It’s fair to say that if you’d pulled me aside as a kid and said, “Elizabeth, one day you are going to found a company where you teach people about communication, and you are going to thrive as a coach, trainer and speaker,” I would have laughed in your face, probably pee’d in my pants with anxiety, and then resumed blending into the wall (in that order!).
Over the course of life, experience after experience led me to understand the power and value of voice and the positive benefits and ripple effects from true connection.
The journey to UP started with a couple of Psychology degrees, frustration brewing in a decade-long Clinical Psychology career, and a craving to find a job that gave me a smile on my face when the alarm clock rang out. Thank goodness I found myself all out at sea in a job that required me to recruit staff. I had no idea how to assess a healthy person! My boss at the time gave me a copy of “If you want them to listen, talk their language: Communication, Motivation and Success in Business and Personal Relationships Using the Process Communication Model®” by Elisabeth Feuersenger and Andrea Naef, and asked me to read it within the week. I managed a few hours’ sleep that night and came to her the next day, having finished the book, ready to make a plan of action as to how we were going to assess the candidates and leverage their strengths to form an amazing team.
UP Communication partners with Webster&Co in order to professionally service clients and businesses across Australia and NZ.
In 2013, I leapt in faith and founded a start-UP business. UP Communication now operates in every state of Australia, and has an extensive suite of offerings for an impressive portfolio of clients.
