Testimonials

“Dear Odile,

You have directed me ever so carefully with your insight to gauge and then focus on where I am now and where I would like to be on every facet of my life journey.

With a mutual understanding to challenge my thinking and your professional guidance, you have identified my strengths and weaknesses for personal growth.

Odile, you have helped me achieve all of this and more, as it has brought about self-recognition, internal happiness and self worth.

Thank you for sharing your inspiration.”

Sandra, Senior Project Officer, Southbank TAFE, Brisbane, Australia 
“Odile has, over a period of several months, assisted me to clearly identify my goals and directions. I now have an action plan, measurable performance indicators and constant reminders to focus on my goals. This has motivated me to the point where I am now holding myself accountable for my actions and progress.

In real terms, in the few short months I have been fortunate enough to have Odile’s assistance, I have taken a business, which was barely ticking over, to doubling its number of clients and tripling the number of client enquiries. All of which was achieved through my own better focus and without additional advertising or cost.

Thank you Odile for all that you have done for me. I am eternally grateful.”

Garry, Director, IT Company, Gold Coast, Australia

“Odile HBH Williams was the coach I was glad I had! She is committed, insightful and incredibly generous and supportive.

As a coach myself, I feel comfortable evaluating Odile at two levels: her skills as a coaching practitioner as well as her impact on me as my coach. I rate her very highly in both these areas.

During our three-month coaching series Odile helped me gain significant personal insights. Odile created a very safe space for me to explore and review/upgrade my beliefs, strategies and opportunities to successfully live my values in all aspects of my life. Our coaching relationship led to significant changes in my life – changes I know I would not have carried through on my own.

I found Odile to have integrity, not afraid to challenge me, very open and expressive. She displayed a deep commitment to my coaching success. Odile was quietly persistent and held me in a powerful space of accountability.

She is a great role model in the sense that she models and lives her coaching principles. I have already recommended her coaching services.”

“Through Odile’s techniques, my husband and I determined that we did in fact have common goals. I found Odile’s work very through and beneficial to my growth, both personally and professionally.”

Personal Interests

I currently share my time between my family – husband Jeremy and 2 children – Jasmine 7 and Xavier 4 and building my successful coaching and facilitation business. I am passionate about anything to do with personal development and leadership and read, watch and listen to anything which may come across my path on these subjects.

I also love cooking, baking and having friends around for parties. Our always popular meals include the “Raclette” – a very convivial meal where people cook around the table and eat Cheese and grilled food. Having grown up in Bordeaux – France, I love my wine and my good food!

Achievements

One of my key achievements includes the successful launch and running of 2 MBA programs delivered exclusively via the internet. This was made possible through consultation, coordination and relationship management with the various stakeholders: students and tutors based all over the world, academic staff in Hong Kong and in the UK.

I also designed and facilitated online inductions for new students, tutors and university staff. My combined project management and people skills were critical in my management of the multimillion dollar PR project for Moet Hennessy (part of the LVMH luxury Group) in 7 Asian countries; the organisation and management of a Graduation Ceremony for over 1000 University Graduates and guests; and the development and launch of a pioneer e-learning platform.

A middle management executive had engaged me as her coach prior to a major reorganization in the leading food services company where she was working. Our coaching enabled her to remain calm and positive when facing her possible redundancy. She immediately started looking for new career opportunities and received 3 job offers within 2 weeks. Her new position has better prospects, together with a 55% increase in salary.

A senior executive came to me with a dream: to start a consultancy business. However, decades of full time, salaried work had created a sense of security and the fear of the unknown had prevented the client from taking action. During our coaching relationship, my client took a leave of absence from the high profile and well paid job to actually start the consultancy business. After 6 months, this business has now achieved a level of profit which has enabled the executive to resign from the position and enjoy the personally rewarding work and life balance that they had always yearned for.
