Words from our clients
Bravo Careers assisted me with working out exactly what I wanted and needed in my professional life. I was able to articulate exactly what I do in my job, what I want to do and how will I facilitate the changes required. I have now found a work/life balance that has done wonders for both my physical and mental health. I feel much calmer at work and even my family has noticed the changes at home.
IVANKA G – Executive Assistant, National Produce Supplier
I participated in the Director Pathways program, a very positive experience that bore fruit and has given me increased confidence to identify and pursue opportunities. I continue to greatly value Dale’s wisdom as a mentor and advisor.
BERNIE D – Director, Chair, Executive
The services provided to our people was expert in advice and best in class for service. Dale and his team were always available and provided expert support and advice to the employees as well as the organisations leadership. Bravo Careers provides great value to the business and our people highly valued the Bravo team and the program and especially the outcomes for the participants. We will re-engage Bravo in the future.
CARL P – Group Manager, HR and Business Services, Agribusiness
Dale’s coaching style is characterised by integrity, trust and respect for the individual, a clear performance improvement objective (the coaching purpose) and persistence. I benefited enormously from Dale’s coaching as he created an environment of permission to share very honest and often uncomfortable reflections, while always providing a path to improved performance. I unreservedly and enthusiastically recommend Dale as a coach.
MICHAEL G – Non-profit Board Advisor and Member
It is great to have a partner who we view as an extension of our HR team. We know it is not a one size fits all approach, but each individual is treated as such - an individual. It is with ease and comfort that we refer our employees and leaders to Bravo for career counselling and individual coaching as part of our career transitioning services to our employees and leaders.
NICOLETTE B – Head of HR, Multi-national conglomerate, Industrial Manufacturing
I engaged Bravo to provide career planning advice and a pathway for my future following my decision to retire from a 33-year career, the last 14 years as Australian Managing Director of a global market leading manufacturer. Through the many discussions, recommended readings, and the Directors Pathway program which I thoroughly enjoyed doing I developed a comprehensive portfolio of 100 pages of background docs which I am now regularly using as a useful and effective reference base. I always left our meetings feeling challenged but also with a higher level of confidence and a kick in my step. I highly respect and recommend Dale as a coach. There is a unique Greek word "Philotimo" which very well describes his virtue and values.
PETER G – Company Director
Our organisation has achieved a significant shift in its performance over a short period of time, and the Board is pleased to acknowledge the CEO for this. The Board also recognises the CEO was assisted in no small part by the professional development programme provided by Bravo. On behalf of the Board, I am pleased to recommend Dale and Bravo to anyone who may be considering the services they provide.
TERRY R – President and Chair – National Board
What lies at the heart of how Dale and Bravo operate, is their desire to serve. Their approach to adding value to their clients is extraordinary and this is what separates them from other providers. Whilst Dale is engaged to deliver a program or service, he delivers so much more. His uniqueness and ability to recognise what is needed sees him deliver more than what is expected time and time again. I have worked with many organisations, coaches and organisational development consultants over the years, but I have to say that working with Dale and his team at Bravo is truly inspiring and energising.
HELEN L – People and Development Manager, Victorian State Government
My experience working with Dale at Bravo has been nothing short of amazing. Dale's empathy, understanding and bias for achieving results provided incredibly valuable support to me when navigating through a career change. Dale strikes a great balance between career coach and life coach and he has dialed up each focus area at different times during my journey working with him. Dale's wonderful sense of humour has underpinned all of the work we have done together - making the entire process both rewarding and enjoyable.
Dale has supported me throughout my executive career. His advice and encouragement has been invaluable especially during the really difficult pandemic years. He is now guiding me through my "what's next" as I combine executive with a board portfolio. His method of discovery is an unconventional way to develop a CV but it makes you think about yourself, your career to date and in the future and what brings you joy in your life and lets face it, that is what we all want to discover. I feel so grateful I found Dale and value his friendship and guidance. Thank you Bravo Careers.
At a turning point in my working life, Dale helped me achieve a breadth of vision, and valuable grounding and sense of balance, that gave me the confidence, resilience and focus to once again work towards long-held creative goals. Dale’s calm and empathetic support and encouragement, employing a range of career-oriented activities to help me recognise the abilities and strengths I could bring to my future endeavours, have already borne fruit. It’s been a fabulous experience working with Dale and I have already highly recommend Bravo Consulting to a number of close friends.
Having got to a particularly difficult time in my career, I was recommended Dale to work through my next phase. He took time to listen and understand me from a personal and professional perspective and then set about making me think deeply about the whys and the hows. He got me to engage in content that I didn't quite understand why, but it all came together like a well formed story. Dale as a person is one in a million and has helped me navigate the last few years. I am a different person now that when I started, and working with him will be a crucible moment in my career no doubt.
The coaching journey that I have been on with Bravo has made what I can only describe as a profound difference to my life. I couldn’t recommend Dale and the Bravo team any more. I would never hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for careers advice.
Mark Bryant - I have found Dale to be genuine, sincere and decent. Dale sees the bigger picture and works with you in the development plan you seek to enhance your career. When it comes from the heart there is nothing truer. Dale wants the best for his clients and works tirelessly to help you make it happen. I can not recommend Dale and Bravo strongly enough.
Bravo Careers provides a caring, curated and personalised professional service. Bravo values its clients and works hard to ensure we succeed on our own terms. Dale probed my history, challenged my assumptions and engaged me in skilled conversation to clarify my motivation and goals. He also guided me with advice and connections from my professional network. Highly recommended.
The old saying, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear is exactly what happened. I was ready for a different perspective and to be challenged on my old way of thinking.
Dale Simpson is amazing in helping someone develop an understanding of their purpose and he opened my eyes to the possibilities I couldn’t see before, the outcome being an exciting and rewarding career journey.
I googled for someone to help, Bravo Consulting appeared and Dale took me on a journey that has well and truly set me on a positive trajectory.
Thank you Dale.
