Written Testimonials

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” -Colin Powell, Former U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff


Peter Ryder – Rapid Hydraulics & Pneumatics

Working with Phil is like having that business mentor that I have sought after as long as I have been in business.  Up until now, I have been totally self taught on how to run a business.  Phil has showed us how to put systems in place, which will not only make the business easier to run, but adds value to the business as a more attractive potential for investors to buy.  I would recommend business coaching to everyone in small business as an essential ingredient to running a successful business that works for you.

Bruce McQuade – Blaze Displays

I established Blaze Displays 11 years ago.  Business has been ‘OK’, but really all I owned was a job.  Since meeting Phil, business has turned 180 degrees and we are on track for recording another record profit.  Phil has taught me more about business in a few months that I had learnt in my whole life.  I guess you could say the fire has been reignited.  I now have a clear vision and direction of where I would like to be, both in business and my personal life.  Better yet, I have a realistic and workable action plan to get me there.

Renae Pitargue – First Class Accounts & First Class Capital

Phil has provided the focus and accountability I needed to take my First Class Accounts business to the next level.  It really has been a case of ‘believe and you will achieve’.  From the day I started with Phil in October 2015 to date, the business growth has been exceptional.  Phil is like having a contract CEO for the business that allows, and ensures, we plan for the future but also reflect on the numbers achieved.

Peter Taylor – RMR Engineering

When we purchased RMR Engineering, we recognised in the early days that we needed to diversify and grow the business and to achieve this we would need to learn some new and important skills to ensure the sustainable success of RMR Engineering.  Once we commenced working with Phil Badura of Action Coaching and using these new skills and implementing the strategies, systems and procedures, we subsequently experienced a consistent level of growth beyond our expectations.  We have achieved more under the guidance of Phil in the last 2-years than we would have in more than 5-years if we had tried to do it on our own.  The results to date have reaffirmed our belief that working with the right business coach and mentor is crucial to the ongoing success of any company and we would therefore have no hesitations in recommending Phil Badura and the Action Coaching process to any entrepreneur and business!

Carolyn and Brian Schulz – Saltfree Desalination Australia Pty Ltd

Phil has been instrumental in helping us to keep a positive mindset and build our resilience.   He has taught us how to look at our business from above and become more confident in approaching things that we were finding challenging.   Phil is a great listener and it was obvious from the first time we met him that he is sincere and committed in doing the very best so that both our personal and business goals can be reached.  Phil is knowledgeable, committed, professional, and caring.
