“The course was really well-paced and the trainer, Anne-Marie, approached the topics sensitively and with reminders to look after ourselves, and to take down-time if we needed. She created a really safe, non-judgemental learning space.

“We met with Felicity from Oyster Outcomes at a pivotal time in our business journey. Our business was rapidly growing, but we needed some clear guidance about our future.

Felicity is organised, helpful and incredibly professional. She took the time to listen to our views and made careful suggestions to help our business continue to run smoothly as it expands.

Felicity is full of ideas that can help with business growth and success. It was so helpful to have her advice and confirm with her that our fundamental policies and procedures were sound and rigid enough to support us through expansion.

As a business, we really couldn’t rate Oyster Outcomes more highly. We would really recommend them to any business no matter how big or small! Felicity is an experienced professional who is incredibly lovely to work with.

Thank you so much for helping our business continue to grow!’

“I am coming up to the end of a very successful first year in business and had lots of ideas buzzing around my head and wasn’t quite sure where to go next.

I had a 90 min session with Felicity which was helpful in simplifying my focus. Felicity asked me some questions about what I want to achieve short term and longer term. We talked about the difference between working on my business and working in my business.

I now have a clear plan with a laser focus as to what I needed to do next to achieve my short term goals. Deciding to park some of the other ideas for now knowing I can come back to them when the time feels right has freed me up and helped me move from a place of overwhelm to action.”
