Some Organisations Michelle Has Worked With
What My Clients Say
Inspiring and immediately practically useful. Michelle practices with great integrity and authenticity.”
Jem MillsPractice Excellence Manager, Social Futures
Michelle delivered a key note presentation at the launch event of NSW Department of Trade and Investment Knowledge Co-op. She gave an informative and inspiring presentation on Personal Knowledge Management (PKM), which included a demonstration of her own PKM practices. Michelle challenged the Co-op members to take personal responsibility for their own knowledge practices and routine, and to take small steps towards improving these. Ultimately, she provided everyone with a great challenge - how we might best support people to develop their personal and professional knowledge networks and routines as part of their work and learning.

Michelle Ockers was the keynote speaker at our Administrative Professionals Conference. The theme of our conference was 'Be Future Ready’. Michelle's presentation stimulated participants thinking as she explored the changes that we are all facing and the future skills we would need. She stressed the importance of all of us taking responsibility for our own learning, rather than relying on our organisation providing it.
Her presentation was inspiring, visually stimulating, thought provoking and practical. What I appreciated most was that she tailored her presentation to the brief we gave her, learnt about our organisation and was very generous of her time. I would sincerely recommend Michelle as a keynote presenter.

Michelle met with our team about the online course we are developing and ways we might provide microlearning opportunities for our learners. She is a superb listener and a quick study. She demonstrated a remarkable ability to dive into an arena new to her and quickly gain her bearings so that she could provide value-added support. We were invigorated by the creativity and expansiveness of her thinking.

Michelle provided a great injection of energy when she facilitated a workshop for our Learning System Co-ordinators across the country in January of this year. The workshop focused on the development of an induction program, and also introduced the geographical dispersed team to Working Out Loud which they have embraced since the workshop. The workshop was exceptionally well prepared and presented.

Michelle mentored and supported our learning leaders to form an organisational learning strategy; including tactics to shift culture and bring in new learning technologies. She also led a very important piece of work on benchmarking which gave us insights into how to move to a learning organisation.
Whilst working with Michelle, I learnt so much - she has a wealth of knowledge and is practical in her approach. I highly recommend her for any organisation looking to boost their learning strategy or refine ways of working.

Being mentored by Michelle has enhanced my confidence in my own abilities and provided a structure I can apply beyond our sessions. I am more focussed than ever and believe I am moving in the direction I need to achieve my goals. Michelle is extremely knowledgeable and always links me to a range of targeted resources to continue my development after our sessions. She is empathetic, creative, connected and motivating. Life has a few major turning points. For me, starting mentoring with Michelle has been one of them.“
Kathryn HumeCapability Development Manager, NSW Health
This one-one-one mentoring session with Michelle Ockers is shaping up to be a pivotal point in my professional development planning for the year.
I have ended up with a personalised learning and development plan that I was brimming with actions that I could confidently start implement straight away.
Prepare to be nudged. Prepare to be stretched. Prepare to be challenged. Prepare to move purposefully towards achieving your goals.
