About Momentum 1st

Momentum First was founded back in 2003 when executive coaching was in its infancy in Australia.   Since then we have had the privilege of coaching thousands of leaders, teams and individuals across a diverse range of industries. Over that time we have learned what works and what doesn’t work in the field of leadership, high performance and organisational success…and of course, what doesn’t work. In the end it all comes down to understanding how people work and playing to our strengths.

The philosophy behind Momentum First is simple. We are the force behind your development as a leader, a business owner, behind your talent, capabilities, personal effectiveness, your vision and your passion.   Our sole purpose is to connect you and your team with your true potential and eliminating the obstacles to success. With unlimited possibilities and infinite resources at your disposal, standing up and standing out has never been more important. We will help you get there. Your vision + our coaching know how = your success. It’s time to get your momentum going now.

We provide executive coaching, team coaching, leadership development, facilitation, business coaching, coach Training and online workshops.
