“Living on Purpose is about building relevance and joy into your life. To savor what has been given to you and share it with your family, friends, community and the world.” Hank and Nicole

Experts on: Speakers, authors, trainers/facilitators, coaching, assessments

Hank and Nicole are definitely a power couple who can deliver life changing experiences to individuals and corporations. For nearly a decade, they’ve been two of the Ken Blanchard company’s most effective facilitators, building leadership and self leadership skills for optimal business results for Fortune500 companies around the world. Ken Blanchard has been a giant in the global training industry for more than 30 years. This knowledge and experience was the foundation for the book that had to be written because Hank and Nicole realized that they had something new and exceptional to add to their arsenal against the ennui that was endemic in organizations and in the general public.

Their extensive work with thousands of people, in 20 countries and dozens of small and large companies proved that people who reach the highest levels of success in both their business and personal lives, are those that have a clear purpose, a well-defined and a clearly articulated plan. This seems so obvious, but it isn’t. The book, ‘Live on Purpose’ is now in its second season as ‘Live on Purpose – Mastery Class’. The response to the book has been phenomenal and the two life and business partners have founded a new venture, Mastery Coaching & Consulting Pty Ltd (part of Mastery Global), and have developed a holistic learning strategy that includes a 2-day seminar, online course, webinars, keynotes, group and individual coaching.

Living on purpose is how they’ve lived their lives and as humble and grateful as they are today, the idea of influencing people in every walk of life, from teens to company executives is exhilarating. The insights gained from their personal successes and challenges, and the opportunity of working with thousands more people to create meaningful and passionate lives is what makes this part of their journey even more exciting.
