Kathy McKenzie – Fire Up Coaching

FIRE UP Coaching® leads the field when it comes to Leadership Training, Accredited Coach Training and coaching individuals to reach their potential. As a Registered Training Organisation (22458) we offer unique training programs both accredited and non-accredited to develop the individual potential that often lies latent in organisations. We can deliver full qualifications or customised programs of any length. We work with you to design the solution that will best fit with your strategy and budget.

Our flagship programs are our Diploma of Leadership Coaching and Mentoring (22233VIC) and Certificate IV in Business and Personal Coaching (10547NAT) both which align with the International Coach Federation (ICF) core competencies and are the most comprehensive and practical accredited coach training programs in Australia. FIREUP is also an ACTP (Accredited Coach Training Provider) with the International Coach Federation (ICF) training program.

Both our programs are unique in that we utilise a coaching conversation model called REACH which was originally developed by FIRE UP Coaching for Queensland Health but is now integral to all our coaching programs. The REACH Model has been acclaimed by many of our clients as superior to any of the previous models they were using. It is sophisticated enough to allow conversations of depth in any context, and has particularly been embraced by our health, education and emergency services organisations. We also utilise the power of whole brain thinking, positive psychology, neuroscience and strength based approaches to inspire our students and take them to new expanded levels of awareness.

Felicity Jane Digital focuses on growing the digital assets of local businesses across the Coast. I am the founder and digital strategist and we have clients all across Australia but our passion are local businesses on the Sunshine Coast. I have a background in psychology, marketing, project management, computer science and urban and regional planning and bring a broad depth of knowledge to all of my client projects.

My business passion at the moment is Local SEO – Did you know that the first organic position is now found in position 8 and sometimes 9? Next time you do a Google search for a hairdresser or plumber have a look: you will notice generally 4 paid ads .. then the map listing (that is where I work to get my clients whilst working to get their website ranking organically – and you are now starting to see paid ads located here too!) then generally a directory listing such as Local Search or Yellow Pages etc and then … the first organic position (right down the bottom of the page)! Only months ago being, even in position 3, was considered quite good .. now position 3 is on page 2 (and we all know that’s where the buried bodies are hidden!).

I joined the network a little over 12 months ago as an avenue to meet other woman and I’ve been amazed at the level of talent within the Club .. I’m not surprised that the Coast is being recognised nationally as an innovation hub!

I’m a single mother of one boy, Oscar, (as well as a labradoodle – ‘Finnegan’ and Cockateil ‘Beryl’ and i really really want to get a Devon Rex) who is 6″7′ and has just turned 16 years old. His passion is to be an American basketballer and he’s on track, so my time, when not on the computer, is spent at USC and other courts across the coast, generally scoring. AND he’s had his Learners for nearly a week so my heart and blood pressure are getting a work out!

My role within the Network is to look after its technology. We are going through a process of change so in the coming months, fingers crossed, we will have a fresh, user friendly, face for the group with easy sign-up, management of your profiles as well as efficient ticketing process and lots more. If there is something specific, technology related, that you would like to see the Network utilising please feel free to let me know and we can investigate – I am happy to say I don’t know of every opportunity available :).

If any of the Network ladies and their businesses are interested in any of the services Felicity Jane Digital offers (web design, hosting, Local SEO, SEO, Adwords and Strategy) please let me know you are with the SCBWN and I’ll waive any set-up fees or provide additional services to your main products.

I look forward to catching up with everyone at the last breakfast of the year with Matt Golinski and learning about our home grown FEMALE farmers who are showcasing their products .. Jane

My name is Roelie Schmidt and I own FITIN20, I am excited to offer the members of the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network with a choice of either

Roelie Schrijnders-Schmidt

My name is Roelie Schrijnders-Schmidt and I am the owner and manager of FITIN20. A completely new concept of fitness for Queensland, but with well over 5000 studio’s in Europe a proven extremely effective method to get fit, treat injuries/back aches and shape your body fast. We use German technology to help activate your muscles that you can’t reach with a normal workout, this way you can fit up to 6 hours of weighted workout in just 20 minutes. Perfect for after work or during lunch breaks, and it will leave you with more time for work or leisure. We also have programs that effectively fight cellulite and injuries.

Besides managing Fit in 20, my husband and I are also owners of THOR Aerial Photography. We deploy drones to take pictures and video from the sky, but also incorporate ground footage for corporate promotional videos and wedding videos. I manage the client contacts and edit all the footage into creative clips.

I also work as a veterinarian in Caloundra. While life gets hectic with three (completely different) businesses and a young family, I enjoy the combination of developing three types of creative thinking: managerial for Fitin20, artistic for Thor Aerial and diagnostic as a veterinarian. As I am still growing in my position as managerial director, and I have learned that I love to get inspired and learn from other positive role models in business. I am excited to meet other women in business to network and socialize with.
