I finished the Game Plan course after being partially stood down at work during Covid-19. I saw this as an opportunity to reset and refocus. Greg’s course helped me define my value, better connect with my passion and supercharge my goals. Since finishing the course, I’ve been making great connections with influential people and have felt more confident than ever about who I am and what I stand for. The next few years are going to be awesome!

Rather than promising quick and easy wins, Greg’s GREAT method is as honest as it is practical. Have a plan, build effective habits, build a network, enhance your value proposition and build a strong history of performance. The GREAT method has helped me personally to focus on personal development and it has also been valuable for those that I mentor.

Craig Murphy, Henley Properties

I can’t put a value on what the course has given me. As for my purpose. Just to be the best version of myself in every aspect of my life and continue to learn and appreciate every opportunity I get.

Vaughan Jones, Wilmar Sugar

At a time when l was re-assessing my career ambition and broader life goals, l found the Chief Maker Academy coursework an invaluable source of advice, motivation and guidance. In looking to build career resilience, l struggled to get clear on my vision and chart my pathways. The coursework enabled me to identify my strengths and develop my professional brand, and in turn, craft my valuable profile and target roles l previously had not considered.

Darren Lawson, Telstra

For the first time in my 25 year career I was unemployed, redundant from a large company after a lengthy tenure, lost and unsure of the correct steps to take to find my next dream role. Greg Layton and his GREAT method helped me immensely to improve and outline my track record, build my entourage, and set my game plan of securing my dream role which I have now done.
