Our Back Story

We met around 14 years ago and found a strong synergy in a joint passion for recruitment and a desire to develop the potential within people. We had spent years before in different countries carving careers as recruiters, managers, trainers and mentors. Our colleagues were often amazed at our ability to finish each other’s sentences. We would eagerly debate scenarios and arrive at the exact same conclusion from different angles. After leaving our last employer we went in different directions – in a way ironically building on our strengths.

Laura has always been intrigued with research and technology and would take up any challenge to find the ins-and-outs of a matter. She is passionate about coaching and a master at problem solving.

Michelle would organise and systemise anything that stood still long enough. She has the ability to create a step-step structure, plan and formulate information and has honed the art of communicating and transferring skills.

Years on we came to an obvious conclusion. We have so much information and guidance to give to people who need help to take the next step in their careers.

Our name says it all – EMPOWERED DECISION gave us the opportunity to teach you the life skill of career discovery and informed decision making about a path that will carve a rewarding and purposeful career. We use a thought provoking method to empower you to arrive at a confident decision and in that process differentiate your personal brand.

Our logo – was chosen as the spiral represents how life unfolds through a winding journey and change. Inward and self-discovery creates outward power and wisdom.

We have helped countless people shape a purposeful career.
