting services across Australia.
Transferrable and enduring guidance
I highly commend Sue Gold as a coach and mentor. I’ve been working with Sue for a number of years, as my highly valued “go to” person whenever I’m feeling stuck or unsure of how to deal with various management or business issues. I’ve recently started my own small business, and Sue has been amazing in helping me to refine my ideas and plans. I find Sue’s approach engaging encouraging, and I’m always left feeling empowered at the end of our coaching sessions. Sue’s guidance and advice is enduring and transferrable across many industries.
We have used Sue Gold & Associates on a number of occasions, in particular for tender submissions and facilitation of workshops. Sue’s work is of the highest standard and her ability to turn around submissions within a tight timeframe is second to none. Sue is passionate about what she does and has the ability to apply her skills and combine the knowledge of the organisation to reach a positive outcome. Her patience and professionalism needs to be commended as “nothing is too much trouble”. Since working with Sue I have recommended her to various organisations that have also provided very positive feedback.
I first met Sue in 2013 when I engaged her to support me assess the feasibility of my business idea, then develop a business plan. Since then she has remained my ‘go to’ person for business mentoring, coaching and ‘fresh eyes’. From start up to delivery of services across Australia Sue has supported me all the way. She is great at understanding where I am on my business journey, challenging me to deal with the tricky bits and sharing information in a way that makes sense. She has kept me on track, taking me through processes and setting up systems that I didn’t know I needed but now couldn’t be without. I have recommended Sue to other small business owners and will continue to do so.
Sue Gold is a friendly, knowledgeable and approachable person and a true subject matter expert when it comes to consulting in the areas of small business. She stands out from other advisors/mentors with her demonstrated ability to listen, problem solve and help provide answers and direction. Sue is very thought provoking and has an amazing ability to uncover the hidden issues and help define and achieve goals. She is very passionate about her work and has a vast professional network to draw upon. I highly recommend her as a trustworthy and committed professional, whom I am certain would go above and beyond to help her clients.
We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Sue throughout the process of developing our business plan. Sue was able to gather quite quickly what our vision was and where we wanted to take our business. Sue acknowledged both our strengths and weaknesses which helped us to work out what our roles and responsibilities were in our business. Her method was both gentle and assertive and we were able to work effectively to our timelines. We are now enjoying working in our business and are guided by our plan and Sue’s ongoing support and feedback.
Sue Gold provided invaluable business advice after I had been in my own business for 12 months. Sue was able to help me consolidate an appropriate pricing structure, set up a budget and discuss strategies for marketing. Sue’s knowledge of other relevant businesses in this industry was amazing and the direction, advice and confidence has allowed me to meet my goals easily in my second year of business. I don’t hesitate to refer other business people who are looking for business advice to Sue Gold. Sue is a great sounding board in times of doubt and can reassure or steer you in the direction to help you achieve your goals. Sue is worth her weight in gold when it comes to business mentoring and advice.
As Business Development Manager, I found Sue’s approach to be highly professional, intelligent, with an ability to identify and clarify our needs.
Clear and comprehensive consultation has been consistent in all dealings with Sue, this has extended to all stakeholders in whatever project she has undertaken.
Thorough research and topic relevance are cornerstones that underpin Sue Gold’s approach, this has proven to be a huge asset to the projects we have commissioned Sue to develop and deliver.
The professional mentoring by Sue Gold & Associates provides a valuable and constructive sounding board for those looking to identify and fulfil professional development goals. Sue’s positive approach quickly builds mutual trust and respect and she challenges her participants whilst willingly sharing her expertise, experiences and insights.
The Alpine Independent Aged Care Advocacy Service Inc came into being through the Community and Health Advisory Group, seeing a need for advocacy in Alpine Health facilities. In 2012 Sue Gold & Associates were employed to co-facilitate a training program for the committee and advocates. The training program was one day a week for six weeks, with ongoing monthly professional development for advocates. Through the training course we developed a Working Manual that is of great value, full of strategies and resources for our use. Sue Gold was very competent in her approach. Very well prepared. She was able to summarise each session with amazing accuracy. She showed empathy and integrity, was very approachable and available. Sue Gold was always professional. The Alpine Independent Aged Care Advocacy Service Inc have and will continue to work with Sue Gold & Associates.
In her work for The Centre, Sue brought a comprehensive understanding of the VET sector, a unique ability to identify and clarify our needs and a highly intelligent and professional approach to assisting us to develop solutions.
Sue exhibits capacities that go way beyond her qualifications and subject knowledge; she has demonstrated a sound capacity to bring eclectic groups of people together to form valuable, productive teams, with meaningful and measurable outcomes.
