I wholeheartedly recommend the ‘Future Discovery Programme’ initiated by the Natural Ability team as an important adjunct to a liberal education. The information it provides will help pupils to make better decisions about their futures and in certain cases will actually transform their outlook.

Thank you both for a wonderful learning experience this afternoon. All the staff were really impressed and spoke later about how much they still can learn about each other. (Leadership Staff Workshop)

Gerry Maloney – Headmaster – Toogoolawa School, QLD

I am writing to formally thank you, Mr Davis and Hillcrest for organizing the Natural Abilities team to come and assess the yr 10 cohort of 2017.
It is such a wonderful tool to guide us and our son, in his pursuit of a suitable career and the information provided on how he learns is invaluable. It has been great too, to see how enthusiastically he has embraced and engaged in the testing and then the report.
Thank you so much once again. It’s yet another reason that makes us proud to be Hillcrest parents.

I am so impressed with this testing and with the comprehensiveness of the report. Absolutely outstanding, and I don’t say that often. I think the information and insight it has given us is absolutely invaluable and I am so grateful to you and the school for sourcing this product and introducing it. Although I am now a staff member, too, as a parent, I just want to let you know how grateful I am for this!

Yesterday was fabulous. Ralph has changed the way he is working and is now a little less stuck. Thanks a million. Today we have made a huge leap forward.

Greg, Executive Director State wide non-profit (leadership team)

I found it most helpful personally and your comments in particular. Since then, the feedback has illuminated my typical ways of reacting and relating.

Ralph, Senior Executive State wide non-profit (leadership team)

We have a better understanding of our individual abilities and talents, but also the strengths of others on the team. It helped us to see what some individuals bring to the team that others don’t. I think it has helped us to use the strength of our diversity in styles and worktypes. It has helped us all personally, but also helped our leadership skills and how we work together in team building.

HR vice-president, major company

This was absolutely one of the most amazing processes I have ever gone through. It has taught me how to be a more effective leader and to understand my strengths and weaknesses.
