What our Clients Have to Say

Ingrid’s ability to bring people together and create a support network is incredible. It’s mainly brought about by her hugely generous nature. Thanks again, Ingrid


Fatema Saifee; The Chai Room

I needed to be accountable so I joined the Accountability Group. It has forced to me to have to come up with something every week which is so, so helpful, when freelance and not checking in with anyone.

Before joining I was low on sales again and needed some extra energy for the brand. It s back! I am selling in places I never thought imaginable.

I would highly recommend an Accountability Group especially for freelancers who work by themselves.

I love how you can learn from others, I have listened to other people’s problems and applied them to my own. It is fantastic and Ingrid always asks the right questions that you don’t WANT to think about but you MUST!

I love it, it gives me a real boost of energy, the office is beautiful and the group members are very like minded and fun. I would recommend this to anyone.

Ingrid is the best gate keeper with the right amount of tough love yet she has the biggest heart as a mentor who always has your & your business’ back.

I initially met Ingrid when she was one of the mentors for a Women in Business program I attended aimed at women who had recently started up their own businesses. I joined her Accountability group as I was looking for ongoing support once the program had ended.

I have found working on my own quite isolating, after a large corporate environment, and the group has been a tremendous help both to be able to bounce ideas off and also to provide encouragement and feedback. I find that the discipline of having to report back

3 times a month helps keep me on track with my goals and has pushed me to do things outside my comfort zone.

Ingrid’s extensive business knowledge and experience has been very valuable as has her positive, can do attitude.

I have also learned a lot from the other group members and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone starting up a small business


Jacqui Irwin, Care Financial

I have been a part of Ingrid’s accountability club for several months now and what I most appreciate about going to the group is the resilience top up I get from it.

In my experience a certain amount of starting a successful business involves taking knocks and getting back up again and again and again. I love the wins, I love it that I have created a product I genuinely feel proud of, I love it when others love my bags but there are still plenty of knocks along the way and I feel safer these days knowing no matter what happens if I go to the group I will always come away with a strategy, some ideas and the energy to make the next step.

In addition to the above, I love Ingrid’s generosity of spirit as she expertly guides discussion, and shares her wealth of knowledge and expertise. Ingrid creates a space in which everyone is genuinely supportive of one another. It is great to hear about other people’s journeys, what works for them, what they find challenging and how they meet their challenges.   I love having these people to bounce ideas around with.


Leandra Coffey, Founder of Fruity Sacks

Following attendance at a small business programme, a few of us met together to inspire, encourage and assist each other as we could in the development and progress of each of our businesses.

We soon realised that although this was a great incentive, we lacked direction and the benefit of an expert.

Joining the Accountability Group has given us the opportunity to encompass all of this under the guidance of Ingrid.  It is a collaboration of experience, enthusiasm and camaraderie.  I/we look forward to our sessions and feel part of a team working towards achieving each of our goals through the guidance of Ingrid and participation of all the members.

Doing my bookkeeping is the hardest thing for me to get my head around and the Tracker was a breath of fresh air for me

“Ingrid is a passionate and highly skilled trainer with an enthusiasm for watching her clients succeed. She clearly articulates complex concepts and helps you understand how to apply them to your own situation.

I had the pleasure of attending her new “5 Steps to Grow your Business by creating new income stream” seminar and highly recommend it to any business owner (or those looking to get into business).

From this seminar I have an action plan and clear path to growing my business in the year ahead and am confident others will benefit from her expertise.”
