OUR TESTIMONIALS DO THE TALKING
Our Clients Say it Best
SVP Advertising Sales
Coaching has helped me set aside some time to think strategically about my business. It gave me courage to address a very tough strategic issue to the advantage of clients, and colleagues. This had a multi-million dollar impact. Really.
Chief Learning Officer Financial Services
The Executive Presence program is changing the power of the team’s capacity to work with others. I can see it in every single person who has gone through the program, but the real impact is when they tell me that they are consistently thinking about the impact they want to have when they communicate.
My increased focus on broad scanning, foresight, strategic alignment is going really well in so far as my greater ability to interpret what is going on in the business and how the team and individuals are working. It kind of feels like I was looking only through one eye before but now I’ve opened them both and can see everything!

About Business Acumen Gauge
Quad Assessment is the developer and provider of the Business Acumen Gauge (BAG). David has been the Director of Quad Assessment for over 8 years integrating the BAG program into organisations looking to enhance accountability and achievement for business performance, leadership effectiveness and profitability.
BAG was developed by Quad Assessment through research, as a result of recognising the need for an broader understanding and focus on leadership and organisational performance. It is a market-leading assessment tool that analyses individuals and their team’s current capability, knowledge and skillset to determine how they are effectively impacting their organisation’s performance while highlighting places for improvement that are of particular importance to the business. Quad Assessment through its research, has determined that these elements should be mapped, measured and managed in order for businesses to continue to grow and thrive.
Quad Assessment has defined the critical capabilities identified by top tier leaders and academics as being fundamental for organisational success. As a result, the BAG diagnostic process allows you to identify which of those capabilities are most crucial for your organisation and use the matrix developed throughout the program to map, measure and improve leadership capability.
