We challenge and encourage you to develop a leadership style and business culture that builds both results and relationships.

Brightlife was founded in 2006 with a simple mission: to improve people’s experience of being at work. We’ve experienced radical expansion and global success because of the core values that inform our culture and approach.

We believe that people and organisations deliver exceptional results when three factors are in place:

• a clear purpose that is meaningful and shared
• leadership to make it happen, and
• communication that builds connection and authenticity.

Today, we challenge, encourage and coach our clients to bring these 3 factors to life in their own organisations and experience the difference to their people and their results.

We are a community of consultants with industry-leading knowledge and a track record of delivering results.

We are a diverse community of independent consultants who enjoy working together to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients. Together we bring industry-leading knowledge and skills, a broad range of experiences and expertise, and a track record of delivering results. Most importantly, we really care about our clients and helping them achieve their desired outcomes.

Our clients

  • "It’s like “time out” meeting and phoning you. I love the upbeat tempo, your focus, and the pace is great. I find our sessions refreshing and there is always something I take away from our conversations and give a try. Thanks for your help and support."

    Pauline Lamb, COO, Airways New Zealand
  • After working with Brightlife the difference in my career and personal life is amazing. We explore solutions to the real challenges I face in the workplace and I’ve noticed a step change in my own focus and motivation. Others have commented on my changed behaviours and performance, enabling me to be considered for new roles and opportunities."

    Simon Nurrish Executive Director, JPMorganChase
  • "My coach operates from a place of integrity, living her core values and beliefs, and was able to help me shift my understanding and perspective as I transition to a new career that is much more closely aligned with my own values. I am happier and more effective in my new role. The work we've done has been energising and calming, subtle and dramatic, fun and affirming."

    Sue Beddow - Vice President in global IT company
  • "I wanted to improve my Executive Presence and quick. I reached out to Brightlife, as they already coach our senior executives and come highly recommended. My coach got to the heart of my issues very quickly, coached me to uncover my limiting beliefs and gave me powerful strategies to achieve my goals. I am now extremely confident around Executives."

    Jay Sriskanthan, L&D Consultant, Cisco
  • “Working with Brightlife has been the single best use of coaching time I've encountered in my extensive experience of senior executive coaching.

My coach provided practical support and we worked together to understand how I can optimise my potential for maximum results."

    Kyle Whitehill, CEO, Vodafone Qatar
