What People Say

We have conducted virtual training sessions for the Business Essentials Program in Perth and Sydney. 

Engine Room Business Innovation has also conducted virtual and online training on a national and global scale. 

"Prior to starting the program, we never really locked in time to work ‘on’ the business. We now have these scheduled times. Also, I have changed the way I approach emails. I try not to open until I know I have time to respond or act. This came from one of the earlier videos (from the pre-program material) on time management."
Roy Rao
Director
“The 1.5 hour virtual workshop and coaching each week has really helped me to cement the concepts that I need to implement in my business. Sometimes you want to tackle everything at once – so I often thought ‘where do I start?’ Engine Room does not leave you to figure it out, as they provide the coaching to give you the direction and the structure to move forward with clarity.”
Andrew Scanlan
Owner
"I thought the course was extremely valuable and the content very relevant. The structure was precise in the way it was put together and each module flowed into the next. The course material got all three directors focused on the business together for the first time in many years, it drove us to set a time aside to work on the course material which then led to us putting regular time aside to work on the learnings we got from the course. There was a lot in the people and marketing modules that I would not have picked up on intuitively so lots of benefit there."
Geoff Thorne
Director
"To Michelle and Glenn, I just wanted to say a heartfelt thanks for all your insights 'aha moments' and ALL the nuggets of gold (and Glenn- isms) you have given - it is ... so very muchly appreciated! You both are amazing - THE LEADERS in what you do! - I will miss you! I hope to stay in contact and find myself or team members in front of you again to continue learning."
Renae Pike
Director
